[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Tun Mustapha Tower is among the "best" landmarks of all the other buildings in the tour to do BASE-jumping as it had the necessary space for jumpers to land safely.

To be frank this is my 1st experience taking "action photo" + from high rise building together with fellow TL Ramdan, Agoes & Fadzil under TL senior Rabaniís guidance & supervision.

Seen in the picture is one of the base jumperís action "after 2 second jump" captured on 29th floor Menara Tun Mustapha on August 10, 2008.

I wish to hear a comment/critique to help me improvise my photography perceptive. Thank you for your kind visit.

Slamolekom bos...
Habis! Inda da sudah untuk sya kasi post... hehehe.

Stunning POV you got here my friend. The pleasantly beautiful green makes your jumper and his chute stand out so well.

You have great talent and eyes for the job - 1st experience that was done very well. Congratulations boss...


Assalammualaikum Ujang,
It's never easy to shoot something that moves. You and your camera has to work together to track the subject especially more so, when the subject is falling right in front of you. And it is even more difficult when you are sitting on a hot metal ledge 130m up, and something somewhere is about to cook :) Or the only thing keeping you from falling is a rope you weren't sure of holding you when you say...accidentally follow through your falling object.

Next year, there will another base jumps and by then, you would know better how to do the assignment. And probably we would have more jumpers for you to experiment with say, vertical panning which you will see in my posting later.

Just remember that, composition is in your mind first, and not what you see.


all i can say this is amazing, Ruslan.. i don't really know apa mau komen mcm ne sbb tak pernah lagi shot begini.. yang sa tau cantik action shot kau ne.. terang tu orang ada noise sikit ja la tapi cantik.. apa pun well done on your first assignment..

regards, terry

Assalamualaikum Jang,

aku masih bepikir, mana satu shot aku mau post. inda da satu berkenan di hati ku, apakan lagi di hati viewers lain.

yang ini memang ada lawanan sama sifu punya post. macam naik sama tinggi di puncak menara, duduk sama rendah di podium pulak kamu orang ini. sama bagusnya gambar kamu.

aku salute!


Hai geng,

Sia pun macam terus hilang ingatan bila sia menengok ko punya gambar nie. POV memang cun, stunning bah nie. For me you make good composition. Composition is actually what you want. Composition is a tricky thing to master. Unlike the techical aspects of picture taking, composition cannot be measured like exposure, white balance or focus. It's a sbjective things that requireds personal taste and an appreciation for a range of aspects such as line, shape, perspective and value.

Hi Ruslan,

A great perspective shot combined with action. I could imagine that 2 seconds is like only a split second when you're trying to compose a shot on a target that's moving at high speed while you're trying to make sure you do not drop with him.. only without the chute. A good shot for with good composition despite being under pressure and some risk. Salute!

hello Ruslan

Welcome to TL community and as new photographer from Sabah, you are under the right group of company to share your experience.

This is a fine example of how you can learn and share photography work with this group. Very well composed and good exposure setting to yield such a nice action shot of jumper. Sharp and clarity with a good choice of backdrop. Keep sharing and posting.


Great action shot amigo, great colors and perspective. Felicidades. TFS. :)

Hello Ruslan.

Excellent image, nice composition and colors.

Jose Luis.

This photo is interesting as it contains bright coloured subjects. The manifestation of the rules of the third, the background is nice pestel and soft.
All these complement into one good shot.
