  • From Cuba with Love

    From Cuba with Love

    I was blessed to have been able to visit Cuba last month on our final PhotoSafari for 2014. I had wanted go to Cuba for so long, but unfounded apprehensions prevented me from doing so. Now that Iíve been there, I realize I should have gone much earlier. I will not be making the same mistake again for North Korea. We will be organizing a PhotoSafari to North Korea from 29th May to 5th June this year, after we come back from my two back to back PhotoSafaris to Iceland from 23-31 March, and 2 to 10 April 2015. In case you want to join me in Iceland, I still have two places available because of a late withdrawal by a husband and wife team.

    herobear - aka - Haikal


    Here is the interview with him:


    Can you tell us a little about yourself?


    Firstly, thank you Mr.Noordin for this opportunity to be featured here. I don't consider myself a 'pro' so to have somebody recognize my work is quite overwhelming.




    Sepang 2013


    My name is Haikal, 29 years old and currently am working as a senior communications executive at an event management company which specializes in motorsports, five years running. Hence if you look me up on pm, you will find that I post a fair amount of motorsports related photography, although technically I am not paid to do so. Besides that, I enjoy travelling. Feel free to check out my work at my haikalb.photoshelter.com

  • Buscalan - A Trip to Remember by Noni Abdullah

    Buscalan - A Trip to Remember by Noni Abdullah

    A couple of weeks ago, we were lucky enough to go on a short photo trip Ė 17 of us, led by Maxby and Yusuf + the incredible Filipino hosts, Dexter, Henry, Kenneth, Batchoy, Ruel, Dada, who not only showed us their hidden country gems but saved me from being lost finding my way back to the hotel (well, thatís another story), lending me a walking pole and cooking for us too! From the Unesco World Heritage Site of the Banaue Rice Terraces to the Sagada Hanging Coffins, nothing beat the more memorable journey to stay the night in Buscalan, the home of the Kalinga tribe in the Cordilera mountains. In 3 coaches bound, the long ride, peppered by coffee breaks and leg stretches was suddenly off the mark, as a landslide occurred on the way and the diggers and heavy machinery were still compacting the rocks and debris....

    Today was a special day .......

    The Red Bull Air Race World Championship will be back in the skies in February 2014, with a full seven-race World Championship to be staged in 6 countries on 3 continents. This was announced at a special world-wide press conference in Putrajaya this morning. The airspace over Putrajaya Lake will be the venue for the Malaysian Leg of the Red Bull Air Races for the next Three Years. Its a coup of sorts for Malaysia to be selected as one of the seven venues for this prestigious international sporting event. Red Bull Air Race is the equivalent of the Formula One series on land run by that by Bernie Ecclestone character, except this one is a Formula One Race in the air. And the Bernie Ecclestone of the Red Bull Air Race in Malaysia is my son-in-law. So I got TWO passes. One is a VIP Guest Pass Number 0002, which gave me certain privileges at the event, and the o...

    The Daasanachs of the Omo Delta and Lake Turkana

    Here's a photo of a Daasanach mother feeding two babies, one of which probably belongs to a close relative.

    The Daasanachs are an Agropastoral Cusheetic tribe living on the delta of the Omo River where it flows into Lake Turkana. They grow sorghum and maize and beans and they keep cattle and goats. The poorer Daasanachs who have lost their cattle to drought and disease, hunt crocodiles and are fishermen in the Omo River and Lake Turkhana. They trade crocodile meat and fish in return for meat from those who have cattle. The...

  • The Karos of the Omo Valley

    The Karos of the Omo Valley

    Here's a triptych of the Karos of Ethiopia, a tribal group living on the banks of the Omo River. They have very strong traditions, and like the Mursis, they are fond of decorating their bodies with body paint. However, there is a slight difference. In addition to body painting, the Karos also have extensive scarring on their bodies as body decoration.

    During childhood Karos women allow elders to cut scars in their bodies and stomachs. These wounds are then rubbed with ash in order to produce a raised scar. These scars are c...

    Mursi Women ...

    The Mursis are semi-nomadic people living in the Omo Valley in Southern Ethiopia. Their women wear disc plates in their lips and in their ear lobes. Holes are made in the lower lip and ears when they are around 10 years old. A wooden peg is placed in the hole which is gradually enlarged as they grow older, with larger and larger clay plates. The two lower front teeth are pulled out in order to accommodate the plate. It is thought the origin of this mutilation is to make them unattractive to protect them from slave traders. The ornaments hanging from her ears are Hippo tusks. Both women and men mutilate their bodies as scars are considered...

  • Komodo Islands, A wide angle tour

    Komodo Islands, A wide angle tour

    I don't shoot seascapes as often as I would like. I just love the detail macro offers and the type of dives it involves (critter hunting, etc). My preference when shooting wide usually involves large subjects such as mantas or sharks. I find it more challenging to shoot moving marine creatures rather than static seascapes However, now and then, a location comes up where the seascapes are just fantastic. Even without big creatures, I am still able to get photos that put a smile on my face..... Komodo in Indonesia was one such place. I was lucky enough to be invited to shoot on assignment for Ombak Biru liveaboard vessel (aka...

  • Exposure Blending and Refining The Edge.
    irenecal
    I'm sure many of you have seen pictures especially Landscapes. The Transition between Sky and Foreground. The Bright and the Dark transition. If you look carefully,you will notice a carefully processed one and the less careful. The Less careful ones are the halos which some may say its ok. To me its not natural to look. That is what I wish to perfect. What I'll be sharing here is to reinforce what I understandÖit took me quite awhile to digest. I'm not perfect.Its troubling me for some time. Having A GND Filter or No Filter method? As long as it gets the job done faster choose which workflow you feel comfortable with. In the end is the final outcome of the picture. Below will be in a series and breaks here,through pictures and explanation. I myself can return for reference and comprehend if I forget the steps. I don`t write it down or explain I will forget. There may be shortcuts here and there though.Feel free to sh...

  • Sony Alpha 7 only manages to get a Silver Award
    maxby


    This is the technical tests that many photographers have been waiting for. The Sony Alpha 7, the smallest full frame mirror-less digital camera. Many have raved about its capability. See how does it stand to a technical review by Dpreview.

    This is what Dpreview has to say :- The Alpha 7 has broken new ground in the full-frame market, in terms of both size and price. Its compact size, broad feature set and very good Raw image quality make it a compelling option for those wanting a large sensor. Unfortunately,...
