Quick Update

Bokeh Christmas Portriat

Kryz Uy’s Christmas Bokeh Portrait. Taken at Dahilayan.

Wow, it’s been awhile. Sorry for the long absence but I’m backkk and with so much to share.

First of, I was thinking of making a Christmas bokeh tutorial. I know, I know, it’s been done before. But it’s really just a pretty effect. And whenever I see photos like this (see above) I get all warm inside. So if this is something you’d like to see, hit me up in the comments and I’ll put something together.

A wishlist of sorts

It’s November and Christmas is only a few weeks away. Is everyone as excited as I am? I have loads of photos to show you, but I’ve been swamped with shoots upon shoots and I can’t share anything just yet. So instead, I’m making a random list that could possibly pass as a gift guide. Or not, like I said- random.

1. Short hair.

Not really a gift I know, but I’ve been obsessing about cutting my hair for ages now. Every now and then I get itching to cut off all my hair. I just can’t help it. I’ve never been the type to be patient enough with Rapunzel-long-locks. Unfortunately, I have biology going against me. With cheeks like mind the short hair I crave just makes me look like a pudgy little boy. But then at least, I’d have the body to match! Help me decide, strangers on the internet, what do you think? Keep it or cut it off?

2. Fuji xpro1.

Despite the mixed reviews (and price tag) on this cam, it still haunts my every waking moment. Well, ok, maybe not. But I definitely think about it a lot. Just read this review from Zach Arias and tell me you don’t feel the same! I know, I know, that’s Zach (first name basis, we’re tight that way) who is to say your pictures will turnout as amazing? Valid argument, it’s the photographer not the camera, but just look at it!

Ok, maybe I just have gas (gear acquisition syndrome).


3. Wacom tablet

I got mine 2 years ago and it’s my favorite thing ever. Sure you can get the job done with your mouse but think of your wrists! I have the Intous4 but they’ve rolled out the Intuos5 and it looks good (there I go again with the gas), I definitely recommend this.

4. ONA bag insert

If you travel a lot this is a fantastic option to have. When I went on my China and Eurotrip I lugged around a huge backpack and spent my days wondering around like a sweaty turtle (eww).

5. Ceramic alarm clock

So chic, so want it.

6. Muijo iPad sleeve

I’m starting to see a pattern in my choice of accessories….

7. Awesome typeface bookends

Ok, that’s all I got. For now. What have you been obsessing about? Hit me up in the comments, I’m desperate for gift ideas!

Big Red

Merry Christmas from all of us (it’s just me really) here at Jackkaye Photography :p

I look like a big red twit, I know. But wait, there’s more! Here’s a little something for those of you (hi boogie!) who read both my sister‘s and my  blog. Happy happy all around!



Red Cups are Back

You know you have been brainwashed by advertising when…


…red cups with snowflakes on them signal to you that Christmas is here.

Hi, My name is Jacklyn and yes to me red cups = Christmas. I know Christmas is so much more than that (as my sister pointed out to me when she realized the only reason I wanted to go to the mall was to buy my peppermint mocha and take this photo) but seriously, can i help it if it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside?

Sigh, Merry Christmas everybody :)
