Here is the highlight of Fashion Week 2009 at the Spring, hands down. They featured a lingerie fashion show here in the Spring, Kuching. Everyone was excited for sure, especially the shutterbugs.
I’ve selected few to be posted in this entry, and as usual, I will post the rest in my facebook account. I must say, I find it hard to stop myself from firing at freely at this occassion. I almost went into full-time rambography mode.
Just like the previous shows, I opted for Av mode to shoot in this occasion, while maintaining AI Servo as the AF mode. However, I only found out my mistake for this shoot was to tone down the exposure metering to -0.7ev. The outcome came up mostly too underexposed to my liking. I should have checked the shots from time to time before getting carried firing away. My bad!
The environment lighting isn’t consistent as the main light source came from the sunlight outdoor. And that, is the unique design of the Spring shopping mall, which I believe helped in conserving the energy usage. I’m no engineer or architect, I’m saying that based on my own assumption and observation only. I might be wrong.
The other setback was my batteries for my speedlite. The power drained off pretty fast with the rate I was firing. So, occasionally, the flash didn’t fire due to the slower recycle time, when the battery was weak.
As much as I wanna complain, I’d still wish to congratulate the team who made this fashion week possible. It has been a wonderful 3-days-camp for me, personally. I enjoyed shooting. Kudos to everyone behind the show, and to the models too. Let’s just hope for more of this kind of fashion show in town in time to come.
I managed to capture some interesting frames in between the show, which I will post on a later date. Now, as usual, the rest of the photos will go to my Facebook, for the time being. Until I get Flickr pro account, I may need to get myself an alternative image host soon.
With this, I have wrapped up the fashion shows at the Spring, Kuching.
