About Us

We offer our services to the sustainability and conservation of our beloved Nature

The Photo Group is a special interest group within the MNS Selangor Branch.

While the origins of the group are unclear, it owes its existence to a number of dedicated and committed photographers who have headed the Photogroup over the years.

The current Group Coordinator, Alex Foong, returned to lead the coordinator’s role in 2005 and is the driving force behind the group today.

The Photogroup was formed for MNS members with an interest in Nature Photography and Nature Appreciation. The group welcomes all photographers whatever their level of knowledge or experience. Experienced members assist newer members to get the most out of their photography, whatever their interests.

Lecture and workshop sessions are held regularly for both novice and experienced photographers. Practical day trips, weekend or longer expeditions are organised every few months to special sites around Malaysia and overseas.

We learn from each other to help improve our nature photography.


With Nature in mind, MNS Photogroup Selangor Branch organizes monthly photographic trips lead by experienced and seasoned Photographers. The focus area include Nature, Landscapes, Wildlife, Fine Arts and etc., which will be followed by review plus knowledge sharing sessions on images taken and talks from experts in the fields of photography.

Photographic Aperture 101

The basic theory of how a camera works, including some basic optics, and also the idea of exposure and how we control it with the exposure triangle. Here we will be drawing upon what we have learned to understand the first point on the exposure triangle – aperture – and how it works to create your photo.

Photographic Exposure 101

When you think of the craft or art of photography, you must immediately think of exposure. Exposure is a critical element that determines what is actually recorded on film or the image sensor. There are three adjustable elements that control the exposure – ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed. .

Making Effective Panoramas

Panoramas are wide-format photography that capture images that feature elongated fields of view. Typically, specialized software or equipment is used to produce this aesthetic effect
