Raynox DCR 250 - Ke Dunia Makro.

Cubaan demi cubaan saya lakukan untuk mendapatkan imej makro yang terbaik. Kalau sebelum ini saya pernah menggunakan teknik reverse lense, kali ini saya mencuba lensa Raynox DCR 250 dipadankan bersama prime lense Vivitar 28-70mm makro pula.
Hasilnya -Hmmmm beberapa keping gambar yang agak kabur dan tidak menepati ramalan awal saya. Ternyata juga, gimik promosi Raynox DCR250 yang berlambak lambak dilaman web adalah cubaan terbaik pihak tersebut untuk terus "menipiskan" poket anda yang dahagakan imej makro yang tajam serta menarik.

Nasihat saya, sekiranya anda betul-betul berminat dengan imej makro, habiskan duit anda kepada lensa makro sebenar seperti Tokina 90mm f2.8 ataupun lensa makro yang sehebat dengannya.Lensa Raynox DCR 250 ini hanyalah sesuai bagi kalangan kita yang baru menceburkan  diri dengan alam makro !

Langkawi Sunset !

Honestly, there is no exact science to taking a great silhouette image. All you need that you must be on the right time and at the right place. By the way, I  just took my first shots silhouette style, by accident when I was at Berjaya Resort Langkawi last weekend.

**Pahn Thai Restaurant at dawn - Image was taken from room 1101,Berjaya Resort Langkawi with Nikkor 50mm F/1.8G

And there is another two silhouette images from my previous posting.Both of these image evokes a feeling and a mood.  And it captures the moment without the distracting detail.

Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace 2011- Part III

Di dalam kesibukan saya menjalankan tugasan harian sewaktu LIMA tempoh hari, dalam diam diam Nana dan Erika keluar juga menghadiri temasya tersebut bersama pak cik kesayangan mereka.

Terkedu saya melihat gambar gambar yang diambil oleh kedua duanya tempoh hari.
Maklumlah, siang malam saya berkerja di dalam tempoh tersebut sehingga masa yang sepatutnya terluang untuk mereka agak terhad....

Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace 2011.

If there's thing I've learn in my years of exploring images and aircraft during Langkawi Airshow, it is: The more prepared you are, the greater your chances of getting the shot when Lady Luck shows up. I was simply wandering the Mahsuri International Hall earlier, quite taken by the many aircraft, I braced my camera against my chest and quickly fired off multiple shots...

Although, the tarmac gate is still closed, I was lucky enough as my Sigma 70-300mm lense was with me all the times.This is all my favourites aircraft....

Sukhoi SU 30MKM - Now with Algeria, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Russia, Uganda, Venezuela, and Vietnam. These bird can ''out maneuver anything on the air'' ! 

Sukhoi SU-30 MKM Royal Malaysian Air Force at the Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition 2011.

One of the most beautiful aircraft in modern world -  Dassault Rafale .Few country like India and Malaysia had shortlisted Dassault Rafale in their new budget to buy the aircraft. Many people think Dassault Rafale will have an edge over Eurofighter in the deal.

Is it just me or does this thing look extremely similar to the Eurofighter?

C-17 Globemaster.This is my favorite plane of them all, some day I'll have one! Lol !

F/A 18 Super Hornet. Put a fighter like this in the hands of a U.S. Navy or experience Royal Malaysian Air Force pilot - Game over!

Joyce and her cute Sikorsky helicopter. She been sticking around with me for the past few years and her love for aeronautical continued to grow.

Sikorsky - Designers and builders of the world's most advanced helicopters for commercial, industrial, and military use.

 Remember -The first step in becoming a hot shot fighter pilot is listening to the oldies.You won’t even get past round one without that, tough guy !

Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace 2011 : Eurofighter Typhoon.

The BAE Systems announced its intention to market the Typhoon as a replacement for the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) Mikoyan MiG 29N, due to be phased out probably in late 2011. According to them, the Typhoon's multi-role capabilities allow it to replace the MiG-29N.Other contenders include Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, Boeing F-15 Eagle, Dassault Rafale, JAS 39 Gripen NG, Sukhoi Su-35, and Lockheed F-16C/D Fighting Falcon.

For LIMA 2011, The Eurofighter Typhoon will be flying across the skies of Langkawi for the first time as the RAF aircraft participates in one of the most important global defence and security shows, which takes place in Langkawi, Malaysia, from 6-10 December 2011.

By the way, I was lucky enough to get Trade Visitor access to LIMA and snap photos of  these Eurofighter Typhoon !

Obsesi Macro - Nikon D3000 & D300S

Saya betul betul berminat dengan dunia macro.Ketajaman sesetengah imej yang dihasilkan oleh jurugambar professional telah mencetuskan minat saya yang cukup mendalam semenjak beberapa tahun yang lalu. Bermula dengan kamera berjenama Kodak sehinggalah ke zaman Nikon D300S, saya cukup obses dengan imej macro.  

Saya kongsikan disini beberapa keping imej macro yang pernah saya shot terdahulu dan Insha Allah, saya akan cuba berkongsi imej super macro pula apabila lensa yang saya tempah tiba nanti.
