Imagine my bewilderment when I saw a sea of beautiful lights shining from a small hill just behind Sungai Rasau Toll Plaza along Federal Highway. It was a very pretty sight! I knew immediately that must be I-City for I’ve read 2 articles about I-City’s White Winter Wonderland recently at The Star newspaper. If you’re clueless as what I-City is, you can read more about I-City here. In short I-City is the latest MSC Malaysia Cybercentre Zone @ Shah Alam, Selangor.
Good news is I have my DSLR with me that night. Wehheeee but boy oh boy I had some tough time setting up most of the shots as I’m not sure how to set the best aperture and white balance. Plus using a 50mm f/1.8 lens for landscape shots is a real test. In the end I just ignore the white balance setting (set to auto) and only concentrate on aperture. And I choose not to use flash as I dislike overblown picture.
So bear with me… these are my first night photography shots of LED Christmas trees.
Tsk, I also did day shooting at I-City few months later which I think is really interesting and rare. Not many will visit I-City during the day. So click here to view some of my favorite shots taken at I-City at ‘bright’ time. Hope you like it.
Hmm too dark and not pretty. Haha
But I gotta show you how they look from far, right?
It was drizzling when we first arrived.
I ‘kinda’ like this picture! But something is amiss. A good composition maybe.
The hill was a little damp. A concrete path lead you to the LED trees. Be careful of the muddy earth though.
Hmm the blue and red LEDs lights kinda cacat. The colors looks overblown. What would you recommend the camera setting to be?
Lime tree in the midst of all this?
Chinese New Year is around the corner after all.
Unfortunately this shot didn’t turned out well from what I imagined.
Now this I like!
Christmas has come and gone and… there’s nothing wrong snapping Christmas trees in the month of January. Haha
This is my no. 1 favorite picture for this session. Look at the lovely bokeh. Especially the green one on the right.
I feel so happy every time I look at this picture.
Twinkle twinkle my eyes…
Another yellow star. I have blue star, green star and red star shots too but they doesn’t look as nice as this.
Love Love Love this.
Okay so I was there on 2nd January 2010.
But I’m not sure how long the display will be there. The lights are always on. Do go and check them out. A heaven for photographers.
