A while back I went to some ‘Photo Contest’ at Bed in Asian Heritage row down in KL – I don’t go to KL often….so I had to drag myself down there.
But I was supporting Kim – so it was ok 😀 I briefly posted about it just after the event, but with the server crash and some other stuff I’ve been a bit hectic since then.
We were there to take some pictures of the Star Celeb contestants in a clubbing environment, challenging for both us and the contestants.
There was 3 sections basically – Pose, Groove and Chill being a fixed pose on the stage then 30 seconds of emcee time, then dancing inside the club, then hanging out respectively.
It was pretty tough with odd lighting and extremely low ambient light conditions. Plus it was my first time shooting in a clubbing environment, trying to get the settings right was interesting to say the least.
Kim is very natural on the mic.
The posing section was tough too as they always posed in the wrong place…lit by no lights and moved very fast, didn’t hold pose etc…only a few I could get a clear shot of without blasting them with flash.
Some accidental strobing on Alea for the ‘Pose’ section.
After that was a few group shots before we headed into the club.
Then the dancing started..the ‘Groove’ section.
I really liked the dancing shots..
Took a few posed shots too for the ‘Chill Section’.
Kim and Josiah
The place was pretty packed actually, quite a small venue..
You’ll notice I always put contest in quotes….because it was over 2 months ago, they never announced the winner and the prize money was so paltry in the first place. They should have just invited us to come and take pictures rather than mis-labeling it a contest.
