Team Building | SK Jalan Baharu

I had a great weekend. Team building at Sedim Eco Theme Park & Resort, organized for all the teachers, with lots of activities to have fun with.

Nothing much to say; I had a great time. Thanks to all my colleagues, hope we will continue participating in events of such :)

Panorama Camp | Langkawi Trip

It's been quite a while since I stepped my foot to Langkawi Island. After 2008, I haven't been to Langkawi much like I used to before. No more courses, means no more Langkawi for me.

I registered for a BTN course and I was suppose to register for the course there, so I decided not to leave my camera (although I left my bigma & tammy) with me regardless any chances of not being able to shoot anything during the course.

I was right; I don't have any free time to shoot; yet the course was cool. It was a great course. The trainers was cool; and we had a gr8 time.

The last day, I asked for permission to use my camera; and I shot whatever close in front of me. Although I was unable to shoot the hornbills and drongos, I'm satisfied.. At least I can shoot pics of me & friends..

Will visit Langkawi again; and this time I'm going birding!

Here are some of the pics I took during my time there.

The Red Beast | HDR

Too many people, too many distractions.. So I decided to edit this picture with a black background after the post processing with Photomatix to get the HDR image. Single NEF converted to five exposures, then edited on Photoshop.

Blaking Up the Mini | Mini Cooper | HDR

Just trying out something new, seeing HDR in a B&W. Someone told me, B&W involves details to make it look good. HDR means getting every detail in the shot.. I wonder how it would look like and this is the result..

Robberfly | Face to Face

Time and time again, this bug offers macro enthusiasts an opportunity to capture the beauty of nature, the greatness of the Creator, Allah SWT..

Just take a look at this frontal view, and it always amazes me.. One of the most interesting bug to capture..

Ride the Lightning

I've been trying to capture the lightning a couple of times before, and today I really got lucky. This is my first capture, and I'm hoping to capture more precious moments like this...

Spider with Eggsack @ Tupah

Spider with eggsack | Tupah (by Sir Mart Outdoorgraphy™)
It's an amazing sight to see spiders carrying it's young-lings on its back, but I didn't find any, yet, spotted this one with the sack or younglings, err.. I'm not sure..
Just thought of sharing this :)

This particular weevil is not only my favourite, but I guess I could say many macro enthusiasts love this one special bug. It can be found on a particular tree when it usually rolled up a leaf and lay an egg in it to hatch..
Nature always offers wonders for us who loves to discover..

The Flow IV | Tupah | HDR (by Sir Mart Outdoorgraphy™)

I took these shots before shooting macro at Tupah. How to shoot HDR, people might ask, the key thing is shooting a frame using three (or more) exposures. In this case.. I used five exposures for this, ran it through Photomatix and tweak it using Ps.

Try googling the tutorial on this, and give it a try. It's cool..!

I was about to shoot a rather small sized jumper when PakSu Najdi told me there's a green beauty on a tree, across the river stream. And when I saw it, wow.. Such a beauty not to be missed. I wanted to share the beauty with everyone, so I took a video after taking my 'insurance' shot..

These kind of animals will exist as long as us, the humans keeps on taking care of our environment. I am hoping that the mentality of the visitors of rekreasi Tupah will always remember how important it is to take care and take care of the cleanliness of these places, so it will remain pristine and our future generation will also able to enjoy the nature, and the beauty it offers..

Stuck on a pipe! | Robberfly

Stuck on a pipe! | Robberfly (by Sir Mart Outdoorgraphy™)
The robberfly, the big, hairy and illusive one. I love the details of this particular kind, but getting a good shot is tough.
Till the next encounter..!

The Illusive Big a$$ Hairy Robberfly... [HQ]

I love robberflies, and this particular one is like a drug for me. Since the first time I'm able to shoot it, I haven't got much of it, and shooting a video didn't even come into my mind.

This robberfly, I only see a couple of times a year. So hard to shoot it since it loves to stay up high, and always went AWOL after the first encounter..

Today I got my chance, and it makes me furiously happy :)

White Lights  (by Sir Mart Outdoorgraphy™)

I guess this is the simplest yet fun thing to do when you're planning to shoot at night. Simple setting, f22, ISO ranging from 100-400-800, depends on you, 30sec or bulb exposures, on a tripod, on timer, then the WB adjusted to what you like, I prefer redness, so I choose cloudy, and if you like white lights, adjust it to Tungsten ..
Try it.. it's freakin' fun :)

It's been a while since the last time I did any HDR imagery.. Today after a macro session with friends, we stopped by and had a quick 'long exposure' outing to shoot the river stream.. I took only a few shots, and this is one of them. Hopefully after this more HDR will appear on my Flickr photostream...

I was about to go out, when Amzar saw this jumping spider. He shouted calling me, as he knows I was looking for spiders to test my new diffuser. So here's one of the shots. I love how the diffuser ring lights reflected on the eyes.

I'm back with more!!!
