Photo Essay : Business At Dusk

I’ve been attracted to photograph the scene at Night Maket. I always carry my camera with me whenever i go to the market with my wife and daughter, but it often ends i’m carrying my daughter or the stuff that we just bought there. In such crowded public area, i don’t want to missed every single sight of my daughter, so its either me to carry the stuff or my 2 years old daughter.

I still remember duirng my earlier days when i just bought my Nikon D60, this night market was one of my interesting subject for me to photograph.

I like to present it in black and white, because its not the vibrant color that attaract me the most, but the life, the businness itself. I love to have just a little bit movement by using lower shutter speed to let viewer experience the sense of motion.

The market has different sections, wet market, vegetable & fruit market, spices & food groceries, food stalls, Malay Pastry and the list goes on.

My next visit to this market, i will take more food stalls photos, i’m talking about the flames on the wok while cooking. Nothing to hurry, the market is opening daily ūüôā

Intro

Dear readers,

First of all, i dont know how to start in but i can’t start without starting it in the first time. Well, it took me almost a month before i write this introduction since i made this blog. I’m not fluent in english but i’ll try my best to make you…. at least get the point, i do welcome some grammar correction. My purpose to write in english is so that not only Malaysian will understand what i’m blogging here, but worldwide.

I’m Shukur, Kota Kinabalu based photographer. Been actively shooting since year 2009. I shoot both available light & strobes, but available¬†light¬†is what i prefer the most. ¬†I’m interested taking portrait of people, and hoping to have a chance to take maternity & newborn in future.

I’m now in love with backlighting, or maybe i’m addicted to it.

Luckily¬†I have a 2 year old daughter, which is my main subject in learn & studying my craft in photography. So be prepared to see her face most of the time. ¬†ūüôā

I really hope that what i blog here will give an advantage to others or at least to give some guidance if not really solve it.

I may also¬†regularly¬†post my past work and share experience / stories that¬†I’d¬†learned along the way.
