Photographs are straight out of camera JPEGs shot with a Canon 5D mark III and f/2.8 L lenses. For blog purposes, I used the M file size setting instead of the native 22 MP file size.
I've been seeing HOMEDEC ads along the LDP highway but little did I expect that I would actually be invited to the opening of the exhibition as a photographer blogger. Hence here I am writing this post.
For the uninitated, HOMEDEC is Malaysia's leading renovation, redecoration and refurbishment exhibition. It fulfills homeowners' needs by providing solutions, ideas, products as well as setting trends for the interior lifestyle industry, especially for home living. It was first initiated in 2003, and is organised biannually in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Kota Kinabalu. In Johor and Kuching, this exhibition is organised annually.
The exhibition highlight was the launch of "The Rooms at Design Street" where four life-sized rooms were given different themes and styles for bedroom, living and dining by their respective designers.
Dato' Vincent Lim of C.I.S network, the exhibition organiser says "We have come up with "The Rooms" to give visitors the latest and edgiest in interior design. By making high quality interior design more accessible, this can shake up the industry and give designers their due recognition."
There were heaps of media at this event - Bernama, Astro Awani, The Star, you name it.
