Hot Shots

Fire swinging on Koh Tao 2008 (1)


I've linked both images to the same page, which contains brief guides how they took these shots.

I thought they were amazing and wanted to share with you guys.
Its good to know how to take good pictures of fire.

Besides, once you learn this, you'll have a reason to play with fire. (:

So, from today onwards, if you see one of your neighbor's house on fire, seize the opportunity!
Step 1 : Go grab you camera.
Step 2 : Try to snap few good shots.
Step 3 : Now go find your handphone and call the fire brigade. 

And while waiting for them to come, snap a few more. :)

Have fun,

National Geographic Photography Contest - Visions of Paradise

National Geographic is organizing a contest for their book 'Visions of Paradise'.

Sorry about the miscommunication. We didnt note the fact that its not an internationally open competition. Thanks to Ping for pointing it out

Anyways, it doesn't mean we can't learn something! 

Do drop by their website to have an eye opener on what the world's perspective on paradise is. At the same time learn from professionals how they frame their shots. We've seen it and some of their shots are really to die for!

If you have an account, why not drop a vote too?

Yup, Malaysians can vote for America :p

Phlashing out,
