For more than two decades, the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF) is behind the unprecedented growth of photography in the country by offering basic photo course for beginners or hobbyists and special photo courses for professional photographers who want to learn more and be more competitive in the profession.
Beginners take the Comprehensive Basic Photo Course providing a multi-instructor environment for a broader perspective on photography. It teaches how to use the Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera as well as the new camera technologies.
In addition to learning how to operate professional level cameras, the basic photography workshop also teaches composition and elements of design, lighting theory and application, basic portraiture and product shooting, digital post processing and travel photography.
The workshop is conducted for 5 full day sessions on weekends and weekdays in the historic and picturesque Fort Santiago.
Instructors include Ador Pamintuan, Rey Castañeda, Prof. Cecilia Angeles, Prof. Joey Tañedo, Elwin/Noche Dennis Araneta, Amir Alba, Chris Malinao and George Cabig.
Aside from basic photography, the FPPF also offers courses on Advanced Photography, Wedding Photography, Food Photography, Strobist Lighting and Complete Post Processing and Lightroom.
The next 5-Saturday basic photo course starts on Nov. 11.
