Singapore

Went to Singapore recently to have a walk there. Come to think about it, it has been almost 10 yrs since I last visited Singapore. It has changed so much. It seems like there's photographers everywhere holding a tripod, it could be because of the high people / square foot.

Anyway, need to thank my friend Lucas for his hospitality while I was there.

Below are some of the photos during my trip there

#1 - Singapore Court House

#2 - The Merlion @ Dusk

Video on Flickr

Recently flickr (Yahoo's popular photo sharing site) has announced the availability to host video which you can upload a 90sec or 150Mb clip of video. This sounds like value added service and good for consumer.

However, this doesn't seems to be the case. There are some users who protest on this http://www.flickr.com/groups/no_video and http://www.flickr.com/groups/no_video_on_flickr/ as they thinks that flickr is for photographers and should have only photo. In contrary, I see video as a collection of photos run in a sequenced manner with audio.

But then I suppose a photographer doesn't click with a videographer, do they ? :)

 

Adobe Photoshop Express (Beta)

Recently Adobe has launched a online photo gallery which allows user to upload 2GB of files. It has a friendly user interface (UI) and is pretty cool I would say.

However, some of the function missing are like

1) statistics on the picture (e.g. how many views). 
2) grab picture from flickr (currently only facebook, picasa and photobucket)
3) no forum for discussion
4) cannot leave comment on picture
5) slow

Below are some screen shoots of the website after I have created my account.

Smoke

This is the 3rd time i try to capture smoke, and I think is the most successful one.

#1 - Original before colouring with Photoshop

#2


#3 - Trying something new, a white background, turn out to be quite nice

Some of the equipments required:

  1. Camera
  2. Tripod
  3. Dark Background (in this case i use my diffuser)
  4. External Flash
  5. Jos Stick

This is how the setup look like

The thing you need to becareful is airflow, too much airflow will cause the smoke to be very weak, and too little airflow will make the smoke looks boring, not much movement.

Lowyat.Net Photo Outing

Organised the 3rd LYN outing for photoshoot. First was at Zoo, second bird park, 3rd model shooting. It was a great outing as everyone like the model (phew). Models were great, the photographers were very co-operative. Photogs were changing and trying out other gear like crazy. I tried out the 85mm f1.2L. Superb lens ! Below are some photos from the outing.

 #1 - Canon 400D + 85mm f1.2L
