Shutter Therapy In My Hometown, Kuching (Borneo)

I had a week long trip home to Kuching in East Malaysia for Olympus Workshops and events,  and I managed to squeeze a bit of time for shutter therapy. I also thought it would be cool for me to show you beautiful people how my hometown is through moving pictures, instead of just stills! So for the first time, I have  video, showing you my street hunting locations around the central city area in Kuching. It was a brief morning walk, covering only a few spots and I wish I had more time to do more.  Certainly this will  not be the last video about Kuching, and I look forward to doing more "shutter therapy" series of videos, sharing mostly behind the scenes of what happened in each photo and how I captured them.

I personally love Kuching and it is a wonderful place for street photography. There are old colonial building design from the Brooke Family governance era, remnants of the past well preserved, being beautifully integrated within the city area itself. There is mixture of Chinese and Muslim architectural influences as well, seeing temples and mosques being at close proximity to each other. People are always warm and friendly here, and the streets are less congested in comparison to larger cities like Kuala Lumpur. The vibe is differently here, there is a sense of calm and definitely things are moving at a slower pace here.

I roamed around the streets with Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm F1.2 PRO lens on OM-D E-M1 Mark II this time. I did sneak in a shot taken with 45mm F1.8 in the video.

If you do come to Malaysia, and you are not in a rush, consider stopping by Kuching in Borneo. You won't regret it, I promise!
