Last night I attended a photograph workshop at UP Diliman. Thanks to my high school friend's sister who tagged and invited me to this event via Facebook. It was a free event, highly accessible and very enriching.
The event was a photography workshop called Conversations with Rick Rocamora, and was sponsored by pinoyweekly.org. Unlike other photography workshops I've attended, this one was unique. What made it different was the man, Mr. Rick Rocamora. He was a photographer with a purpose and passion for photography. It wasn't just about the technicalities and aesthetics of a picture. It's more about his work and the journey and life stories behind each picture.
The workshop was inspiring to me as a photo enthusiast and Filipino.
1. "Pictures tell the Truth."
2. "Get near your subject."
