Glebe Street Fair 2012

The 18th Nov was a special day for me as I visited Glebe Street Fair for the first time and also first ever I shot with Kodak Tri-X 400. Without a single doubt I fell in love with both.

One thing you need to know before you head to Glebe Street Fair is that it's really crowded. It may not be very clear on the photo, but she is taking a photo of Glebe Point Rd that is packed with the crowd, river of people flowing on the street. More people means more interesting stuffs to look for, so it's good for me!

Then, there was a samba parade in the middle of Glebe Point Rd. It looked good (obviously) but I wasn't very good at focusing. Oh dear, this is the time you definitely don't wanna miss :) Thankfully even after my clumsy manual focusing manouver, I could save some shots. Zone focusing next time for sure.

All the images were taken with Olympus OM10 with Kodak Tri-X 400.

After I got the scanned images of the first Tri-x roll, it was just wow ... Probably this is the one of the oldest film has been around and I could see why. The grain, texture, contrast and tone of the image. I just fell in love with it. I made a bulk order of Tri-x 400, and I can see myself shooting this film for some time.

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 …


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.
