Last September 3 to 6, 3016, the top 6 finalists traveled to Macau, China for the final leg of the AirAsia Travel Photographer 2016 contest. They went through a series of challenges in landscape, portrait and food photography with the guidance of Coaches/Judges Jacob Maentz and Wawi Navarroza. I asked one of the finalists, Neil Cardano about his Macau experience.
1. How's the experience in Macau?
It was an awesome experience. Macau is a place of diverse culture. Whenever in a big city, I love going to streets with crowd and Macau is one perfect place for that. From dim sum curry to big casinos and colonial villages, I love everything I experienced in Macau.
2. What are your top 3 favorite places that you visited? And why?
I love the view atop Macau Tower, it’s one of my favorite. But of all the places we visited, my most favorite is the St. Paul Ruins and Coloane Village, I think they are the places that best describe how locals live everyday specially the Coloane village.
3. What are the best travel photography lessons you've learned?
I’ve been comfortable using smartphone to take pictures whenever I travel. In Macau, I had a chance to borrow a DSLR camera, I learned a lot of the technical side of photography when it comes to the camera I’m using, but more to that, I learned a lot from the whole team, the Airasia Staff, the Judges and my Co-contenders on how to better tell a story thru photographs, I will never ever forget this whole experience.
