This is not pre-wedding portraiture session, I think. Or it is? I don’t know. I’m just capturing this two ‘sometimes’ lovely couple who join us last vacation. I’m actually terrified to upload this photos since there was so many drama bout them when we were up there, or even until now? Haha. You think they’ll delete me from speed dial? You think I care? Coz Sudin won’t do that.

I was planning to shoot them the other day. But because of the drama they played, the session cancelled. So this is the only photos I have in collection. Sad. I was hoping to get lots more out of them. No big deal… I believe there’s gonna be NEXT time.. With them.

So all this photos wonder around Boh Plantation, Sungai Palas, Cameron Highland if you ever wonder. We missed to go few other spot because of time frame. Luckily we had that much fun.

While travelling, keep remind yourself to plan well, but please not stressed with all you plans. At least you have guidance. Try to travel light. Only bring enough shirts, less camera accessories and anything else that keep you bags weight like going to war. I brought my 17-40mm, 135mm, 50mm & speed light. I NEVER fire a single flash up there. I snap like 7 photos with 17-40 and only couple of portraits using 135. Most of the time I only use my most precious 50mm f/1.8 to cover 97% of my photo session. So I’ve already wasted few KG of my bag for that rarely used lenses. So on our next travel, I will try to bring lesser accessories than last time.

Till then, keep browsing.

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.

cameron highlands trip day 2

The second day. I’m still occupying my 50mm 1.8 lens all this while. Saw those Philippines photographers group brings their most expensive telephoto lenses. I believe they captured more exciting photos there. I think I should change wide angle lens as well, but it just not the right spot and view. My ‘less-expensive-not-luxury-lens’ was so useful after all. Although in some cases I have to merge photos for great panoramic scene, I prefer that way.

Pay RM5 for Butterfly farm at Brincang. Amsyar almost ate of of them! We were riding up to Mount Brincang to go to The Mossy Forest. It was 7KM drive up on the mountain. So challenging for a sedan like mine to get up there. With so much rocky road, it took about 1/2hrs to get there. The weather was great up there. We have to hike the path up upon mossy forest where you can see clouds passing by you. Amazing…

But we couldn’t spent more time up there since Amsyar already getting mad. So we left mossy forest around 12+ and go to Boh plantation. Unfortunately Amsyar already fall asleep while we arrived. So no photos of him at the tea plantation.

We go down to Big Red Strawberry park for late lunch. We had delightful vacation at Cameron Highlands. Will be coming back in two weeks for group vacation with The Exceeded!

Boh Tea Plantation, Cameron Highlands in my perspective. Only with Canon 50mm f1.8.

I was planning for sunrise photoshoot this morning. Unfortunately the mist is to heavy for the sun to come out. So I just drove to Gunung Brincang alone to capture the landscape. Just for 30 minutes, suddenly it started raining. So thats it.
