Frustrated photographer

I am a frustrated photographer.

I first had my first point-and-shoot digital camera when I was in my sophomore year in UST. I took crappy photographs here and there until memory card became full.

My first formal training came when I had to take the requires Photojournalism class. There I learned the basics of photography. But the biggest challenge was we won’t be using digital cameras but manual SLRs. Thank God I got a 1.5 for that class.

So for day 17 of my blogging challenge, I present to you some of my favorite shots from pre-photojournalism days to present. Looks like I didn’t improve. Haha!

This shot was taken a few days after I saw the hit movie One More Chance, where a very vital scene was shot at the football field.

It was the first day of our team-building and retreat at Caleruega in Nasugbu, Batangas. The best way to kill time is to enjoy the view and take photographs. Indeed, closer to nature.
