Lensbaby Velvet 56 – A Test Drive

Written by • Apr 29th, 2015 • Category: Lead Story
After (some miserable) days of waiting, I finally got to give the new Lensbaby Velvet 56 a quick test drive. As I had only a couple of hours to spare last Saturday, all I did was to run some random shots using that fun (and sexy!) lens. After an hour of testing, I have already fallen in love with it. Yes it is quite different from the previous Lensbaby offerings where you can move the sweet spot (minus the fisheye one which I will someday try purchase when I sell… >> read more


Korea 2013 In Analogue

Written by • Apr 23rd, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
Despite my attempt to shoot more rolls of film this trip,  I ended up coming back with only a couple of rolls. This first roll is a Lomography Tunsten 64 cross processed and shot using my precious Ricoh GR21. To be honest … I am trying hard to get back my trigger happy ways. I had my LC-A+ with me but it saw only a handful of exposures before going back into my bag. I think I might have just picked the right film to load … as the cherry… >> read more


Few Randoms From Korea

Written by • Apr 21st, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
Eight days on a vacation in Korea … and I came back with tons of photos of Fitzand, few random shots from the streets (digital) and exposed just 2 rolls of film. Don’t ask me where did my trigger happy habit went. If you happen to see it … give me a call. Anyway … while I am struggling to go through the tons of photos of Fitzand … here are the other random shots I took … mostly street photos that I snapped one evening when the mood came.… >> read more


dothebag mono 08

Written by • Apr 7th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
In the process of making a comeback (ie. spending time snapping more photos) … I picked up a new camera bag to replace my Kelly Moore ‘Boy’ bag (which was a big disappointment and you’ll read more about it later in this entry). I must admit I have one too many camera bags at home but I couldn’t resist this full leather one from monochrom (site in German). The name ‘dothebag’ is pretty cool too eh? 😀 dothebag mono 08 It is of the right size (for me) as I’m… >> read more


Test Driving The Sony RX1

Written by • Feb 25th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
So this is one hell of an expensive camera … one that has caused much excitement (and disappointment about the price) with a full frame sensor and a killer lens. I took one for a short test drive to see how awesome it is and managed to capture a handful of photos today. Street photography is fun with this almost silent camera. The 35mm lens makes it a wonderful tool for street photography. Colors are pretty awesome although I prefer using the ‘neutral’ setting instead of the ‘standard’ one. I’ll… >> read more


Loving Sunshine

Written by • Feb 17th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
It has been a while since I’ve updated my blog and since Fitzand went to bed very early today (2 sessions of skating lessons did the trick!) … I dug out few photos I took some weeks back (before the Lunar New Year) from my window … of the sunset. I’m one who prefers the sunrise (despite the crazy pain of waking up real early) but it doesn’t matter … it is still the same sun that’s gonna rise the next morning. These were shot using my Fujifilm XS-1. Although… >> read more


Working Out The DSLR

Written by • Jan 29th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
My DSLR is probably the most neglected camera in my cabinet and thus I told myself that I should give it some workout yesterday when I brought Fitzand out for some outdoor fun. The weather wasn’t too friendly and we were at the Punggol Waterfront pretty early … at about 230pm. Still we had fun and my old trigger happy habit kicked in and I ended up with tons of photos (of Fitzand).   It almost ended up in a disaster because I forgot to insert a SD card into the… >> read more


The Few Shots

Written by • Aug 10th, 2012 • Category: Lead Story
Before I go take a rest after a super long (and tiring) day … here are the only few digital shots I took today. I know many of us here in Singapore have grown super tired looking at photos from the Gardens By The Bay but ermm … here are the few from me. I do have a few fireworks shots taken during the National Day celebration last night (from my window) but I ain’t gonna bore you guys by posting them. 😛 Hey I’ve got a starburst!!!! Ermmm my… >> read more


Little Boss Turns 4!

Written by • Jan 5th, 2011 • Category: Lead Story
Almost an hour past midnight and it is already the 5th of January. This means it is my little boss’s birthday today! He went to bed earlier when I told him that tomorrow’s gonna be a long day … with a short birthday celebration with his friends at the childcare and then a trip to the zoo. He got his presents a little early this year (last week) and when we asked where he wanna go after the birthday celebration … he said … ‘to the zoo!!!’. Time seems to… >> read more


Black + White Arrived

Written by • Aug 5th, 2010 • Category: Lead Story
The postman came knocking today and handed me a parcel from Japan. Yeah … I was pretty excited to receive it because in it … the white edition of the Fujifilm Natura Classica! I struggled for a short while when I heard about this white version and decided to *cough* break my piggy bank for one. I’m pretty broke now and wifey’s gonna kill me when she sees next month’s credit card bill. Sexy in white! For those living outside Japan, you can get your Classica from the Circle Rectangle… >> read more
