This time of the year, I always have the interest to go out and have fun taking photos. Though for some local people, it’s kinda awkward to see someone with bulky camera hanging on his neck (sometimes shoulder) walking around, I couldn’t care less but keep taking photos anyway. It doesn’t harm anyone in any way.
So for this time, I decided to take Black & White photos, and use the 58mm yellow filter to bring out more contrast to the images. The destinations: my small office at home and Pancur Hitam beach, Labuan. Enjoy!
Tool of the trade
Ancient antenna (view from my window)
Then, to the Pancur Hitam beach, about 5 minutes drive from where I live.
I didn’t use tripod, so that best explain the horrible horizontal line. The fisherman looked at me several times before he relaxed and surrendered himself to this poor beginner photographer.
Doesn’t look like commercial airline to me
Two separate entities. I tried adjusting the aperture so I can get the father-sons picture more focused, but it turns out the couple at the back won the aperture test. But I guess it does tell you a story. “When you’re children, go out with daddy. When you’re youth, go out with your boyfriend/girlfriend”. *wink*
I realized Black & White is not my forte, but I am not too selective in what kind of photos I’m interested in. I’m still learning, and there’s still a long way to go. However, at this stage, I am satisfied with the outcome. And every time before I press the shutter, I will remember a saying (Flanegan told me the same thing at HobbyCon 2007), “Let a picture tell a story”.
Rather than torturing the zoom lens, I prefer to focus on the tree than the peoples at the back.
