my first photography workshop

Posted by Au Lim On Friday, May 09, 2008
last april 26, i attended my first photography workshop ever. i almost didn't go because that was the day hubby and i were having a little spat and were stressed about the situation at the hospital. i was feeling all glum and depressed but forced myself to go. i'm so glad i did.

Sir Ross Capili, a painter and photographer who i admire much, facilitated the OWG Next Models Workshop designed for advanced amateurs. yes i know...i don't belong in that category (amateur, yes...advanced, NOT!) but i was told there would be a little go over in the basics anyway. the session started at 3pm and was to run till 11 pm. the first 3 hours or so was a sit down session, discussing the basics and then moved on to lighting patterns and demos including light metering.

then we had dinner (included with the seminar fees) and after that the models shoot. the group was divided into 2 and each group assigned to 2 separate studios. then, we were introduced to the 3 beautiful models who would pose for us. after the indoor studio session, there was also an outdoor shoot session. i had so much fun, i forgot i was depressed!

the PHP2,500 i paid for that workshop was totally sulit! most of all, i think it helped a lot in kicking my meager photography skills up a notch. here are some of my shots during the session. you may view it here also. none were cropped or photoshopped.

    They were beautiful models and you got some awesome shots. Wow! What a cool workshop to have the chance to attend. I'm not sure how much PHP2,500 is in US dollars but I bet a lot w/what you had the chance to do! LOL
