Thread: Pentax Sharing Session -Session#1 - basic strobing

  1. #1

    Default Pentax Sharing Session -Session#1 - basic strobing

    Trying to rev up the community here, so offering a series of sharing sessions for Pentaxians only.
    As I have chatted with some of the guys, and there are some folks interested in off camera 'studio' type setups, I will start off with this.

    This will be a 2-3 session activity tentatively happening once per month.
    Most likely, the session will cumulate in participants setting up their own strobist 'booth' at one of the cosplay events (as sort of a real hands on of all that has been learned)
    Else, we can close the final session with a model shoot (pool money of course)


    All I ask are the following.
    1. Pls be committed to turn up for all sessions.
    2. Can't be shy; Must post shots from all sessions (thread will be opened for this)
    3. Commitment to participate, hands-on and practice what was picked up
    4. Pls help to be more active in the forums (post photos, talk, help others, even just say a few words of encouragement )


    Session#1 Activity
    ==================
    1. Basics of getting the flash off camera.
    2. Introduction to shoot thru and reflective umbrella
    3. Basic understanding of ambient and flash control
    4. One light setup
    5. Hands on session



    Time : 2Aug (Sat), 1.30pm
    Venue : Seasons Park, Yio Chu Kang Rd

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sourc...72197243,d.dGc

    We will be practicing on each of the participants.
    So come dressed in a role.
    Examples:
    Scream; Guy Fawkes masked man; Cool guy in tux, clown, etc.
    (have fun)

    IMO, this is better for learning and taking time to hands on.
    If we get a model now, everyone will rush to shoot and not learn anything,


    I can only take up to 8ppl in this session (unless someone else can step in to help)
    So please register interest here.



    I will need suggestions of a place where there is air-con or at least cool shade that is big enough and we won't get chase off by security.
    If someone can offer a place, even better.




    BTW, this is not the monthly outing.

    Sorry, my time is very tight.
    I am already stretching myself with the sessions.
    Can't be so selfish always leave my wife to take care of 3 small children at home.
    On the 2Aug, I have some help at home, which is why I have quickly organised this session.
    Thanks for understanding.

    Also, better to learn properly.
    Don't rush thru it.


    There will be more cosplays in the future.

    Can i suggest the venue to be the underpass between esplanade citylink? I think Baracus did a sharing at there before..there is air conditioning and quite centrally located..only thing is that as it is a public place (with pple practising dance or in line skating there), there might be limited place..but on the other hand, the more handsome pentaxians can ask the pple to pose for them :P
