Featured Portrait – Hayda

This image was taken last year when I still had my 5D. I wanted to create a classic look with the lighting. This one was taken with just the modeling lights of 2 strobes, one on each side of her.. But the interesting thing about this image is the post-processing. This one was first converted …

Featured Landscape – Sunset in Johor

The 5D and EF 35mm L combo is brilliant for landscape. Unfortunately, I have since parted company with both of them (sigh). This one was taken 2 years ago and i still continue to revisit it and re-process it based on new processing techniques I have learnt since. The colours here was obtained by pushing …

Featured Wedding Photography – Henna On The Wedding Day

Malay custom, though based on Islamic principles of marriage, are heavily influenced by the neighbouring areas like Jawa, Sumatra, the Indian sub-continent, China, the Middle East and the West. This is probably due to the strategic position for trade between the China and India and the heavy influx of immigrants from these countries in the …

Potraits – Of Family

I had a HUGE family gathering in the weekend with about 150 people. At last count I had about 100 first cousins. I normally get very introverted around family and mos tof the itme would be tucked away in the corner somewhere. Not this time though (though I was able to hide behind a camera …

Featured Flower Photography – We Are Family

I bought my beloved EF 85mm f/1.2 L just under a year ago and its my favourite lens. Take away all my other lenses but leave me this one. Canon calls it the definitive portrait lens not only because of the very large aperture but because of the colour saturation, contrast. sharpness even when wide …

Easy because you can take your time and of course both the photographer and the subject is the same person and therefore you’re in charge. I took this as an experiment with lighting. …

Featured Architecture – Twins of Kuala Lumpur

The PETRONAS Twin Towers is fast becoming the most photographed building in Malaysia and who could blame the thousands of people (tourist and locals alike) who stand in awe of the building everyday. I once worked there on the 69th floor and I remember the feeling I had everytime I drove to the office in …

Featured Landscape – Sky Over KLCC

I waited for about 3 months to get my TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L. Apart from the tilt and shift function, the colours and saturation that this little lens gives is just plain amazing and I still can’t get over it. It is one of the sharpest lens I have and I feel when used properly …

Featured Photo – In The Field

This was a very bad and dull image though I liked the scene. No matter what I tried I couldn’t push the colours or the contrast of this image without sacrificing something in return. So I decided to do a few things. First was to process the RAW to get as much detail in the …
