This place served as the seat of government of the First Philippines Republic under General Emilio Aguinaldo on 1899. It was a very good venue for photographers.

FIESTANG KULIAT 2011.
It was followed by a series of Photography talks by fellow Kapampangan photographers who have marked their names in the photography world here in the Philippines.
First was Mr. Borj Meneses. He talked about how he started as a painter and eventually to graphic design and photography. He made a point in following your influences. What really caught me with his lecture was “you can never be a master of everything”. His secret, “Practice... there is no shortcut” (that was what he said on his last slideshow after showing all the nude photos he took). And he has a good sense of humor too.
Secondly, Mr. Lee Viray Cahili. He told a short anecdote on how he shied away from photography and how his passion affected his personal life and the life of the people around him. It was also inspiring to hear how he won quite a number of photography contests one of which was the Photographer of the year for Photoworld Cup 2009. His tip was “it’s all about research”.
Lastly was Mr. Glenn Tungol, a fashion and celebrity photographer. He gave a brief lecture on how to study the lighting used in a photograph, proper studio lighting position and how to deal with models during a photo shoot. He is truly a master with lighting. A
very entertaining and energetic person as well.
Fortunately one of my entries for the exhibit was among the 3 runner ups. That was good enough to complete my day.
It was exuberating shooting with fellow Kapampangan with overwhelming enthusiasm for photography.
