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.

Wonderful session with wonderful people. Although it was raining, sky was really dark and I thought well, we might have to postpone this session to another day. Waited for almost an hour and I already gave up. As I was packing up my stuff and ready to leave, suddenly the luck was on my side! Alhamdulillah.

It’s cute as I began to shoot this lovely couple, Min said “Faris, you only click the shutter one time.” I replied, “Well, yes Min because every shot counts.” Min didn’t realize until a few minutes later, “Oh, you’re shooting with film!” Can’t really mess up with film or else you might end up wasting it. I believe it’s a good practice.

Thank you Ari and Min for your time and patience. You guys did a great job!
