This is the start of Lens Talk series featuring Photographers and their noticeable amazing captures.
For its initial offering, Lens Talk features the works of Wowie Pascual. I first came across with his works through the Facebook group page Pinoy Photography Organization and from there I became a fan of his photography.
Sir Wowie was a Fine Arts graduate of Polytechnic University of the Philippines. He said he likes capturing people’s moments and great landscapes. He was an OFW for 12 years working as an Interior Designer for the Ministry of Defense in Kuwait. And currently he’s back in the country for good, doing Freelance Photography.
He learned photography a lot during his stay in Kuwait as a hobby to counter homesickness. He joined different photography organizations like Pindot Pinoy Photographers and Digital Photographer Philippines. He dreamed to excel in the field like his teacher Manny Librodo and his idol in paintography Maricris Fabi Carlos.
Asked What’s the best thing about photography, his responses were:
“The best thing about photography dito ko mailalabas ang mga nararamdaman ng taong o subject ng nakukunan ng lente ko. Sabi nga ni Dino Lara, it’s not how good you take picture but how good you feel about the pictures you take.
Although this adventure has just begun for me, my photography has taken to levels I would never have dreamed. Not only does the PAINTOGRAPHY process overcome many of the current limits of technology and equipment, it has opened up a new plateau of discovery where vision and persona can magically transform into a new dimension of time, light, and color.
My background is in Fine Arts and Design. As a Game designer, I tend to look at the world in both a digital and artistic way. People consume art as a form of escapism, and its proven that people tend to enjoy escaping into somewhat stylized environment because it allows them to overlay their own emotional context and make it more personal.”
“IM NOT JUST A PHOTOGRAPHER, I AM AN ARTIST TOO”
Below are his works; Be amazed, Be captured and listen to what his lens has to say. Enjoy.
