PEOPLE... TWO FRIENDS FROM ESTONIA...

Dear all,
I'm just an amateur photographer who takes simple pictures and this posting represents visual representation of some of my most treasured memories...
I met Andri Laidre (wearing glasses) and Anders Suvari at 1.30 p.m. on 23/06/06.
After photographing them at KLCC Park, we had lunch where they were introduced to iced tea (teh ais) and tandoori chicken. We went to Putrajaya, dropped by my apartment to pic up my 18-70 lens and back to KLCC where I took photos of them with the Petronas Twin Towers as the background (after I found out that the Towers is the main reason they came to Malaysia). We then had a delicious satay dinner in Bangsar and I finally said farewell to them at Puduraya where they took the 1.00 a.m. bus to Penang.
About a week later, I sent Andri an sms and found out that they went to Perhentian Island followed by Cameron Highlands. We met again at 5.00 p.m. on 30/06/06 and had dinner at my favorite restaurant, watched the Germany vs Argentina match, brunch at Kentucky Fried Chicken (they have never eaten at KFC before) and went to Malacca. We finally said our farewell on 01/07/06 at Sentral Station (after they had a taste of durian) where they took the 10.00 p.m. train to Singapore.
They have been friends for 8 years and I really enjoyed their company. The meals we had tasted sooo goood!
I have met, spoken, photographed and said goodbye to people from 35 countries in the last 6 months but I've never been as sad as I was when I said goodbye to Andri and Anders...
Will we meet again? Only time will tell... I really hope so...

Thank you so much again for visiting/commenting in the spirit of idea sharing where there is no right or wrong answer...
Have a great week and a greater week ahead.. Keep on shooting!!

Best regards,
Azli Jamil

PEOPLE... AND WIRELESS FLASH...

Dear all,
I LEARNT A NEW TRICK!!
It started when I saw a posting on http://jzawoo.fotopages.com of a birthday girl. The shots have black background!!! How did he do it??!!

When I saw him again at http://jemster.fotopages.com barbeque, I asked and he explained. Thanks
After that I started experimenting. #1 (http://risyars.fotopages.com) was shot at the barbeque which was attended by http://axcad74.fotopages.com, http://psycho.fotopages.com, http://touchrmgo.fotopages.com, http://alynnsis.fotopages.com, http://odowsun.fotopages.com, http://foxart.fotopages.com, http://fadzliali.fotopages.com, http://dasheela.fotopages.com, http://redtarantula.fotopages.com, http://jeebsion.fotopages.com, http://raksasa.fotopages.com and http://ijad.fotopages.com.

I've been practising this technique since including at a birthday (thanks Jiji) for http://ggkuc.fotopages.com (pictures #7, #8 and #9). I still remember how yummy the cupcakes made by http://kakyongns.fotopages.com was. The cakes were really good!!!!

As usual, my other shots (#2, #3, #4, #5 and #6) were shot around KLCC (Yep! I was surrounded by a lot of people #6 was shot right in front of the entrance facing the park.) About #4, I think I shot it but I'm not 100% certain that http://switakon.fotopages.com was taken by me or by http://munzir-fauzi.fotopages.com.

I'm just like a kid with a new toy, busy experimenting and learning . I've even emailed some photos to http://izhals.fotopages.com for his comments. Thanks...

Oh ya!! In case you are wondering how it is done. First you set both your camera and flash to wireless. Then, you change the shutter to be as fast as possible for flash use (in D70s it is 1/500) and the ISO to be as low as possible. Set the aparture to 5.6, hold the flash with your left hand at a side lighting position (careful that you don't cover the wireless sensor) and take a shot. If the background isn't dark enough, decrease the size of the aparture. I'm still experimenting with this form of Creative Lighting System. I still have more to learn and I hope to share more with you too...

Thank you so much again for visiting/commenting in the spirit of idea sharing where there is no right or wrong answer... Please keep visiting and commenting...
Have a great week and a greater week ahead... Keep on shooting!!

Best regards,
Azli Jamil

ps: Just wanna share something, in most of my postings (this posting included), #5 is always my favorite photo...

Please.. Please.. Let us stop all these labelling, i.e. 'otai', 'sifu', 'beginner' etc.. We are all equal citizens under fotopages and should be able to comment without fear or favor. OK?
Have a great week and a greater weekend ahead.. Keep on shooting!!

Best regards,
Azli Jamil

ps: All pictures were shot around KLCC.
#1: The American children were in the prams and I saw their eyes. So I said to the mom "Can I take their pictures?"
#3: Shot during dinner when I met FAMILY FROM FRANCE again. Gave them a CD of the pictures I posted and more. Will mail them a CD of photos taken during dinner.
#5: Emailed the large JPEG file and other files to the Dutch family who was in KL for only a few hours.
#8: (The boy in green). The mom put him on the stage for photographers during the fashion week. All 5 photographers who were there started shooting.

Other than those mentioned above, all the other shots were candid.
