Sunday Sunny Rehab

Written by • Oct 4th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
It was my first time participating in the annual Sunny Rehab organized by LomotionSG and since it was at a pretty nice place for some fun for Fitzand, I brought along the little one and his mommy for the outing. Of course I lugged along some cold beer to cool down on a pretty warm day. They had a ’36 frames’ competition but since I had to take care of Fitzand, I decided to give it a miss. To cure my trigger happy itchy fingers, I just went around firing… >> read more


Ultra Short Trailer

Written by • Sep 13th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
This is something I thought I would just post in my Facebook for fun but since I’ve made the effort to put it together … I thought I might as well post it here in my blog. Unlike my other videos that waste many minutes of your life watching … this one is super ultra short and I guess you won’t be complaining. 😀 I was just killing time during the weekend when Fitzand was taking his nap and shot a few short video clips with my Pentax K-x and… >> read more


Creative Aperture : Test 1

Written by • May 31st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Found a couple of blank aperture discs in my drawer (for the Lensbaby) just the other day and thought it might be cool to try doing some unique ones instead of those made by using craft punchers. It can also try submitting them for the Lensbaby’s ‘Creative Aperture Kit Contest’ and try my luck there. The usual problem of not having time to go out shooting was still bugging me, so I had to try take some test shots from inside my car, at home and while waiting for wifey… >> read more


Lensbabies + K-x : A Test

Written by • May 11th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
After a short break from using my Lensbaby, finally I’ve ‘migrated’ the cool lenses to Pentax mount and since the K-x will be almost ‘permanently married’ to the Lensbabies … I had to give it a test run to figure out how the camera will meter with the lenses. Lugged the setup to Malaysia during the weekend … hoping to be able to find time to take some shots and get used to the new combo … time somehow zapped past real fast and I ended up with only a… >> read more


LB Soft Focus Optic : Analogue Test

Written by • Jan 3rd, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
After some initial test with my DSLR, I decided to try out the Lensbaby Soft Focus Optic (SFO) on my cheap old film SLR. I know that the Lensbaby lenses can work very well on that SLR but I was a little worried about the metering when using the SFO. This is because of the many weird ‘holes’ (ie. apertures) on the aperture disc. I found my SLR already loaded with a roll of Reala 100 film and had a few shots already taken … and took me a while… >> read more


Got Dog, Got Lalang

Written by • Jan 1st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
The title of this blog entry is inspired by Irorus who replied in my other entry (Fireworks : NY Eve 2010). For those who are wondering what ‘lalang’ is … they are actually those ermm … long-ish grass. Ermm … I don’t know what they’re called but ‘lalang’ is a Malay name for it. She posted that comment before I managed to post up this blog entry … and so I ‘stole’ the title from her comment. Hahaha! My favourite shot of the day. The main ‘model’ is my friend’s… >> read more


Lensbaby FE and SF : Unboxing

Written by • Dec 24th, 2009 • Category: Toys
Finally I made it … taking the first step into changing my lifestyle a little by resisting all invitations to go for some X’mas dinners and drinking! I know my plan to start a change is supposed to be from the 1st of January 2010, but I thought I could start doing a little bit of ‘rehearsal’ now. Hahaha! I took my family out for a short nice dinner and came home to play with Fitzand. I also did the unboxing of the 3 ‘toys’ that Lensbaby sent me recently… >> read more


My Babies

Written by • Dec 2nd, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Last week we had the opportunity to go for a short open-top bus ride along Orchard Road to view the Christmas lightings. Fitzand was going ‘yahooo! yippeee!’ all the way and I was busy trying to get some decent shots on the moving bus. I had my Lensbaby Composer with me and used a custom aperture disc like what I did last year for some fun and cool photos. Somehow I ended up with only two photos that I like. Maybe after the bunch of photos last year that are… >> read more


New Lensbaby Fun!

Written by • Oct 22nd, 2009 • Category: Others
From those cool people who brought us some special fun into the world of photography … Lensbaby … has just launched two new products to their already fun line of lenses and accessories … the Fisheye Optic and also the Soft Focus optic. The Fisheye optic works with the Composer but will need a special adapter to work well with the Muse. While the website didn’t mention anything about the Control Freak, I assume it is not compatible. Do correct me if I’m wrong. For those big fans of fisheye… >> read more


Plastic Surgery

Written by • Oct 11th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
While the doctor might need to melt a hundred Diana cameras to get enough plastic to make me look real good … I hope you don’t get worried by this entry’s title. I am still the same me. 😀 The plastic surgery was meant for my Lensbaby instead. I wasn’t really impressed by the plastic optic kit for my Composer & Muse. Somehow although they claim that it is a plastic lens … it just wasn’t good bad enough. I wanted at least something as lousy as a Diana camera’s… >> read more
