i am off to Melacca

just a quick update, i am gg to Melacca from 24-26 Nov.

apparently my mum got a 20% off for hotels or something, so we are gg there to see my dad's cousin. She just got a new house. and we are there to have a look. It's daddy's birthday today.

HAPPY Birthday!!!

was browsing through my mum's lenses for her film SLR. and found a 28mm F/2.8 Tonika. Blardy old. but blardy good!!!! it is manual focus though and also i have to do my own exposure assessment, no metering. Love shooting with it because it makes me think a lot before i shoot. It's a prime lens i suppose, no change of zoom, mum calls it standard lens, dad calls it fixed lens. It's interesting to see them both show me their lenses. Some are older than me 0.o

Take care and have fun.

Good luck to those having exams. Like MR Edwin Yang and mm other people in NUS

some photos are up on my flickr. but mm think forgot to rotate some. iritating. as photoshop and adobe bridge auto rotates the photos and so i forget to rotate them as i think they are rotated... u catch my drift.

good thing didnt have to cycle today. if not i would have been mummified. But still i am tired.

But the company was good. and It was all out, we were so glad, it is a great day today.

photos are still in post processing, will upload them when i am done with them. now only have 2 uploaded.

places i went so far and pictures i took...

  1. post exams. timsum and random shots after exams
  2. strawberry farm and Brighton beach wif my housemate as the model!
  3. timsum with bambie and ling and the others
  4. Dinner with the singaporean meddies at Daryl's place
  5. Day out with Joanna who came from Brisbane, great shjots from St. Kilda's beach, best sunset ever.
still waiting for my 50mm F/1.8 to arrive. taking soooo long.
realised i should have gotten a wide angle lens rather than a 50mm prime =(

and i learnt how to take portraits at beach after experimenting so much with Jo.

Deviant art

i realise deviantart is a fantastic place for artists to meet, to learn.

i have a few people to thank that got me here in photography, i wont say very very far yet, but well it is far.

  1. Ming Jian for boosting my knowledge of photography with the book he bought for me on my 21st birthday. and from there i started exploring different techniques
  2. Xin Yi for constantly challenging the boundaries of composition. This has made me think how i can better compose EVERY photo i take.
  3. Becky for buying a book for advanced techniques that will last me a life time. it's like giving gatorade to me while i am in a marthon. rejuvenation.
  4. Robby for his advie and guidance
  5. Ezra for making me realise that it is important to know the boons and banes of your camera and how to exploit them.
  6. anyone else who has inspired me whatsoever or allow me to use them as a model lol.

i was trying to find portraits or people shots so that i can emulate one for a self portrait. and i encountered problems:
  1. there are almost no male popular shots
  2. if there are, they are usually nude or sexy.
  3. and so my search for good and unindecent shots for males continues. after exams.
and now my collection is almost complete
  1. nikon d80
  2. tamron 70-300mm F/4-5.6 LD macro 1:2
  3. tamron 28-80 mm F/3.5-5.6
  4. Lowepro Nova1 camera bag
  5. 52, 58, 62 mm filters for my lenses (including polarisers for 52 and 58mm)
  6. the 50mm F/1.8 prime lens is on it's way from Hong Kong. hope it comes soon so i can find someone to shoot with it.
  7. i am just short of a wide angle lens. i was thinking maybe i will get it when i earn some money from either shooting or from some other source of income.
good luck to everyone for tmr's last paper. i think i need all the luck i can get. i am scared seriously.
