I bet I’m one of the slowest to update this; 2 nights ago I had the privilege of catching Lin Jun Jie’s mini-concert at Kenyalang Community Hall upfront & close ~ props to International Times & Jimmy Chin for the exclusive media pass!
I’m easy going when it comes to music ~ any genre & language, as long as it’s good music, goes with me. While I’m not an ardent follower of the mandarin music scene, I could always hum up a couple of JJ’s song, although I may not recall the title of the songs accurately (me being a so-called banana Chinese). I find his songs catchy & somewhat contagious (always a popular choice at karaoke’s) & he’s got great soothing vocals to carry the tunes well. Hailing from
This event, being one of my first to cover, I couldn’t help but feel giddy & a little over-excited. Had even brought along the highly coveted 580EXII speedlite arsenal, on loan from my good brada Sexylips; so I could shoot better; which, made an embarrassment out of myself for a good part of the earlier pre-concert moments ~ I had no idea how to get the speedlite to work!! After a bout of panic call & fumbling through the details, only did I got it to light up & sync with my camera just in time for the start of the concert, but not before nearly blinding my poor white-mice subjects with my maiden shots, hehe. =p
The concert kicked off with a few words of speeches from the sponsors & organizers, followed by opening acts comprising of a hip-hop dance routine. The emcees, Deejays with a national Chinese channel did a great job of hyping up the atmosphere gave a good flow to the proceedings of the concert; yup I’m referring to the cute trendy one =)
I have great respect & admiration for live performers with great vocals & showmanship, & I must say JJ did not disappoint. He actually sounded better, live; during the performance, occasionally I found myself grooving to the rhythm & getting absorbed in the performance that I forget to shoot.
Overall, the near-packed concert was awesome, albeit a bit short; the autograph session nearly took quite as long as the concert itself, & I find the venue of the event leaves much to be desired.
Now here are some more shots from the event:*Yeaps, my photography skills leaves much to be desired too... i need to rely on photo-editing to save my life -_-
