Leysamfoto Creative Portraits

Leysamfoto Creative Portraits workshop held last November 17, 2012 at the Oriental Leyte Hotel was definitely a memorable one for me. Actually, an extra memorable one, if there is such a thing hehe… I was so privileged and honored to be conducting the workshop in tandem with the master portrait photographer and instructor Ibarra Deri. The workshop highlighted on lighting techniques for portraiture as well as understanding the principles and intricacies behind flash and portrait photography. Some of these techniques are really simple yet it’s hard to find them in books or the internet. The internet is so full of information sometimes we don’t know where to start or which is which… This workshop tried to simplify things and made it easier for photographers to grasp the concepts of lighting. I hope even with the very limited time we had, I was able to impart something to the participants. I had a blast, it was fun and learning rolled into one.

I would like to thank Sir Deri for giving me this opportunity to conduct side-by-side with him for this workshop. Despite the odds, I was onstage because you believed in your idea so much that made this into a reality. As always, my salute to you Sir! Thumbs up to the hardworking unsung heroes of Leysamfoto Club, Inc. – the officers and members who work tirelessly to bring workshops like this to Leyte and Samar; and to the models, make-up artists, secretariat and assistants – you made the workshop easy and fun! Grateful for the support of the sponsors who have believed in the thrust and direction of the club. And to all the participants – big thanks to you and hope to see you soon on Leysamfoto’s next big thing. Keep shooting!
