More Lensbaby Fun In Japan

Written by • Nov 28th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Although I thought did not fire too many shots with the Lensbaby during this recent trip to Japan, I found quite a handful of images in my SD card. Maybe I was tripping the shutter in a daze! Here are a few more of them. This first one (below) was taken early one morning when I woke up (a little too) early at 7am. As I usually sleep very late … I should be still in bed … warm and comfy … but instead I chose to jump out of… >> read more


Bending In Japan 2012 (Part 1)

Written by • Nov 12th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Finally I’ve got internet connection (if I excluded the one I got at the pub last night)! Was putting up at a friend’s place in Yokohama and she don’t recall her Wifi password … and thus I was ‘disabled’ for a couple of days. Now that we’ve checked in at Prince Grand Resort, Hakone … a lovely hotel that we’ll be just stay for one night … I’m gonna make good use of the internet access and update my blog. You might notice some layout change in my blog. I… >> read more


Minus The Bending

Written by • Aug 11th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Missing my Lensbaby stuffs … so I took the Scout and Sweet 35 out for a spin after dinner today. Didn’t have much time to shoot … so here are just a few to cure my itchy fingers. I initially wanted to use a film SLR (to pair with a Lensbaby) but knowing that I’ll definitely take a month or more to finish that roll … I decided to use my Pentax K-01 instead. Trying to get used to manual focusing with the Lensbaby using the LCD (the K-01 doesn’t… >> read more


Shiny And Bright No More

Written by • May 12th, 2012 • Category: Others
I was using my Lensbaby Composer Pro recently during my vacation in Taiwan and I realized that some of those photos I took in bright sunlight turned out very ‘foggy’. Almost the entire photo had a washed out look … like light leak! Then I remembered having this problem too … some time ago but ignored it. So I emailed those friendly people in Lensbaby and they told me that it is due to the reflective surface on the lens mount. Earlier batches of the lenses had that version of… >> read more


Pinhole Day 2012

Written by • Apr 29th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
My last (full) day here in Taipei (well … tomorrow we’ll be flying back at 4pm) and it is World Pinhole Day … and I came prepared with the Lensbaby pinhole for some pinhole action. As expected, I can’t spend too much time shooting pinhole and let my family wait … so here are some shots I took today … I did have my Diana F+ with me but didn’t use it for shooting pinhole as it will take looooooooong exposures and I don’t have much time to spare. Luckily… >> read more


Edge 80 Rocks!

Written by • Mar 25th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Cheesy title … I know. 😀 Here’s a quick entry and some random photos I took with the Lensbaby Edge 80 today when taking a rest entertaining Fitzand. He’s been very proud of his new pair of shades I bought him yesterday and wanted me to take some photos of him with it on. He grabbed his guitar and started to rock & roll … We left the shades in his bag and guess what … this morning when I picked him up after his music class … he proudly… >> read more


Edge 80 On The Street

Written by • Feb 26th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Some random test shots with the Lensbaby Edge 80 optic yesterday. Didn’t have much time to shoot though. I’m beginning to get used to focusing with this optic although shooting moving subjects is sure a big challenge. Luckily focus was okay when he suddenly gave me the thumbs-up! Okay … so few of these (above) are still subjects but these below are the more challenging ones … That’s all for now. Gotta go get a shower and run off to my clients place. Gotta do migration and upgrades for several… >> read more


Edge 80 Goes Out To Play

Written by • Feb 22nd, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Got an invitation to attend Fujifilm Singapore’s launch of the X-Pro1 camera today but I sneaked outta it when everyone were busy giving a go at the cameras. There were pretty models and cool macro stuffs for us to try the X-Pro1 on but after sneaking out to reply some urgent messages … I decided to get myself a few pints of cold beer and … whip out my DSLR & Lensbaby … with the Edge 80 optic. Yeah … I’ve got serious attitude problem. 😛 Wondering what I feel… >> read more


Lensbaby Edge 80

Written by • Feb 21st, 2012 • Category: Toys
Thanks to those fun people from Lensbaby, a copy of the Edge 80 arrived at my office today. Unfortunately it was close to midnight by the time I had time for myself (and my cameras), so giving this cool lens a proper test run is not quite possible (old folks need sleep too!). Anyway … here are some photos I took of the lens coupled with my K5 … The Edge 80 Optic is an 80mm f/2.8 flat field of focus optic with a 12-blade adjustable aperture and is perfect… >> read more


Composer gone Pro!

Written by • Aug 27th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Yeah … my Lensbaby Composer has gone pro. Received the Pro version of the Composer from Lensbaby yesterday and it answered all my questions before about how different can it be from the normal version. After drawing a Hello Kitty leaving a big ‘X’ on the polling slip for the Presidential Election this morning, we went out for a great breakfast with some friends and then spent some time doing some shopping … and of course for me … some shooting! This set of candid photos above is my favourite… >> read more
