Biwako, Japan

I lied on the grass, using my body to stabilize my camera and square ND filters (not screwed on), no tripod… as I was touring in Japan with me 20-inch singlespeed folding bike with fully loaded panniers. Not to forget it was about 15-18 degrees Celsius near sunset. The last time I took landscape photography seriously was probably 20 years ago.

One of my last student I taught in my private classes is into shooting landscapes. She sort of made me think about getting back to shooting nature again. It’s always a refreshing experience to breathe in the fresh air in nature, indulging in the masterpieces God has created. No two leaves are the same. So are humans.

 

Bukit Tinggi Malaysia – 12 Jul 2009

A passing moment of clouds travelling past. This happened just for a few seconds before the light is all flat.

Shot of the day – 12 Jul 2009, with my new toy (all my buddies know what it is). Good photographs depend on great imagination NOT gear. (Though the Olympus E-P1 grainy film art filter really helps this time… haha…) The best camera is the one in your hands.¬† Let’s all focus on expressing our IMAGINATION!
