Tivoli Garden Residences | January 4, 2018
With its superb location at the heart of Metro Manila, DMCI Homes’ Tivoli Garden Residences easily tops the list of favorite shooting spots of cityscape photographers.
Nikon Philippines brand influencer Cris Magsino, for one, considers the Iris tower in the 2.7-hectare community in Barangay Hulo, Mandaluyong City as the top condominium building in Metro Manila which offers the most amazing view of the cityscape.
The DMCI Homes’ resort-inspired community’s excellent location and proximity to key cities with views of picturesque lines of high-rise buildings, gives a good vantage point to get a good composition, Magsino shares in an interview.
“As a landscape and cityscape photographer, having a good vantage point is a key element to get a good composition. Tivoli Garden Residences provides several spots that offer interesting compositions for a cityscape photograph,” he points out.
Led by Magsino, Nikon Philippines in partnership with DMCI Homes, recently led a free cityscape photography workshop dubbed as “Urbanscapes” at the roof-deck of the Iris Tower of the five-tower development.
Landscape photography enthusiasts were taught proper camera handling and basic post-production techniques during the seminar.
“The deck of Tivoli Garden Residences provides a spectacular unobstructed view of the metro that allows you to marvel at the city skyline spanning several cities from Makati, Mandaluyong, Pasig, and as far as Pasay as well as enjoy both the beauty of sunrise and sunset panorama,” Magsino notes.
“Based on places that I have been to, Tivoli Garden Residences tops my list. Next would be The Grove, City Garden Hotel, Vista Shaw, Avant,” Magsino says of the five condominium buildings which offer the most picturesque views of Metro Manila’s cityscape.
Located near the Makati-Mandaluyong Bridge, Tivoli Garden Residences offers a serene retreat amidst the bustling metropolis. It is the first property to feature DMCI Homes’ proprietary Lumiventt technology which is an architectural innovation that allows natural lighting and airflow to permeate the building through Sky Patios and breezeways.
A multi-awarded photographer, Magsino has been shooting commercially since 2006 but only started doing serious landscape and cityscape photography in 2013 as a way to escape the pressures of commercial photography.
“Landscape photography gave me a relaxing way of doing both things I love and enjoy which are travel and photography. It is one of the genre wherein you get to enjoy nature or the city view in a relaxed pace,” he relates.
"It combines the joy of travel and photography at the same time. It suits people who love the adventure of immersing one’s self into different places, its culture and its people,” Magsino explains.
Aspiring photographers, he notes, should have tons of patience to be able to capture stunning landscape photos.
“The key to be a good landscape photographer is to have a lot of patience. Patience to look for the perfect spot. Patience to wait for the perfect light. And patience to learn and develop your skills both on camera handling and post production,” the veteran photographer says.
photography, you are at the mercy of nature in terms of light, weather and
other uncontrollable conditions. Landscape photographers learn how to react,
adjust and improvise to make the most of what nature provides,” he concludes.
