On my second return to capture some of the iLight installations, I made this photograph of the Merlion. I was waiting for the Merlion to be lighted up (it starts at 7.30pm, btw) and couldn’t resist taking the opportunity to try out the LEE Big Stopper. Albeit pleased with the results, I believe that I should be able to make more outstanding pictures. I really can’t wait to explore more of Singapore and Malaysia to make more landscapes.
I took the opportunity after work to make some photographs at the iLight festival at Marina Bay. I was kinda camping at Esplanade’s Outdoor Theatre and listening to some music played by some Korean band and enjoying my light dinner just by the river. People were busy taking photos left and right and I was tempted. I took out my newly acquired tripod (albeit 2nd hand) composed the scene, pressed the shutter and waited for about 65 secs for the...
I never had the chance to go Esplanade and admire the view of the Marina Bay Sands ever since I got my dslr. Armed with my new 10-22mm, I just have to shoot this photo. Being able to take ultra wide certainly has its perks!
This particular scene was iconic right before MBS was constructed. One could easily identify this is indeed Singapore just by one glance. Nevertheless, it’s still popular simply because it’s the heart of Singapore’s financial district. Our very own Wall St, if you will. =)
Personally, I have always felt that the ticket price for Universal to be a tad too expensive. @ $70+ per ticket, I couldn’t justify myself to go in. Nevertheless, standing in front of the gate is always FREE! =)
Went to the convention on the first day with Kevin and his sister. Initially I thought it was quite good (to be honest, I hardly ever visit these kind of fairs) until Kevin said it was quite disappointing and not worth the $12 entrance fees. (yea, laugh all you want, I’ve wasted 12 bucks! =p)
Decided to make the most out of the trip, I went on to photograph most of the custom-made transformers that were showcased there. Check out the transformers goodness via my flickr or see thumbnails below.Learn More
Suggestive name, but Soapy.sg stands for School of Advanced Photography. Seems that this school was launched yesterday, I happened to attend the seminar (largely cause it was FREE!) and there were 5 award-winning (one of them was Russel Wong!) Singapore-based photographers who shared their experiences in going full time.
While I was glad to attend this free seminar and after seeing a real pro at work with studio lighting and whatnot, I knew this path is going to be interesting but a really difficult one.Learn More
I’ve never thought that I could see such a beautiful sunset just outside my home in Yishun. Shot this while I was returning home and I knew I had to hit the shutter with this. I took a couple more shots, but I know that the first one is still the best! Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.Learn More
Thanks to leafie, I just realized I have just missed out on updating my own blog! Things gotten hectic around end Oct with my solemnization, wedding in Nov, massive amount of workload in Dec (since I took a week off just before my wedding, the workload just piled up =\), Jan literally flew by with CNY just cruised along and now we’re in mid-Feb!
Come to think of it, mc and myself has yet to go on honeymoon! Sheesh, no wonder I’m feeling drained out. There’s quite a fair bit of things to update, but I guess I’ll take things slowly hereon. Kenny just got married couple days ago and it was nice meeting the rest of the gang again.
Oh yea, I just bought a new lens! It’s the 10-22mm wide angle and I loved it! Took me sometime to get used to, but I’m sure that landscape pictures will turn out better. I know, I know, it’s the photographer that matters, but sometimes you just gotta have a certain piece of equipment to achieve what you want. So with this lens, I hope that I will be able to take pretty landscapes when I go on my honeymoon. =DLearn More

I give this ring, as a token – I now marry you!Learn More
My days of being a bachelor is numbered.. in just a blink of an eye, this Sunday arrives quickly!
Nervous? yea.. I keep having the constant feeling that I might have miss out something. Even after months of preparation, listing down all that needs to be done, ticking each checklist when it’s done, I just can’t shake this feeling off.
Nevertheless, I hope it will be smooth-sailing, fun experience and pray that the weather will be clear.Learn More
