The story of “Shooting marathon & my KK trip”
Assalamualaikum all. Sorry for the gap in updating the blog. Tons of pics tapi tak sempat nak edit. Here are some updates that I managed to edit while waiting to go to the airport. Me and Hafiz Ismail from Wow Phto is going to Kota Kinabalu for 4 days. Our itinerary includes visiting our master/teacher Louis Pang, chilling at Manukan Island and at the Kinabalu highlands. And also I must eat at Tanjung Aru, The fruit juice, Mee Bakso & BBQ chicken wings are to die for!
My first indian wedding shoot. Tag with Asha. The couple is Dev & Thiru and the location is at PJ (near Assunta Hospital).
Then I shoot Kong & Ikin at Cheras. This is a CLS shot set up beside the pelamin coz at 4pm rain falls heavily. We had to postpone the post wedding shoot.
The newest wedding shot was for Ayza & Faisal at Dewan Perdana Felda last Saturday. It’s a double wedding that I shoot under Wow Photo with Hafiz Ismail.
When I finish with the editings, I’ll post some more ok.
Yesterday was a really inspiring. Me and Hafiz (with Nazir tagging along) shoots Irwin & Vanessa’s pre-wedding session. Irwin is a fellow classmate during Louis Pang’s From Ordinary to Extraordinary workshop while Vanessa was the model. They’re getting married in July. So we offered to shoot them from a malay wedding photographer’s perspective. 3 costume change, numerous make up retouch & about 7 locations. Both of us keeps challenging each other to get the money shot. Here are some that I wanna show (lightly edited with Photoshop). Btw, the fab makeup is done by Lee Kuen from http://www.bridal-glam.com
Don’t you think the sky is just gorgeous? We were blessed with perfect weather all day long.
Both Irwin & Vanessa managed to stay alert & responsive throughout the 10 hour shoot. So professional & dedicated. We love you guys!
Gorgeous paddy field. Irwin leading his lady though the golden field.
A personal time for the groom
Just 1 hour before sunset, the golden light was perfect for the moment
An unfinished house I spotted by the roadside is our second last destination.
And a love declaration to end the session 🙂
I also take video clips using D90. Will turn them into a behind the scene video later. Stay tuned ok.
Here are some other pics I took today.
The official photographers…energetic & bubbling with positive energy in the morning
Nazir is the assistant cum “local kampung boy”
Random cat photos I took just for fun
The couple belanja us to lunch and dinner. For dinner we eat seafood at Jeram.
We ate Ika Pari, Sotong tepung, Udang masak asam and Otak Otak. For drinks….Fresh watermelon juice….mmmmm delish!
Tired, sweaty and smelly. But definitely satisfied with the outcome of the shoot.
It’s 3.46am and I haven’t sleep since yesterday morning…gonna go to the airport in about 1/2 hour. Me and Hafiz gonna stay a night at the Rose Garden in the Kinabalu highlands and the back to KK for 3 days. We so deserve the holiday after a very hectic and tiring March. See you guys later!
