We had tons of fun shooting those silky water effect at Sungai Congkak. Here are the three photographers who went in and out of the water soaking themselves and their gears wet just to get the shots as they imagined it would be.

[NATURE] Sungai Congkak, Hulu Selangor

I've always wanted to shoot those silky water shots. Recently had the chance to shoot it when I visited Sungai Congkak, Hulu Selangor. Equipped with Cokin GND2,4,8 and a tripod, there I was with a few friends soaking ourselves in the chilling water trying to get the best angle.

This won't be the last time me visiting Sungai Congkak. I was mesmerized with the calmness and cooling atmosphere. I will be back for more shots and leisure, with family and friends.

The shots were post processed with Orton effect (you can download the photoshop action on the net). However, I didn't use 100% of the Ortonized output. I blended the Ortonized layer with the original layer with a 30-45% opacity.

The Nifty Fifty Project #2

#2 - Patriotism (ISO200, 1/4000sec, f/2.2)

The Nifty Fifty Project #1

I have decided to create a photography project for myself. This photography project is called the Nifty Fifty project because the all the photos in this project will be shot using the 50mm f/1.8 lens. All shots in the Nifty Fifty project will be using shallow DOFs, ie. between f/1.8 - f/2.8. The idea is to emphasis on certain details of a subject with having to complicate the interpretation of the photo. I plan to shoot 50 shots for this Nifty Fifty project before proceeding to the next project.
