Happy Time

Happy time at Chinatown’s Kreta Ayer market. Taken with Panasonic GF1 and Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm f/1.7 lens.

The Silhouette

I like shooting bokeh (the out of focus area of photographic image). I shot the above using the Panasonic GF1 and Minolta MD Rokkor f/1.7 lens. I bought the lens from eBay for US$ 40. The lens was probably manufactured in the early 1980s, based on my quick search on the internet.MORE +

Shooting Everyday Photos – Picnic at Botanic Gardens with Daddy

The only thing your child ask from you is your TIME. They don’t care about money. They just want your TIME.

My daughter asked me to go to Botanic Gardens with her this morning. She just wanted to have a picnic with me, she said. So, we went and spent about 3 hours there. We sat down, we ran, we played, we walked and we talked. Just that. And oh .. ice cream and cold drink too as we both were so thirsty. So, see above, the daddy and his daughter having picnic at Botanic Gardens, shot with Panasonic GF1 and 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens.MORE +

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

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 +


I shot this couple weeks ago when I was testing my Panasonic GF1 with Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.4. I love the bokeh. Do you?MORE +

Abstract With GF1 + Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f1.4

I have been testing my Panasonic GF1 a lot lately and I am getting in love with it more and more everyday. It’s small and powerful enough for me to carry it with me everyday. The pancake 20mm f1.7 lens is small and wonderful. But what makes me love it even more is the fact that I can use my M-mount Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f1.4 with an adapter. True that it’s not that easy to manually focus the lens on the GF1, but I love the process of creating an image with it. And today I wanted to test the bokeh produced by the lens on GF1.MORE +
