Update on Classes

Dear members,

There will be no class this week, due to Friday being a public holiday. Classes will be commencing next week, the details of which will be announced soon.

Thank you for your patience.

A guide to composition

Want to know how to compose better pictures? Here's a few tips:

1. Rule of thirds
Imagine dividing your image into a grid comprising of nine squares. The idea of rule of thirds is to place the focal point (eg: a person, a flower) of your image at any point where the lines of the squares intersect. Doing so would make your picture look more dynamic/interesting as opposed to placing the focal point at the center. (this may be familiar to architecture students)

Rule of thirds can also be used in placing horizons (for landscapes). You may choose to place the sky at the upper 1/3 if the scenery is more interesting - conversely, if the sky is more interesting, you can include more of the sky and place the scenery (land) at the bottom 1/3 of the picture.



2. Lead-in lines
Lead-in lines in a picture will guide the viewer's eyes into the scene. Ideally, the focal point should be placed along these lines, creating a sense of suspension. (eg: building at the end of a road) Lead-in lines can comprise of anything: fences, rivers, roads and so on. It is suggested that lead-in lines be placed diagonally.


3. Foreground interest
The basic idea of foreground interest is to place a nearby object to emphasize depth and perspective when you plan to shoot distant sceneries (eg: sunset on the sea). A foreground can comprise of any object: rocks, branches, leaves, so on. A high f-stop number is recommended (SLRs: F/13-F/20, Compacts: Landscape mode or anything with increased sharpness), along with a wide focal length (lower than 30mm). 

 

Most importantly, do remember that this is only a guide, NOT rules that you should follow rigorously. How you plan to compose your picture is entirely up to your creativity.

I- Pioneer photography team

Dear TPC members and non members, 

Taylors is lauching I-PIONEER campaign, 

I-PIONEER , is a 3 months campaign launched by Student Development Hub (SDH)  aiming to encourage students to create new active clubs and also promoting existing club to create more events. This has come into our interests as every club is required to submit photos of their events to SDH.

That is the background story, 

The main point here is that SDH is looking for photographers from TPC for these 3 months time to cover ALL of the events in regards of this I-PIONEER campaign. (again it is first come first serve basis)

Regarding about payment, Taylors does not have budget for photographer, however. I believe that you are aware that this is a great opportunity for practice and get a taste of event covering tasks.

However, I am sorry to tell you that we have to limit these opportunities to DSLR users, 
This is due to DSLR is an pre-requisite to cover events, and also covering events do require a certain mastery of basic photography.

So whoever is interested in covering events, please do take initiative and contact Boon 017-554 7576 or our Event Management Team director, Rusydie 013-209 5475
OR you can email to Taylorsphotographyclub@gmail.com if you have any questions or doubt.

But on the condition that the club remain active ..... very active.
1) attend the classes (physically, morale support doesn't help )
2) participate in trips ( should be in Ampang lookout point if i can get subsidy)
3) reply my mails / sms
I cant think of others for now,

Again , I need you all to help me before I can do more,

I really want to make this club to be the best club, but I only could do it if all of you is passionate.

BOD Lunch meeting details,

Dear BOD's ,
The detail for lunch meeting is as follows :

Time : 12 to 1
Location : Padi Garden at B4 , PJ CAMPUS,  (if you were in lakeside and still wanted to be BOD's , sms me)
Purpose of meeting : I leveraging the burden of TPC to all of you. So be mentally prepared for my assignments.

Whoever felt he/she is capable and wanted to contribute to TPC, Please come,
I would like to work with people that are passionate and people who are willing to take initiatives.


NOTE: If you wanted to be an event photographer, I advised you not to be a BOD, as you will be bombarded with a lot of events in the near future, and make sure you have SLR at hand.
I already get offered by organization other than Taylor to cover events, those are the demanding clients,

Compact users, dont worry , there will be classes , and outdoor trips (most likely for landscape) for you guys,
I still working on it. Since TPC got sufficient BOD to make the club running.

