Today is the day I kick-off this blog. It will be a place to share my passion for photography, which I’m pretty much into these days. A place to share my life with everyone around me, and to those I am yet to meet. My portfolios of photos are available at http://www.flickr.com/photos/gregemmanuel/sets/.
I currently own an EOS Canon 1000D, which I feel i have mastered pretty well in the almost 2 years that i have owned it. One of my greatest achievement by far is getting one of my photos published in Digital Camera Magazine (April 2010 Malaysia Edition).
This image was captured very early on a Saturday morning from Penang Island. It was taken just as the sun was bridging the horizon. The long shutter allowed me to get good smooth sea with wonderful reflections of the buildings. Plus if you noticed in the horizon, the mainland port is being lit with its activity also brings out silhouettes of the ships at sea.
Besides the occasional landscape outing, I have been on a number of photography assignments like pre-wedding, actual-day wedding, portraiture sessions, and events.
I have been building my skills and learning photography from internet websites, photography forums, books, but most importantly from TT’s (aka Table Talks) with good friends from ShutterAsia. I would definitely name two people who have spurred me on the road of improvement, and those two people are Kevin Chooi and Ridzuan Ismail who are masters in their own field. Not to mention all my photography friends who I enjoy spending time with taking great photos. Your critics are always greatly appreciated. 🙂
New adventures awaits me i foresee…An adventure I’m really looking forward to.
Stay tuned to view the history of my photography journey and also to my new endeavors ….and so the saga begins….
