DOST Theme Building

It has been a while since I last made a blogpost. Been busy doing non-tech, non-photography stuff... But when a friend asked me to cover the recent DOST (Department of Science and Technology) Theme Building opening ceremony (yes, it's Theme Building) I couldn't resist to dust off my camera and shoot some photos.

First there was the parade of the different DOST agencies...

There was, of course, a lot of dancing...

But, the highlight of the opening ceremony was the parade of the different Muses. Philippine Science High School, the school were I taught and which hosted the event, was regaled with beauty and pageantry. And of course, Filipinos love, always, a beauty pageant.

To cover the event, as I almost always do, I brought two cameras. One was the Canon 7D with a 70-200 lens and, this might shock you, the Canon Powershot G15. Since my style of coverage is a guerrilla style of event photography, I needed the long reach of the telephoto lens. But for those times that I needed a wide lens, then I use the Powershot. I don't want to change lens during a shoot of this kind: I don't want to miss any shot as much as possible!

Covering the event was great fun. And, after being away for 8 years, I was treated to a DOST that I didn't know exist before. :)
