A jam-packed half day pre-wedding photo shoot at KLPAC early in the morning, before topping off with an indoor studio shoot, all within a span of 10 crazy hours. The weather in the blazing morning sun was uncomfortably hot; otherwise, it was good that it did not rain. I moved very quickly on set for the shoot at KLPAC, using only one speed light and one assistant.
It's my second visit to Australia in ten years; this time exploring South Australia's cosmopolitan coastal capital of Adelaide. Unfortunately, it was only a short one week trip which coincided with pretty much the height of summer.
Thankfully, my arrival was met with a short respite from the heat; a somewhat cooler and more pleasant weather. As always, a southern hemisphere location means great directional lighting and clear - almost insanely surreal - blue skies.
I made a trip back to Sarawak, Borneo over Christmas as my last excursion for 2015. Shortly after touching down in Kuching via the first flight of the day, we drove for almost 4.5 hours eastward to Batang Ai Dam.
We arrived in the afternoon and the sun was out in full while an orang asli was preparing his boat to be loaded with goods.
I was at the Belum-Temengor Rainforest area, or better known as the Royal Belum State park for a visit recently. It was a short trip and as with any trips, the journey or process of getting there is sometimes more than the fun of the destination itself.
Our drive up north the state of Perak bordering Thailand took us to Sauk, a small town along the way. Idyllic and nostalgic of yesteryears indeed.
Who would have thought a tranquil place like this exists just a 30 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur? It sure does. This Templer Park Rainforest Retreat home stay is run by the Saw family.
Armed with the X-T1, my simple aim was to capture the close-knit relationship between man-made dwelling and its surrounding nature by emphasising on the prevailing colour, texture and naturally-found lines and shapes afforded by everyday simple objects.
