I received that bad news last week that one of my former basic photography students, Rennell Salumbre, passed away. I went to pay my respects last night during the wake and I listened to those close to him share their thoughts of how they remembered Rennell.
They spoke of his love for the craft of photography, his passion for printing his work and how he shared of himself with other people.
On display were the photography certificates that he had received from the different photography seminars and workshops that he had attended through the years.
I was touched to see that one of the certificates on display was the one for attending my basic photography seminar several years ago.
Renell, you will be missed.
