Raudha & Hafiz – Kota Tinggi Wedding Photographer

I’m here to share with you, a really special day that I got to step into, dips in, and preserve eternally in images. And more significantly, share about just how beautiful these two souls are. People think I say this about every couple, but these two have seriously left a footprint on my heart. They inspire me with their love story that I heard from their family and how their mother make them fall in love, they inspire me with their incredible humbleness, and just by witnessing their lives, family and friends for a day I have been impressed by their honest love and kindness towards those around them.

Raudha & Hafiz. What can I say? I can’t thank you enough for trusting me to tell the story of your big day. I hope these photos do some sort of justice and treasure a small place in your heart to treasure for the rest of your days. This ceremony held in a very calm little town, Felda Linggiu, Kota Tinggi. My very first client came from here as well. I’ve been shooting here for five time including this one. I found a very unique landscape area for an outdoor portraiture around this area. We spent about two hours wandering & having fun after the rain. It was so intimate looking how closed Raudha & Hafiz are.

Thank you for letting us be a part of something so special between you both. You two are the luckiest, to have found each other.

Aishah & Roy – Batu Pahat Wedding Photographer

Happy hump day everyone! I’m leaving you with a sweet little solemnisation session shot, at one of the prettiest little hall I’ve had the pleasure of visiting, with it’s close relative, great food, and everything. All hidden in between the Kampung Kenangan Dato Onn, Batu Pahat so that it’s still nothing but peaceful and serene.

So while I adored shooting their beautiful ceremony, their wedding was an even more special affair of the heart, as it finally put a close to the cords of serendipity, timing, and friendship that intertwined throughout their years love story, and it began a new chapter full of hope, adoration, love, and an even more pronounced praise to God. I’ve known Aishah & Roy from her brother, Sudin who is my travel companion most every destination I been to before. Sudin’s little sister even more sweeter in real life while Roy is steady-happy-all-the-way-of-his-life kinda guy. That what interest me more to document their big day.

There’s just something enchanted about little intimate weddings that just capture my heart. I know weddings and marriage celebrations come in all forms, sizes, and types, but it’s the small ones that involve just the closest of relative and friends that really give way to what makes weddings beautiful – love, joy, intimacy, familiarity, and companionship. Those are the things that truly make photos beautiful and sparkle. Will post another updates on their wedding day later. Have a good day!

Photography is one of those things that seems like everyone dabbles a bit in and quite a few people nowadays own very high quality digital cameras. In an attempt to save money, there is a new trend among brides of having a friend or family member take their wedding photos. While this may initially sound like a good idea, investing in an experienced wedding photographer should be one of your top priorities.

Your wedding is a once in a lifetime occasion. There are no ‘do-overs’, so you need a professional that you can trust. So much time is invested in finding the venue, choosing the perfect flowers and of course making sure your cake is as lovely as it is tasty. After your wedding is finished and you leave your venue, the flowers have wilted and all that yummy wedding cake has been eaten … how will you remember these things? If you’ve taken the time and money to invest in the perfect wedding photographer, you can rest assured. High quality, bright, beautiful wedding photos will be there to help you remember your day! You’ll have photos of your groom tearing up as he sees you walking down the aisle, a vision, in the perfect dress. You can look back upon how happy your guests were chatting, celebrating your day. Every detail from your shoes, his tux, THE dress and even the jewelry you wore will be well documented so that someday you can show your children.

What if, for arguments sake, you decided to forgo hiring a professional wedding photographer and hired a friend of the family to take your photos. He or she owns a digital camera, loves photography and has even taken photos of a few newborns that look great! Wedding photography cannot be THAT much different, right? Wrong. In wedding photography you generally get what you pay for. Yes, there is a chance that you may love the photos of a family friend, but is saving a few dollars on wedding photography worth the risk that you won’t? Wouldn’t you much rather adjust your budget in other details? Great wedding photography is so much more than just owning a high quality camera. Lenses, flashes, backup equipment in case something goes wrong, not to mention the EXPERIENCE of knowing what to shoot when and how are just a few of the important things that a professional will bring to the table. You wouldn’t let your sister’s boyfriend take your tonsils out even though he loves watching E.R., wanted to go to medical school and knows quite a few people who have done it, would you? Just like anything else in life some things are much too precious to trust to anyone but a professional.

Finding the perfect photographer is the best gift you can give each other on the big day. It sounds cheesy but we tell our clients all the time that wedding photos are your first family heirloom. Make sure when you are making the important decision on whether or not to go with a pro that you consider what you are really paying for … memories.

One of my blog follower asked me “White balance apa yang terbaik untuk gambar dalam rumah”. To tell you the truth, I don’t know. Frustrating isn’t it?

Soalan tu terlalu general. To be precise, setiap rumah menggunakan lampu yang berlainan. Tak mungkin dapat tetapan white balance yang sama pada setiap gambar. Jadi cara penyelesaiannya; datang awal. Cari white balance paling sesuai. Gunakan white balance preset dahulu. Tengok lampu rumah, set pada white balance kamera ikut jenis lampu. Kalau tak dapat jugak putih yang sebenar, gunakan Kelvin. Kebanyakkan camera DSLR Canon ada custom setting. Fungsinya untuk menyimpan tetapan kamera untuk keadaan yang berbeza. Sebagai contoh, C1 untuk indoor; white balance Kelvin 4800, Standard mode, ISO2000, EV -1. C2 untuk berarak; white balance Kelvin 5300, ISO100, EV -1. Jadi bila kita sampai awal, set setting macam ni sebagai contoh. Masa berarak gunakan C2. Masuk je rumah terus tukar C1. Jadi tak perlu ubah setting banyak lagi. Mudahkan?

