Our project of photographers shooting photographers - our version of the Christmas exchange gift - is now on its third edition. Like previous years, a lot of interesting concepts and images emerged. The pairs were kept in secrecy and the photos were only unveiled during Focus Bulacan's Christmas party (Focus Navidad). An on-the-spot voting (1st-2nd-3rd place format) of present members and applicants determined the winners. (Click highlighted text for more info about Focus Portrait Project.)
