It was a glorious morning. I walked out of my house to be greeted by morning dew covered leaves, flowers, cars and damp road. Our drive to the park was uneventful. The only exciting part was when we missed the newly opened flyover and had to take an alternative route.

The park was beautiful. Neat, clean and just the occasional empty bottles and cups lying around because of one or two irresponsible people. Other than that, there were quite a number of people living the healthy lifestyle.

We wasted no time trying to catch the morning light, but the sun played hide and seek throughout the morning. This was one of the first few RM388 Portraits Promotion sessions.

The park was filled with people from all walks of life. Most of them came with their kids… and some with their doggies.

It was indeed a challenge to frame the subject and the background without the crowd.

but we managed anyways. Most of them were courteous enough to move out of the way or wait for us to click. Thanks guys :)

When the sun become a little bit too overwhelming to stay out in the park, we moved indoors. A quick of change of clothes later, we were back in action!

It was a quick and fun photoshoot. It was still morning when the photoshoot concluded, so to end the photoshoot…

.. a nice hearty breakfast…

.. and a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

What a great Sunday morning! Met up with two wonderful people, one of whom is Jason’s long lost colleague, while the other is someone from my kampung! Talk about coincidence! Plus, we had a nice morning walk around the park (while photoshooting) and finally a nice healthy breakfast. And we were back home before the morning was over!

Ahhh… all Sunday mornings should be like this :)

It was dark when we loaded up our gears into the car. We were scheduled to do a photoshoot at a very exclusive hotel up in the hills. And with only a couple of hours open for us to work our magic, we wanted to ensure that we make full use of those couple of hours.

We stopped by McDonald’s to have a nice hearty breakfast. We would not be able to have anything else until lunch.

And it was still dark out when we continued our journey up north.

And when light came, the skies got a little gloomy. Which is a good thing actually. Not too hot. :) We at FingerOnShutter do not like the heat. hahaha. We prefer the cold.

After the long straight comfortable road of the highway, we ventured into the narrower and with much more twists and turn roads up to Cameron Highlands.

Finally after about.. erm.. i am not sure actually.. but about 3-4 hours later, we arrived at the exclusive hotel. Very nice actually. And the nice cool weather makes sure that we do not have to wring our face towels……

.. like this. It was one of the most comfortable shoots ever for us. Remember, we love the cold. The colder the better :)

Here we see the groom himself taking up his trusty Canon to photograph his wife getting ready.

The groom… from squeezing between the chair and wall for his angle.

He is an avid photographer as well. He was rather busy with his camera that day.

No photos please. Interesting t-shirt. Fortunately what he wears does not relate directly to how he thinks. He’s not very camera shy.

Somehow I like the effect of this photo. 24mm @ f1.8 gives a unique and interesting view and bokeh.

The hotel had plenty of place for us to hang out while waiting for the bride to get ready.

This is Ming… our make up artist for the day :)

After the whole day of driving and photoshooting, we decided to call it a day and proceeded up to the top of the hill.

Oh.. sorry. We forgot that we had this for our quick lunch. Actually we wanted to have something big. But due to time constraints, we decided to have something quick, but nice.

We proceeded to head to the night market to pick up some vegetables, corns and other stuff not usually or readily available in KL. On the way…

We encountered this very long queue of cars, which was about 1-2km long queueing up to the night market. This is crazy! But it was not that bad. We reached the night market about 10-15 minutes later. What was worse was the parking. Oh… my. Our lucky stars must be shining upon us that moment as a car was just reversing out of a park as we were passing by. *phew*

We stayed the night.

It was kind of a cosy place. This photo was taken early the next morning. Nice sun, cooling weather. Ahhh…. bliss.

After a nice hearty breakfast, we packed, and continued photoshooting the bride and groom.

Had nice little quick lunch at Mary Brown and a little web surfing, and we were headed back to KL!

It was a fun trip. A successful photoshoot. And a refreshing break from the city. We are currently working on some of the photos from the photoshoot. We will be uploading them very soon. So check back often ok?


Oh.. by the way, some of the photos here are taken by HTC Legend using the ‘Lomo’ effect camera application :)
