I have made friends with many interesting people lately. One of them is Thian Jin, who has just recently purchased the Olympus E-5, and if you were there to see him in person, you can unmistakenly feel overwhelming amount of joy bursting out from his facial expression. Such intense happiness can only be reflected by following shutter therapy session, which he asked me to join him at the Zoo Negara.
Thian Jin shooting with Olympus E-5 and 70-300mm F4-5.6.
Taken with E-5 and 40-150mm F3.5-4.5.
I saw the glorious morning light shining down on him, creating an ethereal aura surrounding him, highlighting his hair and of course, the E-5 and 70-300mm. The harsh glow at the top of the 70-300mm F4-5.6's lens hood was the perfect icing on the cake. Thian Jin did not even realize I snapped this shot. It was as if the Olympus gear received some sort of blessings from the heavens !! Alright, I am on imagination overdrive mode, but do forgive me, for the weekend is almost over.
Sometimes, simple lighting works best. Observing, understanding the quality and direction of light really helped to improve photography. I am still very, very new to this genre, and boy, do I wish to venture deeper into people/portraiture photography !!
