The Nayon Photographers who attended the May 19, 2013 meeting.
The monthly meeting of the Nayon Photographers’ Club is held every 2nd Sunday of the month, with the exception for this month. We were at Hacienda Escudero last week and we moved our monthly meeting today. The meeting place is still at the same venue – 2nd Floor of the Ortigas Building, Ortigas, Pasig City.
The meeting started around 2:30 PM with a prayer led by Peter. It was followed by the presentation of the meeting’s agenda and it was discussed one by one. Today’s topics include the Manila Memorial OTS. It was discussed by John Fernandez (past Nayon president). He also presented the importance of photography in 3 of the leading broadsheets in the country – The Manila Bulletin, The Philippine Daily Inquirer and The Philippine Star.
John Fernandez presented the trend of these leading newspapers to use photography in their front page to attract more readers. Truly, The PDI is the best among the 3 broadsheets when it comes to the use of relevant photos in their front page. Indeed, it’s worth taking a look at some of the pictures on the front pages of these newspapers.
After John’s presentation, some future events by the Club were discussed – videography workshops, nude or sexy photo session, the upcoming photo summit in Cebu, Photo World Asia 2014, among others. Members of the Nayon Photographers’ Club were also invited to other workshops that aim to improve public speaking, marketing and on-site videography.
Around 4:00 PM, we took our very festive meryenda of pansit, empanada, barbeque, and a variety of suman called tupig. Johannah brought the delicious pies (empanada) which were made by Pat-a-Pie. We would also like to thank Darwin Valdez for the delicious tupig.
After the meryenda, the photo contest (judging) took place. There were 2 Photo World Cup (PWC) themes that were judged – “Women at Work” and “Long Exposure”. The Nayon side contest has the theme “Bridges”. It was a tight competition between Team Pasig and Team CAMANAVA. A lot of Nayon members are from these two cities.
The meeting ended with the awarding of the winners and a picture taking of all the winners. The next Nayon meeting will take place on June 9, 2013.
