About Jefflin

Hi, nice to meet you here, I am black & white fine-art photographer from Selangor, Malaysia. Specialising in long exposure in seascapes & Architecture, minimalistic and documentary photography.

I’m very much influenced by this sentence:
” Artist is trying to express his inner world by using objects from the outside world as symbols. It is not what you capture that matters, it is how you interpret it that matters and will elevate it from a snapshot to a work of art”.  (by Stieglitz)

For me, photography is not just record but more to interpreting the scene to the piece of art through post production by using computing software like photoshop.

Now is a digital world, everyone uses electronic gadgets to view the products created out of photographers’ hard work. These actual works indeed have to be printed out and hung on the wall for appreciation, this should be called a real art. Is this my ultimate goal in photography? No! Of course not, I think the experience and level in photography should be deep into the heart, not simply from the external compliment.
