No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. ~Lin Yutang

BASIC PHOTOGRAPHY AT FPPF

My travel in Hong Kong triggered the birth of my WordPress Blog. This in turn started my interest in photography together with the expectation of making it as my profession in the future. To take things further, I devoted the five Saturdays of July for the Basic Photography class facilitated by the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF).

The FPPF was formed by a team of professional photographers and artists in 1987. It was formally integrated in 1993 with a common goal of promoting photography in the Philippines. They continue to dominate the camera work as they celebrate their 18th Anniversary on October 15, 2011.

The FPPF is the most popular photography workshops provider which holds regular monthly classes. Each class is supervised by top leaders in photography who never fails to inspire us to be the best.

From top left to right, bottom left to right: Ador Pamintuan, Joey Tañedo, Cecilia S. Angeles, Amir Alba, Dennis Araneta, Chris Malinao, and John Chua who gave us a surprise visit on the third day.

The Certificate of Completion was granted on the fifth day together with the class picture.

I will be seeing FPPF again for the Complete Digital Darkroom class. In this session, I will be learning the use of Photoshop and Lightroom in the digital post process.
