Just got back from Boracay, via Kalibo, Aklan hoping we could get a glance of what their Ati-Atihan Festival would look like. But alas, the heavy traffic, crowded streets and heavy baggage prevented us from doing so.
Here’s some quick picks from the Bora gallery I’m currently uploading.
Taken using my Canon Rebel XT with the Canon 50mm F/1.8 & 10-22mm F/3.5
It helps if you understand or speak the local dialect so the kids won’t be too shy to get their pics taken.
At first, I just take shots before even asking them but it turns out you’re gonna get better poses if you ask nicely.
Even if I asked, I don’t usually get positive replies. I wanted to shot a kid while he’s doing some back-flips but he stopped when he saw me aiming my lens at him.
I also met one of the top professional photographers (dorm mate and old friend back in college) in the country, Jake Versoza.
More pics once I finished uploading them in the Photo Gallery.
