Went to a photo shooting event last weekend, themed “School Girls, Malaysian Style”. Organized by a couple of freelance photographers which are my Uni’s students too.
Unlike my past events such as PC Fair show girl shooting or Cosplayer shooting, this is probably my very first planned model shooting event. The main difference between two is, the photographer has more control over the situation in planned model shooting. When you shoot at an open event, you don’t expect you could have full control over the surrounding elements especially the crowds.
Anyway, thanks to Lobak Yong for inviting and I appreciate that the organizer accepted my participation, and as expected, out of all photographers, I’m the only one who’s not equipped with a D-SLR. Which means, all of the photos are taken with my Lumi-chan (LX3).
Even though the topic is about middle school girls, but the shooting actually took place at my Uni because we couldn’t borrow the planned venue which is a local middle school.
Thanks to Alicia and Elaine being our models of the day.
Thanks to Daniel for organizing the event.
Behind the scenes.
Million thanks to all the photographers who attended the event, the three hour session was awesome. It was fun to know people with common interest. Chatting about photography gears & techniques while group shooting is the best of all. Oh, not to mention how lovely our models are. =D
I learnt a lot from the event. Something that I never think of before… Something that I never dared to do before… Skills and techniques. This makes me think of further pushing my photography skills by entering the world of D-SLR.
Do you shoot?
