amsyar in a dreamland

I always admire how Australian photographer can create beautiful scenery into a magical land in photograph on kids photography. From them, I tried to create our own dream world. I thought weather was the main reason their photos become amazing, but I was wrong. I found that few of their photos were taken in Bali & Thailand which was amazingly outstanding just like they taken in their hometown! And now I believe that camera handling & editing is their strongest weapon. I’ll find a way to create my own weapon. InsyaAllah..

So today I bring Amsyar to a very nice spot which is a little different from any other places I photograph him before. This is only temporary season I believe and soon to be demolish. So enjoy the photos guys.

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 8 months – Honey Bee


Yawn… I’ve been sleeping for just a while, I think. Or is it too long? Everybody else wasn’t in the hive. Where are they?


I’m hungry!!! Really I am.. I am a honey bee, I can survive even with broken wings.


What do you know? I’ll find another tree, I’ll make the wind my friend. I can sing with the birds, they’ll tell me the secret of this world.


OK Lets get something to eat. Don’t bother where everyone else has gone. My dear friend also stuck where he doesn’t wanna be. I’ll get my new friends helps me to bring him home even I have to face the queen.


I think I smell something really nice. Is it sunflower? Tulips? Durian? Ohh it’s smell soo good. I think my dear friend is near. So tonight I’ll bring my new friend Mr Giraffe to rescue him.


I can’t wait to get my hands on it… Ok my dear friend, let go back to our hive. You no longer have to stucked here forever. I have saved you and now that you’re with me.


We can make our honey! Aum nom nom nom… It smells good but taste bitter! Nothing sweet about it!


Let’s try again.. Onomnomnom…


Ahhh… I hate this flower! Yuckkk….


My little giraffe tasted better. Aha..


I have to chew his ear to get this bitter taste off my tongue.


Next time I have to wait for ma. She always cooks great puri.


So now let wait for her to come home, eat this little giraffe ears to kill some time.. Lesson learned. Wait for Ma.

A secret portraiture session without the knowledge of Ma for Arif Amsyar 8 months birthday. He can’t actually fit the honey bee costume that Faiz’s bought last few months. It means Amsyar has grown so fast!

As usual, this session only use 50mm Canon f/1.8.

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!
