It seems that street art is the in thing nowadays in Penang thanks to the effort by none other than Ernest Zacharevich. This new painting which is called "Children on the Swing" was done by our local hero Louis Gan. I must admit that I'm truly impress with this one. Like the saying goes, "Good Artists Borrow, Great Artists Steal".
The location of the painting is at Step by Step Lane which never existed officially (I honestly never heard of the lane before prior to this). Anyway, my sister was all to happy to be a volunteer model.
I don't normally post any food pictures although I'm a food lover myself but here goes my first try. White balance is extremely important in food photography as you don't want your meal to look untastefully blue or yellow. Also, make sure you have sufficient lighting for the food especially diffused light. A seating beside the window is highly recommended. :)
Anyway, this was taken at Café 55, Atelier at Steward Street, Penang. It tasted awesome if you are wondering.
Just got myself a sparkling new canon 85/1.8. The focal reach with aps-c is just borderline voyeurism for me.
One of my recent outing was involving shooting street at Air Itam morning market. This place is notoriously know for its hectic jam during the morning as all of the hawker and vendors set up stalls beside the main road.
The story goes like this, I was wondering around Air Itam market doing some street shooting as usual as this guy came up to me praising the way I'm shooting. (well, thats a first) while I'm still recovering from shell-shocked, he then process to ask me if I'm able to take a portrait of him. (with pleasure)
His expression and his hand gesture, makes me wonder what in his mind? praying for forgiveness? praying for peace? ...
On the other hand, maybe I should start doing 100 strangers project... soon.
