If you don't know it already, I'm a photography enthusiast. I've 'invested' quite a significant amount of money towards it, and I'm not yet regretting it.

Anyway, I have a few friends who share the same love and we do go out and take pictures in places I normally wouldn't even consider going. I've made the taxing (yes, taxing for a fatty like me) climb up Bukit Tabur to take these shots:

Went all the way to Dengkil to look for the abandoned dredge but instead found myself in Paya Indah Wetlands since the they do not let people in the dredge area anymore. Paya Indah yielded pictures such as this:

I'm always on the lookout for nice spots to take pictures, and I have 2 places in mind for my next photography outing which I'm planning for this coming Sunday - Bukit Broga and plane spotting at KLIA. Arin suggested the derelict Flat Pekeliling before it gets torn down, and Eddie suggested Highland Towers sambil carik hantu.

So folks, any other suggestions to keep me occupied? I love nice sceneries, how about an open field of paddy somewhere? Or unencumbered tall grass field like the wheat field in Gladiator? I like weathered and abandoned structures too, old colonial houses? cemeteries? It would be great if it's within 1 hour's drive from KL, but I would still consider farther ones too if it's too good to let go. So, a little help here?

If you notice, there's a lot of tv adverts shot at Ladang Ternakan UPM. I used to shoot pictures over there too.

Go after dawn. Around 6 to 7 in the morning. Shoot dews and wet grasses.

Masa nak dekat senja pun cantik.

aishah: hrm, sabak bernam eh..will kiv that..

za: yeah, been there but it was noon so the light wasn't so nice. you can see some of the pic in my flickr. planning to go again though, tak puas hati with the light.

You can go there at noon but try to use lower ISO and shorter exposure time.

With a few tweaks here and there, I believe that ladang is quite a place to squeeze your photography skills out.

my photography lecturer once told me that the best time to shoot outdoor is on the chinese new year.. the sky is so blue. he used to wake up at 5am and wait for sunrise.. so CNY is coming, maybe u can get great shot!
another thing he told me is to never shoot outdoor at noon (11am-2pm)coz u will never get good photo becoz of the lighting..

p/s: i love all of ur photos!! very nice...
