Jayesslee in KL

Janice and Sonia also known as Jayesslee became popular on YouTube for their amazing covers. Yes, they are both twins and are from Australia. Their parents are from South Korea, that explains their Korean look.

I only came to know of Jayesslee for less than a month. After watching several of their covers on Youtube, I instantly like them!

On the 22nd of this month, Jayesslee came to Malaysia and performed in a one night concert at PWTC. I enjoyed the concert so much. It was awesome. I enjoyed all of their songs but one song in particular was my favorite, that is, ‘Dare To Move ‘ which is originally sang by Switchfoot.

I did catch them again the next day at City Harvest Church. They performed a few songs and shared with us their past and struggles. Listening to their sharing for the second time, I was encouraged. After service, Jayesslee had an autograph session. I managed to get their autographed signed and also a photo with them. So nice of them! 🙂

My best weekend ever! 🙂 Here are some photos of them.

I’m missing Jayesslee sooo much! They have amazing voices. They are gorgeous, goofy, inspiring, and they radiate so much positive energy.

Thank you Jayesslee! =) Hope that Jayesslee will return next year! Looking forward to thier first album! 🙂

Luit Waterfall

I hope I got the name right. I couldn’t get a result when searching for this waterfall on Google. I visited Luit Waterfall in the beginning of this month.

Luit is a nice waterfall, consisting of two cascading falls. There is a big pool below the fall, probably 20 meters in both length and width. I was too busy taking photos that I didn’t have time to wade in the pool.

The entrance of Luit Waterfall is located along B55 trunk road after Kuala Kubu Baru. As you drive along B55 towards Fraser Hills, turn off right at Kampung Pertak and drive on for 500m. The trail to Luit Waterfall is the same as to Bukit Kutu, before diverting left. (Please refer to map attached)

The trek was quite easy, gradual gradient. Although the trail isn’t steep, it is not a short hike. The waterfall is quite deep in. As we got deeper into the jungle, the trail became less and less distinct. We had difficulties finding our way.

Trails near waterfalls or rivers are infamous for leaches. True enough, there were armies of leaches along the trail! I was bitten four times! How nasty!

We took 3 hours to trek to the waterfall and 2 hours to return. Net ascension is 430 meters and trek distance is 7.4 km

Adorable Puppies

My friend recently brought his puppies over to my house for me to take photos of them. They are cute and very active. For the first 15 minutes, I had a difficult time nailing a good shot of them. They ran all over my garden. I allowed them to play and run around till they tire.

I used two lens, Canon 15-85 IS USM and Canon 50mm F/1.4 which I got a couple of months ago on a Canon 50D. I find the 50mm’s focusing system sluggish and I have to be very careful in selecting focus point when the aperture is wide open.

Since I don’t have any reflectors, I took the photos in the evening where the lighting is better. It worked well enough.

Here are a few of the shots I took.

Ps. Please click on picture for a clearer view, WordPress doesn’t display images clearly.

This is my favorite. But, I made a mistake of focusing on the paws rather than the eyes.

Good Life

This month is quite happening for me! Had a small test throughout the 2 weeks before the one week Merdeka-raya break. Coping with Alevels, wouldn’t say well, but at least I know what topics we are in now. 😀

This holiday is pretty fun and packed. I went to Morib Beach Resort for holidays last weekend with my classmates. There is a mini water theme park at the resort. The beach is not spectacular, but, during low tide in the night and the next morning, we could walk very far out from the beach.

I just realized how bad my badminton skills are. Played badminton on Wednesday at Challenger with my younger bro, Joel and Max. After an hour of badminton, I found out that I’m not the only one who sucks at badminton. We got tired of it because we were playing like little kids. So, we decided to have a game of table tennis. I know I’m quite good at it since I used to play on almost every weekend few years ago, until we spend more time picking up the ball then actually playing. HAHA! Epic… I’ll just stick to swimming and football next time. 😀

The next day, was even awesome-r! I went to lake gardens in the morning for a casual photo shooting session for my friends. They are getting married soon and wish to have some photos of them. Then, in the evening, we headed to Putrajaya for another session. The evening session was less productive, partly due to the rain and I ran out of ideas for posing styles. One of the main challenges of portrait shooting for me is the posing part, putting aside creative lighting. I used natural lighting, and didn’t really bother about creative lighting. Since this is my first time, I focused on the posing and try to make it look natural.

I’ll be posting the photos up soon! So, stay tuned! Gonna go for GAME OVER at my church tomorrow! Gonna be fun and tiring! 🙂

Here’s a nice song..

Selamat Hari Raya and Independence day! 🙂

Another Wedding Photoshoot!

Last week and this week have been good. My cousin is back for a while from UK. I ran in the 12km Men’s Health and Shape Run. Nothing much happened.

I had an enjoyable time shooting photos on this particular wedding. I did use the newly bought 50mm. It was fun to use, but I needed a very wide distance between me and the subject in order to take a full or half body photo.

Here are a few of the photos!

Canon 50mm 1.4 – Photos

Picture by kenrockwell.com

I have been playing with my camera fix with my new 50mm, nearly everyday! I just love the Bokeh effect it produces at wide aperture! 🙂

One of the disadvantages of the 50mm 1.4 is its magnification power is low. The minimum focusing distance is 0.45 meter, which is rather far for capturing smaller details. I don’t expect macro capabilities but, I prefer a shorter minimum focusing distance.

Here are another two photos shot with the 50mm 1.4 on a canon 50D. For best view, Please please Click on image for full size. WordPress has difficulty displaying scaled pictures well. It makes a very big difference.

Seiko

F/1.4 @ 1/100; ISO 400

Earphones

F/1.4 1/320; ISO 400

Another issue with this lens, image sharpness drops drastically further from the center. As you can see in the “earphones” photo above, the left earphone isn’t sharp.

I’ll be shooting another wedding this coming Saturday! Very excited! I’m quite sure the 50mm f1.4 will help me produce more stunning pictures! 🙂
