Street photography amat sinonim dengan dengan gambar-gambar manusia dijalanan. Tak kiralah siapa yang merakamnya, sama ada mereka yang berpengalaman mahupun yang baru berjinak-jinak didalam dunia street photography, akan cuba menghasilkan gambar yang terdapat "human subject" didalam gambarnya. Namun begitu, tidak semestinya setiap gambar jalanan "wajib" mempunyai "human subject" didalam setiap gambar.
Mengikut difinisi Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka - perkataan "matlamat" juga bermaksud "tujuan, objektif, sasaran, kehendak, hajat, hasrat, niat, impian, cita-cita, harapan, misi, motif" atau pon "destinasi". Dan untuk berjaya didalam sesuatu bidang, sama ada hobi ataupon kerjaya, seseorang itu haruslah mempunyai matlamat yang hendak dicapai. Sama ada matlamat jangka pendek mahupun jangka panjang, matlamat membantu menetapkan destinasi yang harus dicapai oleh individu tersebut agar usaha lebih fokus dan tersusun - bersesuaian dengan matlamat yang hendak dicapai.
Hari Merdeka (Malaysian for 'Independence Day'), also known as Hari Kebangsaan (National day), refers to the day when the Federation of Malaya's independence from the British Empire was officially declared. At exactly 09:30 on 31 August 1957, the declaration was read by the first Chief Minister of Malaya, Tunku Abdul Rahman at the Merdeka Stadium in the presence of thousands of people including Malay Rulers, members of the federal government, and foreign dignitaries.
To commemorate the event, Hari Merdeka was declared a national holiday in Malaysia and observed annually on 31 August.
Have you seen a picture that triggered your curiosity to find out the story behind it? Have you seen a picture that invokes your emotion such as sad, angry, happy, shocked etc.? Have you heard people said that the pictures are worth a thousand words? All these happened because the image itself has been through a creative thinking process from the photographer’s mind. The creation of a photograph is a process that involves numerous decisions and actions.
In these regards, I want to discuss this topic specifically on how to be focused in Street Photography genre.
I've always wanted to try to shoot with a medium format film camera. At first, I've wanted to purchase an Hasselblad 500 series but the price is too expensive for me. The camera itself will cost me more than RM5k and that is NOT including the film and development expenses - which I think is very unreasonable for me to spend that much for an hobby.
After a while searching through the web, I've decided to purchase an almost a mint condition Minolta Autocord with a very reasonable price. Minolta Autocord is a Japanese TLR camera that's competes directly with Rolleiflex which manufactured Franke & Heidecke (and later Rollei GmbH), in Germany.
