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.
