Syawal 1434

I hope it’s not too late to post some photos from Eid considering today is the last day of Syawal. I have been wanting to post it a while ago but this is what happens when you let procrastination takes control. It’s really really bad.

I would like to share the importance of personal work. There’s no other way to be better but practice, practice and practice. You need to go out there, explore the world and be inspired. When you always sharpen your skills, you are able to see things clearer. Background, lights, trees, people, details, exposure, composition and more. I sacrificed tons of film just to experiment and see what will happen if I do this and that. Indeed, it costs you a little but consider that as an investment for your personal skill development (at least that’s what I told my wife, I think she bought it). As you go along, there will be more and more to learn.┬áBe more alert to things around you.

This set was captured on Fuji Pro 400H.

Nadia & Amin / Pre-Wedding

It was a challenge session for me because this was impromptu. A sudden request after I have just finished all my films and considering it was 4 Syawal, not many shops opened and I had to drive all through the town to find whatever available films. Fortunately I found Superia 200 but then the sky was getting dark when we got to the location. It was alright but I was shooting at a very minimum speed, hand held (average speed was 1/30-1/60). Gotta be as sturdy as tripod and man, it was not easy at all.

Want to be in front of my camera? Drop us a line!

Hot Sunny Day

Out on a hot sunny day at the beach? Sounds perfect. Need to get some fresh air when you had too much food during Eid. Besides, there’s nothing more fun than spending time with your loved ones. My wife told me “Ah, how I wish there’s a beach 15 minutes away from our place”. I replied “That’s possible if we move to Kota Bharu”. Perhaps one day? :-)
