I had to make sure that my tripod was placed securely and the camera was strapped around my neck to prevent any accidents in the case of a slippage. <a href="http://www.truphotos.com/2012/06/12/how-critical-is-timing-in-photography/">Find out about how critical timing plays a part in photgraphy.</a> Also featured in Daily Inspiration #468: http://shadowness.com/dailyinspiration/forum/daily-inspiration-468 © <a href="http://www.truphotos.com"><u>Deng Weizhong</u></a> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/truphotos"><u>Facebook</u></a> | <a href="http://gnohz.deviantart.com"><u>deviantART</u></a> | <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gnohz"><u>Twitter</u></a> | <a href="http://www.truphotos.com/blog"><u>Blog</u></a> Fri, 15 Jun 2012 05:41:42 -0400 Tradition and Modernity http://shadowness.com/gnohz/tradition-and-modernity <a href="http://shadowness.com/gnohz/tradition-and-modernity"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item8/231685/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />In the foreground is the <a href="http://www.btrts.org.sg">Buddha Tooth Relic Temple</a> where the design of the temple was carried out based on the culture of the Tang Dynasty of China and the Buddhist mandala as the core design philosophy. <a href="http://www.truphotos.com/2012/01/27/buddha-tooth-relic-temple-on-chinese-new-years-eve/"><u>Read the original blog post behind the shot</u></a> :D Also featured here: http://shadowness.com/dailyinspiration/forum/daily-inspiration-464 © <a href="http://www.truphotos.com"><u>Deng Weizhong</u></a> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/truphotos"><u>Facebook</u></a> | <a href="http://gnohz.deviantart.com"><u>deviantART</u></a> | <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gnohz"><u>Twitter</u></a> | <a href="http://www.truphotos.com/blog"><u>Blog</u></a> Tue, 12 Jun 2012 09:37:34 -0400 A whole new world http://shadowness.com/gnohz/a-whole-new-world <a href="http://shadowness.com/gnohz/a-whole-new-world"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item7/191370/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />One of my most recent works. I remember leaning out so far that almost half of my body was dangling dangerously out of the window. My hands were shaking with excitement and I was holding my camera so hard for fear that it might slip off.

This was before I took up photography. I was sitting beside a man who was browsing through images he had just taken. I happened to catch sight of an image on his camera's LCD screen and needless to say, I was mesmerised. The one he had was slightly different in the sense that it was taken when the sun had totally gone down, pitch black sky with lights from the buildings and the Tokyo Tower. I have the other version too if anyone is interested. It was only 2 years later when I picked up photography that I managed to see it for myself. As you can imagine, this view was etched in my mind for that 2 years. Hope you enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed capturing it! And of course, do let me know what you think!

The colourful lights reflected in the bay was captured by waiting for the exact right moment when the building lights changed into the correct combination of colours I was hoping for.

I remember the weather being unbearably cold, just like how you'd feel if you stood in your freezer.

Taken in Japan. I longed for this capture after happening to come across it in some magazine. The impression it left on me was so intense, yet at the same time serene. The rays of light overwhelmed me the first time when I finally found this spot, and I just stared... with memories flooding back. -Finalist in the Celebration Asia! category in the Travel Without Borders photography competition organised by award-winning travel magazine Asian Geographic Passport- Follow me on <a href="http://www.facebook.com/truphotos"><u>Facebook</u></a> and <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gnohz"><u>Twitter</u></a> for the latest updates! © <a href="http://www.truphotos.com"><u>Deng Weizhong</u></a> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/truphotos"><u>Facebook</u></a> | <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gnohz"><u>Twitter</u></a> | <a href="http://www.truphotos.com/blog"><u>Blog</u></a> Wed, 28 Dec 2011 23:34:57 -0500 First light http://shadowness.com/gnohz/first-light <a href="http://shadowness.com/gnohz/first-light"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item6/174640/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />I recall seeing a photo of Moraine Lake in a magazine and have always wanted to photograph it myself. The images I saw were taken at midday so I thought of capturing it in a different light, literally. I got up really early and got there in time, looking for the right spot. Clouds blocked the sunlight at first but my patience paid off when the rays shone through. The peaceful reflections...I can never get tired of them. For people who are wondering, no, this is not a HDR and I did not use any software processing to achieve this effect. Only filters are used in all my work and the same goes for this :) Follow me on <a href="http://www.facebook.com/truphotos"><u>Facebook</u></a> and <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gnohz"><u>Twitter</u></a> for the latest updates! © <a href="http://www.truphotos.com"><u>Deng Weizhong</u></a> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/truphotos"><u>Facebook</u></a> | <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gnohz"><u>Twitter</u></a> | <a href="http://www.truphotos.com/blog"><u>Blog</u></a> Wed, 28 Dec 2011 23:34:56 -0500 Torii gate http://shadowness.com/gnohz/torii-gate <a href="http://shadowness.com/gnohz/torii-gate"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item6/174641/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />One of the first images from the earlier days of my photography. This was taken back in 2008 in Japan after getting my first entry-level dSLR. Looking back from now, I felt it was not as well taken and could be improved in so many ways... I thought the human silhouettes at the base of the gate gave it a sense of scale and also created an interesting effect. Gives me an urge to want to visit each prefecture once more... -Finalist in the Celebration Asia! category in the Travel Without Borders photography competition organised by award-winning travel magazine Asian Geographic Passport- Featured in Daily Inspiration #298: http://shadowness.com/dailyinspiration/forum/daily-inspiration-298 Featured in Daily Inspiration #309: http://shadowness.com/dailyinspiration/forum/daily-inspiration-309 Follow me on <a href="http://www.facebook.com/truphotos"><u>Facebook</u></a> and <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gnohz"><u>Twitter</u></a> for the latest updates! © <a href="http://www.truphotos.com"><u>Deng Weizhong</u></a> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/truphotos"><u>Facebook</u></a> | <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gnohz"><u>Twitter</u></a> | <a href="http://www.truphotos.com/blog"><u>Blog</u></a> Wed, 28 Dec 2011 23:34:56 -0500
