Countdown 2011-7th place.

7th place-'Untitled', I just like this :p

Nikon D700, 60mm f2.8 lens.

This photo shot through small windows in 1 of the resort at Cameron Highlands, I like the reflection of the 3 table lamps + a wall light that reflected on the glass, lighting falls perfectly on her, the most challenging part is to position her at the right spot without lines falling on her face :)

Tomorrow (1/1/11) will be Suet May & Patrick's wedding, let's relax, celebrate & enjoy tomorrow, cheers!

Ivory & Edmund Wedding Portraiture @ Koh Samui

Here are my favorite.

Sunset cruising...

My biggest challenge in this assignment-under water photography, cause I'm not a good swimmer :p

This is the 'masterpiece' display at the ballroom entrance, saw a guy saying that "this is 'photoshop', the photographer add in the bottom part", that's really broke my heart :( cause I'm not a 'photoshop fans' who like to do multiple layer & I always challenge myself in every assignment with 'in-camera effect'. This photo taken with 1 single click & protected with under water casing.

Going under water ...

The whole session end 1am & is pretty cold at that time.

Light Painting.

Thanks to Ivory & Edmund, we really enjoy @ Koh Samui.
Also thanks to my beautiful stylist cum assistant, Evon Tan & make up artist Eddie Kwang.

On day 2 - talks by local great speakers (total of 20 speakers/4 platform), I also purchased a t-shirt titled 'WTF' from Fiona Lim. The highlight will be the photos competition judged by Jerry Ghionis, Lito Sy, Charlie Lim & Kris Wong, is an open judging, so everyone get to know what is the comments on every photos by the judges, follow by a dinner together with VIP guest + committee.
On day 3 - talks by 5 speakers (included me), Jim Liaw, Lito Sy, Charlie Lim & Jerry Ghionis, it was a big challenge for me to speak back to back with all this experience speakers.
During my talk, titled 'Conceptual Portraiture with Leica', I share my ideas, experience & concept that I've been created with Leica S2 + M8 previously. At the end of my talk, when I show a picture of my son & daughter that related to my topic- 'Connection', all a sudden, I feel so emotional because I miss them, it been almost 2 weeks I have never spend time with them, we use to go swimming/gym alternate day at the condo, Japanese food/steamboat/fast food on Friday & shopping on Sunday.
End of the day, we have closing night that organized by Leica at Delicious, Marc Resident (Thanks to Schmidt Marketing), cool ambient, nice food & beers, the best part was all 'competitors' gel together for 'yam seng' & take photos, it was the most wonderful moment I felt.
On day 4 - Jerry Ghionis masterclass @ The Professional Gallery Solaris Mont Kiara, we have 2 classes, 1st one is about live shoot, Jerry's experience & 2nd class is about business & posing, both are wonderful.
I wish everyone who attend this conference will benefit from here & hope to see you again.
