Street Fashion Show at Orchard Road

Finally, some shots from my Canon DSLR here. I still use my DSLR for all my paid jobs over at Masakecil but I know lately, for my personal works, I have “slowed” down myself by using manual cameras, rangefinder and film. But, my DSLR is here to stay.  :)

I was at Orchard Road last night with my family when I shot these images of people walking in front of the headless mannequin as if they were doing a fashion show on the street. Since the lighting was constant, I set the exposure metering to Manual. It was ISO 4000 at f/2 and 1/160 sec. The lens was the Canon 135mm f/2L, hence I needed a fast enough shutter speed to minimize the handshake effect.

I love the prominent red color in these images. Enjoy!MORE +

Raining in Orchard Road

I was at Takashimaya, Orchard Road earlier this afternoon after meeting my cousin. It was raining heavily. I decided to shoot while my wife and daughter were sitting inside to rest their legs after few hours of walking earlier. I borrowed my wife umbrella and started walking to shoot some pictures. Umbrella in one hand and my Olympus PEN E-P3 with 12mm f/2 lens in another hand. The camera was a bit wet since the rain was too heavy for the umbrella to cover. I hope it didn’t do any damage to it.

This is one the shots I took and it’s probably the best I took this afternoon. Hope everyone had a great weekend. MORE +

What To Shoot In Singapore – Orchard Road at Night

All shots with my micro four third Panasonic GF1 and 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens, these photos are intended to show how lovely and vibrant Orchard Road is at night. I didn’t actually go there to shoot as I was there for a night out with my family on Friday night, but I couldn’t resist, so I shot some photos. MORE +
