Overall, it was a success and we were able to witness the events as they unfolded from Day 1 to 2 and here’s the complete summary of everything that went on.

DAY 1: Saturday

The day kicked off with a Volleyball Competition and the players surely got their load of action judging by their strokes that are full of power and enthusiasm.

Simultaneously going on at the early part of the day was the Sports Action workshop headed by Apple Tree’s very own great lens man, Clement Dampal and Canon’s Ambassador plus multi-awarded photographer, Jijo de Guzman.

Clement talked about how to shoot skim boarding and taught the participants some techniques then showed them some of his pictures taken with this sport.

After that, it was Jijo’s turn to discuss how to do Sports Action photography, he discussed some techniques and showed the audience some of his works. He also taught them how to maximize their camera functions by showing them which settings to use.

Later on, he also discussed about memory cards and which ones are ideal to use for their cameras. Several questions soon followed suit from the group and when it was all done a picture-taking session took place then the loot bags for the first 30 participants were given. Lunch then ensued at the pavilion and as soon as everybody got stuffed, it was time to apply what they learned by taking some good photos of any of the activities at the event to serve as their entries to the Photography Contest.
