Portrait Photography #2

I have been shooting with Canon 550D for more than 2 years. Last time I shot a lot of landscape. In my opinion, It is fairy easy to shoot. You just need to peek from the view finder and press the shutter.

Since early 2012, I have tried a few portrait shoots and realized that it is not an easy thing to get a good portrait. You need to teach models how to pose and guide on their poses. Some people just shoot whatever the model pose for them and it turn out not good in photograph likes model looks sleepy, boring  and not natural. As model cannot see themselves, photographer has the responsibility to guide them along.

Some people look very nice in reality but not good looking in photos. Some look very normal in reality but they know how to pose and their photos look amazing. In my opinion, it is very important for models to know how to express mood with their eyes.

Shwe Pa Zun Cafeteria

I have lived in Mandalay most of the times in Myanmar, I have heard this cafeteria from the advertisements but never been there personally. When I was on my way from Than Lyin to Yangon, we stopped at Shwe Pa Zun for a short break and I had 2 desserts. :)

David Cook at ION Orchard, Singapore

One of my friends told me that David Cook would be performing at ION Orchard 3 Anniversary event so I brought my camera to office on that day. On my way home, I alighted at Orchard to watch the performance. We were there around 5:30pm. There were not many people on that time, perhaps they might not sure who would be performing on that stage. I think they should put David Cook's photo on the stage to attract more people. Anyway, I got a very good place to take photo but I had to wait since 5:30pm to 7:30pm by standing without dinner and water. He only came out to the stage at 7:30pm. There was a fashion show before David Cook's performance.

Portrait Photography #1

Since 2010 March, I have been updating my blog with a lot of landscape, travel and food photos. Actually, I did shoot a lot of portrait sas well. The reason I never post portrait photos is that I am worried the model might shy to publicize their photos on the internet and I am also not sure the portrait will appeal my blog reader or not.

Anyway, as the number of my portrait photos are growing very fast, I have decided to share it on my blog. I also feel that it will refresh my blog which is dominated by travel & food photos.

Kyaik Day Yon & Lwan Zaydi Pagdoa

I ate lunch at one of the famous Burmese restaurants  in Than lyin. After that we were heading back to Yangon. On our way, my driver stopped at Kyait Day Yon Pagoda which I have near heard before. The Buddha statue is really huge. I only spend few minutes there.

Government Technical College (Than Lyin)

I was returning to Yangon from Than Lyin after visiting Yele Pagoda & Kyait Pada Gyi Pagoda . On my way back, I asked the driver to stop for  a while at Government Technical College (Than Lyin).  I think it was a school holiday. The entrance doors were closed and there was no student around. 
I think alumni from this school will like to see these photos.

Kyaik Pa Da Gyi Pagoda (Kyaut Tan)

 I visited this pagoda after Yele Pagoda.  I had a chance to know this place because of Taxi driver's recommendation and I have to tell you that it is really a nice place. This buddha statue is really impressive.

 I have never seen this snack. It is called "Kouk Line Kyi" (ေကာက္လႈိင္းနီမုန္႔)။ I could recalled the name from one of my facebook fan's comment. When I asked her how to make this snack. She told me it made with Lotus so the color turned black.
