I am Mohd Irsyadi Bin Ismail and a third year student of Universiti Technologi MARA in Shah Alam, Selangor. I studied Bachelor of Creative Photo Media (Hons.) I joined Star Media Group as an intern in January 2016. I gained a lot of knowledge in the Editorial department, mainly in the Photo section.
I would like to thank the editor and colleagues (senior photographers) who taught and shared their knowledge & experience especially on photography techniques & skills and how to take good pictures as well.
During my internship with Star Media Group, I was given various assignment by the desk which covered many areas such as news, sports, food review, entertainment, business, Mstar and Kuntum Magazine.
The most extreme assignment for me was an assignment by the news desk which I have to work together with other photographers and videographers in order to get a better pictures.
We were taught to cooperate with the journalists to ensure the pictures they need really meets the requirement of the story. The details about the picture such as moments & angles are very important and to be considered carefully before we can deposit it into the system for the reporter to choose a good picture.
Last but not least, I’m grateful and proud to be one of the interns in this company
