|Amri Ginang Portraits Photo Exhibition @ Black Box MAP Publika|
Seems like I've been neglecting this space for quite some time. So today gonna share bout a photography exhibition that I attended in May. That was my first time seeing Amri Ginang's artwork in physical shape and I gotta say they all looks awesome. I hope I can have a photo exhibition soon in a creative space, or event just a restaurant would makes me a happy man.
PORTRAITS represents a series of portraits by photographer Amri Ginang. Featuring over 180 images exhibited in the form of prints, photo books and video clips, the show will celebrate the enduring prints and photo books trend which is becoming more popular again across the world. The subjects of Amri’s portraits come from all walks of life; it includes the famous singer Anuar Zain, film director Anwardi Dato Jamil Sulong, the late legendary 60’s singer Dato Ahmad Jais, international Malaysian model Yuen, multi-talented local talent Joe Young, a 100 year-old drummer from Sumatra and many more.

|Guest speakers at Amri Ginang Photo Exhibition 2015|
Commercial photographer Din Arshad, Wedding photographer Azam Neurmaya, Concert photographer Ajako Watanabe, Newborn baby photographer Kamalia Photolicious and Travel photographer Siu Lin Poon were the guest speakers discussing how they apply the art of portraiture within their respective specialities.

Among all the guest speakers, I am very interested in how Ajako Watanabe get involved in concert photography and I learnt a few things from him. The very important steps is how to get yourself involved in the music and concert scene. If they figured out you have talent in taking live concerts' photos, you will always able to shoot their next gig.
It is also important to know the right connection too, if not because of friends' network, I wouldn't be able to shoot for BIGBANG Concert the other day. Thanks again to Eric and IME Production for this opportunity =)
|Photo sessions guided by Amri Ginang featuring make up artists and photo models|
That evening, registered participants were also be invited to take part in photo sessions guided by Amri Ginang featuring make up artists and photo models.
I remember all the participants were hesitate at first but after a few minutes you will able to hear one particular participants that spam camera shutter like a machine gun hahaha. Imagine you are the model being aimed with a 70-200 and shutter sounds fast like a thunder. I would have feel intimidated. Luckily the models are quite professional and just pose for all the photographers.
I did shoot a few photos from the side as I didn't want to cramp together and compete for the best view. Below are some of my shoots. Do let me know what do you think bout it. I was trying to capture their emotions instead

|Photobook and portrait printing by HP.|
This event was supported by HP. The HP Indigo Press 10000 and HP DesignJet Z6800 are responsible for the high quality prints of this event.
It seems like nowadays printing can be done on many kind of surface including poster, metal or even marbles. I wish there's a good quality portable instant printer that I can bring along. Something like polaroid but not polaroid camera. Do you guys know any good instant-mobile printer?
