Dear All,
Thank you so much again for visiting and commenting in the spirit of idea sharing where there is no right or wrong answer, and for the birthday wish.. Thank you...
Three postings ago, I mentiond that the KEY to taking photos is CONFIDENCE. Another KEY, to me, is MOOD. When my mood is off, so are my shots!!
In my next posting, I shall show how MOOD and MUSE combined to create photos that gave me joy and satisfaction. Oh ya! Let us not forget my long awaited new Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens too..
Have a great week and a greater week ahead.. Keep on shooting!!

Best regards,
Azli Jamil

ps: I had just realized today (06/04/06) that the text is missing. Wonder how that happened...

Dear all,
If I have offended anyone with my comments, I would like to apologize for being harsh but rest assured that I would keep on doing it coz what each person can expect from me is HONESTY.

I believe that the KEY to taking photos is CONFIDENCE. So to all those who include the word "CRAPPY" in their postings, please STOP doing that!!! It's not good for your CONFIDENCE!!!

Thank you very much for continuing to visit/comment in the spirit of idea sharing where there is no right or wrong answer…
Have a great week and a greater weekend ahead

Best regards,
Azli Jamil

ps: I've included the setting for my photos. % crop means % of photo I cropped out. Shutter and aparture setting were set at Program setting. I tend to adjust my ISO more than shutter and aparture unless there was a particular effect I was going for.

pps: My Tag shot:
Nothing fancy about the shot. The setting for the shot is ISO 200, 1/60. f/1.8, 50mm, 75% crop. Flash was bounced off ceiling.
It's obvious that the shot was horizontal. The place was dark and I was assisting my friend shot a birthday party. After hours of shooting in low light smoky area, I saw my relection on a glass door. So... I took a snapshot of myself.

Dear all,



The above photo of a boy clutching a new pair of shoes was taken by Gerald Waller at the Am Himmel orphanage, Austria in 1946. Look at the expression!!
The photo which appeared in The Best of LIFE is why I shoot people...

Have a great week and a greater weekend

Warmest regards,
Azli Jamil

ps: These photos were shot last Friday between 14.49 and 15.10 in front of KLCC. Thank you to the witty Izhal http://izhals.fotopages.com/ for alerting me about the event and for taking the time to comment which aided me in making my final selection

Dear All,
Thank you so much for visiting/commenting that keep inspiring and aiding me and other visitors in the spirit of idea sharing where there is no right or wrong answer…
I would like take this opportunity to share my favorite poem with you...

“IF” by Rudyard Kipling (winner of Nobel Prize in Literature – 1907)

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

Please keep visiting and commenting. Be brutal, if need be! I would just say “Ouch!!”
Thank you again… Have a very nice day and a nicer weekend…

Best regards,
Azli

ps: #5 (10/2004) and #6 (04/2005) are some of my most treasured memories. #5 is one of my five favorite photos and I could never look at #6 and not feel sad.