Lunch meeting for BOD




As title says , I would like to meet you all , 
And I understand that everyone of you is busy , 
But I hope to gather all of you for a small talk,
This week is the time we organize ourself and leverage responsibility already,  

For those who see this post and wanted to be BOD , please do so, 
The thing I expect the most from my BOD is the ability to take initiatives,

The location will be at PJ campus , B4 Ground Floor,  PADI GARDEN 

NOTE : BOD meeting will be same place same location from this week onwards until we move to Lakeside.

First of all, the two main thing I put into consideration when I selecting BOD is 
1) the ability to take initiative, (most important)
2) synchronize time slot with me, Thursday and Friday after 12 ( I need to have my BOD members have same free time with me as this will allow things to run smoothly. I am really sorry for this, but it is for the sake of club efficiency. I hope you can understand ) 


and I avoiding to take final sem / final sem for BOD as I understand all of you are busy. 


About the difficulties for Lakeside to come to PJ campus, I hope you understand for now. However I got rumours that We are moving in APRIL, I hope that I could get to use the LT there for our classes


PS : Class will commence NEXT WEEK. , which is anytime between 22 to 26 march. location and time not confirmed.

Open day Event

I update the post as soon I got the information.  Just when I thought I can get a moment of serenity in my assignments.


Ok, Taylors is going to have open day event , the details is as follows :

Date : 20 AND 21 March
Time : Full day , I haven't confirm the details, but be prepared for 8 am to 6 pm.
Venue : TLC
Payment : RM 80 in total. Which means RM 40 per day. ( I promised I wont make you guys to be  free labour)
Attire : Please wear Taylor Tshirt if you were to go that event.

Jobs : most likely you will taking candid / family shots.

Taylors require 4 photographers.

Fortunate for you, BRENDAN LEE  has confirmed with me that he will be covering that events.
And I need 1 more slot for photographer owning a DLSR. ( if you do not have experience, I will teach you some basic concepts and do and donts for covering events, but I do hope you have the basics,)
So there are 2 empty slots for beginners to learn from the pros. So please grab this opportunity if you interested in venturing into event  photography.

Note : Make sure you have at least a compact (with spare batteries and spare memory card), but don't worry about it as you go to the event to learn. The DLSR-nians is the one who does the job for your part.


Mail taylorsphotographyclub@gmail.com if you interested ,
or sms boon 017- 5547576 . (rmb to state your name and your intention in covering the event)
I couldn't make it as I got assignments dropping on me.

I NEED ANSWERS BEFORE MONDAY. or else, TPC mostly like have to reject the invitation and hence and opportunity lost for TPC publicity.

AND double check your schedule before confirming with me. I definitely do not want to make empty promises to Student development ( they are the one who responsible for giving us event to cover) .

Thank You

Hello to every new and old, young and old , TPC members. This is a thank you post for everyone who appeared in the meeting today. I really really appreciate your presence. Again, sorry if I can't remember your name, but by now I should be able to recognize you if I see you on the street.

First of all, I would like to express my gratitude for showing up in this Friday meeting,
The numbers appeared more than I expected, It is a good start for TPC too.

And thanks again for those who come to Friday meeting even though they went to Wednesday session. I hope the pictures in the slides entertains you.

For the newcomers , thank you for coming too, I hope that I did talk to everyone of you and brief a little bit about club history and some tips on taking photos. If I din't , please forgive my lack of attention. I promise I will attempt to do some "ber-bonding" with you. ^^

And lastly , to all the girls, I would like to share some little flaw of mine. You may have the impression that I'm an  outgoing/extrovert  guy. However, there is an exception situation where I will lost all my ability to think/speak/act properly. That situation when I have 1 on 1 conversation with girls.
Yup, so if you were in 1 on 1 , face to face situation with me, please don't think that I don't want to talk to you or being uneasy , because I am too shy to actually talk to you.



And Picture of the day is by John Loke.
