Event Photography

Have you ever been into big event such us concerts or political events where by chance you’ve got you’re best dslr buddy onboard? Isn’t it nice and great to take photos during the event? It’s a great opportunity for every amateur and photography enthusiast especially to those who are aspiring on taking event photography seriously.

If you are not an official photographer in the event, you have to understand that crowd control is very common especially in big events. This is to maintain the peace and order during the event. So expect that you will not have a full access to the media corner so you have limited chances of getting the best picture. Media corner is usually separated from the general audience by a stanchion or a velvet rope or sometimes a barricades. In this case, it is best to have a telephoto lens with at least an aperture of 3 or for sharper picture go for 2.8 or 1.4 aperture. Telephoto lens will fill in the distance limit that you have during the event. However, it is best to understand first the capability of your telephoto lens before the actual shoot. Familiarise with all the function as well as your body so that you won’t mess up during the event and you don’t have to regret about it.

Good luck and Happy shooting guys!

The Veil: my first, my version

Months after attending Manny Librodo’s talk in Kuala Lumpur, finally I was able to generate something from what I have learned in that short inspirational talk.

This was an unplanned shoot. I was at my inlaws house when I saw that veil and thought of my husband niece andrene, will justify what I have in mind. And so, inspired by manny lib and the veil, from the balcony where there’s an adequate natural light, I took this shot. The shoot did not only satisfy me but have opened to a new discovery. I was really surprised when this little girl who is only five years old can clearly follow my instruction and knows how to project in front of camera. Making myself eager to shoot more of her. Hopefully.
