Tikim, Takam, Tsalap
By Raneil Antonio Ibay
The month of March brings in the summer wind, cool beaches and delicious food. Not just any kind of food but Filipino food we’ve all come to love throughout our rich history and culture.
And this month, Framed Shots Camera Club authors the second theme for the FPPF’s Photocup 2011 titled “Tikim, Takam, Tsalap”. This theme among others was suggested by FSCC member Nick Olayao and made it to the official themes for 2011.
In line with this, FSCC conducted a Food Photography workshop last March 19, 2011 at Carlo Zamora’s Sampaloc, Manila residence. Nick Olayao shared his food styling techniques while Carlo Zamora, Rico Gutierrez and I shared lighting techniques to club members. The morning session consisted of PowerPoint presentations while the practical application was conducted in the afternoon session.
Also present for the hands-on lessons was Carlo’s brother and photographer/businessman Chie Zamora. Chie gamely assisted members and gave practical advice on how to light food.
A day of sharing, shooting, eating and drinking beer. What more can you ask for? Bon appétit.
