Infrared Pre-Wedding

Love it has so many beautiful faces
Sharing lives and sharing days


My love it has so many empty spaces
I'm sharing a memory now I hope that's how it stays


Now I'm deep inside love and still breathing
She is holding my heart in her hand
I'm the closest I've been to believing
this could be love forever



All throughout my life the reasons I've demanded
But how can I reason with the reason I'm a man
Oh, oh yeah, ummm huh
In a minute I'm needing to hold her
In an hour I'm cold, cold as stone
When she leaves it gets harder and harder to face life alone


Now my dreams are filled with times when we're together
Guess what I need from her is forever love
Ooh, ooh yeah oooh umm Oh, oh yeah
Now I feel forever love oooh
Oh, I feel

Pulselovers Skintone

Location : Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

An Infrared Photographer from Indonesia, Fitra Pranadjaja once mentioned to me that to do an Infrared Photography, one must have a BIG interest in editing and an AMPLE time to sacrifice. He allowed me to have a look at his camera and his infrared photos in that camera and that was the first time I saw an original infrared photo.

As for me I do have a GIANT interest in infrared but SQUEEZING my tiny time to do all the editing process. Sometimes it becomes so obsessive that I will find even a minute to have a look at my infrared photos, and I have'nt mentioned yet about editing time...and skintone editing is very time consuming....

Ok, talking about skintone. Original Pulse infrared photo has a bluish and pale skintone where you can see a few milimetres below the skin which means we can see veins clearly in exposed skin. For me the distinct color is very unique and can be used in different editing concept such as gothic, spooky, ghost, scary pictures and even action impact posters. However for a decent potraiture we need to edit the skintone to closely match the original human skintone. A few things I have learned in the process :

1. Skintones must match the background tones/mood
2. We can change a person original skintone for example, someone with fair skin can be changed to a more tan/darker color

Well, thats a few lessons to be shared today...see you soon...

Infrared Skintone

Location : Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

I have problems with skin selection using selection tools in photoshop. The problem is we still have to brush the skin that need to be edited using brush and brushing it manually. I wish I can find a way to speed up the process of skin selection. It is very time consuming and gave eyestrains....

Sink In Red

I found the dark skies I always wanted in infrared. Now I have tons of colours to choose and I am very bad at making choices. Here love both colors of red and various tones of red....all red...


Here are the two pictures of those red tones above in larger version....
A fresh red...

Pulse Strength

Location : Tun Fuad Stephen Park, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

Left picture :
A SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera) photo of Pulse Infrared

Right picture :
After editing...which involves standard swap channel, level and blue color tweaks in the sky

Now lets compare which one you like? Which one best suite your taste? I admit I love both photos. The left picture brought the feeling of orignality, humble, untouched, a breath of fresh air while the picture on the right emitted a ray of lavish life, almost like an awards night, luxury taste and excellent view...

Hijau is Green

Location : Kg. Hungab, Penampang, Sabah

Bumi yang tiada rimba
Seumpama hamba
Dia dicemar manusia
Yang jahil ketawa

Bumi yang tiada udara
Bagai tiada nyawa
Pasti hilang suatu hari
Tanpa disedari

Bumi tanpa lautan
Akan kehausan
Pasti lambat laun hilang
Duniaku yang malang

Dewasa ini kita saling merayakan
Kejayaan yang akhirnya membinasakan
Apalah gunanya kematangan fikiran
Bila dijiwa kita masih lagi muda dan mentah
Ku lihat hijau

Fading Away

Location : Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

When you look me in the eyes, And tell me that you love me. Everything's alright, When you're right here by my side. When you look me in the eyes, I catch a glimpse of heaven. I find my paradise, When you look me in the eyes. More and more, I start to realize, I can reach my tomorrow, I can hold my head high, And it's all because you're by my side. * Jonas Brothers

Burning Heart

Location : Tanjung Aru Beach, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

Hatiku berdarah kembali...
biarkan ia mengalir pergi...
cairkan ia dilautan kalbu...
larikan ia dari pandanganku....


Oh Langit...sampaikan salam rinduku, dendamku kian padam, diserap bayangan semalam..
Oh Laut....hanyutkanlah dosaku, tenangkanlah malamku, pergilah buat selamanya....

In the process of recognising human original colors , human infrared original colors and finding the in between colors of these two world. Its a fantasy, an imagination, a surreal but its an art and there is nothing absolutely wrong or right in art, but it is all about mood, aesthetic and creativity.....

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.
