I recently attended Parc Cruz‘s Portraits Workshop… Amazing! It’s always good learning something new! 🙂

It was a very rainy 2-day event, but nonetheless, my fellow participants’ mood was never darkened one bit. I can now say I can shoot and post-process at acceptable levels 😀  Very happy how I got to know how to use my camera. It’s really funny that sometime people just buy things without reading the manual.

Thanks to the Studio54 organizers and Sir Parc for bringing it on!

This newbie is happy 🙂

Here are a few of my outputs for Parc Cruz’s Portraits Workshop:
