“Amorsoloesque is a learning technique,” says Kris, “the only limit is your imagination.”  This is a million dollar answer of Ms. Maricris Fabi-Carlos.

Why should i like her and what’s her capavility?

Only one answer i can tell she’s very unique and a very strong woman as i’ve ever seen, a down to earth person.

 At first, am hesitating to ask some questions on my work doing amorsoloesque but then she come to me and ask what i need to do and even i ask her so many times to come on my place to ask for more i don’t feel any problem with that and i like the way she teach.

Here’s some summary of her Basic Information

Her passion for the art started when her father introduced her to sketching and oil painting when she was younger. In 2007, she took basic and advanced photography courses at the FPPF( Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation), finishing at the top of her class. In the same year, she went on to win Photo of the Year 2008 with her “Raindrops” entry in the PhotoWorld Cup Network, a tough competition of the best photographers among the Philippines’ camera clubs. More awards affirmed her artistic talent: she was two-time Imahe Club’s Photographer of the Year in 2008-2009. In 2009, she ranked 5th as Photographer of the Year in PhotoWorld Cup; shooting up to 3rd in 2010.She is also a speaker in Photo World Asia 2011. Lately she won in the international Photo Competition held in South Korea. She beat more than 500 entries from Japan, Korea, Philippines, China, USA and Canada to win the 2011 Asia-Pacific District Photographic Competition of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA).

She loves portraiture and landscapes, enjoying and portraying them with available light. After her photographer-husband Jon Carlos taught her Photoshop, Maricris got hooked on photo editing and doing layouts for weddings, and shortly thereafter her passion to create surreal images started.

Amorsoloesque is inspired by National Artist Fernando Amorsolo, who art depicts Filipino Culture and way of life amid the back lighted scenic Philippine scapes.

Maricris is now doing photography workshops. Lately, she conducted a highly successful “Amorsoloesque” workshop in Singapore, It was attended by Singaporeans, Indonesians, Malaysians, Indians, Vietnamese as well as Filipino expats.
It was a great success as every single attendee learned the Amorsoloesque tips and Techniques.
The participants output were astounding, It piqued everyone’s dormant creative mind.And as what Amorsoloesque is all about..It is a learning opportunity.

“Amorsoloesque is a learning technique,” says Kris, “the only limit is your imagination.”
