The Focus Portrait Project is our annual year-end tradition of randomly pairing members to shoot portraits of each other. Instead of exchanging gifts, we exchange portraits. In 2020, due to the pandemic, we substituted a different activity for FPP (the Echo Photo Shootout). After a year, FPP is back!
This is now the 8th edition and this year, FPP is on-the-spot : participants were randomly paired and each team was given an hour to shoot and submit their entries. The theme for the contest : WEAR YOUR STATEMENT. Participants must photograph their partners using the same concept as the statement shirt they are wearing.
Here are the entries :
The entries were presented to our guest judges for online voting to determine the top placers.

Competition is fun
At Focus Bulacan, we strive to improve every member's photography skills. One way to do this is to constantly challenge each other with photo contests. All competition is posted here, for voting and for announcement of results. Good luck!
