    2012 Aliwan Fiesta



    Last Saturday, April 14, 2012 I photographed the Aliwan Fiesta in Pasay and Manila Cities. These photos were taken from 1:58PM to 6:08PM.

    The Aliwan Fiesta is the national competition for Philippine fiesta street dancing. All the towns, cities and provinces send their best dance troupe to vie for the one million peso (US$23,500) grand prize.

    Negative space in the first image below could be used to insert the "Aliwan Fiesta" logo. ;)

    How was the event itself? How was the traffic and the parking? honestly, it's more of the logistics itself that I worry about when it comes to such events.

    Andrew, I just hitched a ride with my friend who drove and parked the car. Best to charge your smartphone fully so you don't get bored in traffic.

    I was more worried about hundreds of photographers taking photos of the same thing. My strategy for this was to use unconventional focal lengths and differing perspectives. I should bring a monopod for a more elevated view.

    For a time I was wondering whether buying the fisheye zoom was a mistake. During Aliwan I am glad it validated my decision.

    In a well lit very colorful crowd the lens is a gem!
