An unexpected Photo Shoot with Beenas Models at Bawadi Mall Fashion Show

It was hubby's birthday last Thursday and we all agreed to dine in at TGI Fridays in Bawadi Mall. It was like a double celebration because I did pass the Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) Provider course. At half past eight in the evening, off we went to Bawadi Mall. As always, I had my 2-year old but ever reliable camera with me--ready to capture some precious moments.

Bawadi Mall is located 6 km. to the southeast of Al Ain Town Centre on Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Road. That's why it took us 20 minutes to travel from our house. Since it was an eve of a weekend, most of the Al Ainites were spending the rest of the day inside the mall. It was expected to see lots of shoppers and visitors. From the main entrance, we walked towards the wide concourse and noticed that some of the shoppers were gathering towards the center. We've learned about the fashion show and decided to watch the 9pm show before we had our dinner.

Allow me to share these photos taken by me with Canon EOS 500D (with 18-200mm lens attached on the camera) and speedlite 430 EX II with Phottix white diffuser. If I had only known this earlier, I would have brought my prime lens with me (Canon 50mm f/1.8 or my Canon 100mm f/2.8 USM). By the way, these photos were taken with permission from the events coordinator. Please be informed that there's no post processing done except for the watermark and resizing them in low resolution format. In case you are interested to obtain the high resolution copies, drop me a line at


I have taken lots of photos but I don't want to post all of it in just one blog entry. So next post will be these  models in Giordano apparel.

Bawadi Mall's Fashion Show is set on stage every weekend and runs through until 1st of June 2012 with show timings at 06:15 PM, 07:30 PM, 09:00 PM and 10PM. Visit and catch the newest trend in fashion.
