This is the second time Joey and I attended a photography seminar together. Besides learning the basics of photography, I see it more of an opportunity for us to build a memory for ourselves. I would definitely be happy to hear from Joey when she grows up in future and fondly remembers such times we had.
This event was organized by Gardens by the Bay – Educational Programmes, comprises of 2 parts – theory and practical. The instructor for the 1-hr course is Andrew Tan who has more than 35 years of photography experiences. Seeing how he patiently handles the queries of the kids, I can be sure he is good photographer with exceptional patience when waiting for his subject in shooting.
Andrew taught about focal length, ISO, aperture, shutter speed, lighting, composition, etc. After an hour’s lesson, it was time for the kids and accompanying adults to try out the theory in practice. We were all given 5 subjects to shoot – supertree, flowers, non-living thing, nature patterns and family photo.
Here are Joey’s selections:
I think Joey has a similar liking for portraits. And she is quite good too. FYI, we learnt the difference between portraits and candid shots. Portraits are when we asked the person for permission to take their photos and candid shots are just without obtaining permission.
This is definitely a portrait shot by Joey of the student volunteers.
