One Great Saturday with the Crocs

Last Saturday, I attended a Photo-Journalism Workshop in Davao

Kasama ko si Kuya Avel and Davao Bloggers

Andami kong natutunan from The Jojie Alcantara

Very relax ang manner ng workshop style ni Jojie

It helped that dati na kaming magkakilala

She was one of the judges of our first Miss Gensan pageant many years ago

Isa pa, we’re both columnists of Sun*Star

Andaming images na pinakita si Jojie

Nagtaka nga ako kumbakit sa Crocodile Park ang venue namin

Kasi nga may LCD projector na ginagamit

So malabo talaga ang tapon ng images

I eventually realized kumbakit dun kami nag-workshop

May assignment palang ipapagawa si Jojie

Photo-Safari ang drama!

Susme! We were tasked to take shots around the park…

Siempre kailangang gamitin ang natutunan

Rule of thirds.

Pattern.

Portrait.

Details.

Background.

Foreground.

At kung anik-anik pang eklavu.

Eh ang init kaya!

Hahay bahala na si Vicki Belo

Mas type kong matuto

So go shoot agad kaming lahat

We were given an hour for our assignment

And we have to submit five of our best shots

Ang sarap pala ng feeling ng photo-safari

Exciting.

Sobrang ngarag din.

Heto ang mga best shots ko.

I’m still learning so please be kind.

And by the way, thanks to Davao Bloggers for inviting us!

Here goes nothing…

worm's eye-view

Buti pa si Lyle and Gwing, walang kiyeme sa pagdapa sa damuhan

Uber sa init kasi and ayokong sumpungin ng allergy

Kaya nakatayo ako nung kunan ko ito

Hawak ko ang camera ko and extended my hand downwards

I didn’t realize na nakuha talaga ang dalawang subjects ko

This is my winning shot!

anong tinitingin-tingin mo dyan?

anong tinitingin-tingin mo dyan?

Ito talaga ang hirap kunan

May cage kaya around the eagle

And super-mega dedma sya

Patience is a virtue, ‘ikanga…

run for your lives!

run for your lives!

If not for the bright light

This would have been a perfect shot

Natiming pa naman ang takbuhan ng mga bata

will sing for food

will sing for food

Antagal kong hinintay na gawin ito ng isda

Sarap ng feeling when you get your desired shot!

waiting for prince charming

waiting for prince charming

This is my horizon shot

Ang ganda kasi ng clouds sa background

Our model, Gwing, was a good sport!

all work and no play

all work and no play

Ang hirap kunan ng moving objects

Andaming mali sa picture na ito

Pero love ko pa rin kasi pinaghirapan ko talaga

read the sign please

read the sign please

Tuwang-tuwa ako sa picture na ito

Ito yung klase na:  THIS PICTURE TELLS A STORY type

do not disturb.

do not disturb.

Swerteng shot ito.

Lipad ng lipad kasi ang mga butterflies.

Am sure isa ito sa mga pagod

namumula ever so much

namumula ever so much

This could have been sharper

Kaso humahangin kasi

congressman, is that you?

congressman, is that you?

Naka-encased ito sa glass so iniiwasan ko ang reflection

This shot is dedicated to all politicians

Anyway, I also learned an important lesson from Jojie

Kahit may rules, go for broke and break the rules.

And CROPPING is my new friend…

Thanks Jojie for everything!

And thanks Avatar Media for making this possible.
