Kyoto : Color Overdose

Written by • Nov 29th, 2013 • Category: Digital stuffs
I’m back! Okay … maybe I have lost my mojo to shoot for a while now but in an attempt to get back on track, I am shooting more during this trip to Kyoto. I have an almost finished roll in my LC-W. Yeah … a little too slow compared to my old trigger-happy ways but hey … a roll is better than no roll at all. Isn’t it? Anyway … here are some digital ones … shot using the Pentax K3 I picked up recently. Lovely camera! Here are… >> read more


A Casetagram Case

Written by • Jul 19th, 2013 • Category: Others
Shoot it. Place it. Case it. That’s what Castetagram claims they do. I recently chanced upon this interesting online phone/tablet cover printing service and decided to give it a try. The 2 items I ordered from them arrived today and since I am very satisfied with them … I’ll do a short ‘review’ on Casetagram here in my (recently much neglected blog). Designing your own cases are a breeze using just a few simple steps on their website. Oh … by the way … they can be found at casetagram.com.… >> read more


About Keri

Written by • May 21st, 2012 • Category: Someone : About
It has been a long time since I’ve done any feature/interview for the ‘About Someone’ section and when I decided to invite someone to participate in this next one … I immediately thought of this photographer I got to know through Lensbaby some years back. Some of you might remember reading about her works in one of my blog entry about her photo book, Portland Vignettes. I’m a big fan of her works! A brief intro taken from her website … “Keri Friedman is a photographer living in Portland, OR.… >> read more


Battlefield Pinhole Cam!

Written by • Jul 29th, 2011 • Category: Others
Came across this super duper awesome DIY camera tutorial … to make a ‘Battlefield Pinhole Camera’ by photographer Steven Monteau and thought maybe some of you might wanna build something similar. I was going ‘whoaaaa!’ and itching to try it out but I’ve hardly got enough free time to work on these fun projects lately. 🙁 Anyway … the camera takes 3 rolls of 35mm film and exposes them simultaneously! I’ve seen some photos taken with 2 35mm strips on a Holga but this one … 3 rolls … and… >> read more


So Dead

Written by • Jul 22nd, 2011 • Category: Toys
I’m so gonna get this! Ermm … should I? I have my last Double Money voucher worth US$50 and I might just burn it on this new baby … “Wrapped in Italian red goat leather and decorated with fertility symbols, the Russia Day Lomo LC-A+ features the original Russian Minitar 1 Lens which started the Lomographic movement. Limited to just 2000 units, the Russia Day Lomo LC-A+ comes presented in a velvet box and includes a special LC-A+ camera strap which features a Russia Day emblem (one of 5 designs)… >> read more


Toy Cameras : The Book

Written by • Mar 1st, 2011 • Category: Others
The postman arrived today with a book titled ‘Toy Cameras’ by Kevin Meredith (aka lomokev). As I was having (just another) hell-ish day at work, I couldn’t wait til I get home to sip some coffee (no beer!) and enjoy browsing it. It is a very nicely designed book, filled with lots of information about toy cameras as well as lots and lots of photos taken by those cameras. Ahem! Ermm … I was invited to contribute some photos for the Diana Multi Pinhole camera section! 😀 It feels so… >> read more


Go On! Take My Life!

Written by • Jan 27th, 2011 • Category: Others
I saw the ‘Love Is In The Air’ special edition of the Diana Mini before I went to bed and said to myself that luckily it ain’t a Diana F+ instead. My credit card bill for the Tori edition has not even arrive and I wouldn’t wanna see another edition of Diana F+ causing more damage to my wallet. I must admit that I got a little excited when I saw the cool looking flash. Luckily I ain’t into the Minis. 😛 So I happily went to bed but when… >> read more


Unboxing Tori

Written by • Dec 30th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I shiver whenever I hear my name being called while waiting at a dentist queue but it is a totally different story when I hear my name being called while I’m busy pounding my keyboard at my work desk. Of course the voice (of the person calling my name) must be from a stranger … and that is usually … the postman! A large parcel arrived today (a little late for Christmas but who’s complaining?!) and it in … the Tori Amos special edition Diana F+ camera! I was dead… >> read more


Cyan Shine Shines!

Written by • Dec 13th, 2010 • Category: Others
A friend from Lomography recently updated me about this Cyan Shine Magazine which caters to the lomography, lo-fi, analog & film crowd. They’ve just launched Issue #0 and it is available for download now (in PDF format). I downloaded it last night and I must say I’m pretty impressed with the contents. Lots and lots of beautiful cool photos and it is not peppered with adverts or some zzzzzzzz text. It features great photos from lots of great Lomographers/analogue lovers. The download (of the softcopy magazine) is a little slow… >> read more


Be Very Afraid!

Written by • Oct 21st, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
I don’t mean to scare anyone out there but these are some of my test/experimental shots I did just now with my Instax Mini 55i and an Optrixx Camera (given to me by the famous Cyanwater). The Optrixx Camera isn’t really a camera, but rather a traditional optical amusement thingie. Since the Instax camera isn’t the type where you can actually see what the lens ‘sees’, it was a matter of trying out and pray something turns out okay. The Optrixx … a cool present from Auntie Cyanwater 😛 I… >> read more
