Samsung NX Traveller Melbourne Pictures
Thank you Samsung Malaysia for selecting me to represent Malaysia as the photojournalist for this remarkable NX Traveller photography tour. This is the 2nd year in running for this NX Traveller program after the inaugural was in Hanoi Vietnam. Winners, media, photojournalists, KOL (Key Opinion Leaders), Samsung representatives from Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore get together and travelled to two different cities in Australia; Melbourne and Sydney.
Before I am going to write a full story of the entire trip, let me share some of the pictures I took in Melbourne. All of this pictures are taken by Samsung NX 30 and many thanks to all those who taught me new skills including Alex, RJ, Wilson Wong, Davvy, Jeffrey, Eric, Bill and many more. I made many new friends and we enjoyed ourselves there even though shooting under extreme harsh weather in some days. I must also thank Tourism Victoria for arranging such a wonderful and experiential trip for photographers like us. It is never easy to arrange trips for photographers as we took time to capture our pictures and moments.
These are some of the my favourite pictures with descriptions and please press the number to view the rest of the pictures. The full photography story should be out soon.
1. Cyclist going back home at Southbank, Melbourne. We embraced the rain to wait for the sunset and we captured pictures of cyclists cycling home by the Yarra River. Due to the rain, I get the beautiful reflection of the cyclist.
2. Street photography with Becky from Tourism Victoria enjoying the cupcake. You get many food stalls and cafes in the alleys of Melbourne CBD and of course the beautiful street art / graffiti.
3. Davvy from KOL (Key Opinion Leader) from Indonesia. He is a commercial photographer and hates the tripod. I enjoyed learning from him in this trip especially in capturing moment and abstract shots.
4. Sunset in Southbank, Melbourne. The image is reversed purposely to show the reflection of the city. Thus, this is a long exposure shot and I learned many tips from RJ from Singapore for such technique.
