Melaka with Heroes

…and here we are again. Melaka. When I came back from Tioman last week, I have an unpleasant surprise new to hear, my brother had a complication while having his bypass heart surgery at IJN in critical conditions. I was on my way to Melaka at that moment for another portraiture with all my great friends. I decided to go back home and pack, rush to KL. We spent few days in KL giving moral support to my brother’s family, which I believe has been through so much for the rest of the months. He has to stay in ICU unit for few more days until the entire supporting device taken off.

So we went back home after pretty sure he is in stable condition. On our back, we visited Melaka for few hours. It was quite late when we arrived. Amsyar enjoy Cendol Clock Tower so much. Adik Kimi had much fun running here and there. I have thousands of unprocessed raw photos of our travel but haven’t gotten the right time to share. So this is just one of dozens other trip I share. Hope you guys don’t get bored of what I share. 🙂

amsyar 1st birthday

Dear Amsyar,

Happy birthday, our little man. I can’t believe a year has flown by already. One year ago, I was outside the labor room waiting for you to coming out. I was excited to have you in my life, but I can honestly say I had no idea how much joy you would bring because I had no idea this much joy even existed. Since you’ve entered our life, we have experienced every emotion on a whole other level. You’ve brought so much laughter and happiness into this home and our big family. Thank you for giving us the best year of our life so far.

Love,

Abah & Mama

Amsyar 1st Birthday

So this is how 1 year boy looks like. Energetic! He only sleep for 2 hours yesterday, so excited to celebrate his birthday. Even after his celebration, Amsyar doesn’t even tired at all. He spends few more hours unboxing presents he get from our dear friends. Only after 10pm, when we drove out to get dinner, he fall asleep.

Thanks everyone for coming to our celebration, and not to forget the presents! Happy birthday Amsyar!

amsyar is 1!!

Arif Amsyar 1 Years Old

A year ago, at this very moment, I was in front of labor room waiting for my precious one to come out and see the world. 1.50am on 17th of December 2010, Arif Amsyar was born. He brings joy to me and my wife. And so do everyone around us. Alhamdulillah…

I am very thankful for everyone who always follow how Amsyar’s doing. Just few hours ago, I receive an email from my blog reader who hide his/her identity asking me to beware while bringing Amsyar to the place we shoot. This kind person notice from one of the photo, Amsyar was chewing a poisonous flowers called Yellow Jessamine. I was terribly shock. I am so thankful someone notice and even remind me not to do that again.

We live in a ‘kampung’, I was grown up in a place where snakes can be easily seen crawling near our place. So I care less about the surrounding and this kind of place. I am not aware of any kind of poisonous flowers or herbs tree that shouldn’t be near my kids. So thanks a lot to the kind person who emailed me earlier.

amsyar in wonderland

What I wrote earlier is right, golden hour doesn’t come often these days. It was a very sunny day today, but when we started the picnic, clouds suddenly came out, hiding that pretty sunshine away from us..

I bring Amsyar & Akmal (oh not to forget Mr. Rabbit) to the field early at 5pm but I start shooting around 6.15pm. It was located 15 mins drive from our place. The title Amsyar in wonderland because of that Mr. Rabbit we bring. As usual, I use my most precious 50mm f/1.8 Canon for this session. The cheapest prime lens on the market that gives me most precious images. Amsyar in excellent mood, oh actually he already messed up my day before we went out. Now I understand an old man once told me kids this age is challenging to raise.

Actually I was hoping to go to the big tree in the field, unfortunately there was electrical fence all over the place to prevent those cow running out of track. So we have to change our photo shoot location to other field. We had been shooting for about half an hour before the sun came out. Oh we just have another few more minutes before the sun set. But it was lovely moment.. Just for a few minutes. I am really grateful. Alhamdulillah…

We pack up at 7.10pm since the was too dark already. So this is the photos I’ve selected out of 500+. Now I know hot hard it is to shoot kids portraiture.

amsyar 7 month

Golden hour doesn’t come often these days. So if by any chances you found great sunset near your place, don’t miss it. Grab your camera, bring anyone you like, capture the moment. As for me, I get the chances to shoot my little boy 7th month anniversary today. It was like 30minutes of great yellowish sunset just near my place. Kids photography needs great timing.

Golden hour often started at 6.30pm, I started the photoshoot at 6.44pm after fetching my dear Akmal from work. A little to late. Amsyar was in great mood while we started. Remember I wrote earlier to look for different place near you place earlier? So this is just around 500m from my house. It’s look like other bush you passing by every day. But if we can manipulate the surrounding, we can make good photos. I only attached my all time favorite 50mm f/1.8 lens to my camera as usual. Cheap lenses doesn’t mean cheap quality photos. Remember that. This less than 300 bucks lens always pay me great memories.

I learned a lot from my great inspiration, Wazari Wazir. Although I haven’t meet him in person, he gave such great knowledge in his blog. If you new to photography, I suggest you study all his articles. So much you can learn, yet he give it for free. I shoot with 50mm f/1.8 at most of the time, Wazari can teach you how to get sharp images with 50mm lens. I hope you can learn something from there.

Till then, good luck!