Semua DSLR ada short cut button. Jadi gunakan semaksimanya yang mungkin. Bila kita mahir dengan penggunaan kamera, maka lebih mudah nak kawal & lebih cepat kerja kita. Ingat, jangan salahkan kamera. Kita yang kawal kamera tu. Semua fungsi tersedia untuk kita manipulasi mengikut kehendak mata.

Kalau di fikirkan, Ansel Adams guna kamera apa pun hampir semua peminat dia tak tahu. Yang semua orang tahu dia hasilkan karya seni hanya dengan kamera film yang teramat kuno. Jadi kita ni di era digital sepatutnya lebih menghargai apa jua kamera yang kita ada. Maksimakan penggunaanya.

One, Two, Three Strikes You’re Out

I couldn’t resist a quick post. I just came back from shooting him and quickly upload this photos. So rather than just shooting portraits, I was interested on doing it different way each time. Daddy’s All Star today wear baseball shirt. Oh great, baby portraiture photoshoot baseball theme. So I bring him to the same place I shoot him with mommy Akmal summer theme earlier, few meters from our place. I was hoping for great sunset again, but still no luck for today…

I heard the sun were really close to earth in 4 days starting from yesterday. The sun was so huge yesterday. Let’s hope we’ll get the chances tomorrow. I’m dying to get the golden hour again. If you notice, in two weeks times the weather was very hot. Weather forecast said temperature reached 33 degree in afternoon. No wonder Amsyar melalak all day.

I couldn’t find my old baseball cap & baseball bat. The only this I can bring is the ball, which I think, older than me. My sister used to play soft ball while at secondary school. Mak said this ball belong to her. I saw her photos playing soft ball nominated third place while in 1986 if I’m not mistaken, I was 2 years old by that time.

Shooting 7 month baby was very challenging. You never know what happen next. I give him a ball, he try to chew it as he can swallow. The ball was 3/4 his head. So I only use Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens as usual to shoot his portraits. Glimpses into childhood playground is what dreams are made of….

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!

alin + faiz – day 1 { cameron highlands }

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!

eddie + fiza { skudai, johor bahru }

Sejak kebelakangan ni pengantin-pengantin dari Johor Bahru mula mengenali Mohd Razali / Foto by Razali. Dari daerah lain macam Mersing, Endau, Muar pun dah mula kenal. Rezeki. Ada jugak yang tanya, “abang shoot dalam Johor je ke?”. Jadi kalau yang rajin baca, bukan sekadar menilai gambar aku, mesti perasan aku travel ke serata Malaysia. Kedah, Pahang, Terengganu, Kelantan, Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Selangor, bukan sekadar Johor semata. Sebenarnya orang tempatan pun tak kenal sapa Mohd Razali. Sebabnya, aku tak attached dengan mana-mana andaman. Dari situ aku cuba buat kelainan setiap kali attend majlis. Kalau boleh tak nak buat style yang sama setiap kali. Tapi signature move seseorang photographer tetap tak boleh lari.

Pulak tu bila kerap sangat pergi tempat yang sama. Nusajaya. Dah lebih 5 kali rasanya aku shoot di sini. Memang luas kawasan ni. Tapi bila kerap sangat pun jadi blur jugak. Cuma tak mungkin sama dengan sebelum-sebelumnya.

Plan bulan 7 tergendala. Dem.. Aku dah lock 1 bulan semata-mata untuk projek ni, tapi 2 minggu sebelum fly, baru dapat berita projek ni cancel. Oh man. 1 bulan tau. Bukan seminggu dua aku lock tarikh tu. Aku dah lock tarikh tu 3 bulan lepas lagi. Aku terpaksa tolak banyak job, switch dengan photographer lain, mintak maaf dengan pengantin… Tapi bila dah jadi macam ni, bengang jugak. Bukan kuasa aku.

Plan B. Bulan 7 aku nak cuba buat projek lain. Mungkin memperkasakan portraiture. Mungkin akan jalan2 untuk buat journal. Masuk kelas. Oh aku tak plan dengan baik lagi. July & August. Raya baru mula kerja seperti biasa.

izat & azah { batu pahat }

Sepanjang minggu ni cuaca tak menentu. Ada hari hujan tak berhenti, ada hari panas macam dekat gurun. Global Warming. Beberapa minggu lepas masa buat post wedding kat Kelab Golf Batu Pahat, jerebu. Tapi masih ada matahari. Tapi semalam tunggu2 tak keluar mataharinya. Jadi tak dapat la nak buat back light dengan haze pagi. Azah & Izat datang dari Kelapa Sawit, Kulai pagi tu untuk portraiture session. Aku tak dapat cover majlis diorang bulan 7 ni atas sebab tugasan lain. Jadi Farol yang akan cover.

Malam tadi pegi Batu Pahat lagi dengan Farol, tengok wayang. Setelah 6 bulan tak tengok wayang sejar Amsyar lahir. Baru malam tadi pegi tu pun sebab Faiz & Sudin ajak. KL Gangster. Cerita melayu beb. Tengok dengan gangster2 Labis pulak tu Ayom & Amin. Keluar2 panggung je masing-masing dah nak jadi gangster pulak. Paling tidak pun jadi Zizan. Walaupun secara jujurnya aku tak pernah suka cerita2 Shamsul Yusof ni, tapi malam tadi aku terhibur jugak la. Mungkin kali ni filem dia menjadi. Boleh buat aku gelak, boleh buat aku geram. Betul. Alah seminggu dua lagi dah keluar Astro First. So tengok & kritik sendiri.
