This would be part one I guess, seen as though I got less than 10 comments when I use only words it must mean I’m a lousy writer, I better stick to pictures! Hahah.
As I mentioned, I went off to 1-Utama on Saturday afternoon to shoot some catwalk pictures of some lovely young girls holding all the latest cameras. It was a fairly informal contest, you could only enter 1 picture per person, no post processing allowed, you had to print it there on site on one of the provided Canon printers.
The rules were to shoot the girls WITH the cameras, the cam had to be in the shot.
I had a quick triple play and a beer at Chili’s then headed down to shoot the contest.
From a photography point of view I think I did ok, pretty well without flash and shooting with a f/2.8 macro lens with no stabiliser
Compositions could be a little more adventerous, but just need to learn the basics first..
Anyway, enough of that, what you want to see is the GIRLS right?
Well here you go..

Chloe with a new Ixus.
Sharon with my Canon Powershot A710 IS – the compact I want..
The judges were the participants, we all judged each others pictures on 4 criteria out of 10, so a total of 40 for each picture was the max.
Anyway more about that in the next post!
Coming next – The Contest from another perspective and the prizes!
