Last Sunday, I once again assisted George Yong of Jofanna Bridal with Radzie to conduct a workshop for avid and budding photographers. This time the workshop is called "Are You Ready, A Photographer's Workshop" and it covers all the basics of using a DSLR camera, basic techniques in executing a shot as well as some advanced techniques in lighting, posing a model and manual exposures. There were 15 participants altogether and all were treated to a whole day of fun and precious info that could help them to be better photographers. As a bonus treat, they get to apply the lessons they've learned on FIVE models during the practical session. Everybody learned a whole lot about photography, laughed, joked and did some awesome photography with the lovely models. Yup... good times...
Since Christmas is coming soon (Yay!!) Jofanna Bridal is decorated with Christmas-y decos. I took sometime to practice some detail shots while
lazing having my break. And there is this awesome looking wedding dress on display with a very classic design. Love it!!
I know this is not Christmas-y but they have a whole bunch of these cats on the desk
Learning lighting techniques.

Yup... we were strobe mad... the SB900 unit got over-heated.. LOL!!
And we are done for the day!!
I'll be posting some shots of the models that I've managed to sneak a shoot. It's not easy trying shoot while holding a monopod attached with a flash unit. I actually had to shoot a lot of this photos with one hand. Luckily, I was only using a 50mm lens with my camera so it was light and easy to handle even with only one hand... LOL! So stay tuned for the images of the models in my next posting.
