I went to a photography workshop with my sister today at the National Museum of Singapore. Ladies only, and the workshop touched on food and travel photography. Before I go on any further, I'll like to ask for an audience to listen to this fail story XD
I had no idea how, but I misread the location as Singapore Arts Museum, and there I was, happily leading my sister to SAM at the cafe, WHICH IS ALSO CALLED FOOD FOR THOUGHT. So when we were there, but there weren't anyone who seemed like they are attending any form of workshop, let along any notice boards indicating so. Feeling that something isn't right, I checked the location again and yeap, that's when we found out it was National Museum and not SAM. Silly me... Once again, I am really bad with directions.. I honestly have no idea how I misread it as SAM all these while and never noticed the mistake.. I probably just assumed it's SAM? Since I saw the word "Singapore Museum"
Anyway, thankfully we managed to reach there on time, because it's nearby (THANK GOD) and we got some badass stuffs in the goodie bag >:D muahahaha We each got a camera bag. Very sassy and lady like, and we also got an 8 GB thumb drive, a neck strap and some nice brochures. I really really like the camera bag weeee! Though sadly to our horror the leather was kinda damaged and it was flaking off when we took a better look at our bags when we got home.
Overall, I enjoyed myself, although I already knew most parts of what was mentioned. The travel workshop mesmerised me though. It made me look forward to my Thailand trip in January. I can't wait to try to take nice shots of there; the food, landscape and the people. I hope there are markets there too so I can get some interesting shots ^^
And here are some shots taken by my sis and me, practicing some food photography tricks we've learnt today. I gotta say, my sis sure do have an eye for food photography!
I forgot to adjust the white balance before letting her try.. So the colours turned out really tungsten XD But really, you can tell she has an eye for food photography. (: I'm impressed.
Mine. I didn't take much, I let my sis try more cause she's more interested in food photography.
Bon appetit! (:
Anime Festival Asia 2013 in Suntec City. Went there on last sunday. It was okay I guess, then again this was my first trip in years so. I wouldn't even consider my first visit one actually hahaha And.. It was very stressful to be there because of the crowd.. Only managed to get some nice shots too
Last weekend, it was Uncle Bernard's birthday. My aunt and him brought me and sissy to an awesome buffet for lunch at Changi airport :D I SPAMED CRAYFISH OF COURSE AND THE HONEYDEW SAGO WAS YUMMY. There was this citrus dessert which was just MMMMMM. But no pics of it haha And that day was my first time taking pictures of fireworks as well. Since I am finally (pretty) free from school work, it's updating time!
So I was taking pics of the chef, asked first of course. And after I'm done, he asked if I'll put it on fb or sth hahahaha Hmm wonder what will happen if I say I'm from somewhere legit next time XD HAHA
Let me introduce to you what I saw that night. So.. to begin with, these things were god damn cranes. Like cranes you'll see on CONSTRUCTION SITES. But they are modified to look like mechanical cranes (pun much haha). Point is, it looked freaking scary and creepy. Why? WELL BECAUSE IT LOOKED AS IF THE CRANES ARE GONNA PICK THE PEOPLE UP AND SQUISH THEM ANYTIME LIKE SOME APOCALYPTIC CRISIS. But towards the ending, the show wasn't as apocalyptic as it is. I supposed that space used to be where songs of the sea were. Oh well.
Now... Fireworks! I shall show the nicer ones first hahaha
Went for a field trip to Singapore Art Museum last week with my classmates. It was an enjoyable experience and really fun! Not to mention I got free stickers too hehe They had various artworks, from paintings to installations to interactive art and videos. I was just having fun, and taking it easy so I didn't pay much attention to the theme, or meanings of the artworks for that matter. Though, they all revolve around time, and what will happen if the world changed. So it was a little futuristic and rather abstract but beautiful at the same time.
I'm amazed at how simple the video works are, and they are all so captivating. The story told through these simple, stagnant shots, are so much more clearer and enchanting than anything I have done.. It made me wonder what I am not doing right, or what I have been missing out while in the midst of learning. The artists used a lot of wide shots, showing the space occupied and the environment. If not (take the short film "End of the world" for example) they used a lot of close up shots, but the definition of the actress was remarkable. It makes you wonder what she is doing, and the curiosity arouses my anticipation constantly. It was an amazing short film. I really like it a lot. It kind of also made me wonder what I should do to achieve such results.. To constantly keep the viewer engaged and anticipate what is going to happen. I suppose background music plays a big part as well, in creating the suspenseful atmosphere so you'll be engaged.
I always say I have so much more to learn.. Yet now I'm wonder if I am learning the right things, or learning correctly... Grrr..
So after months of procrastination, I've finally touched up my first project made and here it is!
It is a leisure project I've done with my friends during the holidays. A simple story told through the style of film noir based on my own interpretation.
Plot: 2 agents has been tracking down a serial killer, known as M, who has taken lives for the fun of it. Finally finding a lead, they race against time to find out who M is, and to put M behind bars.
A real time soccer match, gave me a chance to see a bit of the night life.
1.30am into the early morning, faint flirtatious laughter of slightly drunk girls echoed through the empty streets and across the silent river. I stood by the bridge just outside the restaurant of riverview hotel. Street lights rippled on the waters creating a double image, as I took pictures of the place. It's been awhile.. Since I had alone time like this. The calmness and the opportunity to scan around taking in every bit I see with me. I miss moments like these, too little time perhaps. The one point lighting cast upon the lounge took me away. It felt like a dramatic movie scene.. Godfather style, it's a shame I can't capture the essence of it. One day though, I will. And as I sat here, writing, frustrated Liverpool fans jeered and shouted as the game wasn't going well. Anger filled the air as injustice bestow upon the players with a foul rather than a goal, and other unfair judgments more to come. Meanwhile I stayed indifferent and slightly hungry as I haven't ate dinner. (I know right)
More frustrations tensed the air as the referee became seemingly biased towards the opponent's team (perhaps because they're home). The night ended with a disappointing result of 0-2 of Liverpool and the opponent (I dunno who). 3.30am, and the streets are cleared, the happy people left, probably to club. Not to mention I could hear the constant bass beating in the distance. The clubs were definitely nearby, though I won't imagine myself going to one, unless I want my ears to bleed. Feeling so sleepy now, but I am pretty satisfied with the pictures I took.
Here lies all of my works, ranging from photographs to videos.
