This is a very interesting experience for me. If you know me, you will know I’m actually interested in photography. Previously I’m not very familiar with Sony’s camera, can’t even think about to have one Alpha Camera.

After the workshop, I came back to KL, I keep telling people, my dad (He was interested photography too), and my friend about this awesome Alpha Camera, Sony α7.

Sony Alpha Workshop-01

In the event I heard from many of the professional photographer, they said this α7 is the PRO-est camera! Well, after 2days of using it, it’s really impress me la honestly! I like the photo’s colors the most. After I went back KL, I plug-in my SD card to check, see whether the color still the same as the quality I saw in the camera’s screen.

Below I will show you few of the photos I shoot on the day, and also few of the photos from the professional photographer I met that day 🙂

We’re just arrived the hotel. The Emperor Hotel, Malacca.
