I think I spend most of my time during the holiday trying to hone my rusty photography skills. Taking photos of mostly anything I feel like taking. This includes my lunches during holidays. No, I'm not that bored but I just don't have anything else that is more....interesting to capture such as models ? hahaha..I have craved to do a portrait photo shoot, still craving for more.

Anyway, here are some of my shots of my lunch.

Canon in da Dark

Alright so this is my second post for this month ! Around of applause to myself for being able to update this blog after such a long long time.

I was playing with some of my camera's function today until it hit me that "hey, let's try something". So, I took my camera bag and set up the shoot studio. Actually, it far small than mini since the only light source I used was a torchlight.

The tittle above said it all. I took pictures of my miniature Canon family in the dark, depending solely on the torchlight acting as a light source. I gotta admit that I had a hard time trying to focus on the object. Blame the darkness. Thank goodness I have my little baby 50mm f1.8, which has allowed me to shoot in a low F number to maximize the light. As I was facing hindrance to focus on to my subject, I have tried some shot using manual mode in state of auto mode.

I thought of taking more and more shots trying to change the direction of light source. Unfortunately, my camera's battery betrayed me in the end by dying half way. It's now in the hospital receiving its treatment. *sigh*

Anyway, here some of the shots below. Feel free to give any comment.

Wesak Day 2010

Time to clean up the cobwebs. It's my semester break again. Guess that explains why I'm updating the blog now. I will try to update as regular as possible whenever I have the chance.

Wesak Day took place in the month of May. For those who don't know what is Wesak Day all about, here's a something for you guys. Wesak Day is to mark the birth, Enlightenment and passing away of Gautama Buddha.

As usual, I went to temple and volunteer to help at the stall. This year, my temple were glad to receive a visit from the Prime Minister of Malaysia and his wife, together with other ministers. Besides that, we also received a pleasant visit from Gordon Ramsay. For those who watched Hell's Kitchen, you guys know who I'm referring to.

I guess I'll let the pictures below to do the rest of the talking.

Busy street. Sorry for this blur image, I didn't mount my camera onto a tripod and I was shooting in a slow shutter speed.
