But not in the way you think.

I’ve always had an interest in photography. Took it one step further and signed up for one-on-one lessons with Mylene Chung at The Living Room Photography Studio along P.Guevarra. It’s an amazing place and words cannot describe what a great teacher she is. She’s mastered everything there is about the camera and is a pro at patiently breaking down in layman’s terms what it all means. Love the way that their studio feels like home. I had such a great time. I hope that they offer more classes so I have a reason to go back.

Today I had my last photography session. It was more like a refresher on all different settings, lenses and camera maintenance. So excited and inspired to shoot. Problem is, I’m having difficulty finding interesting places and subjects to photograph. Metro Manila doesn’t feel all that exciting. Any suggestions?

Are you interesting? May I shoot you?

    Photography has always interested me, but I’ve never taken the time to actually enroll in a class. I’m more interested in composition, light, color, etc than how to develop photos, though I realize that everything is interconnected. Personally, I like candid shots that really capture the soul or spirit of a person or a place. Some of my favorite photos are of people just caught in the moment. I try to capture the feeling of landscapes or cityscapes as well, but that is just so difficult.

    Maybe when shooting Metro Manila, you should focus on the micro instead of the macro. Find the essence of the city and take take photos that reflect the people, the kindness, the trendiness, the stagnation, all of the different elements that blend together to make Manila so unique. Also, one photographer I met in New York would link his photos together to tell stories. He showed them in sequence and explained the history behind the shoot. It definitely gave the photos much more meaning and depth (enough so that I bought the 3-photo series).

    Anyway, photography has always seemed like an amazing art to me. I can’t wait to see some of your photos!

      yeah I’ve been in a quandary as to what to photograph. I just want my work to be relevant just not some random usual stuff like buildings and the sky and grass and my pets. Not that any of that stuff isn’t relevant, it’s just not that exciting haha.
