Marhaba from Abu Dhabi!


Marhaba (that's Hello in Arabic) to everyone especially to the sisterhood! Miss Iggy has finally landed in the sandpit. During her first weekend, she attended a photography workshop. It was an interesting day since she learned a lot of basic techniques from the maestro, Jay Alonzo. He's one of the leading photography workshop instructors from the Philippines, who has been teaching for 14 years now. It's interesting to shoot when there's no auto controls and post-processing in your mind:






And who would have thought that on her first photography workshop, Miss Iggy will be commended for this snapshot-turned-into-artshot? :)

Next week, it'll be about food photography!

Shoukran, Sandy Iggy for giving us a first glimpse of Abu Dhabi!

I'm curious as to how you got those men to pose for portraits!

Fortuitous Faery, afwan (that's arabic for "you're welcome")! Those guys were staring at me when I was taking shots of the nearby buildings. Then I shamelessly asked them to pose for me. I'm glad that they didn't refuse me. :)

Eds, thanks! Yes, I took her to the photo workshop.

Lauren, I'm glad that you liked the photos. :)
