SM Mall Of Asia
Photowalks On A Sunday
It was a fun activity hosted by Sykes Photo Club, a kind of activity I was eager to join with. Being a member of this exclusive club gave me the opportunity to connect with other photo enthusiast and together we learn from each other. My learning with them is very evident on the change in how I take pictures. Since I signed up for the membership and having attended the free basic photography workshop that they hosted too, things just settled into place. I learned a lot, and change a lot in my style, there's a lot of important aspect that I missed before, I thought I only need to know how to adjust the manual settings of my DSLR and understand rule of thirds, there was more to it. Now when I take landscape pictures, I don't just point and shoot, I need to make sure that the horizon is straight, with foreground or background, and a focal point where I can focus, I also have to consider the lights.
Sykes Photo Club is an exclusive group of photo enthusiast, we all call ourselves noobie (Newbie) as our learning is continuous, the only requirement is that you have to be employed by Sykes Asia. Every kind of camera is welcome, DSLR was never a requirement. Hence the start of me being serious in photography, few of the members are already published and professional in what they do. We do share our works from each other, and I tell you it is varied. From Newspaper fashion spreads to magazine, to wedding and portraiture, to the use of lomography and creative use of Iphone cameras, heck, we are even encouraged to try film point and shoot cameras.
As in this photowalk, I was having a hard time adjusting aperture and shutter speed, the grey light is getting the better of me, one of the members came to my rescue. I can't disclose the name, but he is a published fashion photographer who has done amazing work.
The plan was to walk the length and breadth of Roxas Blvd, with SM Mall Of Asia as our assembly point. I was ecstatic but dreaded the long walks or that it might be too hot. To my dismay, it was a grey Sunday morning with rain drizzles, I even woke too early for this that I witnessed a nice Sunrise within Taguig area, just didn't had time to take a shot. On a Sunday, SM Mall Of Asia alone is bustling with activity. As the members are gathered, instead of cancelling, we took a walk of SM Mall Of Asia bay area before calling it a day because it was raining. So far, the few frames I got where good enough, I just need to practice using long range telephoto lens.
