The beauty of natural light
This scenery was taken on the 27th August 2005 at about 7.07 pm in Ampang. We had just arrived, with the supposed sighting of Mars tonight was the talk of the weekend besides Sarah's flight on the next day still lingering in our heads.
The light was beautiful, a mixture of orange and red with heavy clouds on the foreground. One can see the KL tower and the twin towers as silhouettes on a colourful background. Photography, an art of composing with the correct lighting. Its not that difficult to get a good subject but the question is; where to place the subject? is the light right and adequate? Natural light or from a flash gun?
All my kids have great interest in photography equipped with 'adequate' cameras. Not just a point and shoot, but with manual adjustment to create excellent images. Its an art easy to learn but difficult to master, and of course talent is a great advantage.
