I’ve been dealing with burnout lately. I don’t feel like doing anything when it comes to photography. The month of November was really hectic with work and it adds up to the burnout that I’m dealing with. I tried to edit some photos but it’s not working and it is depressing. I’m not in control of how things are carried out. So I turned to the internet on how to overcome the problem.
I’m beginning to rethink the purpose of why I do photography. The answer to this is I love being out with the nature but now, I’m not going out anywhere. I spend most of my week at work and then on weekend just resting and do absolutely nothing at home. I started to feel the pressure of not creating and post anything. It felt like my followers are anticipating something great from me and I’m letting them down.
I’m taking a step at a time now, I don’t want to push myself too hard. I have to set a clear mind that I’m doing this not to impress people, but to inspire them. Photography supposes to be fun. I made tons of friends with photography and surprisingly, I also losses some of them along the way without any reason. Well, people do come and go.
I hope to start inspires people again with my photography and I’m hoping for a better year ahead of me. I have a bunch of unfinished tasks related to photography and I hope I can complete them before the end of this year. Until my next post, wassalam.
Hi everyone! So on this post I would like to share on behind the scenes of my Mangku Sakti Waterfall shooting. This waterfall is located near Sembalun village in Lombok tengah.
By far, this is the hardest place to reached during my Lombok trip. We had to go 3km off-road in a non-4wd vehicle and at about 2km we had a punctured tire, so we have to continue to walk the remaining 1km and believe me, it’s not an easy walk either!
After about 45 minutes of trekking up and down the hill, we reached the entrance to the waterfall. From there, it’s another 20 minutes of trekking to reached the waterfall! *Sigh*
Well, this is what we do, what we love to do as a landscape photographer. The harder it gets to reached to a location, the more excites we got! Although its pretty tiring! Lol.. :p
Here’s the final image….
Until my next post then..Assalamualaikum 🙂
Assalamualaikum and good evening everyone! Happy new year 2013! Here’s my first blog post, another photo from monsoon seascape hunting with super friends on last December. This shot is taken at Kemasik, a perfect place for seascape lover like myself. As we all know, on monsoon season the waves were pretty strong. If you look at the water here, I only used a 5 seconds of exposure is enough to make the water look kinda dreamy. If you use long exposure that too long for example like 30 seconds or more, you will make the water look really white and for me I just don’t like it.
So remember, if the waves were strong a shutter speed around 5 seconds to 15 seconds is enough to blur out all the water. Nevertheless, it still depend on yourself, because its your photo you decide how you want it to be! The most important thing is, enjoy the moment! 🙂
Hope you guys like it! Have a great day 🙂

Assalamualaikum and good evening everyone! Another shot from my Terengganu short visit. It was taken earlier then ‘Earth Meets Ocean‘ shot. It takes me few attempt to get the perfect movement of the waves falling down from the rock. I got hit the waves few times but luckily my entry level camera was covered by the 4×6 neutral density graduated filter! Sometimes you just got to get wet to get the perfect shot!
Have a lovely weekend my friends 🙂
