Step 1 – Photo session
The most important thing the setting, for your camera just used Aperture Priority setting - A for Nikon or Av for Canon the get the same result for both picture.

The are many style in digital photography world.......one of them is cinematic photography. It’s quite popular nowadays and many photographer adapted this style on many occasion such as fashion, wedding , portraits and even just for fun. What is important in cinematic photography is the post production setting ( or “photoshopping”) to get the result that we want. The are a couple of step in this technique :-
Desaturate Colours - Reducing the colour intensity makes the photo, “ film-like” effect.
Use lens blur to create shallow depth of field - Using wide open aperture (such as f/1.8 or f/1.4) to get the blurry effect or bokeh to match the film/cinematic lens effect.
Adjust colour balance – the are many type of colour scheme for cinematic effect depends on invidual style but mostly we can use cool toning setting using more bluish in colour balance( different with b&w cinematic style)
Add black bars top and bottom for Cinemascope effect – What can we do more? Just add the bars for immediate effect to finish off the photos.
*The most important thing in this style is how to capture the moment and transform the photos into the “cinematic style”.....the creativity is yours.....happy shooting and Assalamualaikum.

Landscape one of the most popular subject in photography, for me I’m enjoying travelling(even though it’s tiring) because it’s good for photography. Even in couple of hours after doing some works, it’s worth it. Last Friday I went to Johor Bahru for marketing program for my college.I just got a couple of hours ( 6.30 pm to 9.00 pm) time for a photo session with my friend, Mr. Hamzah Hambali around Danga Bay area. Even in a tight schedule, I’ve a got a couple of photo that I’m really satisfied. In landscape photography there are couple of rules that we mustn’t forget and this is a couple of tips from me to shared with you.
Choices of lens – for this session, I’m using my humble Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 VR for wide angle view( not as wide as Tokina 11-16 or Tamron 12-24) but enough to get a very good wide angle photo.
Tripod – In this case, I’m forget to bring my tripod, just using my camera bag to get a steady position (almost like a bean bag I think...hah....) to ensure sharpness, especially in low-light conditions.
Shooting in “golden hours” – There are not quite right timing for the golden hours, depending on where you’re for example :- the right timing in Malaysia is around 6.30 pm to 7.30 pm and it’s vary in other continent.
Setting – The normal approach in to ensure a good photo is using smallest aperture setting to get a maximum “depth of field” and set to the lowest ISO as possible.
For a good photo, just wait for interesting lighting and timing to get a memorable photograph. Happy shooting.......peace.
