you guys know that im so into pictures, the very reason why we have followers
the first thing people like about PHS is the set of pictures, pero i admit
i only grab them do some minor changes put it in a layout and everything is history.
that's why i have a lot of respect to real photographers, as i wanna be one
yet at this very moment "wannabe" one parin. well sabi nga nila hindi porke
may hawak kang DSLR eh Photographer ka na, lately i've been seeing photographs of Local
artist in a nice way, the presentation, the concept, the composition
only a photographer knows how to deliver.
so today i feature a real photographer.
check this interview below:
PHS: gano kana katagal in this photography scene? and who inspires you
Arlo Angeles DM: 5 years na. At first because of skateboard videos lang e, then na inspire ako sa mga landscape and cityscape ni Aaron Brown of Korean Photography Public Group then kay Jill Greenberg’s Portrait Photography. Now, I think I am following Joe L’s career sa photograph works ko.

PHS: why did you make local rap artist as a subject?
Arlo Angeles DM: We don’t really intend to photograph much of them so I think its just faith or something. Or maybe because of Mr. Romarico Superable a.k.a. Crazymix and Lordivino Ignacio a.k.a. Basilyo who became our friends lately. Sila yung mga taong nagpahubog sa amin sa Hip-hop industry and until now we’re still learning.
PHS: have you been a big fan of local rap scene?
Arlo Angeles DM: Yup, Francis M. and Crazy as Pinoy when I was in mid grade.
PHS: eto interest ko lang, how you contact them(artist) or your subject?
what do you think drives them, or is there anyone na tinanong mo pero hindi pumayag?
Arlo Angeles DM: Through cellular phone and web. I don’t really think about how will I persuade them. I just do contact, then inform those details and if their interested then they will reply again and again. Just simple.
PHS: what do you call your style (in photography)
Arlo Angeles DM: My style, even me I want to ask my self about that subject. I don’t
really know.But I’m trying to have a signature photograph that I think and hope soon as you look at
that photo, you will knew that I am the one who took that image. I called it
“Arlo’s Disintegration Effect”. Sana matupad po, hehe!!

PHS: na medyo corny is there any tip you can give to any aspiring photographers out there.
