T-Shirt Design for AMP Mindanao Convention

AMP tshirt design

THE FIRST Mindanao Convention of the Alliance Men Philippines is being held here in Alabel, Sarangani Province starting today, June 2, 2011 until June 4.

I was asked to design a shirt for the convention, whose theme is, “Alliance Men for a Better Mindanao.

I crafted a statement, which signifies the commitment of the participant to contribute to the betterment of Mindanao. (That’s very timely for my post in my personal blog.)

The t-shirt says, “I commit myself (to God and to AMP) for a better Mindanao“.

I used my old photo of the Munato Monument and modified its colors to suit the tshirt design.

We used athletic fabric paints for the shirts on 120 mesh.

A New Beginning for Digital Detours

I have always been interested in photography even before I had access to resources. Oddly, I didn’t have the resources.

I first got hold of a camera when I was grade four. A group of visitors in our school asked me to take a picture of them. I was told to simply depress the button on top of the camera after peering through the whole. Common sense told me that what I see through the viewfinder would be what the output would look like.

Maybe I just learn very quickly that after that experience, I had always been asked to take pictures–in family, school, and church activities. And I loved it.

I have wanted to join the photojournalism competition in high school but the slot was alwyas given to those who have their cameras, I didn’t have mine so I just settled on writing contests, in which I never won.

In college, I had plenty of opportunities to take pictures  when I became a staff of the school publication. In some instances, I, myself took the pictures that accompanied my articles.

After graduation, I worked as a research and publication assistant in the univesity. most of my tasks involved covering events. It was my first time to get hold of a bit sophisticated digital camera. That experience strengthened my desire to learn the craft. So I read a lot about photography. I observe the styles of known photojournalists in the country. And of course, I practice whenever I get the chance.

Keeping this blog has helped me a lot in improving my craft. Starting this year, I will be sharing with you the new things I learn and other information related to photography, digital imaging, news and media, gadgets, as well as insights on fields related to these.
