Tagbanua Mother and Child

Tagbanua Mother and Child

FEBRUARY 8, 2013 — While in search for something to shoot with my camera near a school in Berong in the town of Quezon in southern Palawan, I came upon a woman who was carrying a little baby girl using a sarong on her shoulder.

She’s a 27 years old Tagbanua mother, who just came from the Tabuan (community market) looking for food to buy. Obviously tired from carrying her daughter, I can’t help but admire how she still managed to smile.

For this photo, my processing involved Adobe Lightroom, Photomatix and Nik Color Effex — a plug in I have on my Adobe Photoshop Cs5. After several tries on what preset to use, I’m glad I came out with this.
