DPP VI The Anniversary Party

After several attempts to attend a DPP event, I was able to attend this year. At first, I just wanted to pass by to check out the event. As the hours go by, and as I attend one lecture after another plus the live shoots, I decided to stay. I ended up staying until the end of the event.

The best photographers in the country in different fields of photography are there to share they knowledge about photography. They talked about techniques, gave photography tips and showed sample photos during the lectures; and they did not mind the strong heat of the sun and the people crowding to take photos during the live shoots.

All I can say is that I learned so much from the whole day event even if I was not able to attend all the lectures and live shoots because some of them are done simultaneously. The people who were able to attend the event saw the photography experts’ work and how they work.

I know I have a long way to go and I have so much to learn. We should never stop learning because even the photography experts, who have been taking photos for many years, say that they are still learning until now.

Joseph & Merilyn

A summer wedding at Pampanga. The wedding ceremony was held at St. James the Apostle Church and the reception was held at the Lakeshore. In spite of the summer heat, the bride and the groom are always ready to pose for all the photographers and videographers.

Mt. Romelo and Buruwisan Falls

I recently went on a hike with friends. It is my second time at Famy, but this time, we stayed overnight. It took us a little over two hours to hike up the mountain. It was tiring because of some steep parts of the trail and also because of the summer heat and our heavy backpacks.

When we got to the top, it was all worth it. We enjoyed the cool water from the falls after a quick lunch.

We had a small camp fire for s’mores after eating dinner at our kubo.

The next morning, we woke up very early and hiked down the mountain at 4:00AM in order to catch the sunrise at the top of the hill. We had breakfast at the hill while watching the sunrise.

The hike down was a little bit faster and cooler because of the early morning sunlight. We just had to be extra careful so as not to slide down at some parts of the descent.

I can’t wait to hike up another mountain!
