Perjalanan yang tidak mudah


Rupanya dah 8 tahun umurnya sejak pertama kali saya dibayar untuk fotografi. Ia satu perjalanan yang panjang dan mengasyikkan. Banyak yang saya pelajari. Dari seorang jurugambar sambilan sehingga kini menjadi sebuah kumpulan syarikat yang sangat membanggakan saya. Saya rasa ia satu kesan dari sokongan anda semua dari dulu hingga sekarang. Saya bukannya orang kaya, saya datang dari keluarga yang miskin. Mungkin itu salah satu sebab saya mewarisi kecekalan dengan apa yang telah berlaku sepanjang 8 tahun ini.

InsyaAllah, perjuangan masih awal untuk dihentikan.

Bookmark lah blog ni ye 😉

I will blog again…(dah banyak kali cakap)

Dah lamapun tak jengah blog ni. Sayang betul, dah lama dan dah bersawang. Dulu selalu cerita dan update tentang fotografi dan motivasi. Saya rasa sekarang saya sudah semakin banyak perkara nak bercerita. Banyak pengalaman dan ilmu yang perlu dicurah dan biarkan ia mengalir. Cerita yang baru dan lama sampai nak basi pun berlambak dalam stok dan masih tidak diceritakan. Tindakan untuk back-off sedikit dan malas nak glemer-glemer sangat rasanya dah berjaya buat orang relaks. Sekarang masa untuk menulis semula. Harapnya anda semua masih belum boring lagi dengar penulisan saya. Pastinya di fb dan blog tidak sama. Amacam? Nak tak?

A wedding by X100


After a month of having my lovely X100 compact Point & Shoot camera, I started now to put it into wedding. This camera come with a single range lens which equivalent to 35mm. My best range as what your eyes see is pretty much the same range. Because of that, I have to really observe my framing and there are no more short-cut by using zoom function. I hope I can bring more and more photos from X100.

Enjoice!

Zulhelmy Zakawan & Dayang Rosli






CLICK HERE TO WATCH THEIR PHOTO SLIDESHOW

Zul and Dayang pulak. 1 fact that a lot of people may not know, the groom (Zul) once shoot a wedding under CandidSyndrome. He’s an independent business owner and used to be my neighbor in Puchong as well as junior in MMU. Working with another camera freak sometime become a big advantage but sometime…u feel pressured to perform. Zul aka Zuuru in my eyes can be categorized as a fine art photographer & commercial photographer. Tu yg agak tertekan kot nanti time2 ambik gambar dia boleh komen angle kita pulak hahhaha…luckly not lah. First jumpa Dayang masa my raya open house last year. 1 thing for sure…if I’m the one that marry Dayang, now I already have a Canon 40D on the hantaran tray…WOW! I thought Zul is using 1d Mk III…but now it have been replaced nicely by 40D. Just sell your 1d Mk III to me for 1,000 bucks ok?? DEAL!!

Watch the slideshow by clicking the link above. I would say, their wedding are fantastic! It was a Fairy God Mother Tales wedding. To those in the last pictures (yang anak2 dara tu), now u know who to call if u want to get married right?? hahaha

FAKTA 08.08.08

  1. Some booking made 2 years in advance and latest was almost a year.
  2. We have to refuse 237 couples requested for that date but…nothing much we can do if those dates are already taken.
  3. This is the most popular date throughout my entire career as a wedding photographer
  4. Moral of The story : Book early 😉

The Firm – THe Reality TV Show by NTV 7 in CandidSyndrome

The Firm’s crew (NTV7) with me at CandidSyndrome

.

(I can’t comment more, until all the series appear on TV…produce tak bagi disclose the informations) This time around she have been tasked to seek for some sponsorship for Rumah Hope Celebrity futsal in Klang (today – Friday afternoon). CS will be there as well and thanks Ain for having CandidSyndrome in mind.

More things to be updated soon. For the past 3 days, this blog wasn’t accessible due to some threat from outside that broke our server firewall. No worries…we have all things back-up in another server. Early this year we invested to our own server to accommodate our increasing bandwidth for our photoskool and CS photographers’ galleries and blogs. Now it’s on again!

Stay tuned! There’ll be updates about our recent PHOTOCAMP 2008!!

FOTOTIPS NO.7

Imaginasi – Setiap fotografer mesti berimaginasi sebelum mereka pergi meninggalkan rumah ke tempat tugasan. Dan pastikan balik dgn gambar yang anda angan2kan itu. Dalam kes saya…saya akan dapatkan gambar idaman saya sebelum saya balik rumah. Barulah balik dengan senyuman.

ENJOICE!

