ManilArt10, the country’s top international art event now on its second year had attracted a lot more leading art galleries and a few international. Art collectors and hobbyists alike filled the event from July 30 - Aug. 1, 2010 at SMX Convention Center, Pasay City. Almost sixty exhibitors joined and showcased their finest art pieces!
With an entrance fee of P200 or $4.50, participants of ManilArt10 had the chance of attending any of the seven FREE art lectures. I was lucky enough that ManilArt10 had "Artwork Photography" by Ross Capili, an award-winning professional photographer and visual artist. He talked about the techniques and legal ways in capturing a particular painting or artwork from a point of view of a novice photographer to those who make it as a living.
He emphasized that photography is a business anyone can easily put up. He also said that a photographer should be always cautious in publishing his shots that he should be aware when it comes to copy rights. A resposible photographer should make sure that he be credited in his works: at least a name below the picture etc. Uhum! the lecture is just so timely for ManilArt10 since it is about Art Photography. Check out these photos I took if I absorbed anything during the lecture:
