Chinese New Year OTS

PiPho Chinese New Year Group Hug

Last February 8 (Monday), Pinoy Photography Organization (PiPho) welcomed the Year of the Monkey with its first On-the-Spot (OTS) photo contest* and photowalk for 2016. It was done during the celebration of Chinese New Year in Binondo, Manila.

Binondo served as a photographic haven last Monday for PiPho members with its rich texture, color and bountiful stories found at every corner of the place —— from the sidewalk vendors, the makeshift lions of street children dancing to the beat of empty bottles and buckets, to several groups of street dancers breathing fire out of their mouths.

The photowalk, headed and organized by PiPho members Erick Dantoc and Rocel Dantoc, started from Sta. Cruz Church at 9 in the morning and ended around the busy area of Ongpin in the afternoon. Both PiPho regular and probationary members walked around the animated streets of Binondo, capturing the lively celebration of the community. The group was able to capture a myriad of scenes, from the colorful patterns made by different objects to the most anticipated lion and dragon dances. The group was even lucky to witness a dragon manned by 100 people during the parade of Manila mayor, Joseph Estrada.

By 11:30, the group proceeded to Sincerity restaurant along Yuchengco street for a hearty lunch of oyster cake, kikiam, asado and Sincerity’s best-selling fried chicken. Afterwards, the group dispersed to various areas in Binondo again to continue their photowalk and to conclude the day’s activities.

Indeed, it was a good way to kick off the Year of the Monkey!

*The On-the-Spot photo contest will be judged and awarded on February 17 during the first monthly meeting of the organization.

PiPho Nifty Fifty 2015

Pinoy Photography Organization Photo Club would like to thank its members and the forum/fb participants for a successful Nifty Fifty on the 10th year of the Org! The event was held in Intramuros on March 7, 2015.

Nifty Fifty is a photo walk/contest that celebrates the “value for money” of the 50mm prime lens. Just like last year, this year’s contest has both individual winners and group winners. The theme for the individual contest is Intramuros Street Life. The group contest on the other hand involves 3 persons per group where each member of the group will submit 1 of the following: architecture, portrait or detail (all with the Intramuros theme). Each group must be able to complete the set (one submits an architecture shot, one submits a portrait shot and the last one submits a detail shot).

Congrats to everyone for a successful event!
