It’s been a couple of days since I returned from Singapore. Last weekend was spent working for the Travel Photography Talk for Sony Singapore’s Sony Digital Workshop. I and my friend and co-facilitator for Backpack Photography, Oggie was there to give a talk about Travel Photography and introduce the wonderful island of Batanes to the people of Singapore. It was quite a new experience talking to a mostly foreign audience at the Singapore’s Arts House (formerly the Old Parliament). It was a learning experience as well that we had to make some adjustments on our presentation for the 2nd day of our talk.
All in all I was contented with our talk. We may not have a full audience but I am always glad when people would approach us and ask questions after our presentation. It was great meeting different people. It was also a pleasure to rub shoulders with greatness like Mike Yamashita and fellow Filipino portraiture extraordinaire Manny Librodo who also did their respective talks that weekend. We were able to catch Manny’s talk before ours and we learned a lot about his transformation as a photographer.
Many thanks to the friendly and accommodating staff of Sony Singapore. These guys rock! They were able to lend us a couple of cameras like the Sony Alpha A77 and A99 SLTs which we shot with during our stay in Singapore. I will be posting some samples and impressions really soon. In the meantime, if you’re in Singapore, the Sony Digital Workshops is still on going every weekend until the end of April 2013. You may check their SDW homepage for details on the upcoming speakers. Many thanks as well to the attendees and some of the Filipino audience who were there to support us.
