So my first time shooting catwalk actually, I’ve always considered it but never really tried before. I thought it might be tough as I don’t have a f/2.8 telephoto lens as I’m using the cheapo 70-300mm VR (f/4.5-5.6). I love the lens, but I guess I have to get the 70-200mm f/2.8 VR lens one day – weighs a tonne and costs a bomb *sigh*.
I went to M-IFW 2007 on the opening day in the afternoon to shoot TIAMO (brainchild of Sylvia Lim) Presents Jonathan Cheng, and then Triumph after that.
Designs by Jonathan Cheng and accessories/jewelery by TIAMO.
It was a pretty interesting experience, the lights had a tend to blow the highlights and the background was fairly dark – so getting decent subject separation wasn’t too hard. I couldn’t get a good spot in the middle at the front though as the platform was quite crowded.
The angle I got wasn’t too bad though as it meant I could get the model and the brand in 🙂
It was a very subdued collection, mostly black with a bit of white and grey, heavy black eye makeup and solemn expressions.
The models exiting.
Sylvia Lim – the brains behind TIAMO.
So what do you think?

Congrats on your new 70-200mm lens!
pinkpau: Thanks! I was looking forwards to the Carven Ong show the next day, but I couldn’t make it – he has some great designs.
Mark: Read carefully dude 😛 I’m using 70-300mm VR…only dreaming about 70-200mm 🙂
Well it did mention that you might want to get the lens. So I thought u went ahead and bought it for the event. Haha. Oh well, I am also dreaming about that lens.
Mark: No way man, that’s 6k I definitely don’t have right now. Just a dream…hopefully one day 🙂 Especially if I can actually get paid to shoot stuff like this haha.
Man I hate model faces.
They’re expressionless like…. *giggle* you know…
Dr. Tan: LOL – they were supposed to be like that for this set I think.
no wonder the cloth for 2nd picture look so familiar.. -_-” cause that’s what the Phoebe Huang wearing for Nation Care Charity Show @ Genting…
hahaha… but come to think of it..i think Phoebe’s cloth is sponsor by Jonathan Cheng too…
why 200 mm is better than 300 mm?
Such nice shots. But what’s with the hair? Haha.
Simon Seow: It’s not the focal length that matters it’s the aperture.
Julia: Fashion mah.
