Atuk dan Cucu

My father (Wak Nang) with my little Orked. I shoot this picture in Lindau (A lake that separate Switzerland, Austria and Germany. Originally back lighted and I love this picture.

This picture I took in Colmar Tropicale, Pahang a few months back.

That’s my little Orked with her Atuk (my father) near a camping site at Munich Germany (below) and 3rd picture is my dad. Both of them really had good time throughout 20 days in Europe. My dad (Wak Nang) never been outside of the country and that was his first time stepping his feet to other countries. Seriously guys, if you still have parents no matter from whatever background, it doesnt have to be in Europe to please them well.  If you can spend only 3-4 days holiday around Malaysia that will be more than enough for them. In the end…after we grew-up, how many days that we really spend time together with them?  (stay, cook, walk, touring, dinner, lunch together). Too late for my arwah emak, but still I have a father and his new companion (mak tiri) now.

My daughter is all the reasons why I’m getting so intimate in shooting kids photos again. There are few mothers already feel tempted in hiring me for shooting their kids before. However, I preferred to sit back and enjoy shooting my own baby.  I did a few kids photography before, then I realized, I’m not into the passion of shooting kids at that time. Then I stopped. Orked changed the whole things and now, I traveled around and if I found kids, then I will shoot them (with my camera lah). I just can’t stop myself from doing that. Well again, if someone want to hire me for kids photography now…I will consider to do so with a few terms 😉 heheheh. Btw, it’s not an easy job to shoot them right hahahaha.

HOW TO TRAIN A CAMERA FRIENDLY BABY

I grew up from my baby to my childhood then to my teenage time and I collected less than 20 pictures. That’s bad right? Not everyone can afford to have that since film was expensive. It simply cost people RM12 and the development of 1 roll can go up to RM15. So, RM27 is good enough to buy food for us for 10 days (for my family – my parents and 4 brothers). Now, we’re very luck, technology make it all simple and cheap. Grab this advantage to collect more and more images of your kids from their 1 minute old.

When I showed my daughter pictures at her blog, people like to say…”Wahh, she’s so good in posing for camera”. The actual fact is, she didn’t pose for the camera, she just be like a baby and respond the eyes & expression to the camera. How do I do that?

TRAINING

It was a simple training. I just shoot her from 1 minute old non stop for most of the days and weeks, and after shooting sometime I’ll show her the pictures. We never know that she’s actually picking up that as her learning input, it just that…she can’t tell us yet. She can’t talk…but the lesson transmitted. From time to time, I can see her responded to the camera with a nice camera attitude. This is very tricky right? Start early and you’ll be happier. Imagine, you hired a child photographer for RM1-5k per session (let say), then what you’ll get is just a series of improper portrait. because your kids doesn’t know how to react in front of the camera. Last time, when I shoot kids photography, I used to spend 2-4 hours introducing myself with them, play Lego, play barbie dolls, accompany them to watch barney and spongebob squarepants and I can only shoot my first image after the lunch. Woww…it cost a loooottt of time for that. Else…the pictures will be just like another snapshots 😉

Ok everbody? Enjoice!

My dream job

Gambar Hiasan - Picture of my friend's twin from Cambridge University. I started to love shooting kids after I have 1 beautiful baby at home 😉 But...until now, I never open for any booking yet. Sorry for those who requested this service before, I just want to feel it with my baby first, then slowly shooting others hehehhe. Maybe and maybe later...

Hi buddies & fans, thanks for still clicking at my blog. Yesterday, while cruising my car to Rumah Prihatin, someone from my past history called me. I didn’t hear from him since 10 years ago. He eventually congratulated me for being successful at what I’m doing. Then I answered, No, I’m not successful yet, I’m pursuing that and still working hard for that. The more I chase the “successful”, the more it ran away from me. He then answered, no…I don’t value your success through how well you are doing now, but…how you manage to turn you passion into profession. Most important…you love your job! not like most of the people, they work to pay bills and they have no choice about that.

I feel sad about him. He have been working for more than 10 years at the place that he never like. 10 years mentally pressured by doing something that he never love to do persistently. Then I praised my god, and I realize that I’m very lucky. Lucky for being awarded with the guts to still continue doing something I love to do even though I faced twice experiences winding-up the business (tutup kedai) before I happened to venture in Photography.

Talking about successful, yes…I’m successful from his definition. I love my job very much. In the other hand, I’m always think that “Success” is just like you tide a banana 1 meter away from a hungry monkey, with one stick connecting the head of the monkey with banana (can u imagine that)…then the monkey will chase the banana. And the banana just run as fast as we run. By the time you realize that you’ve been cheated…the same time you will realize how far you’ve travelled. Can you feel that?? (Yess…good monkey)

Farah & Essam – Dewan Sivik MBPJ

Hi all, these are the among thousand of images captured during Farah and Essam wedding reception. The wedding was simple but really intimate and I found that both bride and the groom are very natural. They just being themselves on that day. It make the whole job in capturing moment a lot more easier. We didn’t go anywhere for the portraiture except exploring the back stage and the loading bay area. It was awesome!

This time, I tried a few approach in post-processing. Yet again, post-processing just take only 5% of the whole image making process. 95% is done in camera. To Farah and Essam, thanks for being just like friend there 😉 Nasib baik, kalau tak semua muka kontrol je heheeh.

Oke all…enjoice!

Meera & Sudeesh in B/W

Black and white pictures has been a timeless trend in Europe. So far, non of my clients in Europe go for the colour pictures in the option. They always want to go for b/w. Black and White picture look simple and it’s timeless….making a colour pictures to black and white is not an easy job. There are a lot of thing that you should know to make it look like a proper black and white instead of monochrome pictures. Practically, after I experienced the dark room process, get wet with the chemical and wasted a lot of papers and films, now I can say…I’m about to find the right tune for that.

Let’s talk about Meera. The time I entered the make-up room, they were few ladies in bridesmaids uniform 😉  and with her loud voice she announced to her friend…

“Girls…this is Saiful Nang…” (Meera)

“Hi everybody…” (Me)

“Hi Saiful Nang…how’s Melor?” (Them)

“Melor?” (Me)

“That’s your daughter’s name right…?” (One of them)

“Noooo….Orked lahh hahahah” (Me)

“yeahhh Orked…closed!” (One of them)

“See…I tell all my friends, officemates, facebook friends, uncle, aunties, grandmas, mothers, father in law, cousins, neighbour, postmen, bibik about you, u know..?” (Meera)

(Me : Smile…) “TQ Meera…please tell Najib next” 😉

Meera once came to my office, I would say she’s quite an avid friend about me and my life (including knowing about my wife, daughter and our activities) hehhee. She wrote me an article for The Star last year since she’s one of the reporter at The Star. It wasn’t her work but she requested that special coverage for me while she supposed to cover the story about arrestment of Md Selamat Kastari in Johor. Well…thanks again Meera and Sudesh. To Meera, please make it compulsory to all your bridesmaid to hire me for their weddings ok hehehe. Since you’re the 1st to get married in your family 3rd generation, please force them to do the same 😉
