@IGersManila’s #TheColl

Late last year, @IGersManila announced the creation of the collaborators group – #TheColl. This group will take an active part in this year’s projects of @IGersManila. Furthermore, #TheColl is expected to spice up and bring forth new experiences in sharing our visual stories. The IGers below heeded our call, and attended the first ever #TheColl Muster date.


More popularly known for his daily entries to Monster Radio’s The Morning Rush Top 10, Oscar or ODH (@oscardelahopia in IG) is an IT programmer by profession. His IG feed is composed of food, flowers, lights, structures, scenic views and people. Most of the time, some short stories, quotable quotes or song lyrics that matches the visual stories are incorporated in his visual stories. Using apps like  PhotoEffectStudio, Pixlromatic, FotoRus, Camera360, ColorBlast, Snapseed and Phonto, documents his daily adventures with his yearlong project #2013project365.

Jimmy (@jaimejim in IG) is a freelance graphic designer and photographer. He specializes in print design and publications. He shoots ordinary things—street scenes and people he encounters during the day; and adds a grunge treatment to it or some traditional film effect such as lightleaks, lomo or crossprocessing. His favorite apps are hipstamatic (especially the double exposure feature), snapseed, scratchcam, photoforge and picfx.

Iana (@ianaperalta in IG) is an Information Systems Auditor by heart at one of the top 4 auditing firms in the country. But her love for photography remained and grew even more when gifted with a DSLR in December 2008. From then on, photography opened her eyes to appreciate the beauty of things around her – even those small details that one would normally take for granted.  She was able to capture those precious moments when in different places.  Through photography, she became an avid photographer, a hearty food tripper and a zealous traveler.  Iana’s love for photography continues to widen through the use of an android phone as her partner in capturing beautiful subjects.  She uses various editing applications like Snapseed, PicsArt, Pixlr Express and Little Photo and her favorite subject is food.

Fleuricel (@lizlrey) believes that everything starts with a little spark. A small splurge of creativity that may bring a total circuit or cycle of ideas creating Fireworks. With that in mind, instagram became a haven of faith, passion, fun and play. As an Asst. Senior Graphic Artist in a design & large format printing company and a photographer, everyday is an art form. With instagram and her fave editing apps- snapseed & phonto, everyday is honoring God and never-ending sparks at the fingertips.

Cha (@chakulit16 in IG) is a freelance event organizer. Her smartphone comes in handy during out-of-town trips as she takes every opportunity to shoot beautiful beaches and the amazing sky.  She also enjoys capturing  moments of people, especially of kids.  Her IG feed is about what she does and what she cherishes the most— her kids, work,  hobbies and things that makes her happy. In editing her visual stories, Cha uses camera+, photo studio, pixlromatic and simply HDR.

A #JetsetterBanker who holds office at Makati but often stays there. That is how Ivan (@ivanborlongan in IG) introduces himself. You would either see him Luzon today and Visayas tomorrow. He loves to use Snapseed as his base app for editing pictures of anything interesting; mostly coming from his jetsetting adventures. From sleeping cats infront of graffiti walls, to chandeliers of rustic buildings: he is indeed a work-in-progress. He believes that “No high-megapixel device, app, filter or editing will suffice; if you don’t have the eye for angles, color and picture-worthy subject.”

A nurse by profession, Vin or @vinaranas87 in IG, is also a freelance photographer. His IG feed is filled with mostly raw and unedited shots of scenic sunrise and mesmerizing sunsets. While he appreciates unfiltered and untouched photos, he enhances his macro shots by using snapseed in his android and ios devices. Vin shares that “Instagram had really affected my daily routine, taking snapshots where ever I go and and appreciate the beauty of nature. It also helped me meeting new friends who are fond of taking snapshots with their phone.”

Den (@iammoony in IG), is working as an IT Account Specialist and at the same time, Les Mills Body Attach Instructor.  His curiosity on using Instagram eventually made him addicted to posting his signature #BidaBest jumpshots on places he has been into.  Framing moments and freezing time through his digital camera, and eventually his iDevices, he has a collection of beautiful beaches, street shots, natural landscapes and cityscapes. Armed with apps like snapseed, shockmypic, colorvu and photowizard, he amazes his followers  with every #unsentpostcard or #IGontheRoad visual stories that he shares on IG.

Watch out for @IGersManila’s #TheColl and its lined up projects for the year that will surely keep the good vibes rolling.
