My APOLOGY: PHOTOserver is temporarily DOWN

[First draft was 'published' in MPN PHOTOtalks Forum in April/May 2007]

From my perspective "Photography" covers so many topics of great interest:- the hardware, the software, the techniques, the photographers, the arts, the subjects/locations, the lights, the time/tides, the moods, the 'happenings' ...etc. . The bottom line is the end products, i.e the captured-IMAGEs which had been transformed from trasient to timeless.

Olympus C5050
Exposure time: 2secs
F-stop: 8.0
ISO speed: 64
Focal length: 11.3000 [55mm EFL]

Probably the hidden processes behind clicking the shutter on any digital camera [even the simplest model] are more complex than any other system we have ever experienced. Photography relies on many branches of knowledge and technology more than other creative medium put together. Knowledge on the hardware, the processes and the subject matter greatly influence the work we do in photography.

Almost every knowledge known to mankind is associated with photography.... arts, psychology, social science, optics, mechanical engineering, physics, electro-chemistry, maths, geometry, electronics, computer engineering, fuzzy logics, adaptive control systems, multivariable nonlinear system...... and also some fields in which most ppl never even have ever heard before such as atmospheric phenomenology, psychophysics.... just name it!....

Great pictures are not necessarily best in term of quality. Sometimes blurred, shaky, B&W images have more values than studio like sharp, beautiful coloful photos finish. The following photo, shot by my son, Azim Wan was published in Digital Camera Magazine Issue 17 supports my views...

Actually my personal interest is in NATUREphotography [incl. Insects, flowers, heaven and earth....] and a little bit of 'action' shots freezing transients into timeless history .

NATUREphotography - a CLOSEup approach

Sebagai permulaan kita tidak perlu keluar dari kawasan rumah sendiri untuk memulakan "Nature Photography" secara kecil2an....


Dibelakang rumah kita memang banyak kerengga. Kerengga sangat berguna untuk menjauhkan makhluk perosak drpd menghampiri buah2an..

Jika diamati , serengga ni juga 'menternak' hidupan lain untuk mendapatkan 'susu'.... gabungan dua makhluk ini boleh merupakani 'smart-partnership' yg effective kerana disamping 'mendapat susu', kerengga juga melindungi makhluk tsb daripada menjadi habuan serangga lain. Dibawah ini menunjukkan gembala2 kerengga sedang menjaga 'ternakan' mereka dicelah pelepah pokok palma.

Seekor lagi kerengga sedang mengawal ternakannya dalam pucuk mentimun tikus.

Pepatung atau Dragonfly

Satu lagi serangga yg terdapat dilaman rumah kita ialah Pepatung atau dikampong saya ianya dipanngil "tuyup".Mata compoundnya lebih besar dari otak seakan2 serupa dgn CCD/CMOS digicam. Tapi berapa MP agaknya. Retina mata manusia bersamaan dgn 120MegaPixel!!

Serangga ni juga berguna pada manusia kerana ia amat menggemari nyamok aedis dan serangga2 perosak kecil yg lain spt lalat dsb. nya. Di Benua Amerika utara tuyup ni dipanggil "mosquito hawks"
