“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.”

The philippines is known to have some beautiful beaches and white sands in the whole world – In the past two years ago April 2009,  me and my outdoor friends decided to visit this small town of Sibale Island located in Romblon in a visaya’s part of Philippines.

Coconut TreesBefore we reach the other island we pass by all this young cococnut palm trees and it was a simply amaze.

White Sands – this is my friend (kitty) i took this photo including her as a subject of my photography.

Proper Town – This is the main proper of Sibale, Romblon most of the locals are living in this place (called bayan) you will feel thier  hospitality as nature of a filipino’s.

 Transportation – yes it is from bayan to island it takes 5 minutes to ride on this motor boat were so lucky that time because this boat is belongs to the mayor of Sibale.

Breath Taking AfternoonLast but not least .. this place a theraphy for me from the birds singing while your taking rest and the winds it will whispers on your ears all of this is appreciatte what God‘s creations in our world.

For more details about Sibale Island check out this link  enjoy exploring.

And i keep continuing exploring myself to any beaches.

Mt. Jebel Hafeet Al Ain, One Foggy Afternoon

We had another ” foggy day” last week  in Al Ain City.

Jebel Hafeet is a mountain primarily in the United Arab Emirates in the city of Al Ain is one of  the seven Emirates.The mountain is actually stradllers part of the border of OMAN.Jebel Hafeet is also known as a tourist attractions they have a natural cave winds through Jebel Hafeet.

The road scales the mountains and ends at the parking lot with only a hotel and a palace belonging to the country rulers. Jabel HAfeet is also a challenge for the cyclist who frequently come over to train and international riderstake part of the 8% average ascent of the mountains.

And were still on the road and it’s hard for my husband to drive because of the zero visibility on the road.But we keep on moving but slowly until finally we reach our destinations on the top of the Jebel Hafeet.

My daughter (maryam) and she’s only 1 year old and 4 months she enjoyed the coldness of this foggy thing and for me i cannot tolerate thiscoldness comes from nowhere … but i enjoyed a lot because in my country (Philippines) we don’t have this crazy freezing fog.
