Birthday Month Here



This month many of my family members shall be celebrating their birthday including myself lah. So here I`m going to hint lah waht I would like to have as a present. Hope it`s not so obvious.
Images was taken between 10:30 am to 11:00 am, using Nikon D50 standard lens at focal length 55mm and minimum aperture possible, manual focus, 1/3 flash, 1 white A4 reflector and a tripod stand. Speed 500. No strong wind. Histogram excellent.
The images can be much better with a good macro lens. Then we can also see the pimples and the warts of the beetles.
A good macro can take better close up images where you can see the minor details.


Good landscape images will require a good polarizer filter like what Ikelah have. That`s why the skies look superb. I don`t have one yet but shall need one for my Jogjakarta trip this May. The sunrise at Borobudur and the sunset at Parangitis, I can already visualize the results.


Talking about the jogja trip, I`m getting worried. I found out Ikelah`s back will take sometime to get better. Now who`s gonna carry the bags?

I can`t carry all 4 person`s backpack and climb Borobudur?

    Lawo gambo. Pandai awok jjanji dengan kumbang tu yek. Lighting molek. Kumbang pon molek. Tok payoh ler cari lens lain, kawe nampok serbi kat kumbang tu; hok atas tu tengah kenyit mata dia pon kawe nampok. Kalau nampk ssampai ke jerawat/ jeragat kumbang, apa kejadohnya weii! Bior je gitu, molek amat doh tu!

    Boogey, awok toksoh ler bimbang pasal tok daya ngangkat beg kome. Koi rase ler, badan awok tu roit nok ngangkat segala sehinggakan ngangkat kita orng berempat dgn beg2 sekali panjat candi tu pon boleh gamoknya! Pasroh jer ler!

  • i am sorry to say, its rubbish. i agree with what you have written that you definately need a macro lens. i heard that in malaysia they do sell reasonably priced secondhand macro lens. i had gone to panglima's blog. he seems to be very rich with the girls and the boys, rich and famous. he can get you and ikelah the macro lens.

    i dont really like ikelah's macro actually... if one is not using a proper lens, how can he bring out the subject from the background? i was panglima's tortise picture, it really stands out. Happy birthday and hope you will get the lens and filter.

  • So Boogey,

    After reading this entry and trying to catch your hint, I am confused. What in the world would you want a beetle for your birthday? I suppose you need more bugs as the subjects for your pics ahh??

  • DITH,
    Walau pun nampok gayanya macam tak dapat menda puin, kawe nunggu jugok lar mana tau ada yang lembut hati last minit. Bila dekat dekat birthday ni ramai pulok yang tulis blog bercakap pasal zuhud, pasal hakikat makrifat ni yek? Galak bertasawuf seme yek? Saper yek?

    Aki Andak,
    Kawe memang berdoa jugak mintak lens bagus dengan polar filter getek. Tu lar Tuhan nok tunjuk cara, dia bagi abang dengan kak ipor untuk belikan gamoknya.

    Yamashita,
    I`m actually not a macro person, I prefer lifestyle and potraits. Pang5 photos are mostly on lifestyle also but he is especially good in post production as you can see in his works.

    Blondest blonde,
    You are a very interesting person, very out of the box. Everybody including Aki Andak got the hint but you got you mind set on the bugs. You are really authentic. We don`t have true blonds here in Malaysia you know.

  • Not into Macro pics. I prefer landscape. When I feel up to it will get a good wideangle and perhaps a telescopic one. We will see.....

  • Kawe kasik birthday greetings kosong je lah. Kalau nak hadiah exotica suruh Pang5 bawak balik biskut Portugis. Or ikan Portugis. Or sos peri-peri Portugis. Hehehe.

  • kenakelayan, kalau takat sos peri-peri tak yah dari lisbon... kat nando's ada banyak. kat klcc pun ada nando's. kalau bawak balik dari sini karang.. basi lak. tak fresh... tak sedap.
