Me vs Developing Tank

Written by • Nov 23rd, 2011 • Category: Others
After years of hesitation, I was finally convinced to give DIY film development of black & white film a go. All thanks to Jimmy who even helped me pick up a set of the developing kit when he bought his recently. I rushed over to ThirtySix during lunch to pick up the stuffs and he gave me a 5 minutes crash course on how to go about developing film. Ermm … a super rush training and I left the shop still in a state of confusion. All I remembered was… >> read more


LomoKino : iLike!

Written by • Nov 3rd, 2011 • Category: Toys
The clues & images Lomography recently teased us with already concluded that this is gonna be one fun awesome camera and many of us could hear our wallets cry in pain. The people at ThirtySix told me they have one pre-ordered for me (WTH?!) and yet I haven’t recovered from the damage of buying the metal La Sardinas!!! Arghhh!!! Here comes LomoKino! “Create movies of 144 frames on any 35mm analogue film. Watch your developed movies with the LomoKinoScope.” Good thing is this new toy is pretty reasonably priced and… >> read more


Sardina Metal : Unboxing

Written by • Nov 3rd, 2011 • Category: Toys
The metal editions of the La Sardina proved too tempting and I picked both of them up from ThirtySix this afternoon. From the online images I saw of them … I did have a little doubt … that it will be just some cheap flimsy ‘metal’ covered with some gold paint on? I couldn’t wait to get home to unbox them and this is one rare occasion I decided to take some photos of the unboxing process. The two metal babies waiting to be unboxed! Unlike the plastic versions, the… >> read more


Pretty In Pink & Purple

Written by • Nov 2nd, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Ran over to ThirtySix a few days before my Hong Kong trip to pick up a pack of the Lomography X Tungsten 64 film … thinking I could give it a test run during the trip. Unfortunately I was too busy entertaining my little one that I hardly had the time (and mood) to shoot much. Anyway … here are the photos from the roll of Tungsten film. As per what I read & saw online … this film is pretty cool … with a little randomness when it comes… >> read more


Unmasking Negativity : Pics

Written by • Oct 23rd, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
A week sure zapped by fast and the 1 week exhibition of my ‘Unmasking Negativity’ at ThirtySix comes to an end. For those who didn’t make it there for the exhibition, here are the photos … This one above was the first photo that made it into this set. If you haven’t already read about it earlier, these are negatives from the Impossible Project’s PZ680 film and they were bleached to obtain this blue-ish and weird negative results. It wasn’t really easy coming out with these photos as I had… >> read more


Unmasking Negativity : How?

Written by • Oct 17th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
‘Unmasking Negativity : The Truth Beneath’ is part of the ‘Impossible Lessons’ exhibition where a handful of people get to showcase and share special ‘tricks’ and experiments done using the Impossible Project films and Spectra cameras. I was pretty lost in the beginning … not knowing what to do and neither had I any experiment in mind. Doing stuffs like double exposures seemed a little too common … so I decided to take a risk (and waste lots of film) and try something different. Perhaps it was just luck that… >> read more


Unmasking Negativity!

Written by • Oct 17th, 2011 • Category: Others
Today is the first day of my ‘Unmasking Negativity : The Truth Beneath’ exhibition where my set of photos ‘cooked’ in an experimental way is exhibited at ThirtySix (at Sunshine Plaza). They were taken using the Impossible Project’s PZ680 film on a Spectra camera. “Hidden deep inside the layers of magic of the wonderful Impossible film, there are infinite possibilities to explore for the experimental ones.” A video plus some detailed information on how it is done will follow soon and they will be made available here in my blog… >> read more


The Aftermath

Written by • Oct 14th, 2011 • Category: Others
It has been on display at ThirtySix as part of the Impossible Lessons exhibition for almost a week already. This is the one camera I blogged about spending lots of time & effort on. After doing some pretty looking ‘dressed up’ cameras in the past, this one is a big change … as I was trying to beautify and then ‘uglify’ it. Sorry about the lousy photos of it … as I could only shoot with one hand that day. It was hours before I delivered the camera to ThirtySix… >> read more


Sardina Gone Metal!

Written by • Oct 13th, 2011 • Category: Others
As usual … Lomography started to ‘poison’ us with some ‘news’ about getting all excited about new ‘toys’ that they were launching. I was praying it would be just some new flash or film … but tragedy struck when I saw that they’ve launched two new metal editions of the La Sardina camera! To make things worse … they seem to look really pretty! Maybe I should tell wifey that I am gonna invest in gold and call up ThirtySix to order two of these metal guys. Hmm … The… >> read more


40 A Pop

Written by • Oct 9th, 2011 • Category: Others
Woke up this morning to receive a message from a friend saying that ‘you are quoted in the papers!’. So I picked up the Sunday Times to check out what’s going on … just to find that there is an article about the Impossible Project films. I did a short interview with them some weeks back regarding it but being shy by nature (don’t laugh!) … I refused to have photos of my fat face taken grinning with the cameras for it. The talented Noreen (aka Miun) was the ultimate… >> read more
