The exhibition - 'Mangae' by KWASS

Even though you are from Sydney I bet you haven't heard of the organisation, KWASS - The Korean Women's Art Society in Sydney. It's a Sydney based art community for Korean women only. They hold numerous exhibitions and seminars every year. This time from 1 June to 29 June the latest exhibition - 'Mangae' is held at the Fountain Court Gallery in Sydney Parliament House.

One of my family member is participated in this event, so I made myself travel to the gallery on the opening night. Some shots from the event.

You will find a good mixture of excellent photos, painting and other types of art works. I personally never been to the Parliament house before, the first time I entered into the building. I have to say the tax payers' money has been well spent inside. The interior of the exhibition room was great.

Although they only open during the inconvenient weekdays, but if you happen to stay in the city, it's a good place to visit. If you are new to Sydney, then it's a bonus place as it's quite close to the Opera House :)

All the photos were taken with Finepix X100.

Thanks for visiting.

Post Processing

Although I enjoy photography as an escape from the daily grind, I can't fully distance myself from being a photographic geek when it comes to cameras and gears. I have subscribed numerous camera review channels on YouTube and can spend hours reading/watching about various old and new cameras. Especially, most of the brand new digital cameras, they tend to show off their amazing new sensor, super fast shutter speed, and high ISO capabilities resulting in amazing low light performances ... then, I start to scratch my head thinking that post-processing I do nowadays is done to degrade the quality of photo to have a so-called 'vintage film look'.

The Funny thing is that I still love working with RAW files to start with, and the first processing I do is always de-noising an image. Even when I'm almost certainly sure that I'm heading for a coarsely grained result, somehow I like to start with a picture with least amount of noise. It's just like preparing a white canv…

What I Talk About When I Talk About Gears - Ricoh GR

I love camera gears. I like to read about them and learn about them and discuss them. I'm subscribed to various camera review channels on YouTube, my news feeds never miss the latest trend in the camera world, and I have more than one friends on Facebook who never get bored of posting the camera news. So, as you can see, I spend enough time musing on the gear.

Meanwhile, as much as I like them, I try hard to avoid them as it took me a couple of years to realise that the type of camera I use has the least amount of contribution to the quality of the photo.

Even worse, I (personally) do believe that spending more time of gear has an adverse impact on developing photographic skills of my own. So, there I said it. Considering what I stated above, I'm definitely contradicting myself when it comes down to camera gear.

The funny thing though is that the primary motivation behind starting this blog was the new gear I fell in love with at that time, which I still do - Fujifilm X100.…

Instagram and Smartphone

Recently, I haven't been around my blog for a long time.

I haven't been taken many photos in a way that I used to do. Personally, I have moved to a new home, and this hectic business of house hunting and moving had completely consumed me for a couple of months. After all the hard work, finally, I can have some sense of relaxation in the new place and am trying to bring my life back to normal again. At least I can confirm that the little passion I had for photography hasn't died out.

Besides moving stuff, nowadays, I can’t even bother packing a single camera other than my phone. Even after I have shrunk the size of my gear as small as Ricoh GR, I have come to the conclusion that the best camera to carry around is no camera at all. You just can’t beat the portability and the convenience of modern smartphones. Especially, thanks to the healthy competition between phone makers on camera, you only need a single tough to take a good quality photo. On top of an excellent camera,…
