I like playing with multiple exposure function in a camera. While I know combining images in Photoshop can yield the same result, but I like doing it in the camera. The above was shot with Fuji X100s’ multiple exposure function switched on. The camera was shot first and then followed by the box of Ilford PANF Plus 50. That’s my Olympus OM-1n film camera. A cool way to tell what film inside the camera now. :)
Below are two multiple exposure images shot about ten years ago when I was still shooting only negative and slide films. There were shot with Minolta Dynax 5 film camera. The first one was on Kodak EBX slide film and the second one was on Kodak E100VS slide film. I need to find the original slides to rescan them to get higher resolution files. I used the double exposure function of the camera to shoot two exposures so I could position the full moon where I wanted it to be.

I have been shooting leaf since probably as long as I started photography about ten years ago. There is something about leaf that always attracts me to it. Maybe the colors, the textures, patterns, lines, etc.
My 8 year old daughter and I spent some time shooting leaf this afternoon. She used my old Panasonic GF1 and the pancake lens 20mm f/1.7 and I used the Fuji X100s in macro mode. The three images here are my favorites from this afternoon shoot.MORE +
I brought the Fuji X100s out to shoot in Little India late last night and spent few hours there till past midnight. This time I set the camera to shoot in RAW + JPEG mode. All the images here are the JPEG files, straight out of the camera. No post-processing other than resizing them for web usage. All were shot at ISO 6400 except for two of them.
Enjoy the photos. MORE +
I rented the newly released Fuji X100s last weekend and had only few hours to play with it. But, that’s enough!!! Enough for me to rent it again today! Will play with it again some more. For those who are interested in renting camera and lenses in Singapore, visit this Camera Rental Centre near Clarke Quay.
So, that’s me shooting with the Fuji X100s near the construction site of the Jalan Besar MRT station. I managed to draw the attention of some people walking there.
All images here were shot in RAW format and then converted to JPEG with almost no post processing. I cropped two of them and converted one to black and white. I actually shot it in black and white but I don’t know why it’s showing in color when I downloaded it.
First impression? MORE +
Shot with iPhone last Sunday night near the construction site of the Jalan Besar MRT station.

Mobile photography of young banana leaf, shot with iPhone 4s using the 645Pro app. Minor post-processing was done on iPhone using the FilterStorm app.
I was making my way to the Bugis train station from Bencoolen when it rained that night in September last year. I stopped in front of a shop, took shelter from the rain and started taking panning shots of people walking with their umbrellas and shopping bags above their heads using the Hipstamatic app on iPhone 4s. The ‘film’ and ‘lens’ combination was John S Lens and Blackey SuperGrain black and white film. My favorite Hipstamatic combination for black and white images. What’s your favorite Hipstamatic setting for black and white shots?
Enjoy the rest of the images below.

Playing UNO at home. Photos plus her own handwriting. She wrote it using the WACOM stylus and tablet.
I had no idea that where I stood when I took the photo above, one evening in December 2005, would become a shopping mall, hotel and one of the two Singapore’s first casinos. Slightly more than a year after I took this photo, the construction started in February 2007 and the rest is history. From June 2010, the site has become the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, The Shoppes and Casino. It’s Singapore’s first Integrated Resort at Marina Bay.

Thian Hock Keng temple is the oldest and the most important Hokkien temple in Singapore. Its construction started in 1839 and was completed in 1842. In 1973, it was gazetted as a national monument.
Image was shot last night on iPhone 4s using the 645Pro app. The Jpeg file that came out from this app was 8MB! Enough details for Jpeg.

I was going through my archive and found this image that I took at Sri Krishna Rajendra bus terminal in Bangalore, India in 2006. The man was lighting his cigarette as the night was fast approaching. It was almost 6pm and at ISO 1600 and f/2.8, I only managed to get a shutter speed of 1/60 sec. Shot with my very first full frame DSLR, the Canon 1Ds Mark II and 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens. I took a lot of street portraits during my 2006 trip there. I miss India. Anyone want to sponsor? MORE +
