hectic!

Hi everyone. Thanks for keep reading my blog. For the past few weeks was hectic! three of my great friend were married I don’t want to miss a single moment of their marriage. So I attend all three of them and photograph every wedding. First was Faiz & Lelen in Kuala Lumpur. After that Onald & Sheila in Tawau, Sabah. And finally Shahrul & Zulaikha Gelang Patah, Johor. I love every moment of their ceremony. I can see how happy they are. Oh not to forget, on December Farol & Cake! So 4 of my great friends was married!

I was very busy this month with family & friends until I didn’t realize I haven’t updated any story in here. Sorry guys! You may visit my Facebook for latest photos & story. Here are one of my favorite photos for each one of their wedding.

It has been 8 days of Ramadhan. But only 8 days, everyone looks busy preparing for Eid. Raya song played on the radio. Shopping mall already putting up sales. Tailor no longer accepted any kinds of baju raya. Pretty much as usual as before.

This year, I’m celebrating Eid with my dear wife plus our most precious Arif Amsyar. We are really grateful for this gift. Amsyar is almost 8 month old. Busy figuring out how to crawl over the house.

Over this Iftar, I was busy finishing my work. Less than 30% left in progress. Tooks about 2 weeks to finish everything.

Just before ramadhan, I went to Cameron Highlands with Faiz, Sudin, Shahrul Hanafi, Lelen & Chombie. So this is the second part of Faiz & Lelen portraiture session. I hope they can use this ‘pre-wedding’ photos for their wedding day. I will accompany Faiz for his big day next year, I hope.

At the end of the session, we were very hungry, so a friends of Chen Chen (Napi) brings us to very nice restaurant for late lunch. We had western food, beef, lamb chop and some other dishes. I was expecting it would be very good dishes, unfortunately we was wrong. Faiz can’t even finish his lamb, Chen Chen wasted almost half of his lunch, Chombie can’t even swallow her dish.

The owner of this restaurant claimed his strawberry juice is the BEST among others in Cameron Highlands, he even asked me to search on the internet. But sadly it was awful.. Everyone complaints the strawberry juice. Yucks…. Haha.. So don’t trust the owner’s review next time.

Oh ya, we will travel to Pekanbaru, Indonesia this weekend. We will be there for 4 days. If anyone by any chances will be there, let me know. I might catch few photos of you, who knows?

Till then…

One way to enhance you idea is by seeing places or things you never look at before. I always wanted not to make same pictures again. By referring to books, blogs & even billboard on the road, I will inspire to do the same thing as they did. So I always challenge my self to get the kind of photos I have never shoot before. There’s a lot of inspiration to make us do better than we have now. Not just local, we should look globally. The most admired photographers are often trying their best to make a different.

A friend asked me how to make people laugh. There are lot of ways to make people laugh. By making provocation, by making fun of them (not recommended sometimes if you don’t know them well), by asking them to do something they couldn’t and by giving them specific instruction that will tie them. At the end, you’ll see different side of them.

When you go to places you never been before, I’m pretty sure you’ll see things that make your photos different. It is not necessary to go some place far away from home. Maybe if you look at your back yard, bush next to your residence, your nearby small town, or even a coffee shop.

But I heard a method that used by a professional to train their apprentice. Print great photos from around the world that inspire you. Every morning you wake up, look at that photos. Just the photos in your collection. Do it for a month or so. You brain will memorize and you can manipulated your memory with that great photos. Good luck!

I had pleasure shooting Alin Rafei & Faiz Salleh portraiture session at The Mossy Forest, Cameron Highlands yesterday and it was a full circle moment. At the end of the night we had toasted to love, happiness and hard work. I am incredibly proud of their effort to make this session success.
