You might remember I went to M-IFW a while ago, I posted one set TIAMO (Sylvia Lim) Presents Jonathan Cheng at M-IFW 2007 and promptly forgot I had stayed for another show after that.
The favourite of photographers, Triumph presents Justin Yap, Jimmy Lin & Ken Wong.
Somehow Triumph shows always tend to be the most heavily popular by photographers, I wonder why that is..perhaps it’s indicative of the quality of their models? Or it’s just something else. Due to that there’s always a lot of heads, lenses and flashes popping into your frame, which makes it even harder.
This show was even harder technically speaking than the previous as the main lights were off and it was pretty dim, I had to bust out the flash for some fill. I tried shooting with the 85mm f/1.8 without flash, but it just wasn’t happening.
I would have loved to catch Carven Ong a couple over the weekend, but I was busy on that day.
They started out with minimal clothing right away – always a good sign 😀
I blame the cropped foot on using a prime lens..
Shooting with the 85mm did give fantastic depth of field though.
The models were definitely a class above what I’ve seen in Malaysia normally.
After that was some stuff from Sloggi, which you couldn’t see as all the models were wearing boxes..no not boxers – BOXES!
Following on was some kinda sporty, casual theme with the lingerie integrated somehow.
There were all kinds of accessories like inflatable rubber ducks, raincoats, balloons and vinyl umbrellas.
Big hats were definitely in too.
The last set was a bit more kinky, black and red, lacy and more dressy.
And that was the end of Triumph at M-IFW 2007, that’s all I shot – maybe I’ll do more next year if I win the lottery and get a 70-200mm f/2.8 VR!
