For five Sundays I dragged my sleepy ass to Fort Santiago...
I did not devote my Sundays appreciating the storied walls of Intramuros, mind you.
Instead, I took basic photography lessons under the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF).
The goal was simple: To be able to take pictures using my SLR camera outside the auto mode
I'm here to report that I accomplished that and more!
I learned principles in photography such as...

The workshop also exposed me to the realities of life...
and made me aware that I don't have the patience and dedication needed to become a good photographer, so don't expect any improvement in the pictures posted in this blog(haha). I still loved every minute of the sessions though and my only regret is not taking the class sooner.
For our last assignment, we needed to submit a human condition photo. This was my effort...
Several esteemed photographers were asked to judge the photos and I was pleasantly surprised when it was announced that I had the 10th best picture in class!

Well, truth be told, our batch consisted of only 22 students so.... but that's not the point. Just be happy for me, please!
The rate of FPPF's basic photography workshop is P4,200.00. For location, schedules, workshops, and other information, click here.
