The day started early. After a cup of coffee, I traveled via motorcycle to the village of Sulangon where I took a small outrigger. We followed the tributary of Dapitan river to the village of Diwaan.
I used a tripod, which I placed on the prow of the boat. It was only later that I realized that every time the boat moves with the river’s gentle waves, my video shoots also moved up and down.
I also had a hard time focusing the 7D because of my eyesight and because of the movement of the boat. Some shots are out of focus. Good that I took still shots using my 60D.
Back in the home base around noon, I went to interview Bert Laput, a local journalist who wrote stories about the Subanens (Suban-on) in the past.
I went to Dipolog in the afternoon to take photographs and video of street scenes.
End of the second day.
On Monday, I will be going up to a mine site up in the mountain.
