Today, I was quite lucky to have captured one of the best and dramatic sunset sky over Kuala Lumpur, from the Skybar at Level 33, Traders Hotel here in Kuala Lumpur. Went up quite late because only by 6:30pm, the clouds started to show some colours. So happen that three of my friends (Dr. Ali Shamsul Bahar, Fadzly Zainuddin & Muhammad Faisal Othman) from the For Better Exposure group were there to capture the moment too. I've used the small low profile table tripod, only to be asked by the waiter to be taken down. Managed only to capture 350 images for the timelapse.
This image is part of the time lapse footage, shot using SONY A7RII with the SONY FE 12-24mm F4G lens. The image was processed in Adobe Photoshop CC, with the Google's NifSoftware, Topaz Detail and Athentech's Perfectly Clear plugins.

Last Sunday, I've spent some sunrise and night time shooting with the SONY FE 12-24mm F4G lens at the intersection of Jalan Ampang and Jalan Yap Kwan Seng in Kuala Lumpur. The distortion is well controlled and sharpness is superb at f/8.
It is with great pleasure to inform that Vedd & I will be conducting the HDR/DRI Workshop in Kuala Lumpur on 27/1/2018 and 28/1/2018. It is open for registration now and seats are limited! Save your seat now!
The venue for the practical photo shoot will be confirmed later to all confirmed participants. Good day!
Tonight, I accompanied my other half to meet her schoolmates at Suria KLCC and while waiting for her, I took out my gear and head to the Symphony Lake for a shot of the fountains, Suria KLCC and the majestic Petronas Twin Towers. This is what I got from the lone outing. This was shot with my SONY A7RII and SONY FE 12-24mm f/4 G lens. That 12mm zero distortion lens is really WIDE!
EXIF: 12mm; f/8; ISO 400; HDR 9 exposures. Please click on the image for full high resolution on Flickr.
And guess what! I bumped into Pete DeMarco and two traveling gentlemen from Melbourne, Australia there! We ended up having a few chats while having dinner there.
Had an unplanned visit to the Bukit Bintang Monorail Station with my buddy Pete DeMarco and Othman Abdullah to shoot some light trails as well as the moving monorail at the intersection of Jalan Bukit Bintang and Jalan Sultan Ismail. The platform is located below the monorail platform and can be easily accessible to public. Since the place is a bit secluded, perhaps bring along a friend or two when shooting there. You can shoot on a tripod or on a clamp since there are railings there. Go for the railings on the left of the column to prevent some vibrations from the monorail trains passing by.
Images were shot with my SONY A7RII and SONY FE 16-35mm F/2.8 GM lens on a Manfrotto MT055CXPRO4 carbon fibre tripod and FLM-FP32 ballhead.

Due to the intensity of the lights, constant movement on the roads and sidewalks as well as the monorail that's traveling back and forth, this image has to be blended from multiple images with different exposures and shutter speeds.
I'll be holding and HDR/DRI Workshop with Vedd Edd on 27th & 28th January 2018 (please refer to my blog entry on the workshop for details. Thank you).
Had the company of Ustaz Othman Abdullah on a photo outing at the fountains at the Esplanade, Alamanda Putrajaya Shopping Centre. The images were shot with my SONY A7RII and SONY FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens, with NiSi CPL, NiSi GND .9 soft and RayMaster ND8 Zero filters used.
EXIF: 16mm, f/8, ISO 400, HDR 9-exposures.
EXIF: 16mm, f/16, ISO 400, 25 sec; single exposure. Converted to black & white with Google NikSoft Silver Efex Pro.
Today, I had the great pleasure of accompanying Malaysia's Fujifilm Ambassador, YM Raja Kamal Raja Hussin for a sunrise outing at Symphony Lake, KLCC and we were grateful to be blessed with a great sunrise moment. Alhamdulillah.
EXIF: 16mm; f/8; ISO 400; HDR 9 exposures.
EXIF: 16mm; f/11; ISO 100; Single exposure, NiSi CPL + NiSi GND .9 Soft filters used.
Nothing like a good breakfast with fellow photographer friends. Here at a food court in Kg. Baru.
The River of Life project consists of three (3) stages of work, namely River Cleaning (77% completion), River Beautification (46% completion) and Commercialization & Tourism (beyond 2020). The view at Masjid Jamek, Kuala Lumpur here is under Zone 2 where bright blue LED lights and side fountains decorate this important landmark in Kuala Lumpur. For more info, you can refer to their website at riveroflife.com.my/en/home/
Here, these two (2) images were shot with my SONY A7RII with the SONY FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM lens. These images were shot at 35mm, f/8 and ISO 400, HDR from 9-exposures. Blended in Photomatix Pro v.6.0.3, then post-processed in Adobe Photoshop CC 2018, with Google Niksoft and Athentech Perfectly Clear plugins.

On 18/10/2017, I took a brief one-night stay in Singapore CBD to put my two new lenses to the test, the SONY FE 12-24mm f/4 G and the SONY FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM. The hotel is about 1km walking distance to the Merlion Park, where I spent most of the sunset and sunrise (the next day) there. Thought of sharing my experiences with you all. Here are the shots. Thank you.
I've used this lens for almost 2 months now and really love the sharpness it delivers, even wide open. The starburst is excellent. I will share further experiences with the lens. For now, here are some sample images from the lens.
This is the photography journey of Nur Ismail Photography where all the experiences from this year onwards will be shared with the audience. Thanks for stopping by! :-)
