I was invited by Ron Lau (Olympus enthusiast) to participate in an official outing by Photographic Society of Petaling Jaya (PSPJ) last weekend. I went to a beach near Banting (about an hour and a half drive away from Kuala Lumpur) for some beach portraiture shoot, and of course to catch the sunset. There were nearly 40 members who joined this outing and it felt like a grand activity!
I was not so much of a model/portrait shooting kind of person so I shied away mostly when the model shoot was taking place. However when the sunset approaches, I went crazy with the shutter and gosh, I could not remember the last time I saw a sunset by the beach (well, it was about 2 months ago in Perth but that felt like a lifetime away). While I enjoyed shooting but being there out in the open, seeing the majestic sun being swallowed by the ocean, there is just some healing quality to it and I needed that after all the late nights and hectic city environment I spent most of my time in.
All images were taken with Olympus OM-D E-M5 or PEN E-PL5 and M.Zuiko lenses 75mm F1.8 or 9mm F8 Fisheye Bodycap lens.
