Some Journalism Photos by me.. mirulalpha

Salam. Street photo shooting... I was kind of interesting things for me. Since I was involved in this photography world, I'm trying to discover what is street photo is.. Because many photographers tell about and it was like some hot stuffs for teenage and "otai" or legendary photographer.

What is street photo?
Street photo is a photos that been taken candid or else on the street. Er? My explanation is quite bad. Never mind. Maybe you all could ask the Chot Touch to find the real meanings of it and get some better explanations.

What is journalism?
About the journalism... Yes, I can explain it. Journalism is an activity where you study (investigate) in curtain places and make a report to an audience. For example, you are the photojournalism that have been on duty to make a photojournalism at Thailand. Some of the example report or their study are... the culture, the arts and maybe daily life on the places.

Ok. I'm done with it. Here's some of the photos that I've taken since I'm using a200. I'm still newbie in the type of photography. So, maybe some of the photo didn't have any explanation or story?

That's all for this post.. I'm tired today. Too many things to be done... That's all guys. Thanks for viewing. Enjoy.!

My Camera, My Life....

Hi, I'm Amirul. Most people call me Amirul Alpha since I'm using that name in Facebook. Photography is my hobby since I'm held my first camera which is a compact camera maybe some people will said.. Digital Lomo? Nevermind.

Since I was involved in photography... a lots of cameras I'm using... from compacts to semi-SLR... to DSLR... and what's next? professional-DSLR? Maybe it is still a long journey for me...

But, camera is not the important things that makes a photos taken by a photographer look good. The important things is... YOURSELF.. which are..

The way you THINK in a PHOTO,
COMPOSITION in a photo, your SOUL when using a CAMERA
and the way you MANAGE your own DSLR.

By the way... I'm currently owned two DSLR body and two lenses (kitlens and 50mm 1.8), both only the entry level one... a200 and a230.. which I'm still prefer the old a200 for Beginner, Mid-range and Pro shooter?? Why? The a200 is much better in their design and IQ compared to the new a230 which is small and some features were being removed (ex. Remote Shutter Port, AEL Buttons and Manual WB Control). Furthermore, a200 designed to gave the user more comfortable and feel when using the DSLR. Er, that's all?

What the most things that I like with the a200 is..... the vertical grip. It makes the camera looks smarter compared to the a230 which has no vertical grip (3rd party one have, but only sell in Europe).

Talking about my future, what is my ambition? Maybe a lots of people will said I will be a professional photographers or anything else as a media or whatsoever. Actually, photography is only part of my hobby and maybe to keep it as my part-time jobs for my future. It's hard to be a professional photographers and bright future? Nah... maybe dark future for me if I choose it as my profession. I'm much more interest in multimedia design and graphics.. Bright future? Maybe yes for me.

A relationship? Girlfriend? Nah. Secret. No need to tell or "kecoh-kecoh" to anybody here. But I'm always thinking my future... What will it be.... Can I be as good as what people be nowadays? Ah.. sad statements.

Overall, without camera my life is like nothings. All the things happened are moments for me and I love to keep the memorable photo which makes me remind what happened during my childhood and teenagers age in the future... I think this is the most longest entry ever that I've type since I'm blogging.

That's all I think. Enjoy reading. I'm actually didn't know what is the motive I'm typing this essay. Haha. Stay tuned for more updates.
