MNS: Mafia Ride

I have never seen this type of car in Malaysia, and it's rare in Myanmar as well, with black colour outlook it looks rock solid and reminds me of Mafia movie. While I love to shoot the car I have to confess I really don't know what car is this, whoever knows the car ID please let me know.

I'm looking for symmetric here, it's tough to balance the light painting on this one because of existing light on camera right, I have used strobe(SB700) instead of flashlight, punch the light from (more on)camera left and (less on)right. Those rocks in the front are lit by existing light.

It's very hard to miss this beast, if you ever seen one.

MNS: The Joker

Our imagination runs wild when there are less noise at night, and seeing something out of its original context can be quite fun. The green and the red are always the symbolic colors of Joker to me which projects strong eerie atmosphere.

By the way, where's the Batman?

Night Photography: Street Light

I'm always wondering how bright street light is as the environment I used to take night images are always "bundled" with them, and found this interesting information in the internet, would like to share it here in case anyone is interested -

While street light is extremely strong(look at the lumens it produced), we can always overpower it easily, and using strobe is definitely not a problem, if you want to overpower street light with flashlight(imagine most of flashlight we have are in between of 1-250 lumens), as long as our subject is not too closed to street light or in the shade, we can do so easily.
