Smelly & Sexy

Written by • Jun 7th, 2011 • Category: Toys
I am guilty of probably owning more bags than my wife and after a long search for a leather bag that is old, still in good condition, of the right size, smelling bad and doesn’t look too ‘wow’ … my prayers were answered when the famous Mijonju (you must be shot if you love analogue/toy cameras and do not know him already but anyway … he’s the famous young man who gives us The Mijonju Show) put this old leather bag (one that he bought used too) up for sale.… >> read more


Game Over (For Now)

Written by • Feb 9th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
A week has passed without work. A week of leave went up in ashes. The Lunar New Year celebration is over (at least for me … or did I even celebrate at all?). Tomorrow will be the first day I get my butt back to work. For once … I’m taking a photo that reflects exactly how I feel now … No Angry Bird was harmed in the making of this photo. Oven thoroughly cleaned too. This was taken using the Lensbaby Composer about an hour ago. I just collected… >> read more


His Room

Written by • Dec 12th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
I woke up from a short nap just now and since Fitzand was still in dreamland … I suddenly had the idea of capturing some photos of stuffs in his room. He’s almost 4 now and I’m sure it won’t be too long before all the stuffs (ie. toys & stickers) etc are replaced with some other toys for older kids (don’t scare me by saying ‘gadgets & cameras’) and the Mickey & friends posters might be replaced with some rock star posters (boybands not really welcomed :P). Bikini babes?… >> read more


Happy Birthday, Fitzand

Written by • Jan 5th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
How time flies! Fitzand has just turned 3 years old today and I took leave to spend the day with him … starting the day with a short birthday party at the childcare he attends. We ordered a Thomas & Friends cake (he personally picked the cake!) and he was super happy to see it yesterday evening when we collected it. This is the first time he’s celebrating his birthday with his friends at the childcare (he hasn’t joined the childcare during his last birthday) and he was super duper… >> read more


LB Soft Focus Optic : Analogue Test

Written by • Jan 3rd, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
After some initial test with my DSLR, I decided to try out the Lensbaby Soft Focus Optic (SFO) on my cheap old film SLR. I know that the Lensbaby lenses can work very well on that SLR but I was a little worried about the metering when using the SFO. This is because of the many weird ‘holes’ (ie. apertures) on the aperture disc. I found my SLR already loaded with a roll of Reala 100 film and had a few shots already taken … and took me a while… >> read more


Toys R Them!

Written by • Dec 31st, 2009 • Category: Others
Since I can’t sleep and waiting to try shoot the New Year eve fireworks at midnight … I thought I’ll just add the (really) last entry for the year. I love doing online shopping and happened to come across this local web store that specializes in toys (for kids … not the usual ‘toys’ (aka cameras) I buy for myself) called Lamkins. I contacted them not too long ago … looking for a Thomas & Friends character toy because I couldn’t find it in a couple of Toys R Us… >> read more


New Lensbaby Fun!

Written by • Oct 22nd, 2009 • Category: Others
From those cool people who brought us some special fun into the world of photography … Lensbaby … has just launched two new products to their already fun line of lenses and accessories … the Fisheye Optic and also the Soft Focus optic. The Fisheye optic works with the Composer but will need a special adapter to work well with the Muse. While the website didn’t mention anything about the Control Freak, I assume it is not compatible. Do correct me if I’m wrong. For those big fans of fisheye… >> read more
