If you are nearby any major bookstores or newsagents in Malaysia, do have a quick look out for Digital SLR Magazine May 2012 issue at the magazine stands. Turn to Page 18, and you will find me there !!
This was a rare opportunity for me to have my photographs published in prints.
I do have several small previous encounters where some of my photographs were published in local newspaper and other magazines but those were mostly assignment, and some were simply doing a good friend a favor. However, in this Digital SLR magazine, there were FOUR full pages featuring my street photographs taken at Kuala Lumpur streets (Chow Kit, Jalan Masjid India, Pudu, Petaling Street, Bukit Bintang). I was initially asked to submit 8 to 9 photographs, and out of which only 4 or 5 would make it to prints. However, I decided to send in 14 images, and much to my surprise 10 were selected and printed. Sometimes I do believe it is better to give more than you were asked to in the first place. More importantly, those were street photographs taken during my shutter therapy sessions, very recently. It was indeed a flabbergasting moment the first time I saw the prints with my own eyes. This was the first time my photographs were used in a fully dedicated photography magazine.
