It’s got floyd rose bridge so it’s metal-ready axe!, perfect for that dive bomb whammy!

This guitar is pretty light. And no, I didn’t try plugging it to an amp so I don’t how it sounds like, but I’ll bet it sounds killer!!

I used my Canon 5dmk3 with sigma 35mm and 1 x speedlite to shot these photos. Sigma lens is amazingly sharp.

 

Thanks for reading.


Chaos Divine LIVE at Amplifier – 24 AUG 2012

Last Friday night I had a chance to photoshoot this awesome band at Amplifier.

Lighting is very dark! Well, it is normal for this kinda genre (metal).

These guys remind me of TOOL but in a melodic, atmospheric kinda way.

Lotsa head banging involved 🙂

Camera used:

Canon 5Dmk2

Lens:

Canon 70-200mm F2.8L

 Extra lighting:

Canon speedlite 530EXII

Serial Killer Smile LIVE @Amplifier Capitol – 24 AUG 2012

These guys were opening up for CHAOS DIVINE.

The venue (Amplifier Capitol) wasn’t packed so I was able to roam around very close to the stage. I didn’t need my speedlite to snap these photos.

I really enjoyed watching/listening these guys.

House VS Hurricane @ The Amplifiers – 11th AUG 2012

I am now part of AMN (Australian Musicians Network).

Last week I had the opportunity to shoot a Metal core – Melbourne group called – House VS Hurricane.

The venue was super packed, audience were jumping, screaming, stage diving, haha it was fun night. And no,  I didn’t stage dive … i got my camera with me :p

It was pitched black, the only lighting came from stage lighting. I had to crank up my ISO to 5000. I guess my 5Dmk2 can handle high ISO *NICE* 🙂

Joel & Shelley Family Portrait Photoshoot

The photo shooting was taken in South Perth Esplanade, Perth-WA.

I got there about 9AM, scouting around the area finding some spots to shoot.

At about 10AM the clients arrived! Joel and Shelley were awesome clients.

They know what particular pose that they want, but at the same time they’re easily followed my direction as well.

The best shot of the day!!

It was a beautiful day, sun was shining quite bright and a bit warm actually.

I’m very happy with the results came out. The clients are happy!! all good!

Alken & Lay Family Photoshoots

They are one of our good friends and I shall give them the best family photos that I can take 🙂

The photo shooting was taken in East Perth area. One of the well-known areas for photoshooting.

I knew that it’s going to be drizzling in the morning. So, we were rushing to get there.

As we got out of our cars, it drizzled. I thought, oh well, let’s do it next time and they kinda agree too.

But, they’ve dressed nicely for the photo shooting. I don’t want to leave with disappointment. oh well a bit drops of rain wouldn’t hurt my camera :p

This is my fav snap of the day!

The kids were well behaved (that’s the most important thing!) and so the photoshooting took about 15-20minutes.

Very happy with the result.

Here’s the snap:

Anyone hungry? check out this fine Japanese Restaurant!

I had the opportunity to shoot my friend’s restaurant. It’s called … SHIRO IZAKAYA Japanese Restaurant.

Located in the central of Perth, 150c St Georges Terrace Central Park, Hay Street.

Fine Japanese Cuisine at its best!! If you guys in Perth, WA you have to try this! it’s a must 😀


It’s a perfect place for couple who want to spend a romantic dinner over-seeing nice view of the city. The lighting really set the mood.

Camera used:

Canon 5Dmk2

Lens:

Canon 16-35mm F2.8L

Additional lighting:

Canon 580EXII

I didn’t use much flash during the shooting, because I didn’t it. My 5Dmk2 handles low lighting shooting really well. I only used it for the food close-up shoot.

Regurgitators | @Indi Bar- Perth Feb 2012

Regurgitator or we call them The gurgs were awesome!

They played classic 90’s songs, all the way to their newer stuff.

The club was PACKED!! I stood in 1 spot all through the set.

My fav song of the night was … *excuse me ‘arsehole’. That is the name of the song 🙂

Everyone were jumping and pushing around, lucky i didnt get pushed. As I was standing far left of the stage (haha i’m smart!!)

Immortal Technique feat. Akir & Poison Pen 14th Jan 2012 @ Villa

The music was pumping and the venue was tightly packed towards the final act.

I was standing on an elevated floor and used my 70-200mm glass to shoot the last performance …

Had a bit of drama with the lighting as it’s got too much ‘blue’, ‘red’ light going on and … it was like pretty dark.

Spent pretty long time editing the photos and had to ditch quite a few bad ones.

Indonesian Safari

We’ve decided to spent a day to see wild animals. Fed the elephants, deers, camels, etc. NO! we didn’t feed the lions and tigers! lol

Perth Zoo is nothing compares to Safari, Indonesia!! There were at least 5 lions in the safari, Indonesia and there is only 1 lion in the Perth Zoo.

We were really having a good time.

Caught a tiger in ‘his private time’

The lion and his mates!!

what’s that!!

Camera used:

Sony Alpha350

Hoping to come back again next year, here are the snaps!

Some more photos from Jakarta-2011!!

Living in Jakarta-Indonesia is tough! Many of us who are really blessed to live in a nice cozy home with a roof above our heads are indeed have to look down and see how we can help those who are in need.

On the contrary, there are ‘many’ rich-high-class people who drive Benzy, beemer and to my surpise i saw ‘porsche’ car not too far from where i took these photos.

Jakarta is a big city. To be honest I’m not so sure I wanna live here (Jakarta) anymore. I’m so used with Perth-Australia 🙂 yep, i’m an Australian mate!!

I love playing around my Lightroom to give these ‘old’ photos kind feel.

Enough mumbling from me, here are the pics

‘Till next time
