Some of you may be wondering.....you're currently using a Canon 40D, why join a Nikon fler's course. Wanna be a two headed snake isit??
The answer is simple. Canon do not have any courses available in Kuantan, and for that matter.....not in the whole East Coast region. Why?? Go ask those Canon flers. Not enough supporters? We East Coast flers not good enough for them to spend time 2 days guiding and teaching us to use your product...which is way more expensive than Nikon's btw. Any other reasons including these two to me are simply unacceptable. Having spent a huge sum of my hard earned salaries on my DSLR + lens + bag + other nifty jingles (which cost me a hefty 10 grand ok), I would expect Canon to be more pro-active. I am sure that there are many Canon DSLR users that would want a course or two in our region besides Klang Valley, Penang, Melaka and Johor.
Having said that, I had no choice but to join other Nikon buddies for the weekend in Duta Sands Resort, Kuantan. The course extensively covers everthing about Nikon product. The sifus ie Andrew and Sean from Nikonian Academy (both are academy directors btw) taught the how to, what to, which to, when to use different settings for different occasions. Of course, the common terms used such as ISO (pronounced as "eye-so"), aperture, shutter speed, bokeh, composition, and framing were used, so I didn't feel like a green-liquid-spongy-thingy from outer space.
We spent 2 days covering the aspects from Beginners to Intermediate and Flash Photography. And all I can say is......IT WAS BLARDY FUN!! I had such a marvellous time hanging around with other enthusiasts, learning and sharing with them the joys of snapping just about everything under the sun. And to top the icing, we were presented with two ahem! delicious models to shoot with.
This is Jeslyn.......(she's much like the Jap GT babe!! *salivates*)
and this is Angeline (at 1st glance, I thought she was a Malay. She's actually of Chinese-Indian heritage, which explains her beautiful facial bone structure *drools*)
and here are some of my favourite shots taken during the course...enjoy!!
and last but not least check out my flickr for more shots of these two beautiful ladies :)
