I have spent the night with Syibli Fakih (a friend and facilitator at Saiful Nang Academy of Photography aka SNAP). We've taken a trip from Sg Besi LRT Station to Plaza Rakyat, Kuala Lumpur.
Once arrived, we've started shooting around Plaza Rakyat, Petaling Street, walking through Central Market, and then take a little break at Masjid Jamek for isya' prayer. After a while, we've decided return back by taking the LRT back to Sg Besi.
As a brief introduction: Che’ Ahmad Azhar is a lecturer at the Faculty of Creative Multimedia, Multimedia University, Cyberjaya, Selangor, Malaysia. A pioneer member of the faculty, he has taught in the field of visual communication and photography at the faculty for sixteen years.
His work has been featured on the Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA) and LENS Blog The New York Times and frequently invited as the jury, guest speaker and facilitator for international and local photography competitions and workshops. He's very popular in this photography genre and has inpired many new photographers throughout his work.
- To be an invisible photographer, shoot at the same place every day, every week, every time until every local person at that location treat you as a regular bypasser.
- Find a specific angle and repeat shooting at the same place until you get the perfect moment that you've desired.
- Look around to find another composition and try to shoot with the variety of viewing angle such as birds eye view, high level, eye level, low level and worms eye view.
- Treat everyday as a new day and it will definitely be a new situation and mood to shoot at.
It is an exiting night indeed but very tiring because since morning my schedule is full of activities. Reach home at 11.00, take some bath and straight away go to sleep without thinking much..
After 2 nights resting, here is the results from our outing. (click at the image to view large)
