Macro shots

Pic #1
Pic #2
To be frank, macro photography is not my cup of tea.

But weather lately has been unfavourable with gloomy and white sky ever since the tsunami catastrophe. I am not sure if it is interrelated but that's from my own observation.

Without a dedicated macro lens I was playing around with only a close-up lens which is screwed-in on my normal zoom lens so as to obtain virtually macro shot although not at 1:1 magnification.

I managed to get two decently sharp images which I consider.....err I leave it to you to judge.

Pic #1 is partially dried banana leaf placed on the window pane to be backlit.

Pic #2 is some drops of water on a yam leaf.

Kuala Lumpur

I have always wanted to record and document Kuala Lumpur. Its grand architecture, its old buildings especially, its fast-paced lifestyle and the myriad of activities taking place in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

For a start, as I found myself more free than usual one Saturday morning, I headed to KL and stopped at Merdeka Square. Merdeka Square (formerly known as Selangor Club Field) has witnessed the most historic event in its lifetime when it was there The Malaya's first prime minister the late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj declared independance of Malaya from The Bristish rule at 12.00 midnight on the eve of 31 August 1957.

I was impressed by how sturdy the tudor-style architecture of The Royal Selangor Club House is and how intricate and meticulous the moorish-styled Sultan Abdul Samad Building is. I was told that the British government at that time has opened a new brick factory just to supply the bricks to the construction of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. Must be a mega project back then!

I sat there and made my mental note of how I was going to shoot around this place and how to shoot effectively.

Here are some pictures that I consider suitable to display in public. I was pretty disappointed with the overcast weather and unflattering white sky. Nevertheless I perservere and make the best of the available light albeit pretty flat and unflattering.

Do enjoy the pictures folks!

The films used is Fujichrome Provia 100F

My portfolio online

I have made a new portfolio at

Fotopic in my oponion is better in presenting selective photos for permanent showcase as we can customize what we want the presentation to look like. I chose only photos that I consider good (good in my eyes lah) and suitable for display in portfolio presentation.

However I will still keep this fotopage updated as usual as this is more like a personal photoblog. You might or might not encounter the same pictures.

Till then happy snapping!

Kuala Besut - revisited

Whenever I went back to my hometown I would make it a point to go and shoot Kuala Besut. It is because I can always get different pictures as there is always different lighting, different weather, different position and types of boats and different season.

You dont believe me? Go and try shoot for yourself.
