I had been out the whole day. 10 hours! First we went to Ulu Paip in Kedah. My little boy call it Bulu Paip and it is sooooo funny. We purposely don’t want to correct him so all of us went to Bulu Paip. It is a very secluded place with no DIGI coverage but have Celcom. That’s why I have engaged guards to help me manned my blog. LOL.
The main purpose of my trip is to take waterblur photos. Adjust aperture to F16 to F22, shutter speed to real slow but I don’t know how many seconds cos my cilaka Nikon D40 says 0.625 seconds on the exif but on the menu it says 1.6. Ada sama kah ini maciam? Blek, I hate all these numbers on the shutter speed dial and only rely on my instinct.
I also learnt that taking long exposure photos take skills and the co-operation of the sun! It was playing hide and seek, peekaboo with me and it was so frustrating because by the time I got a decent settings, (using manual focus, and manual setting and tripod plus timer) it shines again. Before I can take many pics, it went to hide.
In the end, I ended up with buckets of sweats over them. So, what do I do? Jump into the river as well!
My little kid has no fear! He enjoys drifting along with the current. Oh before I hear any sei8pohs say, ‘aiyerr..dangerous lor, drifting like that, it is a pool. Meaning, one big pool and not a river going down all the way. If want to read my blog, don’t nag hor? I paling pantang is to hear people nagging. In real life or blog.
I hate how my voice turns out in those ciplak camera phone! The video is taken with Pentax M20.
One more waterblur photo. If you like waterblur photos, check out those breathtaking ones from Flickr group for Waterblur.
My photos are in RAW and Jpeg format but I only use PICASA to edit. So what you see is what I got. Milky meh? Really ah?
As for the title, trust me, we always have to jump into the deep end to learn to swim. In everything, find the hardest thing to tackle and you shall learn. *stroking imaginary wise old man’s long white beard*
Have a good weekend to all!
