EPix06







EPix06 PRESS RELEASE
For immediate release
by: rosscapili

EPix06 BEST IMAGES' TOP TWELVE

Thousands submitted but only 12 were chosen.

The above line may somehow be a parody of that cliché we utter to emphasize excellence
when talking about that thing called `calling.' But the `bests' of Epson Photo Imaging
eXposition 2006 are no parodies at all. The photographers behind them were called and
chosen because of the beauty, originality and soulfulness that their images show.

EPSON, a leading name in digital imaging technology, has certainly made the right
decision to turn its photo competition into an annual affair, following last year's successful
debut launch. A great number of participants from all over the country, both professionals
and enthusiasts, have joined in this year's EPix challenge, pouring in entries for the two
categories: `Vanishing Scenes' and `The Filipino Achievers.'

Organized by One Workshop, Inc., a coffeetable art book was produced to showcase the
top 200 photographs from among the thousands that competed. Twelve of these were
adjudged winners. But the fact that all 200 photos are appearing in alphabetical order
(based on the entrants' surnames) is stressing the point that their inclusion means they're
no longer just entries vying for honors… they are themselves honored.

Over all, the judges were unanimous in their view that art of photography in the country is
very much alive and vibrant. "I must say that they really upped the ante for this year",
Randy Kanapi, Marketing Head of EPSON opines, "They really took advantage of this years
themes—Vanishing Scenes and The Filipino Achiever—and produced works that made the
judging process more difficult for all of us." Ed Santiago, Chairman of the Board of Judges,
nods in agreement. "I've been a photojournalist for many years now and indeed, the works
of the enthusiasts are already of professional grade."

TOP 12 EPix06 WINNERS

Vanishing Scenes:

1st Place Carlito Felicen

This photo of a vintage fan, to me, signifies a life cycle. The more the blades turn, the
more things appear to remain the same. As if nothing changes.


2nd Place Richard Larrios
" Bahay Kubo"
Metro Manila

A native house, unique to the Filipinos. Taken in an Island located in Baler, Aurora. This
place, after a typhoon hit the area in 2004 is gone already.

Vanishing Scenes:

One of the most Ancient houses in Negros with roman architectural design is located in
Talisay City, beongs to the Lacson Clan. The native setting against which such a structure
exists is quite an interesting sight when the shot was taken very early in the morning.

2nd Place Ma. Louisa C. Lopez
" Reflection of the Past"
Metro Manila

An Old Spanish Colonial house reflected on a puddle of water along the wobbled stone
Crisologo Street of Vigan, ilocos Sur.


3rd Place Christian John B. Pascual
" Catdan Ku (Tinitirhan ko) "
Metro Manila

An ivatan stone house typical in Batanes. Modernization is steadily replacing the
traditional materials being used for construction.

As the summation of a successful project, this annual photo competition hopes to
continuously encourage the new breed of photographers to come up with something
admirably competitive, while inspire even the deans of photography that no matter how
prolific and experienced they are, possibilities always flow into an endless stream of
beauty for them to still capture.

EPix06 Best 200 Images exhibit will run until November 15 at OWG G/Level 2241 La
Fuerza Plaza II Don Chino Roces Avenue corner Sabio St Makati City.
For details please contact Ross Capili at 09176273193 , 8192074 , email

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL PARTICIPANTS, THE 200 FINALISTS, AND THE TOP TWELVE!
SEE YOU ALL ON THE NEXT EPIX!

Photoshoot day out and Comic-Illustration Course


yesterday was a photo shoot day out for me, going with Lace in her work for a photo shoot in CSB. Above is an experimental shoot for the set and lighting before proceeding to the real shoot with models. I did some saturation and auto levels settings so that the photo will be lively in colors.

Also thanks to Don Villaluz for volunteering to be one of the photographer and helping me around the photo project. He also introduced me to this photography community of Digital Photo Enthusiasts in our country. check out http://www.digitalphotographer.com.ph/

Every I need to know are all in there. especially the one on how to DIY your own Studio that you can get and use the materials seen in ACE HARDWARE. its a one cool learning website for photography.


Benjie and Azrael

During the photo shoot, one of their model is Benjie Marasigan, a professor for animation in DLS-CSB. We know each other during the old years of 1999 when he was still in Art Farm Asia and I was there helping around in promoting the first animation crash course organized by Art Farm Asia. On the following year, we organized the AnimeXplosion 2000. Benjie told me about this new course that they are waiting to be approved in DLS-CSB. And every comic creator and illustrator and also those who want to learn drawing will be happy to hear this news.

They are waiting for the approval of a new course - I think it was called Comics and Illustration.
its a course with diploma, I forgot to ask how many semester of that course, but Benjie said that the course focuses on comics, illustrations and caricatures. I'm not sure when it will be the launch of this course, but they said that they are targeting June 2007.

Also that day I met the creators of the animation short film Doodle of Doom, Nelson Caliguia Jr and Jason Confessor. Which won the grand prize for the Nicktoons Network Animation Festival. Its funny to meet again with Nelson coz the last time I saw him with his family was the day when he wears a grade school shorts and sando, but now I was surprised that he greeted me and he still remembers me, and oh boy! Im getting old already and everyone around me grows up fast.

Its cool to see him follow his parents footsteps and might soon be one of the handler of the animation industry in our country, I joked on him yesterday about the old days that I hanged out in her parents studio, Art Farm Asia. I told him too that Im arranging a animation festy for next year and also invited them for a special exhibition of their work. I heard that they are making another big animation project. and he said that it will be completed on June 2007. Wow! I wanna see that first before it hits another award.
