CSP photography workshop

I attended a photography workshop conducted by Sir George Yong from Jofanna Bridal, who also happens to be a member of ClickStartPlay.com.

He was assisted by Radzie and Alvin, both seasoned photogs. Radzie was in charge of herding the Canon users, while Alvin had to babysit the Nikon and miscellaneous camera brand users during the exercises. (Just joking ya :D no whips were involved...)

So, the first part of the workshop was getting the new users up to speed on how a digital camera works. Stuff like ISO, aperture, shutter speed and similar stuff was explained by George (henceforth to be known as Joj because I'm too lazy to type his actual name) in basic layman's terms.

We were also encouraged to ask questions if we didn't understand any of the things that were explained.

There were many ooohs and aaahhh moments when he showed us his work shooting couples getting married. There was also a short practical session to try to drive home the lessons into our thick skulls.

Some shots from his multi-coloured walls:

This wall was supposed to be neutral exposure, where we had to set the metering so that it was at zero.

Then we had to shoot at someone in front of the white wall:

Yeah the topic on the wall says it all :D

Then we had to shoot at a dark wall:

Hear no Evil

Speak no evil

Photobucket
Snort no evil???


Then there was a small break where we tried to finish off more meehoon that was leftover from lunch, and also the sandwiches and cakes.

Therefore we ate.

After the break, the topic got a bit deeper as now we are treading on the philosophy of photography. OK, maybe not THAAAAT deep lah... More stuff like how to communicate with your subjects. How to direct your models and so on.

Here we have some pointers on how to pose a guy:

Then how to pose a girl:

Then we had some live-fire exercises outside along the corridor:

After finishing outside, while Joj was still trying to herd the last of the enthusiastic participants back into the lecture venue, I sneaked a shot of one of Joj's dresses near the window:

Part of Joj's dress? I don't wanna really find out... *swt*

After finishing off the workshop, we all had a group photo session using both Nikon and Canon's wireless flash mumbo-jumbo, plus a lone Nissin thrown into the mix LOL

We were supposed to go do some shooting after the lecture part was done, but since it was raining cats and dogs, almost everyone opted to stay in the shop. Some left when the rain was not too heavy but quite a number stayed and made some cool portrait shots using multiple flash setup.

And there was a shopping cart that thought it was a car and tried to reverse away and got stuck in the middle of the road near CKS:

Actually it was the super strong wind that caused that LOL

All in all it was a fun workshop, hope Joj does another one soon.

Those B&W photos were the result of failed colour pictures LOL.

They look terrible in colour, so terpaksa convert to B&W, plus some softglow to increase the contrast.
