Monday, October 3rd, 2011

First of October was my college photo Sharing day.It was a overwhelming day and it was one of the biggest event in the college packed with lots of people.

This event was organized by my college’s club, photo tribe club.

They invited three professional photographer who is, David Thian, Max Lim and Sher Lim.

This is our conference room before the event start. This conference room can hold up to 10o seats.

This is our registration booth at our college lobby.

The first speaker started with David Thian. I met him during my cousin wedding ceremony, but before that i had went through his website and actually know abit about him. Last couple of weeks, I asked him about lens stuff and we had a short conversation on that day.I was so surprised that he called me when he came in to the conference room m surprisingly his memory was good.

Before knowing him in person, i thought he was just an ordinary photographer. Once he stood at the front, and started to opened his mouth to talk, I has changed my thoughts towards him, He was so humorous that day, and he was good at presenting himself and shared every bit of his life from young till now who become such a well known photographer not only locally but also intentionally.

Just a synopsis about him –  ( I don really remember to arrangement of the timeline )

He was very good in drawing since he was young and his parents opened a coffee shop in his old town and he lead a simple life in his hometown ,Nibong Tebal.Since very young , he actually set his career target to be an comic illustrator and eventually he was very keen with his goal and mission and did not think of any other career which can replace it.Actually he wanted to study The one academy, but due to finacial problem, that did not allow him to study in the one academy. He was good at correcting error photos or photos that people thought to be thrown away, he will makes imperfect photo to become a perfect photo. Later on, he became an art teacher to gain some income to allow him to pursue his education in some college which he did not mention it.

One of the most interesting thing was, as i still can remember, he told us that last time student love to take like teenage life photos either is one person portrait or couple’s portrait is just like what teenage do now like post their photos to Facebook and all, so he actually started to take photos of some student who still in our local high school. Almost the whole form of student find him to take portraiture .

He went to Singapore to work quite a long period of time as a studio photographer.

One of the bridal shop director i had forgotten whether is in Malaysia or Singapore, find him to shoot for their bridal sample portrait, they offered him for 25 thousand for 16 albums.That 16 albums particular album was showcased at a bridal exhibition, many photographer came to visit the exhibition, Many people found that his photos was unique and really has his own style and stands out compare to others.

Later on,he used the 25k to opened his first ever photo studio, and at that time he had change his perspective of life to become a photographer which is never think become a photographer can be successful too.

He also did mention about his team and him is currently researching an apps for iPhone which have lots of different photo effect to let you try out

The last speaker was Max Lim, he shared about videography which is something i crazy about now.He shared quite a number of video and he did share one of his own production of video using just Canon EOS 5D Mark 11, it was super amazing the video, it was so stunning.

Nuffnang Blog Awards Gala Dinner

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Continuous Post – 6.00 p.m.

Remember I rushed back from Vivo City. Yeah! I still have my own sweet time to take a nap. How nice, until some one rang my room phone. Nick picked up and it was my friend asking me whether need to wear coat or not and bla bla ? Luckily I was not the one answering the phone , or not I will screw him up! You are big enough to decide things okay? Perhaps the invitation stated very clearly that the dinner will be held in Pan Pacific Hotel!So, what do u think!

I was not satisfied with my outfit. I was so forgetful . I had forgotten to bring my tie and Belt for my pants. So, It looks not complete to me ! All because of my laziness for not packing earlier. I wore my coat on, styled my hair with hair spray and spray some perfume around my coat to make myself smell nice.

Had a one last shot before going down to the lobby!

I saw two girls with such a beautiful dresses were waiting for the elevators. I was intend to greet them “hi” but was unsure whether there were also from nuffnang! When the elevators opened, I was so surprised and shocked. All Nuffnangers were already waiting at the lobby for the bus.I had attended lots of event for the past year and this was my very first time seeing so many pretty girls and ladies wearing dresses holding their Big SLR camera with flashlight. I was very impressed by the scenario which I had never come across. Everybody is well-dressed and they were busy taking photos. The lobby link hotel was filled by Nuffnang

This is what usually what blogger will do. Look at them , They were busy taking photos!

I was excited when I saw kennysia was standing at the lobby there. Later , I saw Chessie appeared and lastly when I walked towards the bus , I saw Nicolekiss was posing with the expensive car outside the lobby! I am their all time readers.

Not really socializing during our way to Pan Pacific Hotel.

While waiting to go down from the bus, I looked out from the bus window and I saw so manyyyy bloggers were there. Flashlight flashing non- stop ! My heart beat faster and faster. I told myself this time is a really grand event. Walking to the Pan pacific hotel, Two guy wearing suit opened the door for us. Flashlight flash towards my eyes making me looking stars. It was a overwhelming experience walking on the red carpet which is the first time in my life!

It was so packed with all the bloggers. Everybody was talking during the cocktail session. They served pringles with different colours. So many colourful dresses distract my attention. It made me think couples of minutes of the type of their fabric as I am into fashion design nowadays. Everybody is holding big big camera! I have mine too! My Nikon D90. No more Compact camera can be seen!

Photo-ing with the nuffnang banner !

After registering, each of us got a booklet from nuffnang! It was the reddish cover ! I glancing through every pages , I think it was a well-made booklet! I like the design of the book.

ADD ON – Let me give you some introduction about this event. First of all, Nuffnang is an advertising company for blogs. So, Nuffnang had invited 60 of the region’s best bloggers, and 360 bloggers and guests for this 3 Day 2 Night to Singapore. I would like to make it clear that I was only a guest of Nickchan.

8.30 p.m. – Walked in the the grand ball room

It was rather boring staying at home for the whole day when it is a weekend.Dad going for a dinner and mum was in outstation and just left me alone. I received my friend’s text and decided to go to Gurney Plaza for the 徐佳莹 autograph session and again I have to have my dinner myself, nobody at home!

I was late to Gurney Plaza after overslept but I managed to rushed to there in time.This time I park at Marina Bay outside car park and I walked to Gurney Plaza. I not willing to pat for the Plaza car park.So expensive!

Wow. It was so crowded. I was finding a good place to take photos. I couldn’t find a good spot for taking photos just because I was late! I can’t find my friend when I arrived at the mall so I have to stand there alone.

This is 徐佳莹. I don’t really listen to her song. I just know a few of her songs.

It was damn hot. I was sweating like a pig.

After I found my friend, They were excited with my new camera. They were like press here press there. I just remained humble and did not want to show off !XD
