We're formally launching the Insight Workshop Series with BASIC, a free digital photography workshop slated to take place on November 15, 2014. Venue will be Roxas Hall in Bulacan State University's Malolos Campus (we will privately notify attendees of the specific room number). Focus Bulacan is proud to be collaborating with BSU's Office of the Student Publications in making this initial workshop happen.
How long is the workshop?
It will be a one-day workshop that starts at 8AM and ends around 4PM. Focus Bulacan members Jer Sandel and Jay Salvador will be the speakers. Mr. Sandel will be discussing the basics of digital photography while Mr. Salvador will dispense tips on how to shoot better photos.
What will be discussed?
Topics include (but not limited to) the following : brief history of photography and understanding the camera, the essential principles of photography, operating your DSLR and digital cameras, guidelines for photo composition, basic post-processing, and practical tips for better photography.
Who can attend the workshop?
The workshop is open to both DSLR and digital camera users. Since this is our pilot workshop in the series, we are limiting the attendance and will offer only 30 slots for interested parties. 15 slots for (current) BSU students and 15 slots for non-BSU students.
Is it really free?
The workshop is absolutely free. You will pay nothing. However, we will not be providing lunch to participants. Workshop attendees may go out of the BSU campus (or eat inside campus premises) during the one-hour lunch break.
How to sign up?
If you're interested to attend the workshop, PLEASE READ and follow these instructions :
1.) Make sure you are available and will be able to attend on the said workshop date and time. Be responsible in signing up. We are offering limited slots, so we don't want to waste slots by giving them to people who suddenly might not show up on the day of the workshop. (We will blacklist those who are no-shows for our next workshops.) Also, we prefer to give slots to people who will attend the whole duration of the workshop. So if you're planning to attend only the morning (or only the afternoon) portion of the workshop, we advise you not to go ahead in signing up.
2.) If you are sure to attend, please send a PRIVATE MESSAGE (not a comment) to Focus Bulacan's Facebook page stating you are interested to attend the workshop, then include the following personal information :
- Full Name (real name)
- Date of Birth
- Mobile Number
- Email Address
- Address (Baranggay and municipality will do)
- DSLR or Digital Camera used (Brand / model)
- Years since you started shooting or since you bought your camera
3.) Wait for our inbox reply, then wait for a confirmation text message. Reply to our text message to confirm your slot. We will give 24 hours for you to reply thru text.
4.) Once we receive your text message reply, we will then confirm your slot. We will also publish a list of confirmed attendees about 3 days before the workshop.
* Please note that we will only be offering 30 slots. We will be using the time stamps of your Facebook private message to determine the order of priority. If you've run out of slots, we will put your name on a waiting list, and will contact you if in case someone from the list of first 30 slots back out.
** You have to sign up personally. You can't sign up for someone else, and just the same, you can't be signed up by someone else.
*** In the unfortunate case that you have to back out, please inform us ASAP so we could offer your slot to those in the waiting list. Please be responsible with your sign-up and slot.
That's about it. Follow these simple steps and you're all set. Do it early so you don't run out of slots. We'll see you on November 15! For questions or clarifications, drop a comment in the Facebook box below.
