    I should say it is optional to bring one MF carmea for the course. Of course it would be better if you will bring your own camera as sooner or later you will need to be familiarise with your own camera.

    Let me learn basic shooting first... Then go into mdium format.

    Just to check. Is this SLCC related to SICC (Singapore Island Country Club)?

    Is Stanley a photoguru?? Very good?? If yes then must quickly learn basic then can sign up for course.

    By the way, I nowadays use D100. Never really took any course. But I guess I learnt the hard and expensive way...

    So easy...
    Shoot and see...
    Can delete if not happy...

    No. We are not related to SICC. I have to emphasize that Stanley is not a photoguru. He is just a photographer like you and me, he loves photography, he likes to share his knowledge with others. So never say he is a photoguru.

    Hope to see you soon, not only you but eveybody. Welcome everybody to our Stanley Lim Colour Centre.

    Thanks for the clarification. I guess after all these years, I am still learning the finer points of photography. It is an art form and like any art form, it has no end. Leave you with a quote:

    "One man's meat is another man's poison".

    Hope to learn more from all you kind people out there.

    Yes, need not wonder too much. You want to print huge prints.....Medium Formats will let you do it. Will you have any problem printing a 30 x 40 inch photo? NOPE.......and it's able to maintain the sharpness, brightness and contrast.

    Many of us may have a set of Medium Format cameras but look at the results that you are getting....is it justifiable? Imagine if you own a Mamiya 645 for example....how many good shots can you get?

    A roll of 120mm film will run about 14-15 frames (sometimes 16) and which is quite costly if you do not get the right exposures and compositions. So instead of wasting your effort, time and money in the beginning, why not learn how to expose and compose first before really venturing into the world of photography in the larger form.

    As Toto38 have mentioned, if you do not own a Medium Format camera they will loan you one absolutely free when you attend the course. On top of attending the course you are given time to shoot some models as well. Plus if you miss a class or two, they will be more than happy to replace one for you according to your hectic schedule.

    Actually when you learn photography, doesn't matter if it's Medium Format or Black n White or Still Life.......the most important is you are enjoying it. We try our best to cater to all the students need and as well try to rectify any problem they face.

    Photography is all about practical skills and we can't really give you an answer when we look at a photo on the net. The best is always observing how you shoot, compose and direct a shot. You will be able to learn instanly on the spot when we personnaly observed the mistakes that you make. You will get instant feedback rather than going by yourself to shoot and post on the net asking whether this is a good shot.

    Sure I do give some comments every now and then but to me it's limited. Some images have been post process, some have crop and even some have change their original photo colours. Learning and getting the right tips on the spot is always fun and a big probability that you learn not only your mistakes but learn how to use your equipment more efficiently.

    So hope to really see more participants to join the up and coming course.

    Anyway, thanks again for those who have sign up and inquire about the course.
