Last Friday, 15th May, Malaysian Dreamgirls (MDG) Season 2 Finale was held at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara..
Never thought of going coz it would be crowded and all, as it is open to public..
Then Sarah told me she can get some VIP passes, so I accepted her offer and went there to practice my shooting skill..
All photos are shot under Manual mode, without flash, all based on settings on shutter speed, aperture, and ISO..
Photos are original as it is, no post-processing, only resizing and watermark..Oh, just 2 or 3 photos are cropped for better composition..
I was standing about 10 feet away from the front most of the stage..So I just chose few photos from the 100 photos that I’ve taken..
*Nice and sharp*
These 2 photos are cropped before I put them together..Even if it’s not cropped the pics still look fine, just that I want to focus on the object more..
*The 3 finalists, Pinky, Dawn, and Juanita*
This is my favourite pic of the night..No photoshop at all, only resizing and watermark..Thanks to the flashes flashed by the media photographers..
*L>R – Pinky, Dawn, Juanita*
The real pic is a bit too small, I mean the object, in this case, the models..So I’ve cropped the pic so the object is more concentrated..
I know, the composition is a bit off..I prefer the original one..
Read on for more pics and result..
*The judges and hosts*
This was the moment where other smaller titles such as “The Most Funny Moment” and “Miss So and So” were given out..
I’ve got problem shooting these 3 girls that night..Very difficult to control the settings as the lighting condition in that area is slightly dimmer than the stage..
The pics of Vernice and her cousin, I’ve used ISO1600..LOL~!! Coz if I didn’t, the shutter speed would be damn low and it’s not good for my shaky hands..
*The moment of suspense*
Well, not quite suspend for me though..
First, I’ve stopped following the reality show at episode-6..Second, Ming is not in the Top 3..Third, the catwalks and performances were a bit boring..
*Announcing the winner, Juanita*
As most people would have known by now, 2nd runner-up goes to Dawn, 1st runner-up Pinky, and the winner is Juanita..
She won the competition by 20,000 margin votes..Imagine that..It’s a no-fight competition..
She won herself some cash prizes and also a Chevrolet..
Met Racheal Tan for the first time ever, so yeah, camwhoring a must wtf..
After the event Sarah, Nicholas and I adjourned to yamcha session at TTDI, beside Shalome Bar..
We had a bit of brainstorming session about lots of things..Life, relationships, works, religions, etc etc..
*Sarah and Nicholas*
Sarah take good photos too and has very strong interest in taking black and white photos..I especially like this one..
*The emo me*
We sat there for like, about 4 hours chit chatting around..LOL~!!!
It’s been quite a while since my last brainstorming yamcha session..
Til then, have a great week ahead..
