The FPPF is holding another photography workshop on February 23, Friday, in Baguio City in time for the yearly Panagbenga flower festival in the summer capital. FPPF President Pablo Beltran said the workshop is free, made possible with the generous support of sponsors Canon, CameraHaus, Philippine Information Agency, and AIM Conference Center Baguio of the Asian Institute of Management.

Beltran said the photography workshop will be held at the AIM Igorot Lodge. Just go there early to register, at about 7:30am; workshop starts at 8:15am. Photography instructors from the FPPF will be there to teach.

Workshop topics include Principles of Composition – a discussion of elements of design, lines, shapes, forms, perspective and lighting principles, which aims to make participants aware of artistic designs and principles, and Travel Photography – which will tackle photography on moving subjects, how to anticipate actions and how to position in order to capture flowing dances, emotions and movements during the Panagbenga street parade.

Participants are eligible to join the on-the-spot (OTS) photo contest with pictures taken during the street parade and flower festival. Cash prizes await the winners.
