“I am a Photographer” and other stereotype idiosyncrasies

33246735826035m.jpgI started my Photoworks classes yesterday under Leo Castillo. This is actually part of my “self development plan” which I’ve been putting off for some time. Photoworks is a word-of-mouth series of classes that started back in 2002 and has been raved as one of the better digital photography classes in the country. Session one was fun – it was defnitely something worth signing up for because it is meant to be experienced rather than “pare turuan mo na lang yung techniques na natuto mo ok?”

Other self development plans include enrolling in a fun physical activity to keep fit. I’m thinking of joining this group with my cousin. Does anyone do Airsoft? I used to enjoy this when I was young, and apparently airsoft guns have now evolved into really cool pieces of machinery. I want the sniper rifle.

Another self development plan includes traveling (alone). Im thinking of going to Singapore or Cambodia if the budget fits. Any suggestions where I can enrich myself somewhere in Asia apart from the Philippines? I realized that I haven’t been on a “real” vacation in three years. And who knows, maybe a rhinoplasty Toronto.

Whatever you do, do not skip Cambodia. 🙂 I am hoping to get to see Laos or Vietnamn or probably Beijing, China by next year. 😀 Those Would be nice places to see. Oh, and Indonesia. And Thailand of course. Dami… 🙂 Sino kasama mo?

Photoworks is in DPI, right? Tell me if you hear of a lighting workshop, ok? I keep asking there, but they haven’t had any on their calendars recently.

On your Asia trip, I’m envious. I’ll do that too – I just don’t know when.

thanks guys!

how much is the trip to Cambodia? Do people there speak english?

Dar, around how much did you spend and how long were you there?

Try booking a flight from Bangkok. It may come out cheaper than a package here.

Don’t worry about the language barrier. Siem Reap is very tourist friendly.

A piece of advice for someone looking to join the airsoft world 🙂

Believe me, you won’t be doing anything strenuous; a little running, some crawling and a lot of storytelling after games.
