Jarren Tham’s 1st Birthday

I was invited to Victoria’s son 1st birthday party celebration on the 9th January 2010. The party took place at McDonalds Restaurant, Center Point Damansara. Of course, Andrew was invited as well as the photographer for the event. I was there to help out Andrew a little and also to earn some experience in shooting a party.

Knowing that the majority of the crowds would be parents with their child of less than two year old, I try to restrict myself from using flash. Here are some of my picks.

Give the kid a balloon, you’ll get a series of nice shots.

It’s a father and son moment.

Believe it or not, all shots are done with just the Minolta 50mm f/1.7 on a APS-C camera body throughout the event. Anything wider than a 50mm focal length, Andrew got it covered:)
