18/9/2011 Black and White at Batu Ferringhi

Woke up at 5:30 AM this morning for just one purpose, Sunrise photography. Destination - Batu Ferringhi.

After 30 minutes drive from my home to Batu Ferringhi, the sky was still dark when I reached my destination, so I just sit in the car, listen to radio and waiting for the right time. After 20 minutes, the sky started to turn bright, so I went to the beach and setup my gear to prepare for some photo shooting with my new bought B+W 10 stops ND filter.

Unfortunately, the Sunrise today seems not as I expecting as well, so Black and White photos was in my mind. After chosen the spot and did some exposure metering, I set the camera to Manual focus and screw in the ND filter.

Below are 2 of the results of 30 seconds exposure.

16/9/2011 Imperfect Sunrise

I have been woke up early today for one purpose, to capture the moment the Sun rises. I have not went out for Sunrise photo shooting for quite sometimes already, since it's holiday today, so I decided to take this time for Sunrise photo shooting.

I woke up at 6:20 AM, after brush up and packed my gears, I departed and drove to Jelutong Expressway. I revisit the place I visited before. By the time I reached my destination, the Sun begin to rises, after setting up all my gears and tested a few shots, I wait for the golden moment. Unfortunately, the Sunrise today seems imperfect, the color of the sky is not as what I expect. Anyway, I still taken a few shots, and converted it to black and white in PS.

By the way, this is my first time, using a black card for the photos, which use to make the exposure between the sky and the foreground more balance.

30/8/2011 Butterfly Farm, Penang

It has been long time since I posted my last post for the blog, partly due to my workload is heavier this year, but mostly is due to I have been laid back from photography for quite some times. So I have decided to pick up my gears and reignite my passion for photography again.

Yesterday was the beginning of the 3 days of public holidays, so I decided to revisit the Butterfly farm located in Teluk Bahang, Penang for some macro photos shooting. Due to it's long holiday, there're many visitors from other states visiting the Butterfly farm as well, that makes photo shooting a bit tough, so I guess I will not make another visit next time during long holidays. Anyway, after spending 3 hours there, my effort was not wasted, below is the result of my works.
