What you'll do
This session will start early in the morning where the lighting is good for photography. If you would like to readjust the timing, I would suggest starting at 3 pm and finish at 6. The timing is flexible as we will be doing this according to the weather. In this 3 hours walking tour, I'll teach you some tricks in achieving professional-grade photography using your smartphone. First, we will meet up at a place with WiFi (to download the necessary apps). Then we'll start our journey, trying and testing on various subjects with your phone. Our walk will go through crowded streets, and colourful back lanes, so wear comfortable. I will also be taking photos of us doing the activities, and you will receive them later at night.
Hi, I am Faris and I am a freelance photographer slash designer residing in Kuala Lumpur; I design stuffs such as posters, banners, packaging, as well as furnitures. Being inclined towards creative behaviour, I find tinkering with new technologies very enjoyable. Since the last 2 years, I have been playing with photography using an average smartphone. The photo quality produced was quite impressive, considering I was using an Xperia Z1 back then. Nowadays, with advanced camera technology being injected into our smartphones, I believe we can utilise these gadgets for further professional use.
