Zuiko and a Barongan Dancer of Bali

The rim lights provided a regal aura to the girl.

Seated about ten rows away from the stage posed no problem for the Zuiko Digital ED50-200mm f2.8-3.5 SWD lens. And the E-3 had no problem locking focus with the subject in strong backlighting, too.

What I loved most about the stage lighting was how the sunlight was controlled to illuminate the performers. The soft lighting provided exquisite shadow and highlight tones; thus, resulting in sublime colors to the already intricately designed costumes.

Zuiko and Photography Classes

It's confirmed.

I will be conducting a series of classes for Beginner Photography; three classes to be exact. Starting at the end of October, the classes will continue until mid November. Total students? More than 60!!!!

A training company has engaged me for my photography skills and know-how. I am building a curriculum for the next stage, maybe into Lighting and Portraiture. I just hope everything turns out well.

Wish me luck!!!!

Zuiko and the Exora

Well... I did it.

I just got my Proton Exora on Monday, and boy was I amazed with this MPV, aka mini-van.

No pictures here, but I started a new spin-off blog just for the Exora.

I will criss-cross the Zuiko and Exora from now on.

The Exora being a first fully designed Malaysian MPV, there were a lot of hype surrounding it. Hopefully there's lots of things to tell.

Zuiko and the Surfer Child of Bali

The surf, the sand..... and a child.

When I was on a trip to Bali early last year, I brought along the E-3, Zuiko Digital 11-22mm f2.8-3.5 and Zuiko Digital ED50-200mm f2.8-3.5 SWD in a small shoulder bag. It's just perfect, not too heavy for a couple of hours walking.

During one of the tour, we stopped at a seafood place at Jimbaran beach. While waiting for the sunset, I saw this image of the little girl sitting with a surfboard. I observed her actions for quite a while, before deciding to make the image. The light from the setting sun provided the rim light that I really liked, and without a moments notice I took the shot. Incidentally, that was the only shot!!
