Shong Lee Photogenic Catwalk Photography Contest – 1-Utama

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..

Christina Ng with a new Sony DV Cam.

The infamous Rose Chin with the Leica D-Lux

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!

    Nice nice pictures 😀 But why submit that one when there’s so many to choose from?

    I don’t need another perspective – just give me that Leica M8 NOW 😉
    For shots without flash and OIS, even no PP, those are very nice IMHO.

    To my untrained eye, picture 1 & 4 looks better than the one you submitted. Why did you pick the one you the picked?

    while the guys grab the Leicas, I’ll pork the girls.

  6. James November 1, 2006 at 11:00 am #

    I think the prices have really been reduced for the Leicas. Now even normal people can own one..

    Ray & iris: Because most of these are cropped and tweaked, that one I submitted was ‘as is’ it was full frame, uncropped and unadjusted. The others look better now..

    Intensecure: Thanks bro 🙂

    James: Well the M8 is around RM19,888 I’d like to be normal and be able to afford that.

    spillers & v0ices: I find Sharon the hottest of them all 😀

    Izuan: Well she and Julie Hoi are about the most famous local girls in the model/car/catwalk scene. Then there’s Bree aswell of course..

    Aiyah… don’t say like that lah. No pics we will also read, even though we don’t comment. 🙂

    If every post I read I put in a comment, you would be taking a restraining order against me. *lol* 😉
