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…

Shark Fishing

I have completely forgotten about these photos. They were taken from Solomon Island last year. I was meant to post, but my laziness caught me up. Eventually, I found them again while organising my Lightroom library.

So, this was on the 2nd day at the Nugu Resort, Solomon Islands. Some new tourists arrived on that day, and they went out for evening fishing. According to them, they caught 3 king fishes and 1 shark at the same spot, and it was their first time fishing on the sea. What a first-time luck!


I had never seen a shark this close before. The skin was super smooth, and it felt like a scuba diving suit.

This man who was a local driver of the fishing boat and he was called to help clean the shark. Although the photo looks rather intimidating, he didn't know what to do in the beginning as he never cleaned a shark before.

So this is the guy who caught the shark. It took some time for them to get the bait hook out of shark's mouth.


It's time to give a quick shower to the dead …

Surfer

One thing I always wanted to do well is a water sport which I can't do at all. Watching people enjoying themselves on the continuous waves from the ocean makes me smile and slightly jealous at the same time.





Thanks for visiting.
