Still thinking of how to compile my portfolio, it’s all over the place, badly needs organizing. Here’s a photo for the day. If I don’t start the ball rolling, nothing will ever get done. That’s life.
also my MOST favourite camera, the Holga. This is no NEW Holga, it’s been with me for more than 8 years.
Sometimes, All you ever NEED is a plastic lens on a black plastic box loaded with film. This IS the BEST Therapy ever! Shutter Therapy, as my blogger friend Robin calls it.
Have you ever thought of quitting photography? Yes, I do, in some ways… …
Sometimes I just feel so tired of looking at tons of digital images everywhere, especially online, and ONLY FEW can make me look at it for longer than a quick glance. For example, it makes me wonder why some bothers to shoot 10 shots of the same cat in a similar pose and post them all in flickr!?
In the current wedding industry, it’s common for couples to receive 12 sequential shots of a groom wearing his bow tie, and another 12 sequential shots of the parents covering the bride with her veil… … the list goes on and on…
I ever hired an assistant photographer who gave me just that! And editing his shots after the wedding is a real pain in the ass!
I wanna throw a question to all you guys out there… Do you seriously think photography standards have improved TODAY as compared to film days? Or to be MORE specific, do you seriously think wedding photography standards have improved in recent years due to the latest technology, the MOST intelligent cameras, the Nikon D3S, Canon 5Dmk2, etc. and etc… …???
So what if we can shoot smooth and silky jpegs at ISO25600 at 9 frames per sec?
Rush, rush, rush… I’ve been like this traveller lately. No time to eat.
The following is a series of shots from one of my personal project titled “Urban Landscape”. Shots were all done entirely on one quiet Sunday morning. I hope to publish the whole series one day. This series is meant to show our often familiar surroundings in a different light – quiet, serene, yet empty. Do feel free to drop your personal interpretation in the comments column!
