1. Halo effect enhances religious ambiance of the stone icons atop UST's main building in modified silhouette through selective photo editing, without erasing the colonial features of the building. Photo by Miss Alyssa Beltran.
2. Chandelier, stained glass and lantern. Without tripod this night scene can be captured with high resolution camera, within the range of 5 to 8 megapixels. Editing is needed to enhance contrast and colors.
3. Combining field photo and still life of the same subject gives a complete picture of the specimen - rambutan. The composite photo shows botanical characteristics of the fruiting tree and morphological features of the fruit showing the rind and edible pulp. This technique is recommended for technical photography. AVR
4. Macro and micro photography. Stone covered with green algae (lumot); microscopic structure of Lyngbya crosbyanum, a common green freshwater alga, magnified 50x under the Low Power Objective (LPO) of a compound microscope. AVR

6. Nature is perhaps the most popular application of photography, surpassing human portraits and events. Here the details of shy creatures like the land snail, (African snail), and hatchlings soft-shelled turtle are revealed for biological study.
