The Digital Photographer Philippines 9

My nephew, the wife and I went to Digital Photographer Philippines last March 21, 2015. It was a free event though you have to register for it. You can do so online or you can register on site. There were a lot of participants, photo gears and, of course, photographers.

The participants were treated to product demos, photography lectures, and some were even allowed to use their own cameras to photograph a lady dressed as an animé character. 

It was a fun, day-long event, though I wish they had a different set up regarding the lecture/demos. For some of the demos, the speakers stood on stage, gave a short lecture, then asked the people to move towards the boxing ring. This was utter chaos; the people have already settled in their seats but then were asked to transfer towards the ring. And also, since the sound system was set on stage, we really couldn't hear what the speaker was saying when he was on the boxing ring... That made no sense to me.

Also, using the boxing ring for the demo "stage", for me, didn't really work. The ropes kept getting in the way of the viewers.

However, we were also treated to some amazing bike stunts! I just wished that the area was cordoned off - the event bordered on the dangerous because any of the participants could have been hit by a flying bike...

There were also some flash mob dancers!

Being a photography event, a lot of people came armed with their cameras...

The last lecture was done the way I would have set it up: both the lecture and the demos were done on stage - well, it was supposed to be that way, except the light triggers failed to work...

But then, we were treated to some beautiful belly dancing so we really couldn't complain.

But, all-in-all, it was a really fun and exciting event. Here's looking forward to next year's DPP!
