Night Shots of a different kind

I love taking night shots, especially with a tripod, and fooling around with shutter speed and f-stops. Those are with subjects that are stationary. Recently, Breeze Sabah, a new lifestyle magazine, asked me to take photos of the entertainment scene in KK. I have never done these kind of shots but I took up the challenge. Generally, 99% of my photos can be thrown out, but these are some that are worth showing, plus a photo of my friends whom I bumped into.

Hi Wendell,

As I mentioned in my email. Your pics are very well taken. Interesting how you capture your subjects. I also like to take pictures but I don't even consider myself at amateur level apalagi pro macam kau hahaha. I have a Canon Digital camera I bought in Singapore for about SGD800/-. I'm happy that a sifu like you thinks that the picture I took of my son are nice :P. I main tipu a bit lah. I used software to make it cantik2 a bit. Hey, I heard they have a Photography club set up recently, are you a member? I wanted to buy an SLR Digi Camera that day but scared that my wife would scold me.It cost about SGD 2K+ in Singapore. Really tempted to buy it but you know how wife can be lah with their husband's expensive toys.

My son turned 4 on 30 April. I took those pictures of him in my friendsters website when he was about 9 months old.

I'm always the one taking pictures of him with his mom, so when he grows up, he'd probably wonder how come I was always not in the picture.

One fine days, we should meet up at The Cocoon and you show me some pointers yah.

Hi Justin,

Hey you know, the toys are sometimes good investment. Especially for a camera, I would highly recommend a DSLR if you want better results. You can manipulate the light to your liking. Some people are talented photographers, and anything they shoot, with any camera, will end up great. But for me, I have to depend a lot on my camera because I am still amatuer. On the software, yes, I admit, I have to also use it when needed, but as much as possible, I like to make the photo good in-camera.

Good luck getting the camera. Tell me when u get it.
