Developing Your Eye II, Day Ten: “Triumph”

 

My submission for this assignment is the triumphant celebration of the victory over the enemies by these Cinese Opera performers. As the Hungry Ghosts’ Festival is approaching in a couple of months, you shall see more of these Chinese Opera snap-shots as it is my favourite photo-shooting time as we can see a variety of these Chinese Opera Troupes performing in Penang.

Day Ten: “Triumph” — Turn Up the Contrast

Triumph comes in all shapes and sizes: Your short story, accepted for publication in your favorite magazine. Your baby’s first step. Or the reward at the end of a cold winter walk: a massive elm tree standing beautifully in the light.

What does triumph mean to you?

Today’s Tip: Triumph usually denotes drama, no matter whether it’s big or small. Playing with contrast is a great way to enhance a photo for a more dramatic effect. Pump up the contrast in today’s snapshot.

Largest Wayang or Chinese Opera Photo-Blog in Malaysia ?   Leave a comment


Yes, I have a back-log of a few thousands of photographs captured during the Hungry Ghosts Festival and the Mid-Autumn Festival in and around Penang. I had not uploaded these photos due to various reasons like near capacity of my WordPress paid quota of hard disk space, slow internet, my desktop problems, and sometimes laziness thrown in due to the editing of these photos. So I shall start uploading these before 2014 comes to an end. Happy viewing and Seasons Greetings to you all.

Local Malaysian Cantonese Opera was seen performing at two places in George Town, Penang during the Hungry Ghosts Festival 2014. It is often seen at Jalan Samak Phor Thor Celebrations since its inception many years ago. This year of 2014 saw the revival of the Cantonese Opera being performed at the Peoples’ Park Phor Thor Celebrations or the Hungry Ghosts Festival for 3 nights.

Night shooting of Teochew Opera   Leave a comment

This series of the photographs which I took with Bertrand Linet after receipt of an sms of a Teochew Opera playing at Farlim Block 4D and 4E. We were joined later by Michael Chuan. The opening was the Hoe Siew which I found to be similar to the Cantonese Opera which I had seen 2 years ago. After the ceremony, the show was slow-moving and we shifted to the Batu Lancang Wet Market Phor Thor tp shoot another Teochew Opera from the one at Bakau Street. We had our usual Teh Tarik and headed to drop Bertrand off at Muntri Street. On the way at the old Brick Kiln Road, we saw the commencement of the ceremony for the burning of the Tai Soo Yah. So ended a fruitful night of shooting.
