For our February PhotoMeet, let's have a fun shooting challenge!
We invite you to join Write With Light, a light painting challenge where participants will be divided into teams of four or five members. The teams will compete to produce the best light painting photograph. It will be held on Saturday, February 8, at the parking lot of Malolos Sports & Convention Center. The event will start promptly at 5PM with a briefing, assigning of teams, then the shoot proper. The teams will be given one hour to produce their photo.
Those interested, please sign up at our Facebook page. Take note that team designation will be on-the-spot and will be random. Participants are encouraged to prepare for the light painting shoot by researching and practicing the technique, bringing the required accessories to do light painting, and conceptualizing the photo they want to execute.
Here are a few useful online links that you can read to get a good grasp of light painting. We strongly suggest you read these :

Our first PhotoMeet for 2014 is the Halamanan Festival of Guiguinto, Bulacan. It is the 15th edition of the municipality's colorful celebration of plants, flowers, and trees. The festival is a week-long event but Focus will be there to shoot the Street Dancing and Float Parade Competition on January 21. Parade assembly time is 1PM at the Garden City in Tabang. Assembly place for Focus will be at nearby Eurobake at 12:30PM.
The parade will start from Tabang then end up at the Municipal Athletic and Cultural Center Gymnasium at the back of Guiguinto Municipal Hall. Official presentation and judging will be held at the gym.
We are allotted 15 photographer IDs that will give shooting access at the gym. Please sign up at our Facebook page (at the Halamanan Festival announcement post) to avail of the ID. It will be first-sign, first-serve basis but please take note that we will prioritize Focus Bulacan official members. Applicants and non-members may sign up and we will try our best to get you IDs.
Bring sun protection (arm sleeves, headwear/caps, or apply sunscreen) as the shoot figures to be hot due to its time schedule. Bring a bottle of water too so you can stay hydrated.
