don’t pray for work

more jobs please!!! – i keep complaining to anyone who would listen that daaannng, i need more jobs! if only i can just get a couple more this month, i could [insert how i would spend the cash]…

it is true that work of a freelance nature comes in spurts. at the start of the month, i only had a wedding lined up. at this moment i would have shot the wedding (yesterday), a basketball tounament (today), a community leaders’ forum for mendaki (couple of weeks ago) with another event for them lined up late this month (many thanks to stanley of topixstudio for the mendaki gigs).

well, i have to admit that a rapidly-stacking backlog of photos to edit is not that bad, since that indicates that i am being kept busy. you know what they say – an idle mind is the devils workshop.

good photography saps energy – shooting on back to back days is quite tough, as i learned today. i finished shooting the wedding about 11 plus last night and reached home past midnight. shooting weddings is a fantastic cure for insomnia. woke up at about 11 today, then for the basketball shoot at 2. i guess i was not so physically tired as much as mentally tired.

contrary to popular belief, photography requires a great deal of thinking (composition, watching the light, switching settings on camera, catching moments and expressions, etc.) both technically and aesthetically.

in fact, i am so stoned in the head now that i am having great difficulty finding the right words to type. that’s ok, i have run out of stuff to say. so i am going to share some pictures instead.

this one was shot outside the ballroom where the community leaders’ forum, organised by mendaki, was held.

from a skit performed at same event as above. don’t know what her name is, but i think this lady is a popular actress on malay shows.
