It brings me immense joy to announce the unveiling of my latest collection of the Best Travel Portrait Shots 2023, with photoshoot sessions done in Kuala Lumpur. This carefully curated selection of my finest portrait photography showcases the culmination of my creative efforts throughout the year 2023.
As someone who has honed their skills as a Fujifilm film recipe creator, as well as a personal vacation portrait photographer based in KL, I am excited to share with you some of my favorite portraits that were captured using my very own Fujifilm recipes. These portraits expertly showcase the unique and captivating aesthetics that can be achieved with Fujifilm cameras and my carefully crafted best Fuji recipes.
Specifically, I have dedicated my time and effort this year to conducting photoshoots with tourists in Kuala Lumpur – a city that never fails to inspire me with its vibrant and diverse atmosphere. Additionally, I have also been working on some exciting side projects that you can discover under the photography section of this blog.
Editor's Pick: 10 Best Travel Portrait Shots
I picked out some of my favorite SOOC portrait photos that I took using different film recipes. I like to shoot in a style that looks cinematic, natural, and dreamy. Many of my customers trust me and are happy with my work. Previously I have shared some best SOOC portraits of 2022 and best cinematic portraits as it’s about time to update some of my work.
I really love shooting in natural lighting outdoors, which is one of the basic portrait techniques I have learned from trial & error from the past year and still trying to improve from time to time. Well, the lighting are constantly changing and different, so we have to adapt to it.
A personal portrait photoshoot in Lalaport KL with the best natural lighting condition. Most photos are shot with the Downtown Bloom portrait recipe.
One of my favorite photoshoot sessions in Kuala Lumpur with a model from London, UK. The B&W recipe is custom settings that are yet to be available, so stay tuned! You can check out this high fashion shoot for more photos.
One of my recent photoshoot sessions in downtown Bukit Bintang was shot with the Downtown Bloom recipe before noon and the weather is hot! Although the background was a little busy during the noon, I wish I have the 23mm wider angle lens to cover more areas but still one of the best vacation shoot of the day with my Fujinon XF35mm f2.
This is a photo I like, taken with my Fujifilm camera at the Great British Circus. It looks like a scene from a movie. It’s one of the best pictures I’ve taken and it should be included in a list of the top portraits of 2023. There are only JPEGs using Nomadic Mood recipe and doesn’t have the RAW files for further adjustment because I have forgotten to set it to JPEG/RAW settings!
A travel photoshoot for Vikky from Australia at the Saloma Bridge in KL which I did some cinematic shots as well. The recipe used for the whole session is Downtown Bloom.
One of the best travel portrait photoshoot sessions in Chinatown KL. Most photos are taken with the Downtown Bloom recipe.
Well, this session is an indoor photoshoot so the lighting can be tricky and required a lot of trial & error. The background might look overexposed but it was intentional. LOL. The recipe used for this photo is Tokyo Dream.
This was a picture taken with the Fujifilm X-H2S camera, using Nostalgic Negative. The photo was taken at a workshop in Chinatown that was hosted by Fujifilm and YL Camera focused on portrait photography. If you’re interested, you can see more pictures and stories here. For Fujifilm users that doesn’t have the X-Trans V cameras, you can check out the Nostalgic Negative film recipe, which is featured as one of the best portraits film simulation recipes that you can test out.
Last but not least, this is one of my favorite and best travel portrait shots and is worth to be listed here. This is shot with the Nomadic Mood recipe during a personal photoshoot session in Chinatown KL. You can check out more details and photos here.
