People's antics

View all 5 photos...
Here's some candid shots on people and their antics. All the people in the photos are my friends. Actually I've longed to get shots of babies.. But I don't know where to find one. I had enough of kids. I wanna capture babies as I've never done so. Nevertheless, here's some of my snaps..

'It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary.' - David Bailey

The Eye

This is my buddy's eye.. I think she has got a real beautiful hazel eye.. I instantly knew her eye would make a good subject so I took out my mascara and glittering eye shadow to enhance her eye. But what's more interesting is that you can see the reflection of the sky in her eye. The sky that day was amazingly gorgeous.

Today is my photography module. The theme for today is 'Urban Landscape'. Me and my 4 other team mates were geared up with our camera kit and headed to Woodlands Checkpoint, simply not to enter Malaysia but to snap pictures of landmarks surrounding the area. But it's a pity there ain't many cool stuffs we could capture. So we merely go round the area looking for interesting to shoot. Joslyn and I managed to get some great shots of the new and old Woodlands Checkpoint from a distance. We even managed to get some skyscrappers of JB using zoom lens and by going up to the 25th floor of the tallest building in Woodlands. I think today I've not captured too many shots due to time constraint as by 2 plus, we have to present our photos. Here are some interesting shots that I managed to come up with.

I couldn't decide between the coloured and the achromatic one. It came suddenly and started being friendly with me and my mates. This is actually a pic of a cute stray cat leaning on my leg and eventually it settle down and sat right where it was in the picture.

This was shot using the 100-300mm zoom lens. I think the portrait of P.Ramlee and folks is very eye catching. It was taken outside the barber. Didn't wanna go in to seek attention so capturing the subject from outside's a better idea. This barber shop is rather old school too. Like those of the 70s era. Very nostalgic.

For this, I think it is my best shot for today. I like the fact that the old checkpoint overlooks the new one. It's like a contrast between modernisation and the past creation. It was edited the way I did in my previous entry.

I don't like this picture. It's because I find it kinda messy and there's no focus in it. But I post this up to show the view of JB from Singapore's high rise apartment. I think it looks better off camera. Used the zoom lens for this too at 145mm focal length.

Lastly, this wasn't edited at all. These are my team members.. (from front to back) Izyan, Joslyn, Sabby and Adila. We call ourselves the 'Mak Cik Team' (I didn't really like the name anyway ) I think it was a fun outing even though I was whining about the weather at times.

This particular photo here is a combination on two pictures. I wasn't feeling too well today and I was so dead bored. So I looked through my collections of pictures in my hard disk and did some experiments. I do have new pictures, as new as yesterday. But someone told me that my photo collections seems rather boring lately. Probably because I am so into portraits and people lately as my photography lessons these past weeks was very much on people-related. But anyway, these photos below were taken in Tioman Island. I edited them in everyone's(if not majority) trusty software, Photoshop CS 2. Did some layer masking on the sky and added some cloning around it. Did a massive amount of editings and here is the outcome.

These shots were taken 2 weeks ago during my photography lesson. The theme for that day was 'Retro' so me and my mates were kinda geared up for the photoshoot. It's one of my best photography days among the past weeks. I do have had tremendous fun. Many thanks to my 2 models Andrea and Adila..
