Hannah Tan Private Session for Album Launch at Mardi Gras (1-Utama) with Vince Chong

So last week a couple of friends and I headed off to the new club at 1-Utama (Mardi Gras) to check out a private live session from our local star Hannah Tan commemorating her new album launch apparently.

The place was pretty packed, and we got there a bit late, but thankfully I managed to sneak to the front and get some shots in. I started out with a wide lens (17-50mm f/2.8) but it was too wide and not fast enough even open all the way at f/2.8.

So I switched to my 50mm f/1.4 which gave me enough light at f/1.8 and was about the right focal length!

She had back-up dancers, vocalists and a full band (with Alda on bass), it was pretty cool!

This guy was rapping too.


The lights were tough for photography, changing every second or so to a completely different colour…sometimes the same picture would have 2-3 colour casts. It surely made for interesting ambiance though.

I chose to use the available light rather than blasting it all away with high powered flashwork.

Vince Chong was there too – he can really sing!

    This comment is late, I know… but that 50mm f/1.4 sure looks good. I’m stuck with the 50mm f/1.8 which does not auto-focus with the D40… shouldn’t have listened to ken rockwell. lol. cheers mate!

    Eng Jee: The 50mm f/1.4 won’t autofocus with the D40 either! D80 price has come down a lot though 😀 50mm f/1.8 is a good lens too.

    Yep, I’m considering a 2nd hand D80 🙂 hehe
