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!
