A day with Photojournalism Walk

Month ago, attended a photojournalism walk workshop in Penang, sponsored by Canon EOS Academy Malaysia. The instructor was Vincent Thian. He is currently the Photo Editor/Chief Photographer of the Associated Press bureau based in Kuala Lumpur. Very good to have him to be here to guide us through the learning process. From the session, we understood how photojournalism works, every second count to accomplish every single assignment. Paying attention and focus to objective is the key to success. The day started with a title or assignment as "Daily Life". We had a walked in Georgetown Heritage area for daily life shooting. Although it was rain in the morning, we still enjoy the shooting moment. The body that I used is weather seal, but not my lens that. I have to use a towel to protect my lens. At the end of the day, we have to present 3-5 photos with very minimum time for processing. Constructive critics and comment will be given and we learn from mistake. Share some of my works here.


Good Morning...Penang II

Just had another sunrise photography session with gang at Penang Bridge. Recently, it was predictable to be rain in every evening and we are pretty sure there will be no rain in the morning. Gather a few "kaki" and wake up in 6am. We arrived in good timing. However, we have met a few enthusiasts already there to set up their gear and started the shooting. We should probably be there earlier. Not to say we are "kaisu", but I don't like to rush and make mistake later. Can buy some time to think and plan our shots. At the end of the session, I got a few shots that I like very much. Although it was not a perfect shots, but we will be back to that place frequently to try our luck for better shots. Enjoy.
