For the next street photography trip, we visited Kajang. This is my second time at Kajang since I came here during my childhood. In this assignment, we need to take at least 10 photos of the streets in Kajang. The photographs should be in monochrome and in RAW file.

Here are several photographs that I took using my DSLR camera, Nikon D3400.

1.Chinese temple

I tried to contrast the complicated, colourful temple with the plain, simple clouds in the sky. I took the photos in two different angles.

Several old shop selling cookies and sweets in aluminum tin boxes. It brings back old memories of how sweets and cookies were sold in the past and how some shops still continue this memory until today.

After this assignment, I learned how to be comfortable in adjusting the exposure settings such as the shutter speed, aperture and ISO. I even learned how to create a good composition when taking photographs. I am more comfortable in adjusting the exposure using Adobe Photoshop and Camera RAW.
