Berbulan dah berharap ank capture lightning shots tapi tak pernah dpt. Dangerous, yes but I had to try. It's something that's been nagging at me for a while now.. hehe.. :)
Hujan dah mula turun.... rintik2... aku siap dgn kamera dlm kereta masa tu... menunggu... toleh sana, toleh sini... tgk langit.... aku di tepi highway, kat one of them small rest area...
Then I saw the flashes.... my heart was jumping for joy... dap dup dap dup...
Haha.. crazy I know, getting all excited about lightning... hehe... :)
Waited and snapped and snapped and snapped...
Inilah hasilnya. Not much really.... pitiful I know.... tapi yg penting attempted. I learned heaps from that experience :)
Dah baring dah nak tido masa tu, tetiba nampak flashes of light kat tingkap bilik. Yay!! Lighting!! Wife dah tido dah masa tu. Senyap2 pegi ambik tripod dan camera dan set up kat balcony. Dan ini lah hasilnya... :)
I'm quite happy with these actually although I did not get that many good lightning shots. I kinda like the brewing storm within the clouds... :)
Keluar je dari basement parking kat office ternampak dark clouds nun jauh di horizon. Secretly I wished for lightning :). Sampai rumah dah gelap. Traffic jam teruk betul. Lenguh satu badan. Sampai je terus lari ke rumah dan ambil peralatan. Set up dan point ke arah bukit yg kebetulan tgh ader petir sambar menyambar directly above it. View ni dari my apartment actually.
And here was the result. Alhamdulliah.. akhirnya dpt gak lightning yg full spread.
Pas ari tu dah tak ambik petir lagi dah. Seram sebenarnya. Meremang. Pulak tu kan tripod dan camera tu are pointy objects. Tapi kalau from safe distance tak per.
Pengalaman yg best... agar aku tidak lupa.... :)

THE LAST PICTURE REALLY NICE...TAHNIAH SEBAB RAJIN MENCUBA....PRACTICE MAKE PERFECT...KAN ABG KAN????ReplyDelete
Hehe... thanks Chef :). Masa dpt that last photo tu I remembered I tersengih gumbira sorang2 masa tu.. hehe :). Seronok sebab at last dpt jugak yg di idamkan...ReplyDelete
Agreed, dlm hal ni memang perlu byk latihan, lots of trials and errors.. maklum je la I ni belajar fotografi sendiri2 jek... baca magazines, books and surf the net ;)
You can check with Meteorology Department, those guys that predicts and never get fired for their wrong prediction. lols.ReplyDelete
They can tell you which area in Malaysia have the most lightning occurrence. That will be easier kan?
Really Hazrey? Wow... tak terfikir pun nak tanya Met Dept. Really they can give out info cam tu? Best nya. That would definitely be easier :)ReplyDelete
*hmmm... me planning next photographic excursion 'Cubaan ke 4'...**
I have an idea.ReplyDelete
The best picture you should be taking is me, me and me. Hahaha.. damn.. nanti kena bayor la pulak.
Wanna hear a funny story? Bought a used 30D, new tele, macro, flash etc etc... last last masuk dalam dry box sebab sibuk nak mampus. Hahah...
Tunggu sedara mara kahwin, nak buat experiment. kah kah kah, they will be my guinea pig. Ehh pig haram, nanti kena selsema.
I like that idea! Let's do feature... on you shall we? :)ReplyDelete
Like, do you have your best side? What's the concept like? How would you like to be portrayed? Like an urban metrosexual guy? Rough biker dude who chain smoke? [Dunhill right?].
Come on.... work with me bro...
You have a 30D and all those lenses and you just keep them? That's downright abomination, I'd say.. haha :D. Oh man, you've gotta get out there and be one with your camera. Feel it, touch it, use it. And you'll never have anything more satisfying... well, there is one other thing that could come close to the kind of satisfaction I'm referring to... ;). Anyway, weekend2 go la shooting kat park ker, pantai ker, sunset ker... better yet I'd love me some of your photojournalistic images. I'm just crazy about them. How a single shot could tell so much! Share some can ah bro?
No pig farms near where you're staying right?
dulu sekali ujan lebat, ada kilat petir. Wah dgn fenuh ferasaan tunggu punya tunggu punya tunggu nak snap.. datang nye tidak.. berdentum dentang je kat tempat lain.. stress lah hehee..ReplyDelete
Teruskan usaha Ben tu. Satu hari insyaAllah dpt le. Tapi mesti ingat ya, pls ensure it is absolutely safe ok...ReplyDelete
Syed: hahaha, yeah, i breed pigs. They are adorable too. hahah..ReplyDelete
You wanna feature me? lols, that will be the last thing you wanna do bro. Abiskan memory camera jek. hahaha. Camera shy lah bro. Tak photogenic.
Yeah, got no time lah, assignment berlambak lambak. From one to another, back to back. Pengsan. Like today, pagi MB Johor kena saman, petang 9 orang mati lemas. Kena potong sepuluh camni.
By the way, I saw one of the pix in JB, were you in JB or you are in JB?
Also, normally petir tak akan berlaku di tempat yang sama spontaneously. ia akan berpindah. Yelah nak pi panah setan setan tu semua kan.
salam...mashaAllah nice photo..wan to see more..but hati2 dgn petir kReplyDelete
Hazrey, I dok kat Ampang. Pix JB tu shot masa ader kat keje kat situ :).ReplyDelete
Errkkk.. dah ader cases di Thailand and Singapore la.... takutt...
Most definitely mesti buat feature about you la. I am very fascinated by the kind of work you do, the unGodly hours of worktime, the bizarre incidents you have to cover.... La ni pun I dah ader byk soalan2 nak tanya, soalan yg potentially mungkin ramai berminat nak tau jawapannya. Contohnya: Bagaimana mulanya En.Hazrey terjerumus dlm kancah kewartawanan ni? Have you grown jaded by the violent crimes in Malaysia or do you still gasps and shake your head in disbelief? etc etc.
You tak photogenic I boleh kasi nampak hensem and potentially make you look like a 'horny booster'. It'll be tough though I reckon but I am up for the challenge. Oh come on, unless you look like a troll, I think I'll be able to make you look fabu :).
Betul tu, petir memang gerak2 merata. Tapi kalau kena time masa I shoot that last pic, agak lama juga petir sabung menyabung kat situ. Now after you said about setan2 tu, agaknya byk benor setan2 kat situ masa tu kot... hmmmm...
Hi Arsaili :). Welcome to my humbe abode...ReplyDelete
Terima kasih for your appreciation... InsyaAllah I shall continue to posts more photos here. Betul tu, nak shoot petir kena la sgt2 berhati. Pernah one time tu, kilat memang tgh sambar menyambar dgn gemilang dan sure cantik sgt kalau dpt a few shots. But I tak berani. They were too near. Brrrr.....
I fikir tak dpt masa tu InsyaAllah dpt masa lain.
lawa gambo petir tuh..
kalau da minat memang xleh nak kata la keje gila atau x..hehe..
