8 Days Of Fun

Written by • May 2nd, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
A short summary of our Taiwan trip last week. We found out about Leofoo Resort during our previous Taiwan trip a couple of years back and we knew that will be definitely a place to bring Fitzand to for a short trip. We got a room facing the area where the animals were and this is definitely a trip that Fitzand loves lots. He was complaining a lot when we left the resort for Taipei after 4 days because he wanted to stay longer. The awesome thing about this resort… >> 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


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


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


Rocketing In Taiwan : 2

Written by • Nov 28th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
The last roll from the Sprocket Rocket for the trip. As the weather/lighting was pretty crazy/bad, loading a roll of Lomo Xpro 200 slides on the Rocket was a little risky. Fortunately we were in Taichung during that time and the sun was (a little bit) more ‘helpful’. Still there were some ‘forced doubles’ due to bad lighting. Glad most of the shots turned out fine. 😀 I kinda like the doubles in this roll! Fitzand posing with his new soft toy and train … After finish scanning this roll… >> read more


Featuring Fat Finger

Written by • Nov 25th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Apart from the risky (but fun) first attempts at using the Sprocket Rocket during my Taiwan trip, I threw in this old Konica AA35 that has been sitting in my cabinet for a long time … with a roll of film that I couldn’t remember loaded … into my backpack. The film counter was pointing at ‘1’ and at that point of time … I realised that this is one of the camera that I’ve never got to start using (or test). Gosh! I sure hope it was working! Being… >> read more


Taiwan 2010 : The Video

Written by • Nov 24th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Stop right here if you don’t wanna waste 10 minutes of your time watching some random video clips (mostly of Fitzand) that I randomly shot during last week’s Taiwan trip. 😀 The little one loves watching himself in videos … so I spent most of the time shooting video instead of photos this time. I ain’t got too much patience (nor time) to edit videos … so I just pieced them together in maybe an hour last night.… >> read more


Rocketing In Taiwan : 1

The Lomography’s latest ‘toy’ … the Sprocket Rocket wasn’t one of the product that made me super excited nor did I rush to grab one. Our friendly (not very pocket-friendly though) people from ThirtySix buzzed me and told me that they reserved one for me (!!!) and stocks were in … the week before I flew off to Taiwan for my vacation. So I dropped by the shop, picked up the Sprocket Rocket (darn long name and I’ll just call it Rocket from now on) and decided to bring it… >> read more


Taipei : The Streets

Written by • Nov 21st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
About 12 hours  from now and I’ll be (reluctantly) leaving this place. A little too tired to type much now but following the ‘tradition’ of my earlier streetshooting set in Tokyo (here, here, here & here) … I will end this short vacation with some street photos taken with the E-P1 in the ‘grainy black & white’ mode … and just resized for web. I always love the thrill of street shooting. No … not with a long lens hiding from far but to go real close to the ‘action’… >> read more
