The talk covered the three important basics about photography i.e. ISO/ASA, Aperture and Shutter Speed. Despite the apparent different levels of photography competencies among the attendees, the experiences shared by the veteran photographer were invaluable as he explained the importance of Aperture and Shutter speed settings during the days when ASA/ISO speed cannot be easily changed as can be done today using the DSLR settings.
Hj Mohd Yusof is currently the Head of the Audio Visual section in the Government's Information Department, under the Prime Minister's Office. He have been into photography since the early 70's, from black and white and colour films SLR, to medium format, to photoslides, to point & shoot digital and now to proper DSLR.
We also learned that flash photography is strictly not allowed in certain Royal functions as well as certain sensitive sports (snooker, pool), so it is important to use high ISO settings to overcome the lack of flash - this is where I have to admit the Nikons are way ahead with 25,600 vs Canon's 6,400 (heard the 50D can do 12,800).
The talk was concluded with presentation of the token of appreciation to Tuan Haji Yusof from Mohd Husini Bakar, BSRC Photography Section captain , followed by Group photo shot by BSRC non-official group photographer, Ichinoseworld. It was followed immediately with Sungkai.
Sungkai at the Serikandi restaurant is very reasonable, with 7 food/drink stations at $9 per head. What's more, if you come in 6, the 6th person will have it for free!
