Nine Pictures From The Nine Emperor Gods Festival
Ampang, 18th October 2009: Smoky Parade. How does one capture the electrifying atmosphere of the procession?
I also wanted the image to show the sea of devotees were fast moving. An unusually low shutter speed was used with
flash. Light fall-off from the flash helped retain that dynamic moment. The near subjects were frozen by the flash while
those further behind, illuminated by ambient light, has the blurry look because of the slow shutter. Back to First Pic
