Inst. Jaime Misalucha of the Institute of Communication (IComm) conducted a seminar in basic photography as part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ (CLAS) Lectura, a lecture series “by the faculty for the faculty,” on Jan. 13. This marked the first Lectura seminar for the second semester of AY 2011 – 2012.
Misalucha started his lecture by showing select photographs from his portfolio, which includes a variety of portraits, action shots, and artistic compositions. He then explained several theories of photography, as well as pointers on selecting the right camera for each individual depending on price and specifications. Misalucha concluded his lecture with tips on avoiding common mistakes in picture composition.
“It was fun because I got a chance to see a few of my former professors and meet new ones. It was a different experience and the pressure was greater owing to the fact that I will be speaking in front of professionals. It feels good to be back home, the Colegio,” Misalucha said.
“The speaker spoke both from his in-depth experience in photography and from his wide array of knowledge. The contents were clear, concise, and very informative. The speaker captured the attention of the audience from start to finish. The audience showed a certain amount of enthusiasm before, during, and after the lecture. This was clearly manifested in their eagerness to apply the theories they’ve learned in actual photography,” said CLAS Faculty Club president Asst. Prof. Jerry Imbong,.
Misalucha currently teaches Basic Photography to second year IComm students. Outside the academe, he works as Booker and Business Development Officer for Ad Management Team, Co. He is a 2003 AB Communication Arts graduate of the Colegio.
