Another round at Quiapo
Practiced photography at Quiapo (again) while waiting for the technicians to fix my camera flash (again).
Quiapo's Hidalgo Street is a place that's overflowing with details. The crowded thoroughfare is clogged with people, wet market goods, cheap plastic toys, and umbrellas that blot out the sky with a vomit of color.
All these potentially distracting elements could pose a challenge for any photographer who wants to isolate the subject in the picture. Since I had an hour to waste as the technicians fixed my camera flash, I roamed around for another round of shooting practice.
This is the second time I've sent the external camera flash unit for repairs, but I have nothing to say against the company that made it (Nissin). That thing takes quite a beating: about 2 drops to the floor/ground for every shoot I take part in.
All of these were shot with my trusty Canon Powershot S110. For a bit of irony, the dial on this camera stopped working while I was on my way home. From the camera repair shop.
Fortunately, this gadget is still under warranty. However, that means another trip next week for another repair.
