Its Pissing Down in KL

The weather has been quite harsh in Kuala Lumpur recently, starting off with unforgiving hot morning, and ending with late afternoon insane heavy downpour. Rain or shine, as long as the fingers are itching for some shutter clicking action, I will be out there shooting. Obviously when it was raining down too heavily, I would not be crazy enough to sacrifice my gear. When the rain slowed down to drizzle, armed with an umbrella on my left hand and the camera on the other, I roamed the streets attacking some interesting characters caught in bad KL weather. 

All images were taken with Sony Alpha A350 and DT lenses 50mm F1.8 and 18-70mm kit lens

  1. Another good reason to return to Olympus! Your E-5 is weather sealed. So is the OMD. I don't know much about your climate, but I couldn't do without weather sealing where I live.

  2. Hey Dwight,

  3. Hey Robin, seem like the E-5 combo taking better image especially in the bad weather condition. Nevertheless, your ability to catch the moment of image you want is what a photographer needed.

    1. Hey Francis,
      For sure the E-5 fares better in harsher weather !! But then again we don't always torture ourselves in bad weather !

  4. Hi Robin, nice B&W PP. I'm following the comments regarding you shooting Sony combo from the beginning, I must say there are many people that are brand-dependent, I don't want to offend anyone with this, but it's not the gear that makes a photographer. I'm sure you'll take great pictures with any camera-brand, your street shooting is something outstanding in my vision.
