Back to Blog 6 – Photography – The most intriguing hobby

To make long story short, please allow me to sum up my feelings.

I bought a new DSLR, a Nikon D5100, beginner camera, not long ago, weeks after it finally released in Malaysia. The camera came together with a 18-55mm kit lens, which cost me RM2300.

Then i got the chance to join a photography beginner workshop and happened to be given a chance to shot photos at real human model. she’s pretty, and i felt shame for taking bad pictures.

Although the camera came together with a Nikon camera bag, I had decided to spend RM380 for a Crumpler Camera Sling bags, in the end, its definitely money well spend, since im now more confident carrying my camera everywhere, with my bag together, at least, a camera bag that doesn’t looks like a camera bag.

hmm, then i waited for the released of new Nikkon lens 50mm 1.8g, its a fast lens. I tried to get the best price from the net, through forums and stuff, in the end, after numerous asking around, i finally settled with a purchase from Foto Selangor at Pertama Compleks for RM650. Its damm cheap.

Then i took my camera to work, and spend the friday evening after work tried out the lens at downtown Petaling Street. Took tons of picture, learned that i cant set the same f/stop for every shot. Then i learned that i must stay steady with the camera, else its easier to get blur. I blame my amateur technique, I blame the lowlight, (since its dark, evening), i blame the moving subject, and although the picture looks nice to my amateur eyes, i get feedback that some picture being out of focus. I cant deny the fact that its really out of focus.

I’m going to get better. Snap more picture. haha. ok, so now, very happy with the new lens. I’ll keep you up to date once i learn more about this hobby.

Oh yeah, this is the main reason why i stopped buying figures. But then if Hot Toys release Batman / Joker 12 inch, i cant guarantee i won’t spend.

Time will tell.

Well, it started out as a normal fishing trip where we gathered at Ratchet for some fish. After almost like 2 hours, we get bored and Rathalos suggest to swim out to the sea to seek for some exploration.

3 of us swim out started to swim out the open ocean. Astonishingly, we found a sinking shipwreck somewhere not far from the shore. We then dive in and looking for any survivor in the ship. But it seems that skeleton also don’t have, the shark nearby must be very hungry.

Not far from the shipwreck, we found one of its cargo floating on the sea. Then we decided to do some fishing. A few minutes later, we decided to swim to one of the nearest island. There, we found a fishing community, and they are very friendly, the local tell me that they sell “ikan masin” there.

Not far from the fishing village, we found a big redundant ship there at port. Once inside the ship only we realize that it is a pirate ship and the pirate crew is at the nearby bar drinking bear. Since no body at the ship, we sneaked in and found several treasure chests. But we are unable to open these treasure chest, too bad, since we heard footsteps getting closer, and pirates are coming back to the ship, to avoid conflict, we flee from the ship.

Not too far from the ship, we found the possible legendary sea monster name “Isha awak”, weired name. Nonetheless, we kill the monster. After killing the monster we swam further and found a undersea cave. There are piranha there, scary. And we are being trapped inside the cave.

After some further exploration, we are escape to go up to the surface. It seems that the cave is the underwater entrance to a underground prison of some militia who used to occupy the place.
There is a deserted village nearby possibly which possibly could be the base of some terrorist. Meanwhile, we did found some clue on the identity of the terrorist group in one of the meeting room. From the imprint of the flag, we are quite confident that the base was once the gorilla place of the “Axe gang”. There are further evidence that it is a place of slaughter and interrogation of prisoner as we still can see slaughtering table covered with dry blood.

Soon, we are able to find an underground sewer which lead us to a room full with casket. Near the casket, we found the dead body of “Varian Wrynn” the King of Stormwind. The body is well preserve with some unknown alchemy. We concluded that the Axe gang terrorist is the organization who is responsible in breaking in and stealing the King tomb back in 1970’s when Hip hop just started. And the gang flee from the base in the hurry and abandon the King body. They seems to only take away the previous items which buried together with the King. We then decided that we should blown the place to allow the King and other spirit to rest in peace, hence we planted C4 at one of the support pillar outside the underwater cave.

Kaboom!!! We blown up the place to pieces and continue to do fishing. Before we go back to Shattrah City, we transform into Murloc and took a picture as to remember our exciting exploration.

Edit: on 18 April 2010 to include Slide show for the photo gallery.
