Ever taken part in a photography competition? Liew Tong Leng has, and has won hundreds of them since he picked up photography in 1992, as a result of being in the company of friends who were photography enthusiasts. Competitions he has won include the Great Eastern 4th Photography Competition (2004), Best of Asian Aerospace Photography Contest (2004), and The Big Shot (2010), a Singapore reality TV programme aired on MediaCorp Ch5.
But more than capturing images to win competitions are the lessons he’s drawn from participating in them. “I started taking part in photography competitions as a challenge for myself, to benchmark my photography skills against others, and to improve as a photographer,” Liew says. “Later, I realised that it’s actually through the process of being part of these competitions that really helped me to be a better photographer, and not the results.”
Liew, who is trained as an engineer, will be sharing how he creates images that are not only technically superior, but also beautiful and artistically-crafted winning shots. Come spend an evening at SAM and hear his approach to increasing the chances of winning a photo competition.
Liew is currently working full-time with the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore as an Airworthiness Manager.
