For a photographic enthusiast she/he usually has her/his own ardent subjects. However if she/he is a father/mother it is just so natural that her/his kids are one of the favourite subjects.

I have lost count how many pictures I have taken of my son and my recently born daughter and second come my nieces and nephews. I love to see their smiles especially their toothless smiles which are immortalized by a wonderful device called camera. They are all adorable and no wonder in the western countries there are photographers that are specialised just in taking baby and toddler portrait.

I would love to share with you some pictures of my daughters together with her brother and cousins.

My mosque photo gets published in the UK magazine for muslim

 
My photos of The Selangor State Mosque which were sold through istockphoto.com were used in a UK magazine for Asian Muslims in Manchaster and one of the mosque photos was used for the cover.

The editor Mr Amjad Ali has requested the hi-res image from me for the cover but as the request was late I was unable to provide him with one although he still proceeded using the low-res file as a cover. And Mr Amjad Ali was generous enough to send me one copy of the magazine free (the mag is distributed free in the UK) and was courteous for creditting me as the photographer of the cover.

The photo above is the mag cover which bears my mosque photo. The magazine was published in conjunction with the incoming Eid and distributed free to muslims in Manchaster.

Light & shadows

Shadows always intrigue me in photography as much as beautiful lights if not more. As a matter of fact the shapes, forms and textures that we can see and perceive in daily life are just made up of lights and shadows.

There are many photographers especially those producing black and white photographs who make use and manipulate shadows in a very interesting way and they sometimes render an abstract pattern. For example in Malaysia is Eric Peris.

These are what I have got after playing around with shadows one evening. Please feel free to contribute any opinions or criticism.

The Federal Territory Mosque

I have made several attempts to shoot the majestic Federal Territory Mosque before only to be stopped by unflattering lighting and hazy weather. Even when I proceeded with the shooting the result was far from satisfactory.

However early this month when I noticed the weather was so pleasant with the clear blue sky in late afternoon I went there again to try my luck. This time I was not disappointed. I was blessed with a very fine weather and towards the evening the low sun light oozed the charming and magical warm light that I had been waiting for all this while.

I was ecstatic and quickly set up my tripod, fitted the polarizer filter to my camera and took the meter reading off the bright part of the dome and snapped away. I enjoyed every moment of it. It was as if I was interacting with nature and the majestic architecture right before me. It was a passionate moment beyond description that may only be understood and empathised by fellow photographic enthusiasts.

When the day was getting dark I stopped shooting and started to pack my gear only to realize that I misplaced my lens cap. After searching the area for quite sometime while it was getting darker I gave up.

However I dont really mind, the lens cap can always be bought. It was the photo opportunity that really mattered at that time and I know I have obtained some pictures that I think I was happy with until i get the better ones.

Enjoy viewing the resulting pictures and leave your comments if you are willing to.

1. In the first picture, I was attracted to the side lighting and the warm low angle light
produced by late afternoon sun. It sort of made my son's face glow. Besides instead of shooting
him straightforward I shot him from behind the fence to do the framing which theoritically will
direct viewer's attention to the subject faster and to add interest.

2. For the second picture, I shot my son's playmate's legs only. Instead of shooting him in full view I just shot the legs to stimulate viewer's mind. In theory the viewers' mind will automatically completes (closes) the part of or a portion of anything familiar to him or her in the picture. For example when we see only part of a car, a portion of a familiar building, the front part of the animal we will automatically completes (closes) the portion to make it a full picture in our mind. In composition theory this is called CLOSURE.
