Leftovers Recipe

Whenever I decide to clean up my Aperture libraries, I always find some photographs I considered to post but I didn't. Not that I didn't like those ones, rather they were not quire right with the blog post I was writing at the time. Last year I posted the blog called Director's Cut that includes various images from the film roll I shot, although I regreted my choice of the title as it wasn't really a director's cut.

This time I went back from recent to rather old albums while ruthlessly deleting the photos which I consider as a failure, I come up with a small set of photos which I like to share. Even while I'm typing this sentence, I haven't got the title of this post. Whichever you see up there would be my final choice.

Also, I will also try to give a title to each photograph as they don't have any friends to sit together, and I rarely name them anyway due to the laziness, this would be fun for me. Please enjoy :)
However, it's extremely difficult to come up with a non-cliched name for this kind of photograph. The titles like 'Road', 'Life', 'Love', 'Harmony' and so on. I must have seen way too many soap dramas and completely lost the originality of my own. So, I would call this as 'Old Married Couple at the Lighthouse'.
'Duality' Whatever this thing is, it's drawn twice on the wall with empty space apart. Duality.
'People, People' Really not much story to tell in this one. It's even very recently taken on the Saint Patrick's Day.
'Old Habit' I don't know how many years he has been streching before he jumps into the Australian beach. Just another day for him to enjoy the sun and the ocean.
'Cuckoldry in the Shadow' Actually they were the blood boiling teenagers making out in the park. But I would like to name it differently anyway. I like it this way more.
'Great Expectation' What would be in the end of the stairs? 
'Humanpod' Photography is hard, framing is harder.
'Colour Me Blind' When the colours are all gone and you only get to see the light, you truly appreciate what light can do.
'Spider ... What?' What the .... !

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.
