Me and the geng….

July 24, 2008

Long time dint update my blog…decided to do some special entry this time. So , i ‘ll talk bout my “comrade”.

you know, there’s few time in your life that true friend will stop by your side and “teman” you do some crazy stuff. no..not that kind of friend that go yam char once a while, is the friend that willing to step out for u anytime and those will fight with you and not running away. i consider my self lucky cos in my 25 years i found few of them.

i dun have picture of them all, i only got recent 1( cos i just got my camera mah!!). back in the early days, my best pal was erle stanley, still is just diff path now, then my UNI life was the 8 “tai ling ngong”. ( reeve, ronnie, harvey, alex, eric, maxwell, peter) .did so many stuff with them but now everyone going somewhere as work at the different place.

Likas park…

July 9, 2008

okay, i’m gaining on weight so i decided to go jogging with rachael at likas park. The park was nice as we reach there around 5 pm and started to jog for 2 rounds. After finish jog, we decided to take few picture of the lake and people feeding fish. too bad, the water too muddy and cant see the fish.

#1 Tree, the park was well kept. a nice place to do photo shoot.

there are some flower beside the lake. My macro photo still very bad i know >.<

#3 The last and the star of the day will be the lake it self.

Something New and Different…

June 30, 2008

Oh yeah, Finally manage to find some free time go take picture. ok…for those who know me, i’ll have to admit, i usually got free time, just plain lazy okay~ . So i manage to get my lazy ass up and decided to go sailing, which i have not been doing for some time. ever since my windsurf sail tore, i more lazy to go . haha…but then i don’t wan to waste such a wonderful day.

So me and rach sail to sandbank( just near tg aru beach) , decided to take my boat out, but blocked by other, so i just borrow my sister’s boat.

well, i wanted to use the artistic side of mine ^^ so, i decided to try something new and different. The outcome as below

#1

Title = thinking…

#2

]

sail boat, the transport we use to get here.

#3

Title = You Have stolen my heart… i actually listening to ” Dashboard Confensional = you have stolen my heart “.

#4

KK city view. from the other side ..

#5

Would love to take more , but my camera limited my idea. there were seagull, baby seagull, so damn cute. but i cant zoom in enough to capture the cuteness.

But…1 picture beat them all….when anson and raphael’s boat drifted away..they had to swim to get it back..

“SWIN BABE SWIM!!!! Oh yeah…move THAT ARM!! higher!!”

Meaning behind every picture…

June 16, 2008

Had a change to be alone last week end, was scouting the place for my 1st outdoor model shoot. Then this idea came to me. We always hear bout how a picture mean a thousand word. “Why don’t i create a story using photos” so, i got this idea of walking along the beach and park to find good pictures. A bit silly idea as i dint bring water along.

the sun was so hot…yet, a very good day.

the end of the picture is the place i wanted to go, i do really wish i have a bicycle with me.

this is how i feel…dry and hot.

OK..that the end of the story haha. cos i don’t know what to write anymore. some abstract photo i took before i end my place hunting task for the day.

My 1st HDR!!

June 14, 2008

my very 1st attempt on HDR.( high dynamic range). taken outside my house. yeah..i know the pole and the line distract but this is the only picture i got and i cant stand a moment longer to try HDR.

picture above is my very 1st attempt to make a HDR picture. still getting use to the software and the quality after i finish edit the picture, Just wanted to put this up as future reference see how much i improve.

Any C&C are welcome.

Model Indoor Portrait.

June 12, 2008

oh yea…finally persuaded my girl friend to pose for me. never try indoor portrait. taken at her room. with room light and couple of small bright light to play with the lighting.

i love this shot…so natural and the composition just the way i like it. it have all the bright and dark area. model need to cover 3/4 of the photo? break the rules!

a close up, i know the head gone a bit. But i just the pose and the shadow on the right kinda fill the image so won’t look so empty. my thought tho.

trying to make blur background effect, but doesn’t seem nice if indoor, will try outdoor with the same effect again. maybe with few structure or tree behind and blur it out will give better effect.

Finally ! A version with colour, i mean real colour. still very much new in taking portrait photo, any suggestion are welcome.
