Sekinchan Photography Trip

Photography Trip Sekinchan

One of the things that almost all photographers in the Klang Valley will do is make that Sekinchan photography trip which is a simple day trip here.

Sekinchan is well known for its beautiful paddy fields and tends to attract a lot of landscape photographers to this part of Selangor.

And the best part about this location is that you can do it half a day or one full day for those wanting to fully explore Sekinchan.

As I have been involved in photography since the 90s, I have only visited Sekinchan back in the late 90s once, and that was it.

My recent trip here was the second time visiting Sekinchan. I decided to explore with a local photography group from Meet Up called Kuala Lumpur Photography Club this time around.

I've also been a member of Meet Up since September 2011 but hardly ever did explore much with the many groups here.

Anyway, the time came when the Covid19 pandemic finally toned down in October of 2021 and when state borders started to open up in Malaysia. Many took the opportunity to travel back to their hometowns.

I decided to explore with a Sekinchan photography trip organised by Mr Ching from the Kuala Lumpur Photography Group on 16th October 2021.

We met up at a Shell petrol station in Sekinchan town, where we proceeded to a local coffee shop for breakfast with everyone in the group. There were around 18 of us that day, non of whom I know.

After our local Sekinchan breakfast, we headed to the famous paddy fields, and this time of the year, the harvest was a beautiful bright green.

Below are random photos taken during my Sekinchan photography trip, and I used both my Galaxy Z Flip3 5G smartphone and DSLR to capture the bird and telephoto pictures.

But in this article, I will be focusing on smartphone photos only, and they are not edited, only cropped and added my watermark on them.

I have to say, the trip to Sekinchan for photography was quite exciting because it has been a while since I went on an excursion like this.

Overall, I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to just have a quick and easy photography outing without having to spend a night.

To me, the thrill of getting out of the city was good enough to excite my trapped soul after months of lockdowns. And this Sekinchan photography trip was probably timed perfectly.
