Spice garden (Batu Ferringhi) isn’t just about its spices only. It serves as a major photo-shooting choice for many of local folks as well as those from outstation. I was *ahem* honored to be able to do a couple photo-shoot session with my colleague earlier last week. The result….

Mr and Mrs Low


Shame to tell that this is my very first time covering couple photo shooting. There’s really lots to learn from this outing. Apart from being able to test my newly acquired reflector, I have learned a lot on how to coordinate the whole process. The next outing would be definitely better in photo quality, faster in shooting and setting-up and lighter in equipments carried.

Lots of thanks to Wendy for helping out in this photo shooting session. She fell sick one day after that due to dehydration. Some photos are taken by her too!

Bayan Lepas, Penang

Well well well, last weekend I went to a restaurant located somewhere along the hilly road down to town. There’s really nothing to talk about the food there other than its higher than average pricing. But, it also offers sauna during the daytime for just RM 10 per pax! And the restaurant boost spectacular view to the city. I can even see the airport runway too when visibility is good.

With my tripod and camera gear brought along for dinner, I captured some photos of the night view!

Langkawi Panoramic Bridge 360′ Panorama

Open in new window (full window for better viewing pleasure) :D You can move around by holding on to your left mouse click button and zooming in and out using your mouse middle wheel button! :D

Tada~ Here’s a 360 degrees view panorama created from the end of the Langkawi Panorama Bridge (sky bridge). It’s taken using my faithful Canon 400D. I was using Sigma 18-200 with polarizer filter on in the hope of getting more details on the sky over the bright day.

Technically, it’s quite straightforward in composing this panorama. Basically I’ll just overlap my snapshot 50% or more to the previous photo taken and repeat the cycle twice/thrice just to be safe from human movement/ blurring/ exposure problem/ any other potential problem. Of course, I mounted my camera on a tripod.

What do I use to produce the panorama? I bet you are excited to know! The panorama above is created using Pano2VR, PTGui and Adobe Photoshop. These combo work just like wonder. PTGui is one of the best stitching program I ever found. :)
