This was my first experience to attend this kind of event. I don't how it goes but I just simply go with the flow.
I arrived there at around 2:30pm to take pictures of the float as well as the performers. It was really hot that time so my first realization was to wear protective clothing like hats and sleeves to cover me from the sun. I was able to experiment with some settings on my camera to create a perfect picture.
I was able to meet my friend Alex and borrowed some of his lens. Some of my pictures improved though I need more practice. My second realization would be to save enough money for me to upgrade my lens to better ones. My kit lens were fine but I really need an upgrade soon.
To my demise, I lost my camera's eye piece and I really need that for me to use my camera properly. I had no choice but to buy a new one. Third realization: be very careful.
I was able to take pictures of the event as it progress. The day was really tiring but I enjoyed every minute of it even though I have to go home and miss the program at the CCP Complex. I hope I could go back next year with better pictures.
