SUNSET AT BINTULU
March 26, 2008

Waiting for good light to appear for weeks. I guess, the presence of my Wife in Bintulu created the mood for a better photography outing. More effort given in finding good light and proper composition. Hence, these are the keepers.

1/1600 | f/13 | 80mm

Took 3 to 4 different exposures for this pict. started with f/2.8 but the background were too much out of focus.¬†when i saw the fisherman’s boat drifting slowly into the viewfinder, i realized that i need to get a greater depth of field. quickly dialed to f/13. love it.

1/800 | f/8 | 12mm

inspired by some beautiful pictures at fotobyimran, i tried to find the balance between the foreground and background, only to come out with 50:50 ratio of the horizon. i should have dodged the stones at the foreground

1/160 | f/9 | 12mm

Within minutes of the previous frame, i need to drag the shutter speed to a lower value due to the lack of light. It was a peaceful moment for both of us.

1/125 | f/4 | 12mm

A lil bit of fill in flash to light up my Wife. Tokina 12-24mm f/4 never failed me on flash photography. The best 3rd party lens I’ve ever encountered.

1/50 | f/4 | 12mm

Mounted my D70s on the structure (the one that my Wife put her hand on in the frame below) to serve as a tripod for self portraiture. I planned to buy a tripod later, but zulmaha was so kind to give me his extra tripod the other day. more self portraiture?

1/500 | f/2.8 | 200mm

At 200mm f/2.8, nothing could go wrong for me. the repetition of the structure gives the sense of space in this frame. got a few frames where the line were a bit diagonal but the composition were just too safe for instant. the fading light of the sun creates a light halo on my Wife.

1/50 | f/2.8| 100mm

a casual snapshot just before we go back. Taken by my Wife to test her handholding technique at slow shutterspeed. the weight of the 80-200mm f/2.8 push-pull lens can make her hand grow stronger :p
