I've been there: Jojie Alcantara Photography Workshop

Posted by Kristan Tuesday, December 22, 2009

As a photography hobbyist, joining photography-related workshops and photo-walks is a great way to develop one's skills. Composition and proper lightings, these are one of the very basic learnings a hobbyist must understand in order to come up with variety of good shots.

Photography has been my hobby since my junior years in high school. Since this hobby is quite expensive to pursue, owning DSLR cameras and use of certain gadgets should be the very foundation.

I borrowed an Olympus E-500 from Orman Manansala, author of Ganda Ever So Much, to suffice my needs in shooting. I only got a handy-dandy digicam so far. My first official photography workshop happened last December 21,2009 at The Farm, Koronadal. That was my first time in The Farm.

Jojie Alcantara's workshop lasted for 8 hours. The event was jampacked by SOCCSKSARGEN Bloggers. Bloggers from Koronadal city and General Santos were there, most of us bagged cameras. The SOCCSKSARGEN Blogger's Christmas party was also held that afternoon.

The event started 15 minutes later after we settled inside the place's function hall. Everything was in order, each blogger then introduced their blog. Later on, the workshop proper started with a dose of the colorful photos taken by Ma'am Jojie. The Opera Campus Crew of MSU also introduced the features of the Opera browser, led by Alexis Chua, author of DeBlogged.
