The Leica M Monochrom more than satisfies the expectations of discerning users with a raw data histogram for the precise control of tonal values. Apart from that, the dynamic range of the B&W pictures it produces is simply outstanding. The other aspect that I really loved is the Auto Mode for the shutter control makes it really easy to shoot on the streets.
I was in Chiangmai, Thailand with the World Vision group.The World Vision Malaysia Child Sponsorship Visit, Mae Saeriang was a chance for me to test the camera’s ability to shoot in various conditions. I literally brought the camera to the highlands and by the rivers and it did not fail me. I visited two villages. Here are the pictures from the trip:
That is all the pictures that I have posted on this post. If you want to check more of my work please click HERE .
Once again I wanna to thank Mursi from Leica Store Malaysia for the amazing camera. It really proves a point to me, which is you can bring such an amazing camera to the remotest part of the earth and yet it will still deliver results. The camera’s high ISO settings was splendid which made get some awesome shots.
Bihzhu performed at No Black Tie last week. Here is a excerpt taken from her site :
Formerly one-half of the popular pop-jazz duo, Rhapsody and dub outfit Layan Sound System, Bihzhu is the stage incarnation of Nicole Foo. Despite no formal musical training, Bihzhu’s ear for melodic twists, and intuitive jazz and soul inflections have led her on a songwriting journey since going solo in January 2011.
The results of which are found in her debut album Nightingale Tales. Elements of jazz, soul, reggae, acapella and pop roll effortlessly through the six-track album, united by genuine songcraft that celebrates love, beauty and life’s most treasured moments. And at the heart of it all is that voice – a smooth, sultry and smoky blend evoking past greats such as Ella Fitzgerald and Teresa Teng.
Last Saturday was indeed an awesome time for me. Together with the kids from Everyone Has Hope project we went to the Jungle Lodge Alang Sedayu near Gombak. The kids were joined with other Burmese children around KL. It was an amazing time hanging out with them.