Model Shoot

Yesterday, I did something I’m not that expert in. I’m not specialise in model or studio photoshoot unless the whiteroom concept. I’m nobody to compare with Bustamam Mokhtar in model & studio…but I’m really proud to be known as a WEDDING photographer. But yesterday, I did a favour to a magazine publisher to shoot this Colombian model. Make-up by deksya, wardrobe by Jovian Mandagie and photography by Saiful Nang & Mukhriz Latif. It was a full experimentation based on my eyes (asal sedap mata memandang…all the rules has been broken ahhaha). Wait for the picture soon 😉

Deksya told me, ehh…u dah boleh ambik gambar ni nanti boleh lah buat model shoot utk shoot2 model, celebrities, artist2 semua tu. I smiled…I told him, this is not my cup of tea hahahah (at least for now, tak tau lah in the future kot2 jatuh minat ambik gambar studio & model mana tahu).

Enjoice!

Lama dah orang main facebook ni. Orang pertama yang suruh bukak facebook ni ialah my mother in-law. Pasal dia nak ikut my dad-in-law kerja di luar negara, jadi the best way to share pictures ialah melalui facebook. Tapi dah dekat 1 tahun my facebook ni sunyi sepi jer, setakat nak tunggu sapa2 terjumpa untuk add. Baru2 ni baru sempat explore sikit2…menarik jugak. Cuma tak sempat nak main game macam2 hehehhe. Ok guys, add me if u like it 😉

Kad ni diberi oleh seorang client CS yang datang petang tadi. Dia tau CS mUCHHHH EARLIERR than KS (Kandid Sindrom). Jadi bila jurufoto ni memperkenalkan dirinya dari Kandid Sindrom (bunyi bila disebut mmg sama dgn candidsyndrome) jadi beliau pun minta lah business card dia. Tapi takpa lah…kita sama2 cari makan, harap KS juga boleh berjaya dengan identiti mereka sendiri nanti. Untuk yang berada di Langkawi, CS is CandidSyndrome ek, bukan Kandid Sindrom.

Perasmian LAFA Pixellutions – Batu Pahat

Photography by Udey Ismail

Lam (left) and her partner Faiz (not in picture) was one of CS customers before. Both of them turned to love photography after that. Sekarang…dua2 dah buka sebuah studio fotografi yang khusus untuk wedding di Batu Pahat. Surprisingly, last 2 weeks, Lam told me that she and Faiz would like to invite me to the opening ceremony. I said, yes I will come. Then Lam asked my birthday, tanyalah jugak kenapa? She said…nak dapatkan tarikh yang baik untuk launching tu based from Chinese Horoscope. Rupa-rupanya saya ni “Young Horse” rupanya hehehhe (in this case…Obese horse lah). Lagi surprise…both of them nak I yang cut the ribbon. Mula2 plan lagi gila…si Lam ni siap nak Dong Che Dong Che (Tarian Singa) dan bakar2 mercun lagi…malangnya, buat hari Isnin (ada Ong lah ikut my horoscope) so…budak2 yang nak jadi singa tu semuanya sekolah hari ni.

Masa ucapan perasmian, benda pertama saya cakap…”SAYA BUKAN YB” untuk kawasan ini atau kawasan2 lain dan bukan pada hari ini dan bukan pada masa akan datang. Saya Saiful Nang, Jurugambar Perkahwinan dari KL (Just in-case sebahagian guest tu wonder who am I standing in front of them and give officiating speech). Malam tadi tanya Lam, what is the dress code, she said…ala biasa2 shj, ini majlis kecik2 shj. I pun tak risau lah…tak lah expect ada kompang, red carpet bagai. So…pagi tadi bangun, just grabbed my Polo T-shirt with my jeans. Casual betul…sekali rupa2nya siap bercanopy2 bagai…alaaa…rasa nak u-turn pegi shopping dulu kat Batu Pahat cari baju lain.

Gambar di studio putih LAFA. Sebelah kanan saya tu cikgu yang lari dari sekolah untuk dtg perasmian kejap. Wlaaubagaimanapun dia kena balik sekolah utk kelas Kimia dia jam 11 pagi. Kiri saya tu Doctor di HUKM dan diorang ni semua happy clients LAFA. Baju purple tu lah Lam dgn anak dia yg pakai school blouse dan emak Lam. Masa opening speech by LAFA, dia bagitau yang saya secara sedar atau tidak adalah orang yg bertanggungjawab dalam memberi inspirasi kepada mereka sehingga kepada pembukaan LAFA. Seriously saya tak tahu sampai ke tahap macam tu. Honestly…they have a strong drive to be a well-known brand in Wedding Photography.

Otw balik KL, singgah makan durian tepi jalan kat Parit Raja. Saya dgn Rosli (Videographer) dan Udey sahaja bertiga yang ke sana. To LAFA…all the best!
