Photography Workshop Part 1

On 9th September, 2007, SPAS and sponsor,Canon organised a photography workshop for students, lecturers and teachers to introduce the world of photography to them. And since its free, I join in the crowd.

The venue, MBKS Auditorium, and from past experience, I brought my jacket as its freezing in there. Time was from 8am till 5.30pm but I woke up 1.3 hour past my alarm and it was 7.45am. Showered and my friends sms me asking where was I.

8.10am, while I was on my way, I sms my cousin who was going and she said she left for breakfast as it has yet to start. Uni friends was around waiting.

Reached at the place at 8.20am as traffic was nearly nil, parked and went in and was surprise it was not really filled. Waited around till nearly 9am and the speaker said we have to wait for big potatoes(I change the word) to come.

Fast-forward 30 mins later, the workshop started.

Pictures! GO!

1st Speaker, Mr.Harry Tan. Funny guy. Learn lots from him.
2nd Speaker, Mr.CH Loh who flew in from KL. The pictures tells you the rest. Photoshooting with Datuks and members of SPAS

After learning something from the workshop. Knowledge put to the test.
More jump. 3 person, 1 epic fail.
Fly~ Love the back shadow and shot itself.
One is dancing, one is landing... Love this too. Funny.

Overall, superb experience and learn a little more.

Downside, I can clearly say nearly 60% of the people there do not know whats ISO, ASA, shutter speed, aperture, white balance especially when pros like those speakers says, "200 ASA, 1/250, 1.8"

Clearly this was a SLR workshop as they do not even mention anything about PNS/compact cameras.

Just drooling over the 5D's picture quality and not to mention seeing so many modern external hotshoe flash nowadays.

Atzi, I have been into photography but no scanner, can't scan films. Beside, waiting to get a dSLR soon. My PNS has failed me already but still, that the only cam I have.
