In the world of mist


I have been absent for 3 months ++ for night photography due to the changes of my daily job. And year 2015 seems to be bright one for my night photography journey as me and my friend have put up the schedule to shoot at night in various locations.

One of the location is always filled with fogs and I'm glad to make the trip to shoot there, we have made the plan to revisit the location soon.

Hopefully this year will be a productive one in term of night photography!

Mike Butler: Large scale light painting

I learned about his work when youtubing blindly, and one of his project really caught my attention, if you are the fan of night photography, check out Mike Butler's architectural works and his precise lighting technique in large scale environment -


You can find him at http://www.mike-butler.com/

Great inspiration nonetheless!

NP: Good stuff must share

Accidentally bump into this Lensflare 35 "Interview with Troy Paiva" video, would like to share it out as Troy has talked a lot about the story/idea behind his night images.

Hope we all learn something from it, cheers!

Kuang At Night


This is captured at the lake in Kuang, Selangor, like the foreground decay with green colour cast of water(green light source from the restaurant nearby) against the orangish background.

Everything looks just sick.

NP: Parking With Style


This is not the type of composition I usually make, but I think it works great with strong lines and forms for both foreground and background subjects, the red colour really stands up and give enough visual balance to me.

This image is taken at Koh Samui, Thailand, you should not miss this place if you are traveller.

Night Photography Asia Community(NPAC)

I have known Martin for quite a while and we have been talking about running the Night Photography community, and finally we do. We have just started the community - Night Photography Asia Community(NPAC), this community is aimed to promote Night Photography so as to inspire and create awareness in Asia regions.

Why are we doing this? The answer is simple, both me and Martin have seen many night images from US/Europe but in Asia, we hardly see any serious amateur who spend their time on Night Photography crafts, and hopefully this community will encourage more people to do Night Photography and share their beautiful night photographs especially in Asia. Even though Night Photography is never a mainstream, but I don't think we are alone in this, for sure we can find more like minded people once there's a community to hang out.


Where can you find the community?

Feel free to join us, all you need is flickr account. We also have facebook page setup here -

Hopefully with this community we see more people doing night photography in Asia.

NP: Lake Toba(Samusir Island)

It's not my priority to do night photography over there as this is my holiday trip to Lake Toba and Medan, Indonesia, however I can't resist to do so, I'm keen to go back there again for the purpose of night photography in future because there are so much to explore.

I don't have many takes but 3, there you go -
The Majestic Gate
Zed's Horns
The Traditionalism
You can obviously see the roof of the house has very unique design, it has very strong diagonal shape, which actually symbolizing the horns of buffalo. If you ever visit there, you may also find their graveyard is just built nearby their home, which I have never seen in any other place thus far, I did ask the local about the graveyard, they call it "Future House". I would like to pay respect to them and making a series of night images if possible next time. Another worthy look is church, there are so many churches you can find around the area and all of them are unique in their own way.

All and all, good holidays!
