Victorian Marie Antoinette Theme

'Scrap-booked' inspiration pictures for a theme... could be for my next layout/shooting ideas/etc. Looking for something feminine, chic, vintage yet updated. 



"The light of love, the purity of grace, The mind, the Music breathing from her face"

Lovelies =)


"Those things that nature denied to human sight, she revealed to the eyes of the soul"

Dragonflies... As a child I was always in awe with the glistening of their wings as they flew by and their fragility- beauty within reach which could easily be harmed without self restraint.

Kiki & Friends (Canon Digital EOS 500D)

Picture heavy post when you click "read more"...

Canon Digital EOS 500D

Used the 'Sports' mode for some of the pics as we all know cats can't stay still. So some of them turned out blurry when manual is used.

The cats eating are strays who visit a few times a day for food. The black one 'Kiki' is mine... well sorta...

How do I say this...

I'm in love with my Canon.

Took some shots for Poupee and liked how the pics turn out =)

Night Cycling Photos

Photos taken by Ben and Jerome who brought along their DSLRs. 

Went night cycling from 9.30 pm to 5 am. 

A rough total of about 7 hours plus: 

Started from East Coast Park, riding through Marine Parade for shaved ice dessert at Koi, Bugis (Haji Lane), prata place near Vivo for supper, Dempsey Hill, Orchard, Buat Quay and back to East Coast Park.

I lost 1 kg after waking up the next day =) and my butt is still sore.

Anyway, I just bought a new Canon EOS 500D digital camera. 

One of the best cams in the market right now from the reviews, superb specs and personal experience. 

Will post up awesome pics soon.


The Megapixels Race

"....you should not be fooled by the "more megapixels is better" mantra"- extracted from here

This advice came in just in time!

I was seriously considering to purchase a Samsung Pixon in Pink because it has an 8 megapixel camera... and because it's pink

Researched more on this phone about whether it takes good pictures and found out that it's good only for Macro shots, and sucks at taking landscape pics... Furthermore, being kiasu, I also thought of waiting for the next Samsung Pixon 12- 12 megapixels camera phone which will probably be available here in August.

I realised this: it doesn't mean that the higher the megapixels of the camera is, the nicer the photos will turn out :s Noise will still be a problem  if the right settings are not used.

I'm a dummy when it comes to photography and photog terms such as ISO speed, Aperture, Image sensor size, etc, but it's something I'm keen on learning about. Thus my exploration leads me to the tutorials on Photoxels.com (I've linked some of their articles to the terms). 

It even got me to explore the settings of my current Kodak 6.1 megapixels cam even further and made some trial shots using different settings.

Taken with ISO 800, lowered the image size to 1.8MP.
Notice there are more details and noise in the shadow area at the top rows of the keyboard.

Taken at ISO 80, 6MP image size.
Less noise and darker shadows.

Changed the light balance setting to fluorescent and it gives a bluish tint and cooler temperature.

The camera also has settings of Burst, Exposure Metering, AF Control (Still) and Focus Zone- all I have never bothered to explore previously. I simply depended on the Auto mode all the time and wondered why my pictures suck and needed lotsa photoshopping =x

Just a lil more finger work and buttons do make a lot of difference.
