The idea of this workshop is to find interesting images while moving around across the City from trains to platforms to escalators, looking for portraits, sceneries, cityscape, reflections and anything catching your eye.
With several ten of thousands of passengers at any given moment, we have an infinite number of possible subjects: everybody catches the subway, the business man in an Armani suit, the school kids wearing their clad uniform, the American tourist visible from miles away, the workman on his way to the factory, the dozen of different communities making Kuala Lumpur such a vibrant and pleasant City.
We work as fast as we can, snapping the pictures before anybody even realizes they have been photographed. We used multiple settings on our cameras, fast speeds to freeze the action, slow speeds to have special effects from a moving train. We use windows as mirrors, heads in the foregrounds as shadows of a more complicated composition.
Most of all we try many different poses; we travel outside our comfort zone to look for the unknown that is inside us. We surprise ourselves to come back two hours later with, for each of us, a wonderful new portfolio.
