My Mosque Photo in DCM

My mosque photo was published in Digital Camera Magazine - Malaysian Version, June 2006 issue under Hotshots Section. Although it doesn't qualify to be the best shot of the month and I am not paid for the publication of this photo, having my work selected to be published has already made my day for an amateur photographer like me.

My good friend Ted might not agree with me. He is a pro anyway and I am talking about amateur photographer.

Riot of Colours II

Vibrant, striking and fiery colours have always been inspiration to many photographers since the inception of colour photography many years ago. Through colours we can communicate various ideas and expression to our viewers. Red always denotes passion and bravery while green is always associated with serenity, peacefulness and the colour of nature. Blue means coolness as it is always associated with water.

In modern photography of our time, when talking about vibrant and bold colours as well as interesting colour coordination the photographer that will come to mind is Pete Turner who is world famous for his bold colour works especially in presenting many ordinary things that just pass off in front of us unnoticed. While Eric Meola who is said to be Pete Turner's protege is another photographer fond of bold and vibrant colours whose juxtaposition and color coordination is spellbinding. At home we have Arthur Teng who won various awards overseas and locally and has published many books to his name yet he still remains amateur. Take a look at his inspiring works here which are all fresh images.

Colours to a black and white photographer are distracting but to a great colour photographers like Pete Turner, Eric Meola and Arthur Teng colours are inspirational.

Take a look at my humble colour photos below inspired especially by those masters.

Happy snapping!!!

The Twin Towers at Night

Many times I was told by photography sifus that when taking pictures of buildings and landscape at night, take it only when the sky still retains some colours normally deep blue. The time is approximately between 7.30pm (Maghrib Prayer Time) and 8.30pm (Isyak Prayer time) because after which the sky would go totally pitch dark and without any details - just black.

So the sky is uninteresting. One photography expert recommends another technique that is shoot double exposure - one when the sky still retains interesting colour but not dark enough and most building lights are still off and another exposure when the sky has gone totally dark with all the building lights on. Hmm that reminds myself I should give it a try some time as I myself havent tried that although I read about it some time ago.

Anyway although the sky has gone totally dark in these 2 pictures I kinda like the meandering curves formed by the light trails on the road and it acts as a foreground interest to the Petronas Twin Towers at the background. Kinda fresh perspective (at least to me). Taken from Sheraton Imperial Hotel, KL a couple of weeks ago.
