I decided to go and push myself using 35mm and using pre-focusing. Obviously, I am very bad at this but if I don’t continue to practice and think like a 35mm shooter, forever the lense will be collecting dust!
Coupled with my scooter – I went around a few places in KL city to have coffee and shoot. It was great, fun indeed. Bad results but need to continue. The whole of this week – it’ll probably be lousy photos. But I will continue to shoot.
It has been quite an eventful year in 2021. Though its eventful, I felt like it was pretty bleak given what I have achieved.
Things that I thought I did well in 2020, somewhat went down the drain due to prolonged lockdown that somewhat impacted my mental health. Nevertheless, I have somewhat turned a new leaf and now looking forward for a better year in 2022.
I honestly have not charted the things that I want to achieve, but the objective and goals probably the same as last year, which is probably the same as the previous year. This is always the time of the year that I reflect against the challenges that I have faced, and see how am I going to do better.
The thing in my mind, is to take things a step at a time. Trying to achieve too many things together at the same time just not going to work. The key to achieving my goals is to be consistent. My problem has always been …. Not being consistent.
Nevertheless, its a brand new year. Time to buck up and achieve great things this year!
For whatever reason, I’ve been getting myself into taking cityscapes of the back alleys. The fascination over vertical lines just got to me. I do find using Leica cameras is a bit limiting. Missing my tilt-shift lens which I owned many years ago. Then again, with technology – I could easily do the perspective correction. Perhaps – I need to take out my tripod to ensure easier corrections.
One of my favourite spots to shoot. In fact – many many years ago, I spent a lot of time in this place, as part of the Kids Click program together with the forum which brought me into photography – PhotoMalaysia.com.
Photos in the gallery show some of the older photos that I took (except for the ones with me) of the activities that we did as part of the program. It was rather successful and I bet everybody enjoyed their time during the session.
Another shot from my night shoot. The boss and the worker. Despite the chap looking a bit angry (or surprised) – he was actually very friendly. I stopped by for a few minutes to chat with him and he was saying about the restaurant getting back to the groove after reopening of economy,
