My World#80 Taking The Photography Workshop

After a lot of delays and postponement, I finally attended a photography workshop which is sponsored by Fotospeakmedia. We had a lot of activity exercises and I can tell you that I sweated buckets doing them.

I like it that the workshop was mostly done outdoors. On the first day, we did the lecture-workshop under the shade of bamboo trees in Tribu K'Mindanawan amidst replicas of houses of the indigenous tribes of Mindanao.

For our first activity, we were told to take pictures of the native dancers who performed for us. My head was still swimming with aperture, exposure and such so it took me awhile to start taking pictures of the dancers. In the meantime, my classmates were all clicking away. Ah..the pressure!

On the 2nd day of the workshop, we transferred to Loleng’s, a mountain resort that is located about an hour drive from downtown. This time, we were taught about handling artificial lights like the flash and strobe. Afterwhich, we were told to explore the area to shoot patterns, shapes, lines and etc. Later in the afternoon, we did glamour shots on three real models. How awesome is that!

The lecturer throughout the 2-day workshop was Mr. Jomel Gregorio. A very engaging and informative lecturer, it was really a privilege to learn from him.

Hope you had a great time learning, despite sweating buckets. Love the motion blur of the first shot, though her face can be in better focus.

Ha! As if I had a right to say that. I'm just glad I don't have to worry about all that with my little camera. (Though I do, of course.)

Congrats on that workshop. You will shoot like a pro in no time. The girl in motion is a great start. Not easy to shoot at all.

Lucky for you, I want to attend photography workshop, it's too expensive here and they taught in Chinese...
Nice shots for starting like you!

I don't know if my comment got in, but I though that I too would be needing to learn photography the proper way soon.

Hope it was enjoyable and productive two days for you.

Always good to learn the basics. And always good to read the manual.
Lovely photos.
