Street Photography Using Lenovo Vibe Shot @ Little India Brickfields KL


Early in September, Lenovo Malaysia organized a special hangout session with National Geographic Photographer Hannah Reyes. In collaboration between Lenovo and National Geographic, Hannah is the current brand ambassador for Lenovo Vibe Shot and you may check out her beautiful shots taken during her travel to 5 Southeast Asian countries and India.

Being able to shoot photos for National Geographic Creative is definitely something that I am looking forward to. Therefore I went for the hangout thinking that it was just a casual session chit-chat with Hannah Reyes and to learn a few photography tips from the awesome photographer herself. Little did I know that Lenovo Malaysia loan each of us a Lenovo Vibe Shot to take photos on the street of Little India Brickfields Kuala Lumpur.



As what I understand about Indian's culture, they are always colorful in terms of food, sarees and so many other stuff. Hence the theme of my street photograph was focusing on the colorful thing that I can find at Little India Brickfields. Below are some photos taken during the short photography session and I hope no matter you like/dislike it, leave a comment and tell me what do you think kay?

At least I there's someone reading what I wrote haha!!

We had our dinner at Taj Garden Restaurant located at Jalan Tun Sambanthan. Surprising the food are pretty good and I definitely gonna be there again =) Lot's of food being served band I love the Tandoori Chicken the most. I was given a Lenovo Vibe Shot during that and I start to shoot around. That extra button which serve as shutter button is definitely something which makes Lenovo Vibe Shot more like a camera.

The macro shooting is good enough to give you high clarity even when the photo was captured indoor. Below is a macro photo of the fork and spoon.

After dinner, we went out along the street at Little India Brickfields and start shooting. I was hoping that Hannah might shoot a few photos and share with us on how and why she took that shot using the camera phone. However she seems like exhausted due to frequent travel and just continue her shooting along the street since she has visited her in the afternoon.

So what I learnt from her that night would be the swift and smooth way of her approaching stranger and ask for a photo easily. When I saw a stranger located at a photogenic spot, I got this thought of go and say hi and ask if I can take a photo of him. I have this concept where I think interaction between the stranger and camera can definitely create a better image. Too bad sometimes I am too shy to ask and just give it a pass... If you love street photography, asking permission from a stranger about his photo being taken is an important skill to learn =)

Now let's check out all these colorful corner that I found at Little India Brickfields Kuala Lumpur.

My Verdict on Lenovo Vibe Shot Camera
So, do you like the photos so far??  As a photographer myself, I have high requirement on the camera phone that I use to so I can get quality images when I don't have my DSLR/NX1 with me. The shutter speed for Lenovo Vibe Shot is slower than my ideal requirement but it can deliver his job if you stabilize your hand and stable for long shutter shots. One of the good thing is, no doubt using Lenovo Vibe Shot can ease the weight that I need to carry along when I use DSLR. If you want to shoot nice photo at night, an extra ring flash/borrow friend's smartphone torchlight would definitely help you capture better photo.

I believe Lenovo Vibe Shot can take great photos during day time. As for night photos, you just need extra patience and practice on taking the shot you want. After all, it is the person who use the camera decide the end result.

With the current built-in pro mode, you can control ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture for Lenovo Vibe Shot. Hence you can create your desired images like light-trail photos with their 16 MP camera. Lenovo Vibe Shot has a wide selfie function too, so if you like to take selfie, practice with the feature and you can definitely that a good wide selfie.

Lenovo Vibe Shot currently priced at RM1399.
