From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia,

Event photography is the practice of photographing guests and occurrences at any Event or occasion where one may hire a photographer for. This is a coverage that is used around the world at occasions such as weddings, christenings, naming ceremonies, parties, birthdays, formals, dances, ceremonies, award ceremonies, funerals, meals and engagements.

I have covered several events using my Nikon D7000 camera and speedlight. Mostly I rely on my studio lights for lighting when covering long events like debut & reunions so that I won’t worry about battery. Usually I cover events for 3-7 hours so power could really be a problem with chargeable batteries.

The photo was an event in lent called ‘SINAKULO‘ where people walk in the street half naked, with a cover on their faces, a thorn crown on their heads, a whip like equipment on their hand used to hit their backs that causes their back to bleed.

Sinakulo is a Filipino custom. It’s an act of repenting. They believe that their sins against God will be forgiven if they do this act.
