A Boy at PIO Steung Meanchey I own a flash, but I haven’t use it much. Now I want to make the best of it. I should have been brought a tripod so that I can light the boy from a higher level.

I have tried to rate the photos in my Lr library a few weeks back, and found some photos that I missed to see its potentials at the first place. Here are two of my new flagged photos I took at PSE Steung Meanchey at the end of last year.

I have been in Siem Reap again for more than one week now. I got some fun with kids and some photos of them during my visits to a couple of schools last week.



Girl on Swing

I do not really like the idea of topping speed light on my camera, as it made me look as if I am living on taking photos. Well, still I do use my speed light sometimes. This shot were fired at midday with plenty of light that I need to narrow the aperture to the smallest, not to wash out the blue sky. By the way, I am getting hooked on my ultra-wide angle lens more and more, as I noticed most of my posted photos were taken with it.

I have also photographed a boy at the very same place when I was there previous time without speed light.

I have posted enough photos of buildings lately.
Smiling Boy with decayed teethDecayed teeth is one of common problems Cambodian children, especially in rural area, are facing. I have found that in rural Cambodia, some kids are just sky away from camera, while some simply keep getting in front of your camera. At least show them their photos in your monitor, if you cannot print them, as they definitely love to see themselves on screen.

Mock Sport Festival

Posted: February 19, 2010 in Children, SVA

Pouk, Siem Reap: Today after discussing with teachers and showing them some video clips, children were gathered under tree shades for mock sport festival. These sorts of sport activities are conducted annually in every primary school in Japan. We hope in the future, Cambodia will have our own version this sport activities too. Both children and teachers did have a very good time this afternoon. It is good for children to do it under the shades, but it means there is not enough light for action shots as I need fast shutter speed. We are gonna do it again tomorrow at the same place. As usual, here are some proofs.
