    aiyoh... you put it that way sounds quite mercenary on my part

    no la... Not trying to take advantage of people here.
    As I said, the main reason is for a get-together (most of us know each other through previous outings) over a meal, and a chance to photograph food with some fancy gear, which is probably not possible if out with your friends/relatives.

    I do have a personal agenda with regards to this outing, which I have PM to those who are on the attendance list. Thankfully nobody has pulled out yet!

    Anyone bringing Canon flashes? Or 3rd pary? Please list down.

    2 empty slots!
    With the amount of gear being brought along, I think whoever fills up the remaining 2 slots just need to bring their camera and minimal gear
    but no total newbies hor? Got no time to answer questions like "why you set the flash like this?"... hehehehehe

    bro don't mind editing your post so that the list is not within the "quote" tags?
    Otherwise the list becomes lost should anyone quote your post.

    My friend will be bringing a couple of flashes. Not quite sure what flashes my friend is bringing but one should be a canon and sunpak.

    Should i get a mahjong paper for that porcelain white background?

    If it's convenient for you to bring!
    I have those placemats made from wooden sticks, which may or may not be suitable depending on colour of dish.

    Default Please keep your threads clean

    Please Note:

    Some threads are getting very messy with OT despite the guidelines being clearly stated, and a gentle request/reminder stickied 3 days ago.

    4) if you want to have some space to post organisation details (e.g meeting times, places etc...) you may do so in your specific threads. however, rule (1) still applies; please close it off after the event is over. all other OTs or discussion not related to the specific outing, please do it in kopitiam or in PM/emails. any OTs will be summarily deleted.

    Bro ZCA/DD123,

    Seriously i doubt light tent will be of any use in food photography.
    They tend to make lighting very flat and uniform. Although we should try to use the natural light as much as possible, dont think is likely due to the unforeseeable lighting conditions around the foodstall. Another more expensive alternative is Strobes. But Continous light dont seem too ideal as heat alone will effect the food at an alarming rate, the use of hot light might limit the time we have to take snaps of them.

    Guess we boh pian have to use all our flashguns~!

    I will bring along my lightstand + softbox as main source of lighting instead of light tent.
    (Bro DD123, u bring the light tent, its ok, i provide another viable option to improve our lighting setup..heee )

    Think some more compact mini-lightstands with shoot through umbrellas, white foam board, Relector for flash to bounce back on etc will be more ideal.

    What matter most is we need to try to diffuse Instanteous flash light burst the more we could. Shiny spots (hot spots) on the food itself will render the end product unflattering. we will need a more natural appearance, as if it seems like no flash employed. Tough eh? Me still new in this field, thus need to experiment. haa..

    But look forward to the good food~!!

    Btw Bro ZCA how tall is the ceiling in the stall area? And what color? Bouncing our flashguns off those walls/ceiling give u a larger light source and more soothing diffused efffect as well..

    hehehehe I also think light tent is overkill! Was intrigued to see how it could be employed in such a situation though, hence I kept quiet...

    Ceiling is about standard height... I guess 2.3m or thereabouts. A bit beige -- off-white colour.
    Aiyoh... stress my memory... I never really took notice of the roof!

    I agree. Light tent is better for product shoot. Not good for food. Ok, then I might as well don't bring it la. Waste of resources also. Diffused off camera flash is still the best.
