Shooting Everyday Photos – The Two of Us

I told you I am in the mood for photoblogging. Three posts within 2 hours.

I took a half day leave today and went to Haji Lane with my wife after sending our daughter to school. We stopped by at Pluck to have iced coffee and ice cream to cool ourselves. It was a hot date. BTW, The rum and raisin ice cream MORE +

After The Rain

Fresh, after the rain. Images of leaves taken after the rain using Panasonic GF1 and 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens. All shot at f/1.7 and ISO 100.MORE +

How Do You Want To Be Remembered?

All these leaves had fallen and died. They are no longer in their glorious color of bright green. They are now brown, torn, curled and soon they will be decomposed. But they are always remembered as the vital plant organ responsible for the process of photosynthesis. The process that produces food for the plant and produces oxygen for us, the human beings. We need oxygen to breathe and to live. They are alwaysMORE +

What To Shoot In Singapore – Kampong Glam

As mentioned in my previous post, I took my Panasonic GF1 and Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.4 for a walk in Kampong Glam. Actually I spent most of the time only along the Haji Lane, so this set of photos only covers a small portion of what you can shoot in Kampong Glam. MORE +

Shooting Everyday Photos – Drawing

All shots with Micro Four Thirds camera, Panasonic GF1 and Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.4 lens. Manual focusing with this lens on GF1 is challenging. Stretching your arms out so you can see the image on the LCD when focusing will cause you to be unstable. Hence, I really hope that GF3 will have a built-in high resolution viewfinder. GF2 has already been in the market for several months, but I didn’t want to upgrade because it still doesn’t have the built-in viewfinder. Yes, it has an optional external viewfinder you can buy, but I don’t quite like the idea as I want to keep the entire setup small.MORE +

Street Photography in Ho Chi Minh City

Street photography is fun in Ho Chi Minh City. It has lots of space for people to go on foot and it’s safe. I wasn’t able to explore many places in Ho Chi Minh City though, as the time was limited, but my wife and I had a great time. I will let the photos speak for themselves, so enjoy.MORE +

Stroboscopic Flash Photography

I seldom use flash. Very very seldom even though I have had an external flash, Canon 580 EX, for few years already. I love natural light and any other available / ambient light when shooting. Almost all of my photos at Masakecil were taken without flash. But every now and then, I use flash for some creative photography, like the ones here. They were shot using stroboscopic flash technique.MORE +

A Setting Sun and Haiku

gently it goes down
as the sky turning to dark
another day gone

Boracay is well known for its beautiful sunset. The sun is setting, hiding beneath the horizon, just in front of you.MORE +

Children Photography – Shooting Everyday Photos

Photographing childhood means much more than just taking portrait shots of your children. It means photographing memories. Sometimes, some of these memories cannot be repeated anymore, or sometimes they become very important because they happen for the very first time. MORE +
