The Star Attraction

Class Photowalk

I took my Photography 1 students out for a photowalk during class yesterday. We only had about 40 minutes to get some shots. About half way through our walk, we spotted this little girl. She had the greatest expression…somewhere between sad and confused…a very cute and cooperative model for us all…

My Commute To Work In Jakarta

I have been wanting to film my ride into work on my motor bike (Honda Scoopy) for some time with my GoPro. I finally just did it. I at first mounted the camera on top of my helmet. It was aimed too low, and all you could see was the road directly in front of me. So, I did it again with the camera aimed a bit higher. It wasn’t bad, but from what I have learned with video is that something stationary should be in your shot….I couldn’t see my handle bars or my speedometer. Third try, I mounted my camera on my chest using the chest mount. Half way through my ride, it started to pour rain. By the time I got my rain suit on, my battery ran out…Fourth try!! Finally, I got video from my bedroom to my classroom…

And without further ado….HERE IT IS….

 

Petronas Twin Towers

One of the most famous buildings in the world. It is pretty incredible..especially at night. Like many famous buildings or sites around the world, there are thousands upon thousands of people that take photos of these places daily. The night I was there was no different. In front of the towers, there were probably a hundred people taking photos. The last thing I wanted to do was take yet one more of the same photo millions had taken before me, and post it on the internet.

So, I looked for a different angle. Walking back to my hotel, I saw this reflection in the building across the street. I thought, “I bet no one has THAT photo”.

IASAS Golf in Kuala Lumpur

Great Tournament

I just returned from a four day trip to Kuala Lumpur with the JIS Golf Team. It was fantastic. The host school, ISKL (International School of Kuala Lumpur) did a fantastic job organising a three-day tournament for 72 golfers. We played three different courses, but my favorite was Templer Golf Club. A gorgeous course in the hills of Malaysia. It was painful to NOT play it was just so pretty. The photo below was taken before the golfers headed to their tees early in the morning…

By the way, our team came in second place for the tournament. Go Dragons!!

One More That I Like…

Ok, so I ended up with three shots that I liked. This is my best of the three, I think. Funny…my buddy, Rick White and I had a checklist we went through before posting a photo of the Bull Riders. Something like this….

1. Hooves in the air

2. Bulls and rider in focus

3. Rider has eyes open

4. Bulls look fierce and tough

5. Mud fills most of the frame

6. Mud not covering rider’s face

7. A wake of water in front of the Bulls

I think that covered most of our check list. This photo meets most of the seven…not sure about the hooves in the air, though…
