Step 1: Talk to different people

These are the people whose stories may shed light on issues and challenges that the everyday Filipino faces.
Record your interview.
Make sure to list down important details to get to know your subject better: their name, age, areas, and profession.
Step 2: Take photos
Capture the story of the everyday Filipino using your camera or phone.
Take a horizontal photo of your subject in a well-lit environment or in a place that says something about your interviewee’s lifestyle. Take note: your subjects don’t need to smile or look at the camera.
