Introducing Seigfred Canete. Seigfred’s advice to those looking to begin in photographer: “Start photography with film, it helps you discipline your work.”.
“When I got my first roll, I was excited to go out and shoot randomly on the streets so I travelled our province, south of Cebu. I started photography last year, when my uncle gave me this rangefinder film camera. I didn’t know how to use it because it was old and I thought it wasn’t working anymore. He taught me the basics of how to use it so I ran to the nearest mall to buy some expired film rolls. I shoot any places that are interesting to me, and I was amazed at the results when I got my first roll developed and scanned. I bought a digital camera this year and I fell in love with street photography.”.
