Some people may like it and some people may hate is especially those who are too concern about perfect skin tone. So my e-Book is not for them, my e-Book is for those who have never fear to express themselves. Colors play an important part in our life, some people doesn’t care to pay for a higher price on their cars for a specific colors and design, the car and engine is still the same but they make a big decision on colors. For me personally I’m very particular about colors, like choosing my camera bag, I’ve a Crumpler bag, and I don’t like black so I’ve to wait for a few month to get my colors, something in between Grey and Green.

My point is people can be so choosy about colors. back to my color tone and why I like to play with tone is this, very simple explanation, certain colors really can enhance a mood on a pictures, all pictures, sometimes mute or fade colors picture work great with portrait where there is some kind of emotional feeling into it, for an example a picture of an old man looking through out of a windows, longing for something, this type of a picture will work great without too many colors that will distract a viewer from “the mood”. So either convert those picture onto black and white, sepia or just fade their colors a little bit will do the job, will bring our attention straight to “the mood”, to the “feeling” of loneliness.

We should know when the colors may work and when the colors can become a distraction. For a light heart moment or some kind of a warm feeling I like to add more yellowish or orange tinted colors on my pictures to create more “warmth feeling” onto it. It is not as simple as add more yellow or just bump up the saturation, you won’t get that kind of tones, I’ve try that, so my e-Book will guide you through how to get that kind f tones. I’ll show you the way, the way that most people can understand, as simple as it can be.

Lately there is a trend where people especially here in Malaysia are more aware or starting to pay close attention to the tones, I’ve often get comments something like this, “Nice Tones”. It’s not easy to describe about “Nice Tones” you just absorb it unconsciously. People in United State or from European Country have been using the tones long time enough, from film to digital, I like their tones and it is not because I want to be something like them but I want my picture to have a “feeling”. Normal picture without any color tones into it, is just normal, maybe it is a picture of sadness but without the right combination of colors, the mood wasn’t so strong. For an example a picture of a crying with a bright colorful cloth and a picture of a crying child in black and white will have a different kind of mood, sure enough the picture in a black and white  hold much stronger emotional feeling than those in a bright colorful photograph, even though it is same kind of a picture, the feeling is not the same.

Colors can show happiness and colors also can also show sadness. Our life can be so colorful or just monochromatic…

I will update about my e-Book on the next blog update , about the price, few tips and tricks about using it and also how to get it. Stay tune…

Lately I was a bit busy shooting model for fun, I’m not making any money or planned to sell any of my images, just want to polish my skill and having a great time with my friends. This is portraiture session at Putrajaya Administrative Capital of Malaysia. It was full of modern looking building, and about this shot, I like the glass on the building here, great reflective material, about our model for the photo shoot, she is from Indonesia, very nice and gorgeous looking lady. Usually I like to do portraiture with long tele photo lens but during my photo session at Putrajaya I want to include the surrounding area also, wide lens is my choice of the day, I did use a long tele photo lens but I keep it minimum. Most of the building at Putrajaya is in monotone of color, so if you guys are planning to do any portraiture shoot here, I would suggest to have a model to wear something colorful in order for the model to stand out from the area, unless you want your subject to blend together with the surrounding area, that’s your choice.

I’ve been busy lately with model shooting, I’m not making any commercial or shoot for the money but just hanging out with a bunch of photographers sharing ideas and thought about photography, most of our models this times or most of the times are teenagers, Myspace or Friendster kind of things, a little bit awkward for me to shoot them because I was a little bit on the “older” side and most of my friends too. But in the end we are having fun, just don’t ask me to go out and take a street demonstration shot that will “change the world”, I was referring to the world “scenario” at the moment, those things happen even when I wasn’t even born yet and nothing gonna change that period. Back to the photo shoot above, actually I was taking that shot in some of black alley that was everywhere in the world you can find it but this one is on a safe area, in fact a lot of people come and go here, there are also people stop from their track just to have a look at what we are trying to do, in the end we are having fun…
