Since a few Pentax bros are interested in simple product/close-up photography, I'd decide to hold a sharing workshop/gathering on the 12th of Jul. Only 6 slots, as I dun wan too many ppl. Will only go through the basics with multiple flash sets. Most likely will hold a basic sharing workshop on P-TTL strobist after my AF-540FGZ came back from Jap:bsmilie:

Everything to be confirmed, but this is the likely to be the details.

Theme: Basic Products and Close-up
Date: 12th Jul 08 (Sat) If this date I can't hold it'll be on a Sat of Jul
Venue: In Balestier
Time: 1pm to 3pm max.
Program: Go thru basic setup, basic photography and basic PP
6 slots:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

Edit: Conditions:
1. Only kit lenses allowed (DA 18-55mm and F/FA 28-80mm), if no kit lens then use Sigma 17-70mm or DA 16-40mm. I'm serious about this point, I'll invite anyone who bring other lenses out.
2. Only for Pentax user.
3.

U sure u need the basics?;) U can use my kit if u feel u need to join:)

Edit: Using the kit lens to standardise for easy sharing, also since it's product/close-up, 1:3 and 1:4 is sufficient. Also this sharing workshop it's more of digital photography can do than promoting LBA^_~

No Tamron 17-50mm f2.8. Trust me, if u can make shots from the kit get commercial value shots, u can use any lens to get similar or even much better shots. This is something I picked up from night86mare photography^^

It's also cool to learn who has an eye for photography and how with a bit of PP, one can improved their shots. It's like everyone will be using kit, so it's really more about digital photography. If I could I'll love everyone to use the same body & same lens, but it's impossible^^;

Gee. Thanks.. :) I need lar...
Not a lot of experience with flashes.
Have to check with wife though...
See if she can find her own program on that day. :p
Can can. I also need confirm with mine to make sure I can 100% set it as 12th:bsmilie:

My impression of ur photography is that u got experience with strobists action. Not at beginner lvl that's for sure. If you really wanna learn fashion photography, you should ask Zenten for pointers;)

Edit: Anyone wanna bring Gundam to be model? lol

LOL.... You've gotta agree the Sigma1770 gots a more comprehensive range than the kit...
+ it does macro (to some extend) too... :D

I've got a couple of model kits I could bring along...
Though the best painted on is a Gundam Leopard which is a little hard to pose becos of its heavy armory... :p
