Fashion photography newbie tested at Ice Watch Event

One thing I have never explored in this predominantly arts & culture blog is fashion photography. Especially when shooting the runway. I was given the chance to do so at Ice Watch’s event at C3 in Greenhills yesterday.

I did not want to use internal flash, I swear. I managed not to use it in Malate, relying solely on my exposure settings for brightening up the dark places, but I couldn’t get away with it this time around. Thank goodness I just recently discovered where Shin-Chan2’s shutter speed settings are. That wasn’t enough, though. Tinkering with my exposure and ISO wasn’t enough either. I ended up using my internal flash. *Sigh* (This is one of those times when I actually miss my old dSLR, Shin-Chan, which allowed me to save a customized setup for events.)

Anyway, I got home waaaay too tired from the event. As my sister put it in her recent entry, we “spent an hour and a half in Greenhills trying to get a cab in the heavy downpour, getting soaked and walking from Missouri to the main street? This is included in the 6-hours total of me standing. In heels.”

So yeah…in the essence of keeping our vibes positive, this will be a photoblog. =^.^=

Testing for the fashion shoot. Um. This is broad daylight, though.

The events place is pretty! Love the lights!

This group tripled its size later but I forgot to have our pic taken.

So I grabbed this from Askmewhats.

Askmewhats, IamBrigitte and Shen’s Addiction.
Hm. I could’ve sworn there were still more of us…

Bevy of Ice Watches.

I actually think this collection is cute.

The more expensive sets.

This was when I started using internal flash. T.T

Some of these models walk so fast, it was torturous to use slow shutter speed.
I had a brief internal battle: choosing between speed and better lighting.
I went with the latter.

This is what happens when you’re fighting for better positioning.

The head honchos of Ice Watch. Toast!
