I just can’t find the words to describe the experience I’ve learned from the Treasures Of The Rainforests Photography Challenge and Conference 2009 (TOTR) at Batang Ai this June.
There are so many photos to share, and I will start off with this posting.
Being a wedding photographer, continuous learning is a lifelong journey. I faced tough challenges just to attend this workshop, but all the hard work is well worth the effort.
I was so delighted to meeting 8 professional photographers (speakers of the workshop) who tirelessly guided participants about the tips and tricks in photography. They are so humble and ever so willing to help. 4 days 3 nights is just too short for me. Here are some of my favorite shots taken during the workshop.

To this man, a longboat ride is like our everyday car ride to work
At times, they have to push the longboat due to shallow river
Rivers are too shallow, everyone has to get out from the boat and walk
2 crew for the longboat, the pilot and this is the navigator
Patrick taught me how to frame and shoot this waterfall
