A message from Mr BR:


FREE BOOKS. This is the last time I am stating this. I am giving away 50 copies of my new book The Golden Warisan Volume 2 (so far I have given away 4 books) to history students. All I ask is that you send me an email stating your name, your form, your school and your school history teacher and if okay I will email you back for you to come and collect your book. I won’t be doing any more reminders on this blog, so there. Earlier I placed a limit of one book each and no more than two students per school, but I am willing to accept more than two students per school seeing that there don’t seem to be much interest. Last Offer.

The book is also available, not for free, at Best Eastern, Bismi and Book Lane bookshops throughout the country for $15 each. For that you get 52 articles in 334 pages and tons of black and white photographs of old historical Brunei and scenes that you will never ever see anymore in Brunei.

In conjunction with the launch of Canon’s latest DSLR, the high-tech EOS 5D Mark II, National Geographic photojournalist and Lightstalker, Kris LeBoutillier was in town to give a talk on photography at the Empire Hotel and Country Club in Jerudong yesterday. The talk was organised by Interhouse Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor of Canon products which includes digital and non-digital SLR cameras.

In his talk, Kris focused on mastering the basic technical skills and knowledge in photography, which according to him, will open up doors for photographers in Brunei to excel in their field. He also talked about the history of photography from analog to digital, showing the pros and cons of both formats of photography.

“Learn the secrets of the film era photographers that focused more on skills and art and not technology alone. Also learn the right ethics and attitudes regarding the use of cameras in photography,” he said.

“Knowing yourself the individual camera parts as well as its basic function, proper handling, care and safety is also important. One must also be familiar with the basic image capture technology either through CCD or CMOS as well as the different storage formats such as RAW, T1FF and JPEG. Know the different shooting formats such as the 35mm or full frame SLRs, as well as APS-sized DSLRs,” he added.
