Hyper Portrait Photography Workshop by Yaman Ibrahim

When we talk about “Hyper Portrait” we will end up talking about Yaman Ibrahim. His iconic style of “Hyper Portrait” has been recognised worldwide. It has been 2 years since his first HP Workshop was held at Kota Kinabalu, and i missed the workshop. Since then, i always look forward if there next Yaman Ibrahim workshop to be organised. Not enough with his iconic “Hyper Portrait”, his travel photo especially India is really amazing. Those images rewards him many international photography award. I am really proud of him even we have never met before. He is in my list of “Inspiring Photographer”.

On 26-27 OCT 2013, his “Hyper Portrait Workshop once again held in Kota Kinabalu. It was organised by a handsome team, Agoesk SK, Affendy Soeto, Sharif Putra and Yusnizam Yusof. It was held in Arena Belia & Sabah State Museum for the photoshoot session. There were about 11 participant which comes all the way from Sarawak, Brunei & Sabah.

During his workshop, we learnt the importance of good lighting & composition. We kept reminded to get the super fine quality images as possible during the shoots, pre-visualization, explore various angles & different composition. Besides of that, he also shared with us stories behind his winning images. Everybody know’s his winning image of Taj Mahal, Yamuna River and a single lady.

The 2 images below are the result of what we have learnt in his 2 days workshop. I personally am satisfied with his excellent teaching skills, clearly he had nothing hidden “tools” that he will tell everything about his editing style. Thank you organiser for conducting the workshop & keep it runs smooth. Well done to every participant for your effort making your weekends learning more about photography & editing skills.

Me and Yaman Ibrahim
