Fuji Pro 400H

Touching Strangers

g15 g16 g17 g18 g19 g20

You read it right. So, I was at Manly Beach, Sydney and I touched every single stranger I met (well, not really). And I’m telling you, only 1 out of all rejected me. It was that good till I became addicted to it and I wanted to touch everybody on the beach! LOL.

Shot on Contax 645 with probably some Fuji Pro 400H and Kodak Portra 400.

Mixed Film Stock

So I tested out a few film stocks just for fun. Top diptych was shot with Fuji Pro 400H, second and last were taken with Kodak Portra 400, third diptych was shot with expired Centuria 100. I think I’m going to stick with Kodak Portra 400 for a while and see how it goes. Love the colour rendition and fine grain produced by the film. All shots were taken with Contax 645.

PS: Can’t wait to blog about my trip to Sydney, Australia.

This was probably one of the most challenging photoshoot I have ever had. It was my first time and I had no idea how to get here. It took me almost 2 hours to get to this location, Pantai Kelanang, Banting. I must thank a few people for making this shoot possible. Zamir and wife, thank you for the time you spent to show me the way and be there till end of the session. To my beloved wife Maisarah, you are my greatest supporter, my backbone. What would I do without you? I can’t thank you enough for what you have done. Nanti I belanja makan sedap-sedap okey.

My heart was telling me it was going to be a good day and it was! It was bright and sunny but only for half an hour. The rest of the session was raining and cloudy. In fact, I had to stop shooting in the middle of the session because the rain was quite heavy. All I could do was protect my cameras underneath my t-shirt. There was no place to hide. Nevertheless, it was a fantastic session.

Khairena, is a personal yoga instructor slash fitness consultant and also founder of eatcleanKL. I must thank Khai for the extraordinary yoga poses you did, time, effort and energy you gave for this session.

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.

You can straight away tell when someone is so madly in love. Like people say and I quote, time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.

Naziah will be due in 3 months and I wish both of you a healthy baby and best of luck!

Shot on Nikon F6 + Agfa Vista Plus 400.
