Photographing inanimate objects is a far easier task than people. There's no need to engage with a cupcake nor deal with its self doubts (does my frosting look good? Is my strawberry topper unbruised?)  and you'll never ever have to get it to relax its posture either. When you're a naturally shy and quiet kid like me who view the word party as death sentence, it's twice as hard to appear bubbly and cheerful when your DNA is programmed to do the opposite.

I jumped at the opportunity to attend a photography workshop organized by the lovely guys at Green Light Digital on behalf of Simply Health. I've learned a few new jokes, tried a new lens to shoot, gorged on street food at KERB, caught up with the effervescent Emma whose smiles can light up any room and left with several helpful tips from our coach, Paul who's also an award winning photographer.

Thank you, Green Light and Simply Health for the fantastic day. A huge thank you to Annie,  Jess, Olivia, SarahEmma and Lucy for offering their services and volunteered to be willing victims models.

    1. I was channeling a cupcake :P I know what you mean. I'm still not the best in front of the camera. I love photography only because I get to be behind the lens.
