clumsy_human, better to go nearer to the subject. I'm sure that they are quite friendly and accommodating if you have asked them politely.

In fact, I think the majority of the performers won't mind you shooting their pictures if you could also shoot some specials for them for keep sake.

No lar, wait till the next poh toh (hungry ghost) or the 9 emperors celebration. These are the best time to capture these traditional performances.

No taboos or pantangs. Just ask the manager/person-in-charge politely. Compared to Ampang, I think the performers in Klang are more friendly.

Thanks kiankheong for your comment you are right, they are all very friendly indeed. and i did have a few close-up... above are few of my personal preference.

And also thank you for answering (wanted to call my friend for the location of that place, and saw your reply)... others questions... because I have no idea whats that place call... I followed my friends family there.
