Enlightenment

This is another shot of the same two monks but this time it was taken at Ta Prohm, the temple ruins in Siem Reap made famous by the shooting of Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie a few years ago (the previous shot posted on January 13th was taken at Preah Khan).

Mama, shed a tear for me

This shot was taken during my teaching photo-safari to Siem Reap late last year. We were on our way out to Tonle Sap, the largest freshwater lake in South East Asia, when we passed through this fishing village. What a great place for my type of street portraiture!

Taken with the Nikon D3 + 24-70mm/2.8 […]

Another of Farinaz

I have received comments that Farinaz Banoo Motiei reminded one of Elizabeth Taylor. I will let you be the judge. 😉

Here is another shot of her.

Up to the challenge

Coaching a newcomer to photography and photoshop (I was told 2 months into photography) was indeed a challenge. I knew I could do it and judging from the shots taken by Tharma here, I think I can say that it was a success.

When you have a great & gorgeous model, a good background and beautiful side-lighting (and of course, a patient participant), that to me is a formula for a potential good shot. Hope this one […]

Well, I have to start somewhere as these files begged to be processed. For a start here is one of Kharunisia Jazmin taken during the Manuel […]

Trapped

Another shot taken at the village that led us to Tonle Sap. This was taken on our return trip from the lake. We stopped by a village that makes hammock weaved from water hyacinth fibres. While negotiating how many we should purchase (to help the local 'economy' going) I got this boy to pose for […]

Back to the ‘future’

Yes, I have come back to reality. This is because going to Siem Reap, meeting the people there and experiencing their way of life is like going back in time. It reminded me of what it was like about half a century ago back in Malaysia. And Malaysia is still just a developing country!

Anyhow […]

Siem Reap, here I come!

One more day and I will be off to Siem Reap, Cambodia on my (very likely) last teaching photo-safari for the year. Having organised and taught in 2 previous photo-safaris this year (Myanmar – March and Bali – June), I think it is time I start something different to keep my interest going. You see, […]
