CEBU, Philippines - Photography, as Wikipedia defines it, is the science, art, application and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film.

Last October 1, photography for photography hobbyists was not just about taking pictures. It aimed to contribute to a bigger cause. On that day, photography enthusiasts in Cebu gathered and took part in the ninth Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk (WWPW), the biggest photography social event that was started in 2007 by Scott Kelby, the president of an online educational community for photographers, Photoshop and Lightroom users - called KelbyOne.

WWPW is a social photography event where photographers get together (usually in a downtown area or trendy section of town) to walk around, shoot photos, and have fun with other photographers. After the walk, each participant has the opportunity to submit their best photo into a contest.

During this occasion, participants from different camera clubs and photography enthusiasts from all over the world simultaneously walk around the streets and just capture interesting scenes that they come across.

One of the participating groups was the Lumenars Photography Club, the official host of the annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk in Cebu. The group held the Photo Walk at Bantayan Island, Cebu.

"It was a successful photo walk," said Emmanuel Sawit, president of the Lumenars Phototography Club Cebu and the one who led the Photo Walk. "[It was] a time well spent with fellow photography enthusiasts who we've now [become like] family. This event [was] an opportunity to go out to the unbeaten path and take street photography outside the city, to showcase Cebu's beauty and share it to the international participants of the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk community."

This year's WWPW by the Lumenars Photography Club Cebu was made possible by Ceasar Azanza of Macys Camera Shop and Ryan T. Go of F8 Photo. More information about the group is found at its Facebook Page, Lumenars Photography Club Cebu. (FREEMAN)
