Feedback from the first organised studio shoot:
Most of the work was done by Stereobox in making the shoot possible. In addition, Stereobox's boss generousity in lending us his lights and the studio owner's generousity in providing us the studio space helped to minimise our costs greatly. I am not sure if these generousities are just one time affair or they are willing to lend them to us continously. This is not going to be easy for Stereobox as he is going to be always the one who has to be reponsible for these equipments and stuff and this is not going to be fair to him also. Hence, if we really want to group together for another session, we have to make sure we really have the time to do our fair share of work and be prepared that it is never going to be free.
The second concern is time factor. Though there are only 6 of us that day with two setups, shooting for almost 4 hours, I believe we still have not achieved the satisfaction of producing the one best shot we want. Hence, this would be perhaps the minimum standard we have to set for future shoot. We have to keep our group smaller unless we can afford to do many setups at the same time. 2 to one setup would be ideal for 4 hours. In addition, there is no way to accomodate everybody's time if the group is too big.
This is just my own personal feedback. Interested parties for the next round may want to take this into consideration. Most importantly, ask yourself if you have the time and budget first.
mmmm actually if you guys remember we take more than 4 hours to take that shoot. And even on that day i know me n stereobox ( maybe because we share camera? lol... ) havent take one set of sushi... the one wif a lot of sushi T_T
on a very special note here, i would like to thank on behalf of the NPA group - my boss, Peter Chua, and the studio owner, Tong - for making the shoot a reality. without their help, the costs would be prohibitively high (relatively speaking).
would like to also express thanks for all participating members for their contributions. i hope everybody came away with something meaningful!
ok..any ideas/suggestions for our next project?
Congrads too..... Keep up the good job.Originally Posted by hanqiang1011
Yes, i got to agree with Yezrah. Stereobox did the most in order to make this shoot possible and of course, tks to his boss and the studio owner for their kind generousity. If there's gonna be a next shoot, need to keep the grp small. If not, more ppl, less shoot. Well angel, we didn't share camera, yet we also didn't shoot your set which you did with stereobox.
Issit because after he shoot i messed around wif the set? lols lols lolsOriginally Posted by seng44

anyway *cough* someonehavingbirthdaynextweek *cough*
Well let me know if you guys require a place and lights to shoot. If I'm free to join in we can work something out that can save costs in studio rental :P I don't have a dedicated shooting table though :P

thanks vince for offering your help once again~ hope we have a 2nd project soon!
personally my observation from the first project are, the participants-to-subject ratio is slightly improportionate. its good everyone is patient and take turns shooting, but ideally, i'm sure everyone would like to have more time to compose the shot?
also, for the food shoot, we are doing all the food styling ourselves. personally, i find it 'distracting' to style the food, compose the shoot, light the subject and look at it critically, all at the same time. plus the fact i'm not trained in food styling, hence it took a longer time to make the food look 'right' and 'decorating' it.
so for our next project (depending on the subject), i hope we are able to have 'specialists' like food stylists, fashion stylists, art directors on board to colloborate rather than have just one point of view (the photographer's)..we can learn from the experience and expertise of other specialists?
ok next time i join as random passerby can? =p
complain sooo much... you buy me can?Originally Posted by seng44
this thread is kena spam-ed
recently, local talk about copyright protection for photographic rights has been getting louder and louder...
would like to ask the relevant authority on the subject here..
let's say, when you shoot a PR event, or a wedding day, do you usually give up all rights to the clients right? maybe in the case of the PR shoot, you charge an additional 'loading fee' for publication of the pictures, etc.
in the case of wedding day photography..does the photographer give up all rights n originals/negatives to the clients? or will it be a common practice to hold on to the rights and originals? i understand that is quite a standard practice in the US for wedding day photography, and for bridal portrait photography in Singapore.
Hi,Originally Posted by Stereobox
I think regarding this copyright issue should be discussed with the couple before hand. Like I usually tell them I might use their photos for some advertising work, usually they are quite agreeable after seeing the final product work.....
eh hanqiang, we should meet up la..i also stay woodlands.
repeat after me.. woodlands rocks!
ok,im spamming my own thread
