A Day Trip to Sepang Gold Coast with Diana Mini

2

Spending a day at Sepang Gold Coast, Selangor, Malaysia, with the Diana Mini that I have just bought recently. It was not only my first time trying out this delicate little princess but also the first time using Lomography X Tungsten Film. It was just a perfect day with perfect companions at this lovely place.

Just recently my love and I had a getaway to Sepang Gold Coast, Malaysia. Even though it was just a short day trip, it was perfect enough for a break from routine life. Sepang Gold Coast has been declared as the longest coastal paradise in Asia. It was one of the nearest beaches to Kuala Lumpur, which is only around 70 minutes driving distance. It’s even closer to the airport, which is only around a 20-minute drive from KLIA.

I had been to this place quite a few times but mainly for work, this was actually the first time I really got to slow down and appreciate the beauty of this place. What made this trip more interesting was that I got to use the Diana Mini which I just bought recently and even better still, it was also my first time using Lomography X Tungsten film as well. I was just having too much fun snapping away, using half frames all the way seems like having no more limitations.

I wish I could tell you how much fun I had with the kids there in words, their smiles just move your heart. Asking them to say “cheese” might be an old-fashioned way to break the ice, but I think it somehow works almost every time. How can you not smile yourself after seeing lovely faces like these?

The Diana Mini is the ultra-compact, petite version of the Diana F+. This camera takes soft-focused, lo-fi images in 35mm and allows you to change between half-format and square shots with a flick of a switch. Get your own Diana Mini now!

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    On-Time Rumble: Show Us Your Perfect Timing

    There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.

    Analog By Nature

    It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.

    Summer Hot Spots: Escaping the Heat at Cameron Highlands

    It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
