NP: Bay By Night

Bay By Night
This is the challenging image to create, I was testing something I have never done before, which is putting my fenix PD32UE flashlight into water and illuminate the underwater rocks, this area is quite dark and I was bumping on the rocks couple of time and got my bare foot a deep cut. If you light-paint from above the water, you will get tons of reflection and won't be able to reveal the rocks underneath the water.

Anyway I'm happy with the outcome since it's the first time experimenting with underwater light-painting, painful but worthwhile.

More to come in future.

NP: KK Seascape

Enchanted Seascape
The location is at my home town Kuala Kurau, this bay area is famous of sunset and considered a place that is shoot to dead, I want to do something different, which is shooting this location at night instead of sunset period, and after carefully composing the scene, waited till the sun go down, I started to light-paint with my protomachines light.

In order to make the image more dramatic, I light-painted the foreground with warm colour against the cool colour background(which I can't change anyway), and got this image after couple of tries.

By the way, happy new year 2014 ;)
