Koh Lipe Citizens

One of my favourite things to do while travelling is to capture faces of local citizens. To be honest, at first I was afraid to ask but when I think again, I have got nothing to lose. If they refuse, I will just walk away. Well, guess what? I was fortunate during this trip because non rejected me.

I’m not familiar with asking complete strangers to be photographed. In fact, this was my first time but all I can say is, smile, smile and smile and insya’Allah they will smile back at you. Once you’ve got the eye contact, the process becomes smoother. Most of the time they will say yes.

Most of my shots here were taken with Nikon F6 + Tudorcolor XLX 200 and Superia Xtra 400. Photo of the bald guy, shirtless with a scar line on his stomach was shot on Contax 645 + Pro 400H.
