Photoshoot Workshop Invitation By MindChic Club At MBS!

Courtesy of Tian Teck

It was delightful winning experience to be invited by MindChic Club for a Photo Shoot Workshop with Photography Expert William Cho. The venue? The picturesque Marina Bay Sands!

When Richard of MindChic Club contacted me about the above event, informing me that one of the best photography experts in Singapore will be sharing his experience & guiding us personally, I was overjoyed. As William focuses a lot on quality & photographer interaction, the group size was deliberately kept very small.

I was apprehensive about joining initially as I would probably be the only one armed with just a digital camera. Richard is extremely kind & assured me that everyone needs to start from somewhere. Plus, I could bring along a friend too!! I felt much better after hearing that & decided to go ahead with the invite, & I’m glad I did.

But guess what? I was right after all. All the participants were holding DSL cameras including my friend, Tian Teck! Just look at the pix he took. So pro! I was so paiseh (embarrassed) & felt kinda left out. Nevertheless, take a look at the shots taken with my Canon IXUS 300HS, using only manual mode:

What do you think of these pix? Well, I'm pretty happy with them. I've always been using the Auto Night Scene mode to capture pix in the evenings. But William showed me that I could take even better pix on manual mode :) He patiently guided us in setting ISO, Apeture, Speed etc according to the scenes & angles etc. Pretty cool stuff I never thought I could do!

Well, I'm submitting my 3 best shots to MindChic Club for a special contest. Take a look at William's Collection & maybe it can spur your photography interest.

I know nothing about photography, but know a beautiful shot when I see one. Great job with the photos! Night pictures are so hard to take, but you've mastered them with elegance, my friend. Two thumbs and two big toes up. Teehee.
