    name:Samantha Louise Dorado

  28. We enjoyed today’s workshop immensely. Thanks to Miss Jojie sa inputs (and outputs?) on photojournalism.

    Thanks also to Ria for inviting us. It was nice to see fellow Davao bloggers let loose with their cameras. 🙂

  29. I’d like to thank all those who participated, and for Ria’s time and efforts in organizing this one for me to be able to share some life lessons with fellow bloggers. If you need to know anything else, I am just a text, email, blog or facebook away. Hope you’ve learned some stuff from me. 🙂

    Thanks,
    Jojie

  30. waaH!!! sadly I forgot about it (T_T)
    I have routine plans kasi during saturday that is why I completely forgot… huhuhu
    should have set my reminder kaso I also forgot to do so waaaa

  31. hi, i’m just curious, what made it a photojournalism workshop? as I have seen from the feedback from other websites, it was more on basic photography?

  32. @Estan, the workshop focused mainly on composing photos and how and what photos are news-worthy, rather than on the technical aspects of taking photographs.
