A Man from Punjab India…

I met this man while I was busy doing an assignment around Brickfields Kuala Lumpur, actually he is working at a Restaurant not too far away from a Monorail Station. He can hardly speak any Malay but he can speak well in English. We have our breakfast at his working place, just a “Roti Canai and Teh Tarik” a very simple Malaysian morning breakfast. He said he came from Punjab India.

I forgot to ask his name, but definitely I will come here again and maybe again. He is friendly guy, easy going and not too shy to be photograph, in fact he insist to be photograph. So I took the opportunity to take a few quick shot of him because I don’t want to interfere with his work taking order from his customer.

He said he was a wedding photographer back home in India, I wish I could spent more time chatting with him but I’ve other works to do. I want to learn more about him, who knows, I might get a chance to go to India someday, at least I’ve a contact person to show me around and most importantly to share the same passion, photography.

My Love in Light and Shadows…

This is a photo shoot taken just next to Masjid jamek LRT Station, the building is OCBC Bank. I like the lighting here and beautiful perspective. On the left side of My Wife and My Son is a busy road main road, so it is not a very good idea to let my son running freely here, let it be in My Wife comfort zone, the weather was not so good either, rain most of the time. Usually people take a portrait of their family at the park or garden but it is too common and I don’t really like the idea, I did a couple of shot in the garden or local park but I was more interested to take a picture of my son and wife in the crowded area or where I can find a beautiful background and lighting.

Ismeth Ulam Raja - Nice playing with available light. Like the subjects interaction captured.

I really enjoy any type of photography especially when it involve human, I like doing a portrait photography, a pretty lady, baby or even an older person. This photo session actually was organize by friend of mine, he like to be called just CHOT, thanks a lot my friend for the invitation, even thought the light and weather was not very good for a photo shoot we did go through and make the best that we can do. It is a challenge when doing a photo shoot in the outdoor simply because we can’t predict the weather.

Most of people that I’ve photograph is not a professional model, they just a friends of another friends and get recommendation  from other friends as well. We just wan’t to have fun along the way, sharing our passion and also our knowledge with a newbie. I think we learn a lot by practicing on the field rather than just read a book or some online tutorial, it is not the same, reading and doing it practically.

We are not taking picture of a building but a human who have an emotion to be taken into consideration and not to mention people along the way or along the road that just watch what we are doing, we must have a thick skin to do it in a very crowded area, we must be prepared to get on the ground, to get our hand, camera and our cloth collect dirt in order for us to get a great picture. Don’t bother with what other people are thinking, they just don’t know what we have captured with our awkward angle and positioning. Only the photographers know…

Face of New Year…

My son face when he get angry, actually he is not really that angry, I just put him on a higher ground to photograph him, he move a lot these days, very hard for me to get a decent picture of him, so I decided to put him on a higher ground, where he can’t move freely and I take a picture of him, the light was not very good, I need to be quick to photograph him or I’m not going to have a nice 1st Jan 2009 picture of him, “Nice” picture to me does not mean that I want to have a smiling face but a great expressive picture, a memorable one, something that does not stop when the moment is freeze, like this one above, the action does not stop there, I’m just capturing “in between action” if I can say that.

I will always continue doing my very best to take a picture of my son, I love to travel and love to explore new things and new frontier, and while I was busy doing my homework to determine where I should go or travel to, I will photograph my son, no matter how hard it is… 🙂

Happy New Year…

Looking forward for a brighter future ahead...

Times really flies if we enjoy our life, I guess, just few hours after I write this post, it’s 2009 already, I’m looking forward a very enjoyable year ahead especially in term of my photographic journey, I admit that since my son was born, I was not going out so much, by nature I was an outdoor kind of person but when my son was born, I’m so much happy at home, I feel so much enjoyable to take a picture of my son, almost on a daily basis, but now my son is growing up already, very hard and not so easy to photograph, and I think it is the right time for me to venture out new possibilities to explore the world with photography.

Starting Feb next year I will be climbing Mount Kinabalu for the third times, and this time, it is purely driven by photography not by desire to scale the mountain, to be on top of the summit is not my priority but to photograph it beautifully is my number one responsibility.

gregchai - Happy New Year 🙂
