I’ve been to Taipusam in Singapore twice already, so I thought I’d head up to Penang to shoot it this year. It was a little different than the Singapore version. Less piercing and more of a festival atmosphere that pretty much goes all day. It still blows my mind that it seems totally normal while I’m there but the minute I start looking back at the photos then I start cringing. We followed a couple of groups about halfway down the route. Most people started later in the day, but it was crazy hot, so we just shot in the morning and then slept the rest of the day :)
I’ve been experimenting with new processing meathods lately. Let me know what you think of this style, it was actually a custom creation for a client (post coming up next!), but I think I like it, so wanted to try it out on some of my own stuff as well.
