Covered “Canada Philippine Fashion Week presents Gala Premiere: Philippine Fashion’s Biggest Night” which was held at Roy Thomson Hall. The show featured the Philippines’ and Canada’s most iconic designers John Ablaza, Francis Libiran, Noel Crisostomo, Roland Alzate, Leonard Co, Brian Maristela and Norman Noriega. Also included in the show were 14 top Philippine fashion designers in Pistahan De Couture. It was a great show with some fantastic designs! I was able to place myself pretty much anywhere in the venue (except for the seats of course) but found it difficult to find the best spot. It was not your typical runway show and the models walked across the large stage as opposed to towards the audience. Also, there were at least three models on stage at the same time (none of whom stopped at the same spots nor faced in the same direction when posing) which made it challenging to shoot. The lighting was also a bit of a challenge since it changed constantly. When you look at my photos you’ll think I shot in auto white balance but I didn’t and that was the lighting at this venue. All good though and I got some great images.

Tech note: This was the first time I used a 300mm 2.8. Not mine, I wish. As it was it was a loaner from NPS. Super fast focus and extremely sharp at f2.8. Love this lens! Settings for the night were ISO 1600 f2.8 1/160 to 1/500 custom WB.

Thanks to Charise and Canada Philippine Fashion Week.
