A much needed break

It has been a long while since I went for a dip in a river...

...so off I went to Hutan Lipur Sungai Tua- cough, cold and all :P

Thank you very much for taking me along, Azman!

Tagging along to d'Reyanz Colour Group

Night photo shoot!

Boss Redza (white) and ... Hadi's (red) job. Lady in orange is Nana, ... Hadi's backup. Azraf (purple) and I were there to study.

All photos here have been curved up. Despite shooting with low shutter (10 and below) and high ISO (1000 and above), they still turned up darker than I'd like.

The lens could be a factor. It's been a while since I used my kit so it took some time to adjust.

The kit lens only allowed for the lowest aperture to be between f 3.5 to 5.6, depending on focal length. I had to further slow the shutter speed to get more light in.

The result was that I had more blurry photos than sharp, viable ones.

I accepted the result of this experimentation since I used natural light for most of it. I hated the ones I used flash on. I still haven't figured how to use the bounce card to my advantage :(

But what was weird was that even some of the ones using flash was blurry. Still a long way away from mastering my kit lens and flash.

At least a few turned out well :P

Loved this tag session. Really learned a lot! Thanks to Boss and the gang!

We don't say goodbye...

...we say good journey!

Tamtam,

Ma, Pa and I sincerely wish you a really good journey as well as a happy, free and long life there in Sungai Pinang.

I know that the girls are not much into cats but I trust that their mom, dear cousin Wati, will be able to truly care for you.

You've been with us since you were just a scrawny patch of black fur with tightly closed eyes so you can imagine how very hard it was for us to leave you behind.

Unlike the 'other kid', you fill us with much love and joy. Ma even dreamt of you for a few days after sending you off. We miss you THAT much! ~sigh*

One fine day, we hope to drop by and see how you're doing ;)
Until then, be a good boy!

Love,

Bro Ri
