Making Diana’s Butts

Written by • Oct 19th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Pretty often I get asked this question … “How did you ‘dress up’ the cameras? Any instruction? Any video?”. My answer is usually “I don’t know how to really explain how it is done but you just need patience (a lot of it!) and some concentration to get things done nicely. As for the video … ermmm … no … I don’t have one. Sorry.” So since I was doing up that Diana+ camera recently (check it out here), I decided to try shoot some photos of how I was… >> read more


The Pocket Cam

Written by • Sep 23rd, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Compact cameras like the Natura Classica ain’t exactly compact to me. That’s because they won’t fit into my pocket (although empty šŸ™ ) easily. Some months ago I picked up an used GR10 that was in minty condition for slightly less than S$200 and decided to use that as my everyday camera that I can bring around … and be my workhorse. I know there are some yummier alternatives like the GR21 (damn … I saw someone selling one lately) or the GR1v … but I need something cheap, something… >> read more


4 Seconds Etc.

Written by • Jul 31st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Plans to go the park today had to be changed because after a short baking lesson (for Fitzand at the childcare), we were all too tired to go out. So we slacked at home, had some fun playing and then I looked outside and saw what great weather it was for photography! Oh no! I didn’t wanna leave home for some photos and so decided to whip out my GRD III for some time lapse photography from my window. Well … this is the 1st time I’m trying to do… >> read more


Watching Rabbits Munch

Written by • Feb 1st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Fitzand loves animals and he was delighted when I told him that I’ll be bringing him to the Animal Resort to feed rabbits and spend some fun time there. While he usually tries not to take his afternoon nap during weekends (because he’ll wanna play all day like I do), he willingly went to bed at about 2pm … knowing that he’ll have to wake up in time for the trip to feed rabbits. After spending some time with the rabbits, he wanted to feed a horse there but was… >> read more


Limited Horrible Edition

Written by • Dec 28th, 2009 • Category: Others
My heart was beating fast when I read about this limited edition Ricoh GRDIII camera … for Stussy‘s 30th anniversary. Since Stussy has some pretty cool stuffs, I thought the limited edition cam is gonna be hell cool … but I was wrong. Dead wrong. Take a look at the camera and decide for yourselves …. hahaha …. The mode dial looks like some blue plastic mineral water bottle cap! I love the icons & the fonts at the back! I love the font they used and also those cool… >> read more


<3 Cats

Written by • Nov 26th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
I have always loved cats and will jump at any opportunity to photograph them whenever I can. Not sure if my GRD3 has some ‘cat magnet’ … I usually find that cats won’t run for their lives when I point that little black camera at them … real close. Hmm. I was just about to post these two images I took yesterday eveningĀ in my gallery instead of a blog entry … until someone showed me a thread in a local forum with an image of a notice by the… >> read more


Everyday People

Written by • Nov 1st, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Ever since I tried shooting in black & white mode using my Ricoh GRD3, I’ve decided to start two galleries to house photos I take with it. One is for photos in square (1:1) format in black & white and the other is a black & white collection of street photography shots (called ‘Everyday people’). I’ve had few photos for the square format gallery but was only able to kick-off the ‘everyday people’ set yesterday when I was on the way for breakfast with my family in Chinatown. Why did… >> read more


Square Ones

Written by • Oct 28th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
I tried my best to go through all the photos I took during the weekend in Malaysia but somehow I’m too damn tired to do so. Anyway … here are a handful that I’ve managed to upload to my gallery … All these photos (including the cat ones in the earlier entry) has just gone through very minimal post-processing. I usually brighten the images a little, adjust slightly the levels (for some only) and later resize them for web before applying a little sharpening. Pretty impressed with the black &… >> read more


My Mode III

Written by • Oct 26th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Just arrived back in Singapore after a 3 days trip to Malaysia to visit my parents. Fitzand had a great time with my folks and was very reluctant to come back but thank God he didn’t kick up a fuss in the car on the way back. Phew. I found a new love during this trip there … shooting black & white photos using my GRD3 in the 1:1 format (aka squares). I’ll be creating a new page/gallery just for this and hopefully I’ll be able to fill it up… >> read more


Deja-vu! He Is Back!

Written by • Oct 5th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Ever since I sold off my Fujifilm F200EXR, I’ve been left without a pocketable compact camera (I’ve a Lumix water/shock proof cam but that’s more for rough use (or Fitzand’s use) and the photos from it kinda sucks) and after messing around with a friend’s Ricoh GRD 3 … I used the $ from the F200EXR sale plus a couple of other cams I sold recently … to purchase a GRD 3. It’s like deja-vu when I opened up the box and held the camera in my hands. Yeah …… >> read more
