I finally ended up at Pudu wet market, but explored the streets around the main market. It did not took long for interesting moments to appear. Lighting was glorious for the morning, intense directional sun light, and the sky was clear, creating bold and high in contrast image output. I think it was an hour and a half quick walk, I have gathered some images, and I thought I should call it a day. Solo photowalks are always faster and more efficient, as I got to go to the locations that I wanted and less waiting around.
Portrait of a Stranger
Saw this dude waiting outside the staircase entrance and thought the bold red shirt he was wearing matched the blue painted walls on the back nicely. He was friendly too and we had a little chat.
Baby On the Move
Saw this awesome sunspots spread over the area and I thought would make a good background for a street subject. By luck a lady carrying her baby, with umbrella and clothing having matching colors walked by.
Like what I have shared previously on how to create street drama, what goes up must come down. I saw the lady inside the truck and I knew she would be coming out of the truck soon. So I waited for a while and got this shot.
Toy Shops Are Colorful
I like the unevenness in this image, as the strong morning sun casted strong highlights and shadows in the image. I waited for a person wearing bold color clothing to step into the frame and the man in yellow was just the perfect candidate to fit the frame.
Can't have too many photos of birds, and I never get bored of shooting flying birds.
Followed this man around for a bit from behind and captured this shot. I do not normally shoot people from behind, but I think it works for this one shot. I like that there is another man greeting this guy from the motorcycle.
Red vs Blue
There is just something about red and blue combination that works. Many country flags have dominant red and blue colors, many superheroes as well.
Once Upon A Miao 2
Bought a new book, launched recently, authored by a friend from my hometown Kuching.
I notice that I am sharing less and less photographs from my shutter therapy sessions. I also did not shoot that many images in a single session in comparison to what I did 2-3 years ago. I believe that quality is more important than quantity, and I have become more and more selective of what I shoot on the street. Also, from the pool of images that went into the memory card, I administered a tighter curation process, and show only the images that I wanted to share.
How is your shutter therapy going lately? Do tell! I want to hear your stories.
