The past week I have re-kindled my love for photography a little bit. Ever since I started dusting off my X-Pro 3 from the dry box and giving it a spin to see if it still works, it reminded me of why I like taking photos. It also cemented the fact that my love for... Continue Reading →
Cycling with former colleagues
In my previous blog entry, I mentioned my Fujifilm X-Pro 3 and how I brought it out for a test run after a long hiatus. I was digging through some of my older photos that I took and realised a set of photos that I didn't get to showcase. It was during a cycling outing... Continue Reading →
Taking my X-Pro 3 for a test run after a long hiatus.
One of the most under-utilised devices I have laying around in my room at this moment is the Fujifilm X-Pro 3 camera. I bought the beautiful, titanium encased camera back in 2019 when it was just launched. I was immediately attracted to the design and build quality of the camera that I was willing to...

Reminder on just how amazing iPhone cameras are.
So a couple of weeks ago I went to World Farm, somewhere in Yishun, because my mum wanted to buy some indoor plants for the house. As I took photos of the flowers, and the plants, I forgot how amazing the iPhone 11 Pro Max's cameras are. To have such an amazing camera for general... Continue Reading →
My Fujifilm X-Pro 3, a lost opportunity
At the end of 2019, I made a huge investment in upgrading my camera gear. I bought the brand new Fujifilm X-Pro 3. I was smitten by how it hides the LCD display, forcing you to focus more on taking photos than looking at them after taking your shots. It essentially changes the way you... Continue Reading →
Things I miss a lot during the Circuit Breaker
With Singapore approaching the tail end of the Circuit Breaker, (amounting to almost two months of lockdown) and economic activity in Singapore gradually thawing, life will never be the same as before. Social distancing and the wearing of face masks in public will be the new normal moving forward, whether you are in a mall,... Continue Reading →
Singapore Airshow 2020
The Singapore Airshow 2020 was the first such airshow that I ever had the chance of attending. The airshow happens once every two years, and the biggest names in the aerospace industry will gather in Singapore along side defence officials representing their home countries. There, they will set up various meetings and make multi-million dollar... Continue Reading →
Classic Negative Film Simulation (Changi Jewel)
I meant to post this weeks ago, but it was only recently that I managed to find time and get around to doing it. I went to Changi Jewel for a mini photoshoot with a couple of my friends. They have not been to Changi Jewel and they wanted to take some photos of the... Continue Reading →
Fujifilm Eterna Film Simulation
On Christmas week, my extended family had a gathering in one of my cousin’s place and I had the opportunity to put my new Fujifilm camera through its paces. Specifically, I wanted to shoot and take pictures of my family members at the gathering using only one particular film simulation. As you know, the new... Continue Reading →
X-Pro 3 first impressions!
On the 28th of November, during lunchtime, I received a call from my local camera store. He was calling to inform me that the Fujifilm’s latest camera, the X-Pro 3 has finally arrived. I was super excited. I headed down to the store after work, and collected my camera. What a beauty! I got the... Continue Reading →
I am getting the Fujifilm X-Pro 3 after all.
Two weeks ago, I made the plunge. I paid the deposit and pre-ordered the X-Pro 3. Such a big purchase was not done lightly. As always, I imposed a two-week cooling off period, where I will not think, read or watch anything related to the X-Pro 3 and only revisit that thought after the cooling... Continue Reading →
Smartphone pictures deserve some Lightroom treatment too
I was browsing through my trove of photos I have accumulated in my iPhone and I realised that there were pictures from two recent vacations that I didn’t really find the time to review them and select the best for further editing. I did edit some of them for Instagram and Facebook, but a vast... Continue Reading →
The Fujifilm X-Pro 3 could be my next camera
I have loved photography since I first own a Canon DSLR. Though I am by no means an expert in photography but it has been a consistent hobby of mind. I have never grown tired of photography. And my love of travel simply magnifies my love of the art of photography. Recently I have researched... Continue Reading →
Camera gear upgrade path is a little clearer now
So two days ago I took a gamble and invested S$150 off Carousell to buy a new pancake lens, the Olympus 14-42mm F3.5-5.6. Its part of a kit lens in some of the Olympus camera systems. Being a pancake lens, this is, according to Olympus, their slimmest zoom lens they have ever made. Olympus’s slimmest... Continue Reading →
Camera gear downgrade?
So recently I wrote about how smartphone cameras are getting so good that, as a casual/enthusiast photographer like me, lugging a separate camera and lens during my travels is no longer an attractive option for me. Smartphone cameras has gotten so good that I feel it is no longer worth the effort in bringing all... Continue Reading →
iPhone 11 Pro Max first 24 hour impressions!
Right off the bat, the biggest improvement I have noticed is how amazing the cameras are in this new iPhone. With the new ultra-wide lens, I think users will find creative and beautiful ways to take advantage of this new lens and create amazing shots. The triple camera system that Apple now adopts for it’s... Continue Reading →
My recent photoshoot rekindled my passion in photography.
A couple of weeks ago, a got a request from my colleague. He wanted a photoshoot with his wife and daughter at the Flower Dome, Gardens by The Bay. It was a way to celebrate the lunar new year and also just take good photos of them 3 as a family seeing their daughter growing... Continue Reading →
Disabling my Smugmug account
I have been using Smugmug to host some of my photographic works over the past few years. The photos that I took from my trusty Olympus OM-D camera were all saved and backed up using the Smugmug file storage services. Now I am disabling the account because I haven't been using the website much. The... Continue Reading →
Iceland Adventure Day 0
Planning for this Grand Adventure began more than 6 months ago. Back then, we were throwing around ideas on our next big holiday. The Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, and Greenland) often came up during our almost weekly discussions over dinner meet ups. At that point of time, we weren’t very keen due... Continue Reading →
One week worth of uploads.
So how long does it took for me to upload almost 500GB of photos to Amazon Cloud Drive? Almost 8 days, non-stop. My Macbook Air was literally switched on, 24/7 for an entire week, so that I could get every single 65,000 or so photos totalling close to half a terabyte uploaded to the cloud.... Continue Reading →
