Portrait of my 3rd children Nu'man AL-Fatih shot on 2010. I applied strobes technique using two flash light Nikon SB800 & SB600 attached to softbox and a black unreflected cloth as background and a white cloth as props. This is one of my favourite portrait during my tenure in photography.

View of paddy field around my home town, Tasek Gelugor, Penang. While shooting this picture, I was impressed with the cloud formation at the background.

Picture of my sister in law with her baby Muhammad Diny. During this photoshoot session, I have to wait about 1 hour with tens of shots just to get 1 perfect moment.



4. POOL DANCING
A shot from Teluk Bahang, Penang. I love how the poles stick in the water, they look like the poll dancers.

This such a nice place is extremely a hot spot for photographers around Butterworth, Penang. This spot located at Teluk Air Tawar, Butterworth and famously called as Robina Park. Another favourite seascape in my collection.

Infant portraiture is my new interest and I got this during my baby photoshoot session in my very house. Her name is Noor Syuhada 'Ulya at her 1 month old.



7.THE TALES OF THE SAKURA
If people ask me which one is my best shot all along the way in photography, I would like to say this one. Captured in Tanjung Asam, Gertak Sanggul, Penang. First time I came here my eyes can't believe what i have seen. The tree look very outstanding, single and alone growth up on the bunch of rocks, it looks independence.

7. What do you like most about photography?
While in the field, working with my gear, I was talking to the universe. When I returned home and start processing the files, it give me peace of mind. When everything done and the picture ready to hang on the wall, that is the true satisfaction. That is photography to my life.
