Fisheye2 Vs Fathers’ Day

Written by • Jun 18th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film
Happy Fathers’ Day!!! Now time sure zap past real fast and it is another Fathers’ Day. It was just last year that I did a short video for the ‘Papa Amigo‘ feature in Lomography’s website. This year Fitzand made me some lovely cards in school and yesterday we had an early celebration … having a hotpot lunch and some beer in the evening. I got wasted downing too much beer during Mothers’ Day … so this time … I had only 3 pints. 😛 Today I loaded a roll of… >> read more


The MUBI Poison

Written by • May 23rd, 2012 • Category: Others
After resisting getting one (or more) of those very delicious looking stripey yummy edition of the La Sardina (the Diana F+ clones are already sending me to my grave), my weak ol’ heart was put to test again when I saw this very sleek version of the Lomokino lately. The MUBI edition! Isn’t it sexy??!! It’s the perfect match – Lomography have joined forces with MUBI to bring you the first LomoKino special edition. Featuring the signature of the Palme D’Or winning Director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, the LomoKino MUBI Edition is… >> read more


Lazy Afternoon Snaps

Written by • Jun 30th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Apart from gulping down lots of yummy beer yesterday at Whitchurch Rd area, we did loiter around that area for some photos. At one point … we were even told that ‘hey … this is private property!’ when we were shooting some swing in some open area. Duh. Anyway … still I managed to finish a roll of long expired Kodak T400N 120 and got it developed today. Like the BW400CN, the T400CN doesn’t give too much of a contrast. Still pretty usable for times when I wanna shoot black… >> read more


LC-W : Streetshoot Tests

Written by • Jun 22nd, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Gave the LC-W a test run on the streets recently and as a conclusion … I think being so super wide makes things very challenging. I remember being not too far from the subjects but the photos seem to show that the people (aka subjects) are further away. Good thing is that the wideness of the lens helps capture most of the ‘action’ even though sometimes I just roughly hold the camera up and snap without looking thru the viewfinder. The lens on the LC-W is pretty darn sharp and… >> read more


Strangers

Written by • May 15th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Street photography is something I always enjoy doing and with the X100 … now I’m trying to ‘relaunch’ my love for such photography. I sure wish the X100 has the ‘snap focus’ thingie that the Ricoh GRD3 offers but then … it still ain’t too bad as a street photography cammie. 😀 No longer having the luxury to take some hours off to just roam the streets to capture photos … I can only whip out my cam and fire shots while out with my boy or on family outings.… >> read more


Black Frame : Last Two

Written by • Apr 3rd, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Finished my first (and only) pack of the Impossible Project’s PX600 UV+ black frame film today. After the first few photos, someone asked if this film still has some sepia tint to them and that made me take a second look at the earlier photos in the day light. Hmm … if my old fuzzyeyeballs are not tricking me … they do actually have a little sepia tint to them. I scanned my earlier photos in black & white mode and thus they look a little different under the daylight.… >> read more


Streets Of Chinatown

Written by • Jan 25th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
While crawling the streets of Chinatown with Fitzand and his teachers + friends this morning … I switched my E-P1 to my favourite mode for streetshooting (grainy black & white) and fired some shots. Every time I got the opportunity to do some street shoot, I’ll keep telling myself that I should do it more often as I somehow love the thrill of getting up close (with a risk) to the subjects and trip the shutter. Maybe I’m sick of living eh? 😀 While I usually don’t bother post processing… >> read more


Taipei : The Streets

Written by • Nov 21st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
About 12 hours  from now and I’ll be (reluctantly) leaving this place. A little too tired to type much now but following the ‘tradition’ of my earlier streetshooting set in Tokyo (here, here, here & here) … I will end this short vacation with some street photos taken with the E-P1 in the ‘grainy black & white’ mode … and just resized for web. I always love the thrill of street shooting. No … not with a long lens hiding from far but to go real close to the ‘action’… >> read more


Fuzzyeyeballs Vs RF

Written by • Aug 31st, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Some of you might already know that I ain’t one who can use a rangefinder camera properly. Blame my old fuzzy eyeballs … I usually have problem focusing with that little patch in the viewfinder. Hahaha! I’ve tried several rangefinders (without film in them) and concluded that I might go blind if I ever finish shooting 36 frames in one. Recently a friend passed me his Bessa R2A and told me to give it a try. I knew it will be quite a challenge but for the fun (and pain)… >> read more


Tokyo : The Streets 4

Written by • May 3rd, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Perhaps the last set of the street shots from Tokyo. I might have one or two hiding in some other folders but for now … these are all I can find and thank God for the batch action in Photoshop … I just ran a batch job to resize them for web. No other editing done on them as they were all shot using my E-PL1 in the Grainy B&W mode. There are a couple of photos in this set that were captured while dining in some crowded shops and… >> read more
