FPC on Photojournalism Experience March 28,2009

FPC conducted a photojournalism experience last March 28, facilitated by Linus.
Photo coverage:
1. Sea Festival
2. news
3. Street photography (human Interest on poverty)
1. Sea Side Story:

The first topic is about a story around the sea side of Manila Bay.
There was also an ongoing boat racing competition, people relaxing and some folks swimming on the shores.

Ice cream fun:
Summer is already here so these kids are enjoying there ice cream treats on the bay.

2. Lightning Rally Experience:

Urban poor leaders from Kilos-Maralita surprised Malacanang when they staged a lightning rally last Saturday demanding social protection for the country’s poor from the economic crisis.
The group stormed Gate 7 of Malacanang carrying banners calling on the government to allocate 50 billion pesos to humane and affordable mass housing as part of the 330B peso stimulus plan.

After their speech the Police official decided to disperse the demonstrators away from mendiola.

3. FPC on Poverty and Human Interest:

The Last topic we have that day is about Poverty and Human Interest, so the group decided to go to the deprived part of the metro.
Poverty is a common term in the country but having experienced going to a place where people need to work just to earn a small buck and seeing children help their parents work instead of playing, makes you think that somewhat you feel lucky that you could eat 3 meals a day and can afford simple stuff but makes you think also who can help these people with regards to their current situation…

Group pic:
After all those shooting, its time to have a nice group picture while the backdrop is a dump site..

Photo Description: FULL OF LIFE
Like a whole little world in that one drop.

Editor's Comments: - "Great capture on the reflection and great timing on the water drop."

Clothes: Harvey Cenit

Editor's Comment: - "The cropped shot did this photo justice. The photographer's an expert when it comes to portraits and it clearly shows. Good details and great use of lighting"

Softness in female portraiture still works best for me not only technically speaking but the way the model projects as well."

POW! 3rd Week of July 2008

Here are this week's FPC's PoW!s, in no order of preference:

pinoy ako-my pride and joy
"Pinoy ako - My Pride and Joy"
by: my fLEEckr.leeviraycahili
No Exifs Available

Photo Description: “One of the great undiscovered joys of life comes from doing everything one attempts to the best of one's ability. There is a special sense of satisfaction, a pride in surveying such a work, a work which is rounded, full, exact, complete in its parts, which the superficial person who leaves his or her work in a slovenly, slipshod, half-finished condition, can never know. It is this conscientious completeness which turns any work into art. The smallest task, well done, becomes a miracle of achievement.” --og mandino

Editor's Comment: "The boy's expression exudes confidence and pride... perfect for the patriotic colors of the hat and the title given. The filtered light on the face adds dimension to the portrait. it creates enough specular highlights to bring the portrait to life!"

- "Mabuhay Philippines! The first thing came to my mind when I saw this photo. Great colors. Mabuhay ang Pinoy! "

Photo Description: Went back to dumaguete to shoot the Pier and boy it was one hell of a day. I shot 4gb worth in the pier. I have a few more I will upload this week.
