We had a Halloween photo-shoot with a bunch of bloggers and friends on the 20th of October. It was really a great fun to have people from different backgrounds gathered together and making the photo-shoot a success. I am truly honored to be able to work with every single one of them.
I invited my long time friend JJ Mak, who is a photographer to join along so that I can learn a few techniques from him. I wish I had use his Canon 5D to shoot around, that would have been awesome, haha. It's really great to see how professionals in their field is doing their job. It's great to be surrounded by awesome people!
Su Ying, the professional makeup artist of the day came all the way from Seremban just to makeup 3 of the female bloggers, namely Jess, JQ and Povy. Sher Lynn did her own makeup of Joker, which is very impressive since I stalked her blog
all the time on and off for tutorial. Also thank you Nuffnang for allowing us to use their office for makeups and also photo shoot :D
Anyway, we all agreed that it will be a black and white shoot, classic is sexy. I tried my best but some pictures are best left with colors. I can't resist keeping it that way, so I left a few pictures unedited. It took me quite a long time to finish all my pictures tho it's just very minor edit (actually I only finish like half only), other commitment requires some attention too, plus my lappy can't really work fast enough now =/
It was my first ever photo-shoot and I can say that a lot of things is not my forte at all (specially shooting in the dark at night and using flash) but at the end of the day my purpose is to learn something and I believe I have met that purpose that day.
Here's some of the pictures that I managed to take for my very first Halloween Photo-shoot (ongoing updates). Hopefully more photo shoot to come in the near future! Thank you all again for the opportunity, specially to fellow photographers of the day - Darren, Iris and JJ Mak.
