I've just returned for my trip to the Philippines, I was in Manila for a 3 day Small Strobes, Big Results workshop as well as a speaking engagement for Nikon. Manila is a fascinating place, busy for sure! Traffic jams the likes I've never seen before, and a metro population of about 11 million people.
While in Manila, my host Tony Tan arranged for me to gain access to a roof top of Metro Bank in central Manila (Makati City). Here are a few city views from that vantage point.
Here is one of the photo taken during the SSBR workshop. I photographed Pamela Tan in this really cool old Wells Fargo Stage Coach. The lighting was pretty straight forward. 2 Speedlights used, the key light was an SB-800 with barndoors attached and the second was straight flash to fill the inside of the coach.
