New Gallery!

Posted in
After months and months of searching for the best way to showcase my portfolio, I may have found the best free one so far. I have always wanted to integrate a professional looking gallery into my blog, but they either not classy or requires money. Disappointed, I started looking out for external sites that can host my gallery.

But I have found Wix, a website that allows you to create professional looking websites for free, and it's fully customizable! Have a look and don't forget to leave me a comment on what can be improved!

Presenting the new gallery! There are 4 main catagories: HDR, Food, Nature and Portrait

From there, click on the blog tab to return to this blog!

Optical And Digital Zoom

Posted in
More often or not, we'll see one of the main features of compact camera is the ZOOM range. Some compact cameras offer a simple 4x zoom, and some up to 12x zoom or more. Some even go to the extend of having 36x digital zoom. Without going to the showroom or a retail store to check out these cameras, how would you know the performance of them?

There are two types of zoom, Optical, and Digital zoom.

Optical Zoom

Let us focus our attention to Optical zoom. Optical zoom refers to the use of optics (lens) to zoom. The action is much like using a telescope, and there is little effect on the quality of the image when used.

Gardens By The Bay

Posted in ,
My company recently organized a trip to Gardens By The Bay. Although I've been to the gardens twice, but this is the first time I'm entering the domes!

I read and heard much about the two domes, the main theme for today'and I understand there isn't much opportunity for HDR, so I'm leaving my tripod and my gears at home and only carrying my camera and a lens that is Macro capable.

There are two domes, being the Flower Dome, and Cloud Forest. The Flower Dome is like a showcase of plants and flowers from all over the world, in their own exhibition area. The center area will feature different flowers and decorations depending on the time of the year, with various festive decorations.

The Cloud Forest on the other hand, is based on the theme of forest above the cloud layer. There are still flowers, but mostly green vegetation. And not to mention, the place is every photographer's nightmare. First of all, you will be greeted by a huge waterfall, which splashes water at your camera relentlessly  Next, they release fine water mist into the air, to create the "cloud" effect, and you won't be able to get a shot without having a fog over your images. Nevertheless, it's still fun to visit, purely for the experience.

All the pictures below are taken at the Flower Dome. Enjoy!

This is my personal favorite. It's a sculpture of an eagle from a tree or something, and I thought desaturating the colors and enhancing it's features would make a dramatic effect.
