The Kaamulan Festival in Bukidnon, Philippines is fast approaching come March 02 this year, where the Street Dancing Competition is the highlight of the event. It is because of this festival that a group of photography enthusiasts have come up with an event that will give newbies, or some of the photography hobbyists and other "photographers", ideas on how to further understand some of the photography jargons, like understanding the Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO and other camera functions and its technique in using them.
The Bukidnon Photographers and Bloggers Society or its acronym "The Bukidnon BloPhers", with the initiative of Con Tour Blog and some of its members (Tupe Diaz and Earl Bolivar) who are also bloggers and who also love photography so much, presents to you the 1st Photography Workshop 101 with Shooting Festivals here in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.
One of the agenda of the group is to help boost the Province's Tourism Sector through improved photography technique especially in covering Festivals and exposed them through blogging, like our very own Kaamulan Festival, particularly the most awaited event, the Street Dancing Competition on March 02.
