It’s my first photo event. Seriously speaking, I never thought I would be able to attend such an event. Photography has always been a hobby or an interest that is unreachable for me.Partly because of the cost and expenses following such an interest, partly because I don’t have friends around me who has the same passion.
With the introduction of digital photography, the cost of producing or developing photos were greatly reduced. I can shoot as much as I want and not worry about wasting films. The downside of it is the learning curve is not as steep as before. We tend to take more photos then decide which is better after it. And with all the editing tools available, making a photo looks nicer is so much simpler. So much so, we can never know how good or bad our photography skills are anymore.
With this Canon Photomarathon event, it was the ideal chance to check myself, how much have I learnt and which areas do I need to improve. What’s more? It’s only $10 for such an event, I get a free t-shirt and a free A4 printout as well.
So all the photos you see here & my photo blog are NOT edited. Please give me your most brutal comment. I want to know what can I do better. Of course if you think the photo is good, I don’t reject some encouragements too =)
There were over 2000 participants! OMG! Just look at the people gathered at Suntec Hall 401 on a Saturday morning 9am.
A big clap to Canon who organised the event. Since it was already their 9th year doing it, I have to say I was pretty impressed. How come I have never heard about this event for the past 8 years? They even prepared massage chairs for us! Too bad it’s practically impossible to try it with the sheer number of participants this year.
I’m not a Canon user, but thanks to the Organisers, you can even join the event if you uses only an iphone.
3 Nikon (Me, Andy, Amanda) & 2 Canon (Sue Fang, Geng Hui).
We were given 3 themes for the photomarathon, each theme has 3 hours to complete and upload our best photo before the next theme was to be announced.
Theme 1: EAT
Theme 2: CIRCLE
Theme 3: IMAGINE
