The Organizer

This is his 3rd workshop in Kuala Lumpur organized under my good friend Anthony Barlan LMPA.  He has been organizing photography workshops for several years now and also doing his own conducted workshops recently. His works also won awards from known photography award winning bodies like MPA, PPAC and more.

Like any previous workshops organized by Anthony, the second day is always post processing day where participants sit in a room together with the master and the instructor goes through the process of how he edits the photos taken from the previous day.
this way, they all get to see how the master thinks and approaches each problems encountered when doing the post processing.

The Participants

Erich Caparas attracts photographers in an international level so some participants from outside of Malaysia go to KL just to attend his workshop. 
It is so great to meet and interact with fellow photographers. Although my part for this workshop was just to assist the participants, I learned a lot and gained a lot of friends. 
I think that is one of the wonderful takeaways in these kind of workshops aside from the learning how to shoot and post process aspects.

The Location

The workshop was held at Elementum in Petaling Jaya.
Address:
C5-M6, Parklane commercial hub,
Jalan perbandaran, kelana jaya
Petaling Jaya, Malaysia

I must say this was a perfect location for the workshop. The place is so spacious with modern design and well lit. The makeup room on the  next  floor above is huge. 
What I like most is that the owner Eunice was so accommodating. She always looks after making the place tidy and always asks what is needed.
I highly recommend this place for parties, conferences or even photo shoot for photographers. 
Check out their facebook page for more information.

Another successful one, congratulations to my friend Anthony Barlan for a well prepared workshop. Months of planning really resulted to a smooth workshop. Also congratulations to Erich Caparas.
The support of main sponsors Phottix and DSC World was overwhelming as they really made sure that the participants were not left by their own. They sent very helpful representatives to answer questions and assist the participants in getting the correct lighting setup they wanted.
