Making the Best of the Situation

Sometimes, when you arrive at a location to shoot something, you find that the light isn’t right, or some other things can go wrong. For example, when I joined a city tour of Sydney when I was there years ago, I arrived at the lookout point near the Mrs Macquarie’s Chair with the light in […]

Featured in Joby’s Blog!

What a pleasant surprise when I saw @jobyinc‘s status update on Twitter that one of my pics from a recent trip have been featured in their latest blog post. I’ve always found the GorillaPod Original to be extremely useful when paired with my Panasonic Lumix LX3. It often lets me take pictures which are otherwise […]

Singapore Flyer

This is actually an old shot. Was at the Singapore Flyer (currently the world’s tallest observation wheel) to take a ride, but due to the rain earlier, the lighting was drab and uninteresting. That is until I saw this from inside my capsule.

It’s Not the Camera

We all have heard of the oft-mentioned “It’s not the camera, it’s the photographer”. Here’s Lee Morris from Fstoppers.com doing an entire shot using just an iPhone 3GS mounted on a tripod.

Early Morning Shoot at Merlion Park

Joined Kit and several other ClubSNAP members this morning. As I found out from an earlier trip, the waters are stiller in the early hours, resulting in near-perfect reflections. This is shot at about 6:30am, just before the Merlion water jet is turned on. Here’s a slightly tigher crop. As the day breaks, I decided […]

Early Morning Shoot at the Esplanade

This is my first early morning shoot with Kit and some ClubSNAP members. I am not much of an early morning person, but seeing the photos taken by Kit and the rest inspired and motivated me to wake up early to join them. One thing about early morning shoots which I learnt from this trip […]

Inspired by DNA, it’s made up of 2 spiraling helixes made of stainless steel tubes which, if laid end to end, will measure 2,250 meters long, and […]
