The Story of "Board game mania & Shah Alam Teh Tarik Session"

The Cranium board and the question cards

The characters

When you answer wrongly

When you don't know the answer

Puppet master Shahrul & puppet Mazleen doing the Aerobics thang

Sometimes you have to draw (with eyes wide shut)

Guess what is the action?

Pita bread action

One minutes per question

Enjoy when you get it right

Cranium mania sweeps the Shah Alam gang. Starting from the first party during the new year day. The second one was held at Shahrul's residence, Players are: Shahrul, Sue, Wafi, Zul (2 of the most competitive ones), Amru, Farizhilmi, Bokhari, Mazleen, Lukman, Mazlan, Diana, Iskandar, Jiebb, Kak Su & baby Benjy.

As we all dah agak tahu how to play, 2 games were played at around 1 1/2 hours each. It was a blast. Although my team nearly win it the second game...We had many memorable quotes and actions from the night.

For those yang tak tahu what is Cranium... "Cranium is a party board game based on Ludo. Whit Alexander and Richard Tait created Cranium in 1992 after Richard spent a weekend playing games with another family and recognized the need for a game involving a variety of skills. He left his job at Microsoft, convincing friend and co-worker Whit Alexander to join him in the creation of Cranium. Cranium is manufactured by Hasbro subsidiary Cranium, Inc. Cranium is billed as "The Game for Your Whole Brain." Unlike many other party games, Cranium includes a wide variety of activities." Quoted from

The Story of "Aira & Aziz - Majlis Pernikahan"

Assalamualaikum semua. On Saturday I'm very lucky to be given the job of capturing Aira &Aziz's big day. The majlis was held at TTDI's Masjid At-Taqwa. A simple affair but a very emotional. Since a picture tells a thousand words, feel free to browse through the whole set here.

For those getting married/engaged, my services for 2009 will be more towards photojournalistic style. That means I go with the flow, continuously shooting everything (candid moments) and less posed pictures. I shoot from 800-1200 pictures per event. And you may get around 50% to 75% of those pictures. That alone is worth my rate because the pictures will last longer than any of the pelamin, food, dress, flowers and hantaran of your big day.

As for pictures, I strive to get more artistic & candid moments during an event. My aim is to reduce post production and concentrate more on getting the effect that I want during the shoot. natural looking pics do look better than over processed pics. And they will last longer after the current trends in editing had passed.

Happy Chinese New Year and have a nice holiday everyone!

The Story of "Updates January"

Assalamualaikum semua. Today takde gambar baru nak update just wanna write something about my work.

Sedar tak sedar dah hampir habis bulan satu 2009. Azam tahun baru...masih banyak yg belum start buat. Yang bagusnya tahun ni lagi baik dari tahun lepas in terms of kerja-kerja fotografi. January last year saya baru berhenti kerja...dan buat fotografi secara full time. This year I think I'm wiser, better in shooting pictures dan more stable (financially and also the company itself).Pagi tadi baru je shooting majlis nikah pasangan Aira & Aziz di Masjid At-Taqwa TTDI. I've prepared 2 new lenses for the shooting session. Baru beli Sigma 30mm f1.4 semalam and pinjam Nikkor 85mm f1.8 from Jidin.

Both lenses are definitely very sharp and gives beautiful bokeh effect (that blur background yg membezakan subjek and background). Getting inspiration from Overseas photographers..inilah hasilnya. Kebanyakan mereka invest on expensive but quality lenses. Shot about 1200 pics using my 2 D80's. Maybe tomorrow I'll edit some and upload them at EnchantedFOREST's flickr page.

Wedding jobs for 2009 dah banyak confirmed bookings (yang paling padat in March & July). Alhamdulillah something different from past years. To those who are getting married this year (or next year).don't hesitate untuk call Amru at 013-3893113 for an hour of free consultation at our enchantedSTUDIO in Section 9, Shah Alam. Lagi elok kalau book awal. Because when you know your photographer early and follow his/her works by the time your wedding, more or less dah boleh expect apa yg akan dapat.

I'm very lucky to get such cool couples so far. From Kedah to Terengganu, Melaka, Penang, Pahang, Selangor & KL. Kalau dapat international wedding pun best! I'll just keep my fingers crossed lah..hehehe. Tapi kalau camtu kena lah charge in USD..

Continuous education is very important. Last year I've been to courses such as Photoshop Editing (by Kukubesi), Ranismata Outdoor Potraiture (by Kukubesi & didiz Fotokahwin) & Basic Studio Lighting (by Ted Adnan). This year I planning on going to a course by Louis Pang (one of Malaysia's most expensive wedding photographer). It's time I go out of my comfort zone and start experimenting.

One of my wish for 2009 is to move up from my D90 to a more pro D700 (or D3 if I got the money lah..). But estimating that I need around RM15K just for 2 bodies of D700...nampak gaya kena tunggu sikit lah...Lenspun agak expensive but have high resale value. If all goes well by second half of 2009 dapat lah merasa Full Frame body. Several of my photographer friends pun dah kena racun dengan D700 ni.

My daily life so far lebih banyak duduk di studio (buat kerja editing, layan clients, shoot studio sessions) everyday except Rabu. Which is my movie day. On weekends yang ada shoot or personal appointments I will be at the studio lah. Just call me if ada yang nak datang. Our door is always open.

More later. Wassalam
