A recruitment campaign will be organized and a total of 30 contestants will be recruited. The criteria of contestants should comprise people of different race, gender, character, fashion sense in order to create more spices and drama throughout the race. All contestants must be amateur photographers. 1 or more representative from Vertex Music will assist in selecting the contestants but the final decision will be made by representative from Sony. Contestants should be able to fully commit for 3 months (not exceeding this number) for this competition. Photography seminars will then take place before the official start of the race. All the contestants will then randomly be group to pairs to kick off the competition. Every week there will be groups eliminated from the race until the final 3 contestants are born on the final week.
Every phase professional photographers cum judge will be throwing out themes for the contestants to compete. Every group will then be required to produce a series of 5 photographs for every theme given. Towards the end of every episode the contestants are given time to explain and express their idea for every photo taken.

Arini aku nk bercerita lg ttg MHI yg tlh memanggil sorg professional photographer mr.noor azam dr NEUR Maya Photography...walaupun session tu skjb around 10-15mints only..tp inf yg diberi mmg padat & snang difahami..especially beginner mcm aku...ho3..Antara info yg aku dpt dr session td ialah :
Jika saya mahu memiliki sbuah DSLR. Ape aspek2 yg perlu diambil kire...
mr.Azam had 6 technical aspek thatt we can use b4 buy the DSLR
i. Image Quality :
Usually camera SLR ade saiz sensor yg lbih besar brbanding dgn camera compact & scr x langsung dgn adenyer saiz sensor yg besar, kualti sesuatu imej akn lbih baik serta keupayaan guna ISO yg tinggi. Lbih besar sensor lbih byk ruang tuk serap chy & scr x langsu jgkng akan kurangkn grainy(kite still lg carik maksud "grainy" nie..hu3) bile gune ISO tinggi..
ii. Ergonomik :
Means...bentuk ergonomik & handling yg baik..kalau kite tsalah pilih ergonomik (rasenyer kekemasan semasa memegang camera kot) ia akn beri kesan tuk jangkamasa pjng dmana kita akn rasa x selesa & sakit. Mr.Azam syorkan supaya any photographer pilih body yg ade vertikal grip..
iii. Ciri2 kwlan camera / man-machine interface :
Dgn adenyer button yg besar & jelas..ia akn memudahkn sett. ditukar dgn cepat & tepat..kata mr.azam..usually..picture / istilah yg slalu photographer guna ialah 'magic moment' berlaku dgn pantas & mgkin hanya satu saat jer..So..photographer xde mase tuk carik sett..at lease kalu ade basic cntrl mcm aperture, shutter, exposure compensation kene/mesti straightfwd.
iv. Viewfinder :
Viewfinder yg besar memudhkn faktor komposisi objek2 yg x diingini & xdpt dihindari. Cth fungsi viewfinder adlh spt dlm memfokus ssuatu pic.
v. System Focus :
Ssbuah camera yg baik sharusnyer boleh memfokcus dgn pantas dlm keadaan yg kurang chy..klewatan focus akan mnyebabkn photographer yg tlepas susuatu moment yg berharga..Sistem focus terletak pd body..body yg akn send signal tu lense tuk difocus & lense pon kene laju jgk..Means..system focus nie combination abt 2 tools body & lense..
vi. Sensor Cleaning :
Ciri2 nie penting tuk make sure lense sntiase bersih dr habuk..Ciri2 nie jgk bleh jimatkn mase & wang...kalu dibiarkan habur yg ade pd pasa sensor..lama klamaan ia akan merosakkn sensor kite..
Kat sini jgk kite perlu ade tool kit yg bleh kite bli/dpt tuk bersihkn lense...cth tool kits lense cleaning yg terdpt dpsran adlh mcm pic nie...:

