Singapore Garden Festival

This's a really really late post and I'm just catching up with shoots I did long ago and didnt post up earlier. These are some photographs i took at the Singapore Garden Festival last year. I think it was in July, or August. I'm sorry, though, I'm not sure about the names of many of the flowers. If you want to know any, please do leave the number of the photo in the comment and I'll try to find out the name of the flower :)

Other than that, I hope you REALLY enjoy this a lot! It's been a long time coming, and it's been collecting dust in my hard drive (Sorry!). I hope you find the wait worth it ;)

Black and whites from ages back.

Hello again, I realise it's seriously been AGES since i last posted, but yeah well i'm back again. So this's some honestly all-play shots just to lay the ground for the first post i have in months, and it all started when i got an Olympus XA2 film camera. It's really beautiful, but sadly, it broke on me so i don't have any more and these shots are all i have to show for the brief time i had with that camera. This post is somewhat of a 'memorial' for my camera, if you will :) The camera went all the way to places like Indonesia with me during its life. Toy Cameras really are a joy to play with, so I hope you enjoy these smiley photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. (Don't blame me for grainyness, i had no control over this Point and Shoot Camera D:) Enjoy!

Singapore Arts Fest 2008

 Okay, sorry this's super super late, and it's been a long time since the actual event, which happened end May this year. Been really busy with other things, and posting other shoots as well. Now I've got some time, so I'll be posting more regularly (hopefully).

This was the opening act for the 2008 Singapore Arts Festival. It was at boat quay, and they were performing with their props on the water. The show was a spectacle to behold, and the photos don't really do them much justice, but ah well. Enjoy!

The Art of Photography

 So what's wrong with Film, I ask?

1) Film takes too long to process
2) Film takes too long to print
3) Film's too troublesome to change from roll to roll
4) There are only 36 exposures in a roll
5) Film's so much more expensive in the long run
6) Film's so inaccurate and it's just a shot in the dark

Very true. But what if film photography was the true shot into becoming a great photographer? I don't pretend I use film all the time; I'm a digital photographer for most of the time. And I'm not saying that film photographers are the only ones who will become great photographers; Quite the contrary.

In today's society, the ones who make it the most are the digital photographers who get their works out a lot faster and can do so much more with their shots. So how can film make you a better photographer?

With digital photography there hailed an era of careless shutterbugs who fire off their shots with no consideration whatsoever as to the photos they were taking with the simple mentality of 'If this photo's bad, I can take it again'.

This is good. Having started from the bottom, I agree with this and know how much money it can save you. Sure as hell, this is the most practical way.

But what about shots that will never be seen again? Do compositions of the photo even matter at all?

I believe film photography trains the photographer in the long run to quickly take the best photo with the given light conditions as well as movement. When you are forced to think 'This might be the only shot i will get. I better take it well', then perhaps everyone's photography will improve a little.

I have seen many photographers who go around, shooting a whole 20 GB worth of cards a day in JPEGs. That is no mean feat. I agree that it is good that you shoot and keep shooting, so as to document as much as you can. However, is this a case of the person shooting 50-100 of the same photo and saying 'Don't worry, I have a hundred photos in my card, at least one of them will turn out fine'?

Hmmm.

Travis

Finally! We have come to Travis. Hope you guys enjoy this set as much as I enjoyed them. They truly were the best band to play at Singfest Day1. Their band dynamics, and their set was pure pleasure to watch, so much so that halfway through i decided to give up on photography and concentrate on enjoying their music. Many songs such as 'Closer', 'Sing' and 'Why does it always rain on me' were sung, and they had an extra song due to popular demand, that was 'Flowers in the window'

Enjoy! :)

Lostprophets

Hello everyone, know you've all been waiting a long time, but here it is! Lostprophets! (SHINOBI AND DRAGON NINJA!)  Singfest, once again. Their set was pretty action-packed, i would have to say. Ian was rather electrifying and I really loved his trick where he swung his mic around and then caught it in the end. pretty damn sweet. (photo at the end!) haha.

anyway, i shan't tarry any longer. click on the cut! I'm sure you'll enjoy the set :) (Nigel, this's for you too mate!)

