i-City Loves Analogue!

16

We all know that film needs light to produce a perfect photograph which is why daytime offers the perfect opportunity to take photographs with your analog camera. But what do you do if you want to take photos during nighttime? How will you be able to work around the low light situation? Well if you happen to swing by Malaysia, i-City in Shah Alam definitely gives you all the light that you need to make stunning photographs.

Cable release, CHECK!
Tripod, CHECK!
Film, CHECK!
Smena 8m, CHECK!

Now, why do we need these things again? It’s “B mode setting” time for sure! And I know a wonderful place to make use of all these. Where? i-City Shah Alam is the ideal location to shoot with all the LED tree lights plus other amazing subjects to take photos of.:)

This is my first experience shooting during nighttime and also my first time to visit this place. Upon reaching i-City, the brightly lit LED tree lights actually served as somewhat of a warm welcome that I instantly fell in love with the place.

How To Get There:
From PJ/KL, use the Federal Highway heading towards Shah Alam. Exit at the Batu Tiga Toll Station and look for the first BP gas station that you see. Turn left at the UiTm/i-City signage. Drive onwards ’til you reach the traffic light and turn right. Drive on the left side of the road until you see the Shell gas station and KFC before the traffic light. UiTM will be on your right. Turn left before the traffic lights, then go straight until you reach a T-junction then turn left. When you see a chrome ball turn left then left again and you will reach i-City.

To all lomographers who are not from Malaysia, do try to visit to i-City so you can experience a new way of being welcomed to Malaysia.:)

PS:I wrote this article while listening to Norah Jones and a cup of white coffee next to me and of course the Lomography site in front of me. My idea of heaven.:)

    Rarely Seen Images of New York Showcased in Duane Michals' 'Empty New York'

    New York City has long been synonymous to skyscrapers, throngs of people both locals and tourists, neon lights, entertainment, and all things loud and hip. It is, after all, a metropolis, a melting pot of cultures - the city that never sleeps. However, back in the 1960s, Duane Michals was able to capture these photographs of a New York that many people has rarely seen.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
