Lepak Corner September 2010 – DIY Still-life and Close-ups with the Experts

Digital SLR Photography readers had an exciting time honing their skill at our second DIY session.

Aver Awards through its subsidiary outlet, aperture N shutter, had successfully co-organised another 2-day DIY shooting Tips session with Digital SLR Photography Malaysia. This time, the informal event, also known as “Lepak Corner” session was held in Aver Awards’ Ground Floor outlet at e@Curve (formally known as Cineleisure Mall). Participation in the DIY sessions was open to any interested readers of our magazine as well as customers of the outlet. Various Nissin Speedlites for Canon, Nikon and Sony DSLR Cameras were sponsored by Schmidt Marketing during the 2-day event. Table-top softboxes, Lastolite reflectors and Lens Baby were provided by Shriro Malaysia SDN BHD. Also available were Carl Zeiss Makro Planar T* lenses in 50mm and 100mm focal lengths. Among the local experts that provided the DIY tips were Schmidt Marketing’s Ng Chi Loon and Digital SLR photography Malaysia’s Geoffery Loh and Aver Awards’ Gavin Lim. As a bonus to the participants they were also shown how to use Nissin Speedlites for wireless flash photography during a live model shoot at the later part of the session.
