Slow Shutter Waterfall Photography

For this particular assignment, I went to Batu Hampar Recreational Park which is the location for the famous Serdang Fall in Kedah. This recreation park is just located approximate 15 km from the town of Selama. During my visit to this fall, there is a big warning sign telling me to leave the park immediately. The outrage of “Rat Urine disease” aka  Leptospirosis at several recreational park around Kedah had put this park at alarming Read more…

Marcus Tan Love Eunice Ng

Photography session with Marcus and Eunice on a rainy day at Straits Quay. Strait Quay is an interesting seafront hangout place that just opened in Penang. Shady cloud makes it perfect for portrait shooting as the light is just soft enough. The next good point about the weather is that my models don't really sweat too much and this makes them feel more natural throughout the whole photography session that lasts for about 3 hours. The only problem with Strait Quay is chairs. They do not provide any chairs for the shoppers. I wonder how will their customer keep on walking for the whole day without the need to rest their pity legs. (more…)

Shooting the Shooters at Kulim Shooting Club

Pro-shooter Leong Wei Heng aka "sifu". Look at the way he hold the shotgun. Believe me that this is not an easy "gun" that you think it is; just imagine that this gun weighted at 8lb or 3.5kg (minus the bullet). The event that I am covering for that day is "Soon Cheng Sai Trophy 2011" happening at Kulim Shooting Club. This might be something new to everyone to think that shooting isn't legal in Malaysia. Actually, they are illegal to own a gun or even a piece of bullet (if the police found that in your house, you will be pretty deep shit). Unless with proper permits from the government, you can actually own them legally. Please do not misuse this to kill any innocent people like me :) Getting the permit is one of the hassle, the next is to get your cash dry to purchase one. A piece of information from my friend is that the most basic gun priced at RM 30,000. That will be the bad news. The good news is that Kulim Shooting Club actually provide the facility to loan their guns to anyone who interested to join with lifetime member fee of one thousand plus per person. By this, you will be able to shoot legally for life.
