Sydney Opera House

As one of the most visited place in the world, the Sydney Opera House is full of people from every corner of the planet all the time. Most of them enjoying their first visit to the site and well occupied with photo shooting session.

Typically, long holiday is the best time to get a new camera, especially if the destination is overseas. Consequently, the Opera House is the place where you can find many different kinds of recently released fresh cameras. As a person who occasionally suffers from GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), taking a walk around the place feels like visiting Camera Expo and quite interesting to watch new gadgets on the current market.
     Chimping Altogether
I don't think I will never be able to become a serious photo jounalist as I do like taking a photo of people in their happiness so much. This group of gentleman from Asia makes me smile every time I look at their faces. It's good to have people who can share the good time together.
Ladies in both hands
I was thinking that he had a nice shopping bag in his hand.
Action photographers
Time to bring out your inner artist girls!
Where is Opera House?
Her bizzare shooting angle took me some time to figure out what she was doing. I bet she would appreciate new camera with vari-angle LCD screen. Personally, I'm really curious about the photos she took. Unfortunately I have no means to contact her in anyway, so if the funny destiny somehow brings you here to my blog, then please contact me and show me your photos.
Hard-core Camera
And this was also the first time I met a photographer who shoots with Nintend DS.
Portraiture
I love the spot they are sitting on. The best place to enjoy a chilling bottle of white wine in the hot summer night. If it's not too busy week days, even better.

All the images were taken with X100, on the cloudy day.

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,…
