In line with Nikon’s slogan of “At the Heart of the Image”, the aim of the 2-day event was to enrich the public with greater photography knowledge and tips, for both beginner photographers as well as seasoned amateurs.

Shutterbugs also tried their hand at capturing shots of models in the DSLR display area which featured a central boxing ring with models posing through the day.

Photography topics presented included interesting themes such as “Creating Winning Shots” by prolific amateur Liew Tong Leng who still retains a day job in the corporate world.

“Such a wonderful weekend meeting all those who came to listen to our workshops and
seminars. Definitely makes sharing a whole lot more meaningful,” said Bryan Foong, one of the Nikon Professional Photographers leading the workshops.

Fashion photography tips were shared by guest photographer Richard Chen and Nikon Professional Scott A. Woodward.

Travel themes were also of high interest with presentations from Nikon Professional Alan Lim and a sold-out seminar by Alex Soh on “The Travel and Landscape Journey”.

Other photographers speaking at the 2-day series of seminar and workshops included guest photographers Chng Peng Eik, sharing on Events Photography and Danny Lim on Food Photography.

This year’s I AM NIKON DAY also presented a much more interactive play area with Nikon’s latest camera models on display.

This included the first-ever display of the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR, which is the only unit on display in Singapore.

Avid photography lovers came in especially to look at the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR superzoom, and even had their chance to have a hands-on test of its prowess.
