It's 2012... I have no new year resolution.

who supported me to colleges for my higher education

who gave me money to travel during holiday

who bought me my first handphone

who paid for my silly mistakes

who gave me money to start my own business

who never fail to love me......

Canon EOS Essential Photography Workshop in Miri

It was the first Essential photography workshop to be organized in Miri city by Canon Malaysia.

The workshop has 38 participants and the trainer was Rais Sanusi.

The participants was given theory class in the morning and settings about their EOS camera.

After lunch, all of them headed outside for the practical shooting session, which was on portraiture shooting.

I got 2 beautiful Mirian girls as their model for the session, Candy & Angeline.

The trainer demonstrating creative composition by including reflection.

This was the result, taken by participant named Emeer, who is still a high school student.
his shot got himself one of the best 5 shots, and was given Canon goodies bag later.

a group photo before the practical session ended..

i traveled light during this trip to Miri, did not bring any DSLR and lenses...
So i shot with Powershot A2200 digicam selling only at RM399.

These are my shots after some editing in Photoshop CS2.

I started digital photography with Nikon Coolpix digicam... so shooting with compact again isn't something new. The best thing is i do not need to carry heavy dslr backpack on my shoulder and go through all the custom checking.
