My Kids Again

Photographing my kids again because they are free model and ready for me at anytime. LOL. This time try out remote flash shooting. Using my 400D, 50mm prime and cheap cheap phottix remote flash controller. Plus some grainy effect processing. Looks good?

New born "baby"

November is the month of happiness, I guess. Also November is the month that I spent the most, in year 2009. From now on, I think I must eat roti everyday. This is because my "baby" came to this world. Who is she? She is not the ordinary baby that you seen always. She is "million dollar" baby. She came from Japan and shipped in a box. Let's me introduced my "baby", Canon EOS 7D.

I have been using my beloved 400D for ~2 years, just thinking to upgrade and getting another body for insurance. Adding another new member to my photography gear. As of now, I have investing more money in photography, mean deeper I went into the "trap". LOL. I'm not complaining my 400D, it still serve me well. Definitely, there are some limitation between entry level and semi-pro body. Well, I'm not going to talk a lot specification and not good in giving review, but I just want to share my happiness here. After the arrival of 7D, I will still keeping my 400D as a backup. Although experiencing DSLR for some times, I still need to learn how to operate and master this semi-pro level camera, no joke. Lots of thing to learn, lots of things that won't find in entry level camera. Before the upgrade, I was kind of worry am I making the right decision, because nowadays people talking about full frame, whereby I'm not. No harm to stay at crop factor body. Both full frame and crop sensor also can do photography, who cares? Nothing to worry about. "No matter white cat or black cat, can catch a mouse mean is a good cat".
All shots here using 7D at ISO 6400 by purposes. I will share my "baby" portrait soon.
P/S : Those pictures from previous post were using 7D. :p

Company's Event Shooting

Just in a month, I had been shooting 2 event for my company. Both were company's annual dinner, one is by invitation and another one is for my own department.

Normally end of the year, each of the department will held their own annual dinner for their employee. Both events were almost identical, full of fun and entertainment. But guarantee you won't get boring. Because of the shows was taken care by Fun Factory and their funniest Emcee, Michelle Goh with a half-half appearance. He-She is really a fun maker/joker. The audience really enjoy it very much. I mean if you can accept his-her style, thus I would said 90% of people like it. Although in between having some stage performance or magic shows, it still not as interesting as the funny Emcee. I shot lots of candid and covers some of the stage performance.

The funny Emcee, Michelle Goh

Michelle was making fun with my buddy, Keith. LOL

Photo outing to Taiping 2

After the a short stay at Taiping Lake Garden, we were having our lunch at the famous ‘Majalah 3′ featured Mee Udang Banjir Mak Teh at Matang, before heading to Charcoal Factory at Kuala Sepetang.

I didn't take down the picture of mee udang, however, you may find it here, in the blog post of our organizer. RM10 can get 10 pcs of medium size fresh prawn. Although the taste is so so for me, but prawn is really fresh. Worth it. The Charcoal Factory tour was the most interesting part. Bringing us the full process of making charcoal, from log to final product. Get to know some interesting facts as well. The tour guide aka the owner, was friendly and explaining to us patiently. I'm really enjoy about the tour, until I almost forgot about the photo taking.

Photo outing to Taiping 1

Couple weeks ago, joined our so called "paper mill" photography club to a day outing at Taiping Lake Garden and Kuala Sepetang Charcoal Factory. Well done by the organizer and total of 20+ photo kaki from 2 different paper mill site having great fun there. In this post, I will share the shots from Taiping Lake Garden.

On that day, the weather was fine. We all gathered and started off from Juru Auto City and reaching Taiping Lake Garden after an hour later. Not many photos were taken on that day. The reason is we have rush for another itinerary, "mee udang" and Kuala Sepetang Charcoal Factory. But I think I shall go back to Taiping Lake Garden again to explore for it beautiful landscape.

Wedding - Kevin & Chia Li (Part 3)

Here come the part 3. After a tiring and exhausted morning, it is time to take a break and get charge up for the wedding reception at Berjaya Hotel Ballroom.

The church ceremony ended around 3pm in the afternoon. I have 3 hours for me to rest plus prepare the same day slideshow for the night. Did I say rest? Eventually I only have 15min for my shower and that's it. The rest of the time arranging the slideshow and up by 6pm and it is time for me to get out shooting again. The reception was grand, full house of guest plus fun entertainment.
