LibRODiZed: 200 Photos, 200 Tips



200 Pictures, 200 Tips

a contemporary chronicle of my photography,
my evolution, my triumphs, my challenges...
a never ending journey,
new places, new characters, new inspiration...
this is just the beginning

(I posted my last pbase gallery on July of 2009. It's almost a year.
Eventually swamped with workshop requests from all over the world,
and because I am inspired to inspire others, I took a one year sabbatical leave
from my full-time job as a high school teacher,
and embarked on a journey.

It was, is, and will always be a fun ride.

Traveling around - Australia, Europe, the US, Middle East, around Asia and the Philippines,
I averaged around 5 workshops every month. I reached out to many photo hobbyists
from all over the globe, and learned a lot of new things along the way.
Here are some of the best photos I took from this "journey".

Some of my participants said I LIBRODIZED them.
I would rather say I LIBRODIZED myself.
Now my vision and style is clearer.)

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to my Librodization.:)

I'll be posting 200 pictures for this gallery. And for each picture, one tip will be imparted.
SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE LATEST ADDITION. And please come back.
