PASM Workshop is now carrying a number of photography accessories for photop enthusiast. If you want to order, send your email, contacts number and number of quantities needed to sales@pasm-workshop.com.

RPS Studio Speedlite Accessory Kit (HK$495) is designed to fit most popular speedlites on the market today. The kit allows photographers to improve the quality of the light from small flash units.

The RPS Studio Speedlite Accessory Kit features grid spots for creating dramatic effects. Also included is a reversible silver/white bounce reflector, and a red gel filter (Additional gel filters may be purchased). All of these accessories are mounted to a speedlite via the included mounting frame that attaches to all speedlites via hook and loop fasteners which are included.

The mounting frame has adjustable click stops to keep it at the desired angle for either bounce flash or to position a filter and/or a honeycomb grid. You can also quickly move the grid or filter out of the way for standard flash photos. The mounting frame folds up flat for easy storage.

Consisting of a mounting frame, three honeycomb grid spots (30°, 40°, and 50°), a silver/white reversible bounce reflector and a red filter, the Dot Line RPS Studio Speedlite Accessory Kit enables you to better control the spill rate and reflective qualities of your on-camera flash.

For Glare Free LCD screen viewing… Checking your histogram, composition and focus outdoors is easy with Hoodman’s HoodLoupe. HoodLoupe is worn around your neck just like a normal loupe. When it is time to review your shot; bring Hoodloupe up to your image and place your eye up to the eye cup for complete glare free viewing. HoodLoupe has a +-3 diopter to accommodate those with less than perfect vision. HoodLoupe adjusts focus just like a binocular eye piece… you turn the eye piece in or out to set for your vision. HoodLoupe’s precise German glass optics give you a 1 to 1 ratio for true LCD screen viewing. Each HoodLoupe is encased in a user friendly rubber for comfort and protection from bumps that will occur throughout your shoot. Comfortable lanyard and compact protective storage case included. Fits up to 3.0 inch LCD screens.

David Hobby, the founder of Strobist (http://www.strobist.blogspot.com/), gave us exclusive permission to screen part of his 10-hour long Strobist Lighting Seminar DVD (http://strobist.blogspot.com/2008/05/now-available-strobist-lighting-dvds.html).

In this screening event, we will be screening the part on the Conference Room Headshot which is recommended by David Hobby for this screening. According to David, “that was designed as a progression through several basic techniques, and is a pretty good self-contained module”.

At the screening, there will be a lucky draw where we will be giving away Rosco Cinegel Swatchbooks (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/45184-REG/Rosco_950SBCNG0103_Cinegel_Swatchbook.html) and Rosco Strobist Gel Pack (http://www.rosco.com/us/video/strobist.asp?CFID=138423&CFTOKEN=80974460). These gel packs are color gels specially for shoe-mount flashguns.

In addition, Victor will also be displaying his collection on some of the Strobist equipment he acquired in the past years which includes products from HonlPhoto (http://www.honlphoto.com); Lumiquest (http://www.lumiquest.com/)…. etc.

Adobe announced that the new Creative Suite 5 will be unveiled on 12 April 2010.  Here’s a sneak peak video on one of the newest function, the “content aware” fill tool.  This really blows my mind away.

Meet the Artist at the Opening Reception on Dec 16, 7-9pm, Everybody is Welcome!

Start Time: Monday, December 14, 2009 at 2:30pm
End Time: Friday, January 8, 2010 at 11:30pm
Venue: Culture Club, 15, Elgin St.(lower), Soho, Central, Hong Kong

All the way from a place called “The Wirral” in the North West of England(about 10 miles north of Chester), Andrew Cattrell came to Hong Kong over 20 years ago and was immediately fascinated by the striking architecture of the city. Initially working as a computer draughtsman on projects that included the Exhibition Centre, the Hang Seng Bank and the HSBC building, he went on to study Interior Design. During this time he developed his skills in Photoshop, discovering the benefits of creating composite elevations and perspectives as well as the general power of the program. His skills eventually surpassed the needs of interior design and led to his current passion. In the bustle of city life we don’t always find the time to notice and appreciate the beautiful architecture that surrounds us.

His aim with this project is to give a fresh perspective to iconic buildings of the Hong Kong skyline and inspire us to look again.

After 4 months of planning, 6 grueling weeks of renovation, PASM Workshop finally opened its door on 24 October 2009.

In a nutshell, PASM is not just another photo studio or workshop, PASM is a unique new community where people of like minds and common interests can join together to share their passions and inspirations.  PASM is a dimensioned space containing infinite ideas.  Not only for photographers, PASM is for artists and educators from across the creative spectrum.

At PASM you’ll find a fully equipped professional studio with the latest equipment from Elinchrom, Skyport, Alien Bees, Profoto and much more.  Our 1,300 square foot studio features a 19 foot by 38 foot lane (that can be subdivided) along with 14 foot ceilings and a 450 square foot outdoor terrace (also suitable for shooting). Our Partners, Associates and Staff are ready to offer you whatever support you will need during your project.

Whatever images exist in your brain, at PASM they will become reality.

Our shooting lane can be easily converted into

(a) two 18ft. wide and 18 ft. long shooting lanes for small group or product shoots;
(b) one multi-purpose teaching area (seats 16 persons) equipped with projector and other teaching equipment and a 19ft. wide and 19ft. long shooting lane for live demonstration and practice (great for photography courses);
(c) the make-up counter linking together with the multi-purpose teaching area forms a great teaching platform for makeup / styling courses; and
(d) one large lecture room (seats up to 50 persons) equipped with projector and other teaching equipment.
