Moonlight caught in film

Maybe I should stop publishing a blog before I get my film developed, then posting another one with the film ones. I guess I'm just too impatient.

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

The tripod was obvious companion for all these images. The lens was Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.4. The manual adapter for OM10 only shoot up to 1sec, and I didn't have bulb shooting release. So I decided to take as much as light it can, and I ended up shooting at wide open f/1.4, 1sec.

Some interesting scenes were captured, and it's good for me to compare the last one to the digital image  in the previous post. Both of them were shot at the exactly same place. Literally my X100 was sitting on top of OM10 which was attached to the tripod. I coulnd't be bothered to swap the camera for the tripod :)

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.
