One of my avid fan complain that I do not post enough of my work, by doing that; he can appreciate the photography I done and hopefully learn something from it :)
I am honoured indeed, so I have decided that I will post one of my better shot every week!
Good picture got to be seen big, so do click on it for a better view!
"SHY KIDS" was a candid shot I took in Kuching, Malaysia.
I was conducting a photography workshop for the local press photogs in Kuching, I was at a village taking shots of the "Long House"; a bamboo structure visually boring :)
While standing there pondering my angle-of-view, from the corner of my eye; I caught these two little kampong folks peeping at this confused old man.
A quick peep at my Canon EOS D2000 camera and satisfied the attached 17-35L lens is "good enough", I swung around and blazed off a few shots.
The rest, like they say; is history! No? Ha ha ha...
I adore this shot, love their shy expression!
Famous Last Words:
To be ready for candids, my shutter speed is usually set to "T" (shutter priority, duh!), 1/250 sec. I let the lens take care of the f stops.
I always have a good wide angle zoom attached. Don't skimp on quality glass!
The Canon D2000 was a second generation digital SLR, anything above ISO 400 contained too much noise. Now with my D300 Nikon, I can sleep well even shooting at ISO 1,600!
When you "notice" a candid, be discreet OR fire away really fast before your subject has a chance to react! Shoot first, ask question later. Mind you, I don't do that often, NOT nice ;)
Happy candid camera!
