Title: Tioman Jetty
Medium: Photography
Photographer: Johan Ishak
Time/Date: (various time of the days}; 29 & 31 May 2010
Venue: Jetty of Tioman Island

When visiting any island, the first thing that come to mind would be beaches, scuba diving, sunset and various other paradise-like images fit for post cards. Little that people notice that there are abundance of images worthy of being highlighted for its beauty and aesthetic value. Logically speaking, if there are no bridges, neither airports (well Tioman has a small airport but limited to certain passengers), an arrival at an island should and ought to have welcomed its visitors with a jetty. A jetty can be a boring site but if filled with yatchs and boats, of various colours and designs, it can be a beautiful panorama. My first photo shoot when arriving Tioman Island was this magnificent jetty with boats parked neatly and closely giving a nice array of its poles shooting out into the sky.

Photography is not necessarily images tampered with by the various effects an expensive camera or lenses can do. Photography is also about composition. It is like story telling. Instead of sounds, voices and animated graphics, it utilises natural artistic aspects such as lighting, position of the sun, backdrop, sky, clouds, angle, altitude, position of objects, allowances for space, focus, etc. In other words, if you can only afford to buy a simple automatic camera, that'll do. These pictures of Tioman jetty was taken from a simple automatic Olympus camera (but I spent a bit more to get a water proof version so that my snorklings afterwards can contribute to photography.