|Red||This tends to have a dramatic effect in that a red filter lightens the yellows and reds while darkening the blues of the sky. By doing this, a dull photograph jumps to life. Red filters are ideal for "moonlight shots" during the day and for clouds in an impending storm. But note that a red filter will not be appropriate for low-light conditions or active subjects because it blocks the light by three stops, making proper exposure difficult.|
|Yellow||Most popular type of filter for b&w, particularly for landscape photography. A yellow filter darkens a blue sky so white clouds appear with greater brilliance.|
|Orange||Darkens blue even more than yellow filters to create a very dramatic cloud atmosphere in landscape pictures. Orange filters are also the most popular for magical effects.|
|Green||Makes greens lighter and reds darker. Hence, in landscape shots or close-ups, leaves would look brighter while red flowers seem darker.|
|Sky light/Ultraviolet||This filter acts as an excellent lens protector and also as a transparent layer filter that will absorb ultraviolet light.|
There's a reason some photographers strictly adhere to shooting only during the "golden hours", which is mornings and evenings. The light temperature is then warmer and the intensity not so harsh, casting a nice glow with long shadows to give a three-dimensional feel to the scene. If, like us, you often miss the first light, try shooting in the evening instead.
2. Position, position
Getting familiar with the area you're shooting in is a plus, and knowing where the light will fall at certain times of the day is a bonus. Although you will get a more even exposure with the sun behind you, try to avoid that — it will make your scene look dull and unflattering.
3. Highlights and shadows
The exposure for the sky and foreground often differs by a wide gap and most meters in point-and-shoots will be fooled into optimising the settings for the foreground which burn away the highlights in the sky. If your shooter has manual exposure mode or exposure compensation, try underexposing the scene by one stop to retain more information in the sky. It is better to lose shadow details than highlights.
4. Skies and clouds
It's beyond any mortal's control to determine where and when clouds appear. But when they do, there is a sense of depth to your picture and it makes the sky less boring, too. For a more intense-looking blue sky, attach a polarising filter if your lens can accommodate one. If not, most point-and-shoots allow you to tweak minor colour settings in the menu. So mix-and-match these settings for different results.
5. Silky waters
Waterfalls and streams are tricky elements to photograph. Although a tack-sharp shot looks nice, it doesn't represent fast-moving nature. If your shooter allows, reduce the shutter speed and use a tripod. With these settings, water will appear to be smooth and silky, thus making it more visually exciting. Alternatively, some point-and-shoots have scene modes for these situations. More often than not, they work well.
If your camera has manual controls for setting aperture, adjust it to about F3.5 or below. This creates a shallow depth of field which causes blur background while keeping the subject sharp. Your viewer's attention would also be drawn straight to the subject. If your camera has no such functions, try scrolling through the scene modes available — chances are there will be a portrait mode and this optimises settings for taking pictures of people.
2. It's all about the communication
If your subject is too tense, the picture will probably reflect it. Unless that is the effect you want, you'll have to talk to the person in front of your lens and loosen them up. Crack a joke or talk about the weather. If you know the person well, chat about things that interest him/her. They will start to relax and that's the moment you start snapping.
3. Level it
Get to the eye level of your subject. For children, squat down to take pictures of them. If your adult subject is sitting down, then you should get to his/her eye level, too. This makes them more relaxed as they don't have to raise or lower their head to look at you, which may cause some unnecessary discomfort.
4. It's in your eyes
They say the window to a person's soul is through the eyes, and this is especially true for portraiture. Try to fix your camera's focus on the subjects' eyes as this creates a more appealing picture than focusing on their nose or ears. If your point-and-shoot has only one focus point, frame the eyes within the focusing box, half-press the shutter to focus (don't remove your finger yet) and then reframe your shot before pressing the shutter button down fully.
If your subject lives in an interesting environment, use wide-angle lens to capture the surroundings in your shot. This will let your viewers have a better understanding of the subject and create a more visually attractive picture, too. But note that you shouldn't cram every item available into the shot — this may mess up the image and your viewer may be left wondering what you're trying to portray.

2day aku nk update sket ttg cam DSLR neh..sesuatu yg baru bg aku yg beginner..hu3..last monday aku g smule ke melaka...ade beberapa care baru yg aku dpt dr DSLR neh..
