Renowned travel photographer Elia Locardi leads first Fujifilm landscape photoshoot at DMCI Homes' Sheridan Towers
DMCI Homes' Sheridan Towers partnered recently with Fujifilm Philippines for a special landscape photography workshop led by world-renowned travel photographer and Fujifilm Global Ambassador Elia Locardi.
Dubbed as Cityscape Live Shoot, the workshop is Fujifilm's first landscape photoshoot held last October 8 at the roof deck of Sheridan Towers, a picture-perfect venue for the workshop as it offers mesmerizing view of its surroundings.
Conveniently located in a strategic spot in Pasig City, the roof deck of the 41-level DMCI Homes property provides captivating landscapes of BGC, Ortigas, Makati City skyline as well as the awe-inspiring sight of the Laguna Lake, Mount Banahaw, Mount Makiling and Pasig River. Sheridan Towers also offers a splendid view of sunrise and sunset.
The event started with a short talk and valuable tips from Locardi, who expressed appreciation to Sheridan Towers, most especially on the roof deck amenity, saying, "This rooftop is made for people. It was made to enjoy the view."
Coming to Manila for the first time, Locardi, known for travelling places in search for the best shot of the area, observes that a lot of rooftops or decks are not particularly made for people to view the area surrounding it. He also admired the building's engineering, offering a 360-degree view, complete with seating areas that are meant for residents to actually enjoy the sight
"There isn't really much attention given to creating a space where people can enjoy. A lot of rooftops in cities are just made to hold signs, billboards, or different things like that. It (Sheridan Towers' roof deck) has an adequate railing, there's not any glass in the way, so it's an unobstructed view," the American travel photographer said before some 30 workshop participants including hobbyists, enthusiasts and professional photographers.
The weather was initially a challenge, but once the Live Shoot commenced, the sunset offered a perfect blue hour shot, much to the delight of both participants and ambassadors. With the view offered by Sheridan Towers, photos from the workshop came out splendid.