Deejay

This poor soul was up at the 2nd stage at Singfest while everyone was down at the other stage waiting for Travis to come on. Poor guy was playing and spinning music and no one was in front of the stage. He was spinning and all that, being all cool with nice lights and all, and having no audience. How sad is that man? Anyhow, decided to go listen to him, and snapped some photos.

Lostprophets and Travis coming up soon!

Melee

So here's part 2 of the Singfest Day 1 posts. Melee! Their set was one of the best in the day, packed with energy and they were great showmen and their performance left me wow-ed even though i'd never really heard of them before. Anyway, here it goes! Enjoy!

Beijing Day 10

Beijing Day 10. Some of you might realise that Day 9 is missing. Sorry about that, I spent the whole of day 9 playing so hard that i forgot to take any photos. -hits self on head. Anyhow, day 10 is up. So enjoy day 10 and try not to think of the fact that I was happy-go-lucky enough to forget to shoot photos on one day.

Went shooting in the early morning on Day 10. Got up, walked to the train station and went to ZhongYi Hutong. Nice place. Didn't shoot a lot, because there was a meeting time of about 10am at the hotel to check in luggage. Nevertheless, enjoy all that's been shot!

Beijing Day 8

Beijing Day 8 was mostly spent witnessing the MOU signing, as well as the exploration and checking out of Beijing Film Academy. Their facilities and past students' work is rather good. Will not include photos of the MOU signing since it will be rather pointless here, as it was more for print journ students than anything. We did visit a club at night, though. Will post some photos of those up. Enjoy!

Beijing Day 7

Day 7 was spent wandering around, mostly. Walked around and explored, taking photos of random things that caught my eye and amused me. Found 'The Place' (Yes, that's the name of that place..) - with the largest overhead LCD screen in the world. Pretty. Enjoy!

Beijing Day 6

Day spent with the Opera people. More time to forge new bonds, more time to find out more about everyone. Opera in China; Beijing Opera. Most of the day was spent photographing, as well as watching this most exquisite art form at its' best - in Beijing. We saw two teams doing two separate operas in the same day, and managed to watch both of them rehearse. Following that, we went to 'Lao She Cha Guan' to watch Classic Beijing Opera in the night. Enjoy!

Beijing Day 5

Day 5 of Beijing. Overnight shooting. Ghost street, creepy houses, dark back alleys. All the way to the day.

Walking around in the day, visiting a renown kite shop at night and visiting 'Hou Hai' which is a popular bar and pub area in Beijing. Enjoy!

Beijing Day 4

Beijing Day 4 spent mostly in an amusement park in Beijing. Some people dub it as the 'fake disneyland' of China. Some of the mascots even look like Mickey Mouse and what not. Rather fun, you pay 3 Singapore Dollars to get in then you have to pay for the other rides, so it's not the most value for money thing, but ah well. Everywhere you look, you see families and families and families. Children having fun, eating candy, overall a rather fun and happy place.

Enjoy the photos!

Beijing Day 3

Spent most of the day walking around the Hutongs. Those are like communal areas, where there are a lot of houses that are built. Many of the houses are at least a hundred years old, but in preparation for the Beijing Olympics, many of the tenants in the houses are being forced to moved out,and their family houses which have been in their family for generations torn down. The photos are mostly of the sights in the area, some of the houses, architecture, and the work that is going on.

Enjoy, because soon these might not be visible in Beijing anymore.

Beijing Day 2

Beijing Day 2 was pretty much the same as Day 1. Spent time going around, looking at the touristy attractions that pretty much everyone who goes to Beijing looks for. As usual, really really crowded in the places. Enjoy.

Beijing Day 1

Day 1 of Beijing was spent mostly going around, visiting the places that all normal tourists would go to. Fun eh. Not really. Hated the crowds and the people that got in the way of my photos. Nevertheless, enjoy.
