    Akap Bata, Inc. (Akap Bata) endeavors to champion the welfare of Filipino families in general and of marginalized Filipino children in particular. Akap Bata, the only child-oriented party-list for the 2010 elections, recognizes that children’s welfare was not truly addressed in years past and thus sees the need for genuine and massive efforts to bring the children’s wide-ranging concerns to the forefront.

    I documented Akap Bata's 1st annual youth Art Camp last week end and the experience was very overwhelming, to say the least... that's how good the event and children were.

    i used my trusty e-pl2 + 14mm (dropping it 5ft to the ground in the process, but it's alright) e-p1 with minolta 50/1.7 and a little bit of the gf2 + 14-42 (i found the gf2 a very unnatural camera for me to shoot. i don't know what it is but i prefer my e-p1 much more than the gf2, usability is a lot better than the e-p1 but the comfort and overall handling of the camera is a lot better than the gf2)



    here are some of the images i took, i'm hoping to learn moer everytime i go out and shoot and this event is no different. it gave me a lot of freedom and realize what my weaknesses were and what i should do the next time i shoot something like it sometime soon :)

  2. Sounds like a very worthy cause, and this a great piece of photojournalism.

    Adubo, I think you are a master of light. People can talk endlessly about how a picture should look and what's good and bad and we never see them post a picture, but you let your pictures talk.


    best,

    Wow. Thanks Icon, coming from a great artist as yourself is such a nice feeling. But i think i have years ahead of me and i intend to keep it that way. Ill never want to stop learning. Ive never considered myself as good as compliments come, i take it as an opinion, humbling, but i try to keep moving forward and learn.

    I hope you enjoyed the emotions that the children showed as much as i did
