Melaka Photo Walk with Galaxy Z Flip3

Photowalk in Melaka

In October of 2021, I did a quick Melaka Photo Walk with my Galaxy Z Flip3, only around the main Jonker area.

Usually, I would try my best to avoid this part of Melaka due to the large crowds; since it was in mid-October and the government had just opened up interstate travel, few people were around.

So, armed with my Galaxy Z Flip3, I took an afternoon walk around the central part of Jonker Street to photograph some of the colourful buildings and scenes around here.

This is part of my Malaysia Photo Walk Project, where I will do various smartphone photowalks around Malaysia to introduce causal street photography using today's smartphones.

Below are random photos taken with my Galaxy Z Flip3 around Jonker Walk;

Melaka Photo Walk Details

This special smartphone photo walk in Melaka will be introduced in 2022 and conducted by me - David Hogan Jr. It will be a morning session starting around 8.00 AM and finishing around 12.00 Noon.

There is no fee, but you must travel the day before and spend a night in Melaka. Or you can leave K.L at 5.30AM to reach Melaka city by 7.30AM and be back in K.L after lunch.

Anyone interested in joining the Melaka Photo Walk and getting more info can contact me here or through my Malaysia Asia Facebook profile.

I will organise this photo walk for those genuinely interested in exploring their smartphone photography, but you can still bring your mirrorless and DSLR cameras if you like.

Update Jan 2023: I stopped the Melaka Photowalk in 2023 due to my hectic work schedules in Borneo and Southeast Asia, plus my birdwatching activities are also growing.


Melaka is also a UNESCO City and home to some unique structures like the Christ Church, built in 1753 and painted copperish red.

For art lovers, there are numerous works of street art and murals, galleries and even graffiti, while Melaka is also known to be one of the places to see Street Art in Malaysia.

The photos above were taken with my Galaxy Z Flip3 and minimally edited for cropping, contrast, and saturation. I do not depend on software like Lightroom to enhance or change the colours and overall feel.

Samsung's artificial intelligence (A.I.) is advanced, as it can detect the scene to compensate for the overall look and field of the image.

Anyway, the objective of my Melaka photo walk with Galaxy Z Flip3 was to test out the capabilities of the flip phone camera. To my surprise, it turned out exceptionally well.
