Come Away With Me, 1:22 PM, Tuesday, November 24, 2009
Its been more then a week since I handle this year Annual Ball event for HMC (HELP Matriculation Centre). Their theme this year was,
Roses & Secrets
"Take My Hand; Dance With Me"
When I first heard the theme and walking by the hall way back in Main Block with their poster up on the walls it made me feel this year ball is gonna be hard to pull off. The theme is all about elegance and romance. And very ballroom vibe was added to it. Then a lot of things came to mind since I went and say I would take charge of photography since no one is doing anything. At that moment I was like SHIT! Natalie Law what did you get yourself into now! Lol. Ms Winnie took on my offer and I had to get a team together as soon as I can. I texted Keith first then Karmun then later Jeremy. Ashikin and Dila was in right away when I asked them at college. When Karmun back out due to some reason Louis offered his services if I can get him a DSLR for that night.
The search came to an end. Dila couldn't make it cause of her mom which I totally understand. Besides there's not much to worry. I got Keith, Ashikin, Jeremy and Louis in the team. 3 of us had flash gun+diffuser on our DSLR's. The lightnings at the ballroom during performances was shit bad. No joke. I had a really hard time to get good shots. All of us were so close to the stage yet it was hard for any of us to get good shots due to the horrible lights. I was stressed out on my part. Last year lighting for the stage was the bomb. It was bright and we can get good shots only it was hard for us to get up close. But this year totally opposite.
Only the group shots and portraits was nice. This year has more hot, pretty girls compare to last year. As their dress, hair and make-up was way better then last year. Simple and elegant. Not much hot guys tho as last year. Guys were more casual this year. Fedoras, jeans and jacket. Doesn't go with the theme the ball committee have set. The performances wasn't really suitable as well with the theme. It was all from a different culture. The bands were alright. The Best Couple and Mr HMC & Mrs HMC nominations wasn't as good as last year. Maybe because I don't know them at all. XD
But I had a great time even tho I was kinda stress out for not getting as many good shots as I would wanted. I work great under pressure someone once said. Go figure. Anyways. I did a lil something for my team here to thank them for their effort and time! I manage to edit and pick out 555 photos from all 5 of us. 5555 wei! Can go buy 4D. Lol. I did collages for you guys. Ashikin Yee, Jeremy Lim, Louis Yap and Keith See thank you so much for having my back that night. You guys did great and we all pulled it off at the end of it all. And for Dila and Karmun, though you guys didn't manage to make it you both are as much as in the team as anyone of us cause you offered your help when I asked for it.
