For our August photomeet, Focus Bulacan is trekking to Binondo, Manila for a street photography walk. And to help guide our members in shooting the streets, our friends from Filipino Street Photographers and Litratista sa Daan will join us. Attendees will be divided into small groups of 3 to 4, with each group to be led by an FSP or DAAN shooter.
This will happen on Friday, August 21 - a holiday! Meetup is at the front of Quiapo Church at 7:30AM. After taking a group picture, the photowalk will commence at 8AM and end at 11AM. We will then converge at an endpoint, have lunch and exchange of ideas. An online contest featuring Focus members' photos will be held after the walk, with a panel of FSP and DAAN photographers as judges. The Top 3 placers will win a photography book each.
We advise you to wear light and shoot light. Comfortable clothes and footwear, preferably dark top and avoid wearing bright-colored shirts so as not to invite attention. The key is staying "invisible" as much as possible. For gear, one camera and one lens will do, preferably in the 24mm-50mm focal range for full-frame, while for cropped sensors something around 18mm-30mm should work well for your composition.
Focus members will have their own transportation arrangements for this trip. Outsiders are very much welcome to join, but we couldn't arrange your transpo for you. If you have questions, drop us a message in our Facebook page.
See you there, street folks! :)
