Yesterday morning, I met up with 2 bubbly and fun loving gals for the first time to have a TFCD(Time For CD) session with them. They basically have not done a photoshoot before and wanted to try one out for the experience. To those who may not know what TFCD means, it works whereby the model poses for the photographer, and the photographer gives the model a copy of a CD/DVD for her time. This is usually the case for models and photographers who want to built a portfolio or have more practice. We went to Chinatown(Yeah, I know, always the same place, but how big is Singapore, haha!), and we started off taking some pictures along Keong Saik Road when we were watched closely by "Curious" Ah-Peks(Old Man), eyes glazed and in a daze as usual, and a friendly elderly British man from one of the budget hotels who tried to strike a conversation with us. Anyway, we moved on a little distance away after awhile, and very unexpectedly, a Caucasion man, from one of the shophouses there invited us to take pictures at his music/pro audio/software production house, "The Gunnery". He shortly introduced himself as Ben and showed us in. What a show of commendable hospitality! We accepted his very generous offer and good will! As I was not prepared for any indoor shoot that day, I did not bring my external flash and shot mostly with my inbuilt camera flash or without flash. We shot at the cosy and stylish lounge, air-conditioned and with a great sound system to play music to set the mood. Without the proper equipment for an indoor shoot, I tried my best to take some pictures with what I had. My apologies if the pics are not up to standard. For those who are wondering more on the technical side, I used a Nikon 35mm F2 for all the pictures posted here. No external flash was available for me at that time. We all had a great time and I thanked Ben for giving us the opportunity to do so. Thats one of the reason why I love my hobby Photography so much. It gives us the opportunity to meet up with new and interesting people and personalities! Thanks to Ben, Samantha and Adelyn once again.
Tuesday, December 4, 2007
Starting in the month of December, up till around 2 months later, busy days are scheduled ahead of me due to work, OT and RT commitments. Photography would have to take a back seat during this exhaustive period. Sometimes a little break could do me good, and I hope I take this opportunity to find inspiration and redefine certain aspects of my photography, and go full steam ahead when I am free of my other duties! Which reminds me... The current year 2007 is coming to a close. How time flies. How the years just go by when we start working. How I must feel when I take a look at my blog(if it still exists then, haha!) a few years or more later, especially in chronological order. Snapshots of time brings back Precious Memories that can Evoke our Emotions. Photography does it all. So that we can embrace Life.
