What happens when you put a camera in the hands of Legazpi's Trick Shot Boys?

Kidz

These kids live around the Cagsawa Ruins, and they know their stuff well. They can operate any camera - even my big, black EOS 7D - with ease, coaxing out perspective trick shots like these, no Photoshop needed. They'll make you blow the smoke over Mayon, or lean on a tiny-looking Cagsawa ruin, or fly high over the Albay countryside. The shots are funny as hell :)

The kids say they just learned on their own. But I think somebody must have taught them their tricks. Whoever this somebody is - I wanna buy you a beer!
