Hello everyone! We're at the end of 2018 already. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you, happy New Year 2019. May 2019 brings good health and prosperity to all friends and family.
For those shooting fireworks tonight, here's some tips that I'd like to share with you all! (New Straits Times BOTS Click, Page 42) Special thanks to Mr. Izwan Ismail for the opportunity.
LAMPU Putrajaya, or known as Light and Motion Putrajaya (LAMPU) Festival has become a regular year-end event for the past seven years and a highlight of Putrajaya's events calendar. The main attraction is the spectacular projection mapping show which, using state-of-the-art technology, brings the entire facade of the imposing Palace of Justice building to life with an exciting and colourful light imagery and sounds.
On 30 December 2018, I took my family for a trip to Putrajaya to view the LAMPU 2018 event. Upon arriving to the site, I was greeted by a VIP from Perbadanan Putrajaya who had graciously invited me & my family to enter into the VIP area to view the show. There were bean bags where visitors can lie down and rest while watching the spectacular light show.
I had used my SONY α7RIII with SEL1635GM lens, 16mm, 1/13 sec, f/2.8, ISO 1600. Here are some of the images captured during LAMPU 2018.

Sunrise at Masjid Putra this morning during my first outing with Lee Photo Sdn Bhd as NiSi brand ambassador. Another great milestone in my photography journey. Looking forward for more exciting outings and collaborations with Lee Photo.
It was quite a turn out with about 50 participants, from about 70 participants who signed up. At least half were there at 6:20am. We finished shooting around 9:00am and proceed for breakfast at Putrajaya Lake Club. We all adjourned by 10:15am.
The benefits of using the NiSi Filter System are:
I've previously used several brands prior to using NiSi filters and I must say that NiSi is the way to go for me. If you are looking to own this brilliant filter system, please do not hesitate to drop me an email at email@example.com.
My special thanks to Lee Photo Sdn Bhd for arranging this outing and sincere thanks to everybody who made it this morning. Till next time, have a great holiday everybody!
This was shot my SONY α7SII with SEL1635GM lens, 16mm, f/8, ISO 400, where I used the NiSi V5 Pro holder + NiSi Landscape CPL + NiSi GND .9 Soft filters. This is part of my timelapse sequence.
This was shot my SONY α7RIII with Laowa 12mm lens, 1/30 sec, ISO 400, where I used the NiSi Laowa holder + NiSi Landscape CPL + NiSi Reverse GND .6 filters. You will get some vignetting when using the NiSi CPL, but this can be easily corrected in post processing.
This was shot my SONY α7RIII with Laowa 12mm lens, 30.0 sec, ISO 50, where I used the NiSi Laowa holder + NiSi Landscape CPL + NiSi ND1000 + NiSi ND8 filters.

Menara PjH at Sunset
The conditions was ideal for me to take out my gear and shoot at this location. This images was taken with SONY α7RIII with the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D lens., 15 sec, f/11, ISO 100, NiSi GND .9 Soft filter used.

Iceland...the Land of Fire and Ice. It's every landscape photographer's dream to go there at least once in their lifetime. I've always thought of Iceland as ultimate paradise for landscape photographers where you have opportunity to photograph countless waterfalls, mountains, fjords, volcanoes, and last but not least, the elusive Aurora Borealis.
The trip was meticulously planned back in July 2017. Several itinerary options were carefully planned to visit as many locations as possible in the whole of Iceland. To maximize our experience, I've roped in the services of a travel agent who is very familiar with Iceland. Hours of research was done through website information and sharing of experiences from friends who have been to Iceland, to ensure success of this trip. The trip date was selected to capitalize on the three public holidays during that period.
This is my 4th photography trip that I have successfully arranged, after Photography Trip to South Island New Zealand in August 2016 (7 participants), Photography Trip to Bromo, East Java, Indonesia in April 2018 (11 participants) and Family-cum-Photography Trip to North Island, New Zealand in August 2018.
Participants (L to R):
I've included some write-ups on the locations that were visited are (please click on the hyperlink to access my blog pages): Gullfoss, Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, Hraunfossar, Reynisjara & Vik, Solheimasandur, Strokkur Geysir, Eldhraun Lava Fields, Fjallsarlon, Jokusarlon, Diamond Beach, Stokksnes Vestrahorn, Godafoss, Hverir, Hvitserkur, Kirkjufellsfoss and Reykjavik. We have managed to cover a total distance of 2,648km during the 10-day road trip!
This was the poster for the trip, and advertisement was only to a closed group of photographers.
The trip's logo was designed by El'Arief Mohd Khair, one of my New Zealand 2016's participants.
The logo was also embroidered on our trip's T-shirt for the participants to use during the trip.
