Splashed

Here is another shot I took of the dancers at the Klungkung waterfall. We have seen many subjects taken at this waterfall including pre-wedding shots (in fact I have one of these too – more of that later) but there are very few of Balinese dancers let along of them being splashed with water.

I am back!

What a Bali photo-safari! It was great fun as expected. It was action from the word go. From what I saw from the sample shots taken by the participants I know I will be seeing some great shots from them soon. Personally I think I have some great shots too. I won't be doing much […]

One of the few shots I have from the Nikon D3X

I don't have many from this incredible camera. Thanks to Nikon Malaysia, I was given a loaned unit to give it a spin during one of my Bali photo-safaris. Definitely a different animal, in a good sense, from the Nikon D3. The details you get from this camera is gorgeous!

Diffuse the light

This is one of the many tricks I would use in available light photography especially when lighting is getting too harsh. This shot was taken in late morning and shows how expertly Kharu used the shawl to help diffuse the light.

Taken with Nikon D2x + Nikon 70-200mm VR1 @ f/3.2 1/400s ISO400.

I love the lighting of this photo

 

Trying to get the Hmong people of Sapa to pose for a photo  during my trip there was usually declined unless you buy something from them. This lady was an exception.

I simply love the lighting of this photo. Taken with Nikon D3 + Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 Aperture Priority @ f/3.2 1/640s ISO400.
