After going to the Taman Tasik Perdana for the photoshoot. I went to 1Utama Shoppping Centre for lunch, with Raymond. While waiting for him I happen to stumble upon the Tamiya Asia Cup 2008.

I was walking along and I saw a lot of people sitting at long tables with a lot of electonics on the table. The first thing that came to my mind was, factory producing something or a competition of some kind. Walking closer I saw that they were all working on RC vehicles. Interesting, I figured it was some kind of demostration, walking further down, I saw the track and I realised that it was a competition.

The above images shows the work area of all the participants. What was amaizing was the teams came from all over ASIA. Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, and a few other countries.

Spent about 2 hours there and then went for a movie and went back home (hotel) to rest for another long day the next day.

More photos from the event can be found at the gallery.

Right, so two weeks later I'm blogging about what happened two weeks ago.

So in the morning of 6th Sept 2008, I woke up bright and early to meet up with d3vilsim.Then we headed to Taman Tasik Perdana. It was really a big group of photographers at the event organized by QiQi. Thanks to her, I had my first experience with paid models. The creativity amongst the photographers there were amazing, of course some results didn't turn out as expected but still you have to give them props for trying.

We arrived slightly late than the appointed time cos yours truely was late at arriving at the meeting point. As we got out of the car, we see people clicking away already, so without much waiting around we also started clicking. 

Shirley

Out of the 4 gals there that day, I took her(Shirley) picture most. As she was attentive to all photographers. One of the easiest to shoot. I probably have out of hundred percent maybe fifty percent was of her.

Cammy

Cammy was really cute gal, but during that time I was finding it hard to get good exposure of her. I would not dail in the correct settings. So either the flash was too strong, or too low, or the metering was wrong. When I got the results I wanted I was already shooting the other gals. I have to do better.

Velva

Velva, she has beautiful eyes, and very accomodating. Didn't shoot much of her in her 1st dress, more on the 2nd. As 1st round there were too many photographers. I could not squeeze in. If you dont believe the amount of photographers there, check out the group hug at the end of this post.

Chantelle

But amongst the four, I shot her the least, as she was really popular and I had no chance! haha, out of 400 images captured that day, I had less than 30 of hers and of that even less is acceptable. Sigh, must do better! No excuses!

Over all it was a fun experience for me. First time in a foreign place. If got opportunity, have to join more of this outings. Definitely helps to see and experience what the others do to get good shots.

The gal in orange is QiQi, the organizer.
