This is so nice.... I can help if needed.
This is so nice.... I can help if needed.
Thank you so much for coming forward and offering your kindness, help and generosity in one way or another.
The last remaining logistic issue I mentioned awhile back was about the location.
This morning, I went down to recce a pet-store/grooming salon that has an adequete space/area to do a mobile studio with at least a two-light and reflector set-up. The only down-side is the location is a bit more towards one end of the island than being centralised. This may or may not affect donors' participation.
So, it looks like we're all set.
EXCEPT, I need to look for a table that's at least 4 feet x 4 feet, or two slightly smaller tables.
Now all we have to do is hope that the number of donors are sufficient to make next weekend a go-ahead. If the numbers are too little, we'll either consolidate it one ONE day only, or have no choice but to push it to the following weekend, which we hope won't be the case.
ONE GREAT WAY you all can help is to help spread the word round, both about Charmaine's plight as well as the Doggie Charity Photoshoot.
Below are the messages I've been providing for convenience. Please feel free to use whatever intro you feel is best.
HELP SAVE OUR FIESTY PRINCESS CHARMAINE LIM
Do drop by her blog and websites and offer help in anyway you can. Imagine if less than a quarter of Singapore donated just ONE DOLLAR each, Charmaine's chances of living may be increased from 20% to 40-50%
Every little bit helps.

I can help in photography.
Equipments, I have 3 speedlights, softbox and umbrella. Capable of producing "nice studio effect". We can do full side portraiture as well.
Let me know if you need my help.
was wondering if anybody wanna sacrifice their 16mm fisheye to shoot big headed dogs/cats/watever 2,4,6,8,10 legged animals that is there...
Logging Off. "You have 2,631 messages stored, of a total 400 allowed." don't PM me.
Acutally my 17-40 has a b+w.. its been a damn good investment cause all the nose/paw prints and slaliva cleans off very easily haha. Canon fisheye cannot put protective filter one =p
uSE dca'S RINGLIGHT FOR HI-FASHION LOOK ftw! Place ringflash over snout with 4mm feesheye for ultimate effect!
Tech-wise, I need the lights to be moderately soft but slightly directional with fill from the other side.
I hesitate to use the hair light only because of possible space constraints behind and the the side of the backdrop, but we could try and see.
Lunas, do you have a gridded snoot or plain snoot and flags?

I have DIY gridded snoot.
See how on the day during set-up and testing. If got space, can use. If no space, bypass the hairlight.
Wuld love to 4mmfishyeye their snouts with your ringflash though!
I'll be in contact with volunteers by Monday to make the necessary arrangements, but if anything in the meantime, please feel free to PM me.
Once again, thanks for all your support and emcouragement, on behalf of Charmaine and her team and me.
A Note of Thanks from Charmaine's Team:
I cant thank you enough for all the efforts provided.
Currently, Charmaine and Cynthia are in the hospital but each and every fund raising activities, Cyn appreciate from the bottom of her heart.
There have been requests to meet up with both, but I would have to gently decline it at this point. Charmaine cant be out in crowded areas, nor under the Sun.
Special thanks to:
- Pooh Bear for initiating this thread and create the first footprint here.
- DM for arranging this shoot and liaising with the people involved
- Ortega, and the moderators to pull this through
An URL link has also been put up. (My Note: This refers to the Doggie Charity Shoot Details which I have already posted up. I can't post the link without clearance.)
Thank U so much.
I would personally add my thanks to the member on the dog forum who is helping me in the organisation and logistics as well as the Owner and Admin of the dog forum for gracious permission to carry out this initiative in their forum, and also for agreeing to the unenviable task of being Treasurer for this.
Let's not OT here too much. The rest of the world has a link to this thread!
