here are the first batch of pics from my camera. enjoy!
Wahh! Great pics Kwun!
Nice pics kwun! More...
definitely! takes a lot of effort to post-process these pics!
but then some of them turned out quite well i must admit. didn't waste my effort!
-great photos kwun.
-are those taken with the factory len came that with your camera?
-glad to see natsir dump her at700 for the 800de which is more appropriate for her.
great action pics Kwun!!...finally can see the results of your hardwork..and also interesting to see pics from different angles..hmm, i'm assuming more are coming?!?!..
Hmm, your effort really shows(and to a certain extent *confirms*, at least to me) that you have the "inner talent" to be a Photographer, a professional badminton photographer to be exact..Now, we have a competitor for Mr. Raphael Sachetat(IBF official photographer)
those pics are taken with a high-end lens that cost over US$1600 ! i rented one for the whole weekend, costed me US$40. but well worth the money..
yes. if i get some spare cycles, i will try to do one set per evening. it took me a while to figure out a proper sorting/processing flow. i think i have narrowed it down. i will also need to upload them to the photo gallery section.
hehe. i wouldn't call it "talent" coz i definitely have very little of it. but i think with enough passion, it can take the place of talent. it was definitely a lot of work taking photos, and now i appreciate the amount work a photo journalist / photographer need to put in. not only have to spend a whole day at the event, they also need to sort, write and then publish by the end of the day. i was sitting across Raphael and his gang in the media room, and those guys works really hard and i can tell they look more and more exhausted as the days goes on.
Thanks for the pics Kwunny
Wah, adding photography into your CV now I see, vewwy good lah!
Hey Kwun, what's the max kbs that we can upload as picture attachments on each post? I was thinking how when I was taking pics at the NZ Open, the lowest resolution I have on my camera is 200kb and then it goes up to 1.2mb, then 2.0mb. It was really annoying having to take pics at 200kb as the pics aren't that clear and my zoom capaibility is minimum on my lil sony digital camera.
So I was wondering, Can I take pics with higher resolution and then somehow photo edit it later without losing the photo sharpness/quality? If this question sounds dumb, forgive me, I'm anything but clued up when it comes to technical, computer stuff..I'm just a girl who luffs badminton dang nabbit!!
great pictures !!!!!!!!
can you give us the camera and lens specs???
I do agree with you its REALLY i mean REALLY TIRING!. Long day.. no sleep also. Only the GAME keep you going.
here are the WS finals pics...
cheers kwun, the 4th pic isn't the most flatterring pic of XXF I've seen
wah, lovely pictures ! thank you !
Well done Kwun. These are realy good shots, especially since you were not allowed to go on court.
And to reassure everyone, Kwun and I will never get to be compétitors, but rather partners, as we certainly hope to have Kwun join the BP team whenever he can. But we also have other projects in common (including some good opportunities for you guys to have quality photo prints at a special rate for BF members).
It was indeed exhausting to cover the world champs - long, very long hours on site + hours of processing after that, in order to send it all to the medias and Federations we work for at BadmintonPhoto. Jeff and Yves, who have helped me through out this week have done a great job as well.
Talk again soon
i know... but the last one is...
Do you have pictures of WD final ? And also the ceremony ?
I cound not find them. Thanks
Nikon 70-200/2.8 VR
Nikon 1.4 TC
the 70-200/2.8 + TC really made the pictures possible. almost all of the pics are cropped and they remain pretty sharp.
i wish i have rented an even bigger lens though...
i have some. but not many and they are not that good quality. i will try to process and post them tomorrow.
hey Raphael, such honor to be complemented by the official photographer...
yeah. not able to get on the courtside limited a lot of shot choices and angles. but i had to do with what was available. the result was much better than what i expected, actually.
i look forward to seeing your team's pics. i remember seeing quite a few impressive ones when i was peeking over in Yves computer!
