    • Hey ladies, figured that some of you photo craze girls might want to check out this competition by Samsung. It's pretty neat if you ask me, loving the concept. I might just take part myself if I had the skills! Still need to train up on that.

      Give it a shot! (No pun intended) Here: Samsung Cameras Singapore - Breathe Light Into The Night | Facebook

          Last glimpse of the sun befor it set at Nagarkot, Nepal.


          The next morning's sunrise. The sun was just popping out. Left is the Himalayan range slowly getting hit by the sunray.


          Children of Chitwan, Nepal.



          Was sitting by the river bank, waiting for the sun to take it's rest. It was so peaceful and a quiet moment.
          I will say that this is really a nice photo. This is more of a photo essay. But I really felt sad to see children like this. The photo is art and behind it is a drama.

                • Some of the more useful stuff I've learnt from the flash books:

                  1) Try to minimize using flash head-on if you can help it
                  2) If using fill flash in bright daylight, you will require high speed sync as your shutter speeds will go faster than 1/250sec.
                  3) High speed sync flash may not be powerful enough on its on, so you...
                  4) ... set +2EV or higher on the flash

                  5) If using flash wirelessly, zoom the flash to 105mm (for Canon flashes like the 580EX II) instead of 24mm and having the flash splash all over the place.

                  Sample photo of wireless flash (fired from his right, just out of the frame), zoomed to 105mm so that it concentrates mostly on his face and -1EV as I didn't want to blow out his skin.




                  No flash modifiers were used for this photo as I wanted the harsh(er) non-diffused flash to accentuate the debris on his skin and clothes and also set the mood.

                    • Welcome and thank you too, LovelyJemChee! If you are looking to get plugins for Photoshop, Lightroom or Aperture, I would highly recommend the Nik Software bundle. Go for the education/student bundle as it costs SGD350 instead of SGD700. I purchased mine at Riceball in Funan Centre.

                      The photo above was also edited using Nik Software.

                            • Hi magicdust! The lady was sitting at the steps of School of The Arts (SOTA), and I shot this from the 6th floor of Cathay building with a 300mm lens.

                                Sorry to be out of action for so long. Has been extremely busy since the start of the year.
