There are a couple of Photography Talks treats for you this month of March. For our Singaporean friends, Backpack Photography will introduce the wonderful world of Batanes and talk about how it would be an ideal location for Travel Photography. Starting the end of March, Sony Singapore will have a series of Sony Digital Workshops geared to improving ones photography and to kick of the opening weekend of March 30-31, 2013 myself and co-facilitator for Backpack Photography Oggie Ramos of Lagalog.com will have a couple of sessions on “Batanes: A Session about Travel Photography“.
For me Photography is like learning how to ride a bike or driving, once you learn the basics, it should be second nature to you in order for you to speed away and shoot. We invite you to learn the fundamentals in photography and apply them on a weekend in Corregidor Island for Backpack Photography 101. Learn about history while you learn about photography. Explore the Rock while you explore your photographic talents. See Corregidor in a new light.
Join our 3-island Photo Tour and Workshop.
Explore the verdant sights of Batan.
Spend an overnight on serene Sabtang.
And venture to the wilder coasts of Itbayat.
Experience Batanes in a new light.

I can’t believe it’s almost over. I woke up Sunday morning to see the group already up and ready to leave for the airport. Munching on their breakfast of tuna sandwich and a cup of coffee in hand, I also noticed their baggage clumped together at the reception area. I greeted them good morning. Everyone’s already prepared. I brought down the Selphy Printer for a last minute request to print. And as soon as we heard the Seair plane started to land, we hopped in our jeep and sped to the airport only a few minutes away.
Ever since the workshop started we’ve been waking up earlier than the sun. We were joking most of the time that we’ve managed to accomplish a lot before 9am (when one of the participant’s alarm would start ringing) than on a usual day. Even on the last day of our workshop, we had to wake up a tad earlier. We noticed that the days are longer here in Batanes, by 5am we could already see the sky light up. So by 4:40am, our jeep was already rolling towards Valugan Bay.
