HAPPY DEEPAVALI 2003
 
Shop of Lights
     
 
Traffic crawl

Hindus in Malaysia and most countries celebrate Deepavali or the Festival Of Lights on the 24th of October, this year. One of the many shops selling decorative lights in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, provided the perfect setting for this photography outing. View the entire series of pics here.

Story: Last minute shopping, last minute shooting...

The heavy traffic in the area resulted in much obstruction between the camera and the subject (left). I was shooting from the middle road divider and the passing vehicles seemed endless at one point. Luckily, there was a quick break and I managed to squeeze in this shot (above).

Tip: One of the minor disadvantages of most digital P&S cameras is the relatively slow shutter response or lag. To workaround it, you'll need to learn how to fire in advance, in anticipation. A bit tricky with fast moving subjects (like vehicles) but since no film is used, practise by firing away.
