I got a call late night on the 24th from Andytan that they were having an early morning shoot at Penang hill around 6:15am. He asked he I wanted to join. I said yes as I was bored out of my mind that day.
That day was very hazy as usual since the rainy season seemed to have passed and so the haze came back. I don’t know which is worse, non-stop raining or endless haze.
The picture you see here was taken at the top, and I had used only a nikkor 50mm f/1.8. Tip here, while I don’t like the haze but I decided to use it to my advantage by making it look like it was morning mist (Funny I don’t remember mist smelling like cinder ash) and I position myself still there was 3 layer of hills and I purposely included the trees though I don’t think it helped much but still I like how this one turned out.
I was fortunate enough to wonder what she was taking and she showed me what she had taken and to my absolute amazement she had taken a pic like this which I shamefully copied as well.
I took the shot using film as I needed the full power of my Nikkor 17-35mm. The shot above was taken using my Fujifilm s5 pro with 50mm as it was the only lens I had that could focus very close. I’ll upload the wide shot once I’ve get it back from development.
The picture above is actually a shot of NikonK using his Olympus E3, he’s very much into macro shooting and had the proper lens.
Soon, I wonder off looking for something else to shoot. I’m not really into macro photography.
This pic here was taken using my 50mm wide open at 1.8 as I wanted only the flower in focus while I threw everything out into bokeh. I’m surprised by how the background looks like it’s spiraling around. I have only seen this with some shoot taken using noctilux and thought it was only a special property of a noctilux lens. From what I see now this does not seem to be the case with this shot.
Playing bokeh, I still find myself amazed at how well this lens can perform.
Overall this was a good outing. So until then pleasant dreams~
