Swirly In The Soup

Written by • Jul 10th, 2010 • Category: Others
After being notified about my Lensbaby aperture disc design being one of the runner ups, I was contacted by Picture-Soup.com for a short interview regarding it. For those wondering how those custom discs which made it in the list (and the awesome winning one) looks like, do check out the article because they did publish images of the discs as well. Check out the article here. That’s all for this entry. đŸ˜€ Gotta go get some sleep because I’ll be travelling up to Malaysia early in the morning … with… >> read more


Swirly Got Appy!

Written by • Jun 25th, 2010 • Category: Others
The Lensbaby’s ‘Get Appy!’ contest results is finally out! The contest was about submitting designs and sample photos of our own custom aperture discs and (as usual) at the last minute … I managed to do up a simple aperture disc design and took some test shots for submission. I didn’t want something ‘too clean’, so I made a curly shape with some jagged sides for that ‘raw’ feel. I made it into the list of runner-ups! Although they ain’t gonna give no prizes (duh!) to the runner-ups, but my… >> 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


Newbie Made It!

Written by • Apr 5th, 2010 • Category: Others
I recently registered an account with Lomography’s website for Fitzand and uploaded some of the photos he took in their gallery. Soon after that, I saw a photo rumble asking for submissions of newbies’ self portraits and of course I helped him submit one from this recent Fisheye2 roll of self portraits. Today the results were announced and … He made it!!! Yay!!! Guess he won’t understand too much of it when I explain to it to him later tonight but I’m gonna give him my Fisheye2 cam as a… >> read more


Back Then [Part 1]

Written by • Mar 5th, 2010 • Category: Others
Spent the last 1 hour digging out some photos to be re-uploaded to my blog gallery. I recently noticed a couple of them got screwed up after I uploaded files of the duplicate name into them. Strange enough the gallery was smart enough to rename the new file with an extension (eg. 1_0.jpg) but the other (original file that’s called 1.jpg) ended up identical with the new one. Duh! So far I’ve only managed to find out 2 cases and got them rectified. Do drop me a note if you… >> read more

Not too long ago, I read that Lomography is inviting submissions of designs for a special edition LC-A+ camera and we are allowed to use all sorts of ideas, material etc etc to come out with our own versions of the camera. Not having any knowledge in designing nor good at it … I still thought I could try shove in a couple of ideas and see if miracles can happen. Hahaha!
