Few Randoms From Korea

Written by • Apr 21st, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
Eight days on a vacation in Korea … and I came back with tons of photos of Fitzand, few random shots from the streets (digital) and exposed just 2 rolls of film. Don’t ask me where did my trigger happy habit went. If you happen to see it … give me a call. Anyway … while I am struggling to go through the tons of photos of Fitzand … here are the other random shots I took … mostly street photos that I snapped one evening when the mood came.… >> read more


Test Driving The Sony RX1

Written by • Feb 25th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
So this is one hell of an expensive camera … one that has caused much excitement (and disappointment about the price) with a full frame sensor and a killer lens. I took one for a short test drive to see how awesome it is and managed to capture a handful of photos today. Street photography is fun with this almost silent camera. The 35mm lens makes it a wonderful tool for street photography. Colors are pretty awesome although I prefer using the ‘neutral’ setting instead of the ‘standard’ one. I’ll… >> read more


Drops Of Miracle

Written by • Jan 15th, 2013 • Category: Fun with film
This is a roll of Fujifilm Neopan 400 that I thought would never see the light of day. It is the 2nd test roll that I fed to the Ricoh GR21 in Japan and the roll was left in my drawer for months as I had run out of developer and just couldn’t find time to go replenish it. Last Sunday … I got a little crazy and there was this voice inside my head that told me to get the roll developed. The problem was … I still haven’t… >> read more


Checking Out :(

Written by • Apr 30th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
30 minutes til we check out and hop on the next flight back to Singapore. 🙁 The 8 days vacation just zapped past and it is back home … to reality! I’ll upload these photos taken on the streets of Taipei now … so that I won’t have a backlog of photos to go through when I get back home. My favorite shot (above) … the only one in color. I walked back to the scene 3 minutes after walking past to take this shot … right in front of… >> read more


X-Pro1 Streetshooting

Written by • Apr 26th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
After the infrared test … next comes something more fun (to me) … shooting on the streets with the X-Pro1. I have only the 35mm lens with me and thus it will be a little bit more challenging for me as I usually prefer wide angles for streetshooting. I switched the camera to the black & white (with red filter) film simulation mode and took some test shots while we were making a dash to a late lunch. Dialed -1 on the exposure compensation and fired away … The very… >> read more


On The Streets With Q

Written by • Apr 14th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Finally Saturday is here and I can give the Pentax Q a test run. Unfortunately … while I was holding it without a wrist strap (duh!), Fitzand knocked it off my hand and now the cute little Q has some scars. Thank God it still functions well. I did some low light shots to test how the little sensor performs but I’ll post them later. So far I find the low light performance is pretty good despite the tiny sensor but if you wanna know more accurate info about it… >> read more


Crossing My Path #2

Written by • Nov 9th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
One of my favorite past time when on vacations is to wander around on the streets taking random snapshots of people. Unlike some who prefers interacting with their subjects, I prefer my subjects ‘raw’. This means I wanna capture them in the most natural situations without them smiling for the camera. Most photos from this set were taken using the Fujifilm X10 as I was giving it a test run on the streets. I usually love getting close to the people and thus shooting wide most of the time. The… >> read more


Crossing My Path #1

Written by • Oct 26th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Checked into the hotel at Tsim Tsa Tsui and on the way for a late lunch … with just my X100 in hand … I shot everyone who crossed my path. I love street photography and I’m beginning to love using the electronic viewfinder (EVF) on the X100. The wide lens is a joy to use for street photography! I’ll probably fill up my SD card the next few days on the streets but I sure hope I can find the mood & inspiration to finish a roll of film… >> read more


LC-W : Streetshoot Tests

Written by • Jun 22nd, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Gave the LC-W a test run on the streets recently and as a conclusion … I think being so super wide makes things very challenging. I remember being not too far from the subjects but the photos seem to show that the people (aka subjects) are further away. Good thing is that the wideness of the lens helps capture most of the ‘action’ even though sometimes I just roughly hold the camera up and snap without looking thru the viewfinder. The lens on the LC-W is pretty darn sharp and… >> read more


Strangers

Written by • May 15th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Street photography is something I always enjoy doing and with the X100 … now I’m trying to ‘relaunch’ my love for such photography. I sure wish the X100 has the ‘snap focus’ thingie that the Ricoh GRD3 offers but then … it still ain’t too bad as a street photography cammie. 😀 No longer having the luxury to take some hours off to just roam the streets to capture photos … I can only whip out my cam and fire shots while out with my boy or on family outings.… >> read more
