Practice and Not Perfect...yet

Location : Sutera Harbour, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

Practised metering and exposure of sunset. Not sure if its ok but needs to practise more...
(* blom berani mo tag sifu2 di fb...nnt la karang....segan kalo syok sendiri lg...)




I Trust You Sifu...

Location : Likas Lake near Likas Stadium, Likas, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

Joined a practical metering and exposure tutorial by Lano Lan on 19 September 2010 from 8.00am to 4.00 pm. At last I really understand how to meter light and exposure to produce a well balance photo. At last I understand the concept of metering, focusing and why a photographer keep moving their camera before taking a shot.
(* baca manual separuh mati pun inda juga paham2...slow shutter betol..huhuhu)

Hopefuly after this my photos will be improved but it really need practice and practice and practice and keep shooting everyday...My sifu said it took him 4 years to master the metering, how on earth can we grabbed it in a day...
(* dun wori sifu, sia akan praktis sampai rusak tu kamera atau autofokus sia lari sdh.....hehehe)

Anyway thank you so much for the knowledge, original exercise and real experience. May God bless you.

Here are some of the experimental photos taken during the tutorial with tunggang-langgang exposure. These photos were straight from camera, unedited and watermarked only :

* kana test tinggi rendah langit...perasan pandai, syok sendiri tinguk foto sendiri..huhuhu...

Just open up ur eyes

Location : Tallangatta, Australia



"For the first time you can open your eyes
And see the world without your sorrow
Where no one knows the pain you left behind....

And all the peace you could never find

Is waiting there to hold and keep you
Welcome to the first day of your life
Just open up your eyes..."

- Song by Daughtry - Open Up Your Eyes -

* another awesome song from Daughtry that touched my heart....;)

the more powerful the photo, the less it makes viewers think about photographic technique, and the more viewers tend to think of the subject matter, with technique forgotten.
