Jalan Tun HS Lee, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I came across a television program introducing this street named Jalan Tun HS Lee in downtown Kuala Lumpur. Since my dad have not walk through it thoroughly before, we made a visit over there. Since my dad need my help in guiding his way, I have not much time to grab better shots of the small details along the street. Here are some to share.

Yong Bee - an oldtimer coffee shop
Yong Bee is an oldtimer coffee shop operated by a Chinese old man. This shop is located at the junction where Jalan Tun HS Lee intersects with Jalan Sultan. The shop, like the 3rd photo above, is extremely narrow compared to the shops around; all due to the expansion of the street, Jalan Sultan. The windows of the shop attracts me the most as it gives a retro feeling which, I think, a traditional Chinese operated coffee shop should have.

1st roll of film

I've finished my 1st roll of Fujifilm Xtra 400 35mm film on my Minolta Maxxum AF7000. Seeing the output, I really admire analog photographers a lot. It's hard to get things focused correctly, it's also quite hard to get exposure correct and it's so hard to get a correct depth of field; well, at least for me. our of 36 exposures, I've only got a few shots that merely passed my lowest benchmark of being a photo. Most photos suffer from handshake while others suffer from shallow DoF. Here are some shitty photos to share. I've done slight editing to the photos in terms of contrast except the last.

this is the original scanned copy, note that the contrast is so must lower and i wonder what are those white patches

Strobing

At last I am back home. I took out the Olympus EPL-1, tried taking photos since I barely touch it since i bought it. In the midst of trying out the functions thoroughly, 1 of the forum members in Lowyat.net started sharing his Panasonic GF-3 photos taken by his Sony A77 with off camera flash. Hence, I tried playing with that technique as well. So, here's some to share. Thank William Leong for the ideas.
