Night Portrait

Exposure: Aperture F8|Shutter Speed 30s|ISO 100
For the fun of it ;)

Thought process: It's about having fun when shooting people at night, this is not done outdoor but indoor, I just use strobe and punch the light from left and right, setting at 1/2 power. The reason is to bring out the texture and the shape of both people and background, having him seated like a psycho, the real challenge is my friend needs to sit still for 30 seconds and he is like a rock during exposure time.

MNS: China Town Surrounding

Exposure: Aperture F11|Shutter Speed 25s|ISO 100
A lot of countries have China Town, so do Myanmar.

Thought Process: Looking up, generates the view of "importance", there are couple of buildings looking exactly like this one, I just like the architectural look of them. It is chopped at the bottom when I frame it because the road is quite busy and it generates too much attention if I include them, all I want is to show is this particular building at night, simple as that.

MNS: Kandawgyi Wheel Bridge

Exposure: Aperture F8|Shutter Speed 0.4s|ISO 800
Walking around Kandawgyi Lake, you will always find interesting subjects to shoot, it is kind of bringing you back to old time where you can find a lot of hard light around the area with overlapping shadows.

Thought process: Very quick on this one, I captured the wheel bridge with handheld once I see it, visually it reminds me of Film Noir world. I'm always the fan, they always tell the story using the shape and contrast, their light sculpting techniques are yet to learn for me.
