Fearsome as it may look, the barong is a benevolent being that uses its magic to restore the balance between good and evil.

Bali, not Banaue!

Found this shot while looking at transparencies from my old film days:


Its deep inside one of the caves in Cagayan. Shot with a Canon EOS 50 / Tokina 19-35mm / Kodak Ektachrome Elite 100. Plus two flash units set to IR slave. A Sekonic flashmeter was used to measure the flash output, and I remember having to crawl through mud and darkness to position the lights. There were no LCD previews in those days.

This was in 1999. ELEVEN FRICKING YEARS AGO!!!!! When today's digital shooters were still cryin' out for mama... :P

Damn I'm old... :P
