Raffles Design Institute: Learn The Best. Be The Best.


Raffles Design Institute Manila had an open house yesterday and I was able to attend the Photography Workshop with Sven Pfrommer. It was a three-hour session but I've gained a big chunk of what I need to learn.

I was a bit hesitant at first to join this workshop because I do not own a DSLR camera. But when Sven Pfrommer flashed the slide with these statements --

Your CAMERA Does Not Matter

Sven Pfrommer - Photographer, Lecturer, Visual Artist

Photographers make photos, not the camera.

A camera is just an extension of the photographer's eye.

Cameras are mere tools and equipment that aide the photographers achieve their goal.

Whew. I felt comfortable.
