Title: “citi BUILDING, Kuala Lumpur, v.2, Edit C, AgfaPanAPX” (style)
What is it? citi Bank Building.
Location: Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.
Notes: A TEST for myself, to capture a beautiful photo during the WORST part of the day for photography (around 1pm with hot sun, glaring off a GLASS and METAL building), and come up with something aesthetically pleasing from a Color or B&W Photo-Perspective. I chose B&W.

I love the glare at the top: So I wanted it to shine as a star. I also wanted to make a dark and rich B&W Image, mostly low-key but concentrate the focus on the building surface facing the sunlight.

This was vision of this scene, on this day.

“One-Man-Show Sdn. Bhd.” LOLOL! Malaysians will know what Sdn. Bhd., is all about.

Note: Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, this is a re-run from my other photostream, but it is a new “Edit” (J) and I needed to start my “BODY PAINT PHOTOGRAPHY” Set here, at my new Account.

Bukit Marmar, v.2, Ilford Delta, Ipoh, Malaysia, 2008

What is it? I call it, “Bukit Marmar, v.2” This is a “mountain” where marble is dug and cut. You can see a HUGE wall there in the front of the natural structure.

Where is it located? Just outside of Ipoh, Malaysia. It is a beautiful site. However, if they keep cutting down this natural wonder, you know, to make tiles for flooring and such, it will be gone in a matter of a number of years.

The Photograph was taken on 9 Dec 2008. I just pulled off the highway (a very dangerous thing to do as cars and trucks whizzzzzzzzz by you at 110, or 150KM/Hour!!!!! Those KL people seem to just love racing down the highway to get back home, hahahahaha, at least, the majority were KL Plates doing the “whizzzzzzzzzing”!

BUKIT MARMAR, v.1, Edit C

Title: “Bukit Marmar, v.1, Edit C.
Creation Date: 9 Dec 08
Location: Out of Ipoh, Malaysia, along E3 Highway.

Notes: Have you ever wondered where your nice Marble Tile came from? Well, it comes from rich, natural resources like this marble mountain. The surface has been cut, and slightly polished to expose the wondrous marble. The sad note is that this is a non-renewable resource, and basically, the people who own this land, can rape it all they want to manufacture marble products.

It is beautiful, but this mountain will not exist forever, once it is cut down flat to the ground, over the next few decades.

SUPER RED HOT M&M!

SUPER HOT RED M&M, v1, Edit J-btl3

GENRE: STUDIO STILL LIFE
CREATION DATE: 03 DEC 08
ARTIST / PHOTOGRAPHER: NAWFAL NUR
COMPANY: NAWFAL NUR PHOTOGRAPHY
OWNERSHIP: NAWFAL NUR
RIGHTS: ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

PHOTO DESCRIPTION: A single, red MINI M&M (about 50% smaller than normal M&M’s), sitting atop a tablespoon full of VERY, VERY, VERY BURNING HOT Vietnamese Chilies. You can see how small they are, but so very potent. The good thing about these chilies is that you can eat them raw like this and they don’t have very many seeds! ;^) HOWEVER, they will make your teeth melt!!! LOLOL!!! I like to put these in Nasi Goreng (Fried Rice).

TECHNICAL DETAILS:

CAMERA: CANON POWERSHOT A620.
LIGHTING: METZ 32 Z2 STROBE (HAND HELD).
DIFFUSER: TESCO (LOLOL) HUGE SALAD BOWL.
SUPPORT: bogen 3001 Professional Tripod, bogen 3025 Head, and MANFROTTO #352 Ball & Socket Head.

SOFTWARE: PHOTOIMPACT X3.

PHOTO NOTES: I wanted to create an image with extreme subjects: The chilies are SUPER HOT; and, the Single M&M is SUPER SWEET. And, I wanted to get in really close to show how small these tiny chilies are. Also, I wanted to capture a still life with complementary color matching: Shades of green and red.

Side Note: MINI M&M’s taste NO DIFFERENT than regular sized M&M’s! Hahahahahahaha!!!!
