Lensbaby Velvet 56 – A Test Drive

Written by • Apr 29th, 2015 • Category: Lead Story
After (some miserable) days of waiting, I finally got to give the new Lensbaby Velvet 56 a quick test drive. As I had only a couple of hours to spare last Saturday, all I did was to run some random shots using that fun (and sexy!) lens. After an hour of testing, I have already fallen in love with it. Yes it is quite different from the previous Lensbaby offerings where you can move the sweet spot (minus the fisheye one which I will someday try purchase when I sell… >> read more


Knock! Knock!

Written by • Sep 17th, 2014 • Category: Digital stuffs
Knock! Knock! Yes I’m still around! It seems like a decade since I last updated this blog and I finally spent some time last night to iron out some technical hiccups in the photo gallery (in Fitzand’s photo gallery section). I’m glad I still remember my login and password! Since I am already logged in … I thought I might just create a post here to say a big ‘HELLO!’ to everyone out there. I’ll try harder to post more photos soon. So what’s been up? Too many to mention… >> read more


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


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


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


Lensbaby In Taiwan (Part I)

Written by • Apr 27th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
After some test run with the X-Pro1 … finally time to whip out my Lensbaby for some big fun! Paired the Composer Pro + Edge 80 optic with my K-01 … I sort of went trigger happy (as usual) and here are 40 of the photos … I really don’t know how to explain this … but each and every time I touch the Lensbaby … I simply go crazy! It is always big fun using the Lensbaby (any version of it) and I’ve never got bored using them. A… >> read more


Edge 80 Rocks!

Written by • Mar 25th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Cheesy title … I know. đŸ˜€ 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
