This September, I will be involved in a photography showcase featuring 20 medium and large format photographers from Clubsnap. The Hassy you see in the poster in mine muahaha ego moment.
Here's the official press release that we drafted.
For Immediate Release.
small people / BIG CAMERAS is a showcase of photographic works captured on medium and large format cameras. The presented works are a mixture of digital and film formats, taken by cameras ranging from the classic Rolleiflex Twin Reflex, a 5x7 camera made almost entirely out of wood and brass, as well as the latest in digital medium format backs.
In today’s digital world of megapixels and high burst-rates, there still exists a thriving community of photographers that are not just shooting film, but shooting with medium and large format film cameras. This form of photography is by nature much slower and more controlled, making it far more involved and contemplative a process as compared to shooting digitally or with a smaller camera. The added benefits of shooting with larger formats are the very visible increase in image quality as well as the inimitable rendering of film that digital photography has yet to successfully emulate. From the gorgeous details to the stunning dynamic range, this showcase of medium format and large format photography is all set to impress.
Featuring the selected works of 20 local photographers, small people / BIG CAMERAS looks to increase the awareness of photography in the larger formats, as well as the promoting of photography as a collective. The public can expect to learn more about the process of shooting with larger formats as well as having a hands-on experience with these exceptional cameras.Read More
As promised, here are my photographs of China, taken with the Hasselblad 503 CXi, 50mm f/4 CFi and 150mm f/4 CFi.
For this trip, I've challenged myself to shoot more color film as well as giving street photography a try with the medium format camera. The Fujifilm Pro 400 H was my choice of color film while the Ilford FP4 125 Plus and Kodak Tri-X 400 were my choice of black and white film.
Fewer words, more pictures. Here we go.
I chose this picture as the first picture of my series for a reason. Exactly one year ago, I was the same place, same spot and almost same time and took a similar shot with my Hasselblad. That photograph and this are best examples of how unpredictable Huangshan can be.
But Huangshan was not the only place I visited in China. I had the opportunity to visit Hangzhou as well as Shanghai in my 7 days there. Here are some of my favorite photographs, taken with the Nex-F3.Read More
I get very annoyed with myself when I don't spend enough time shooting.
The only two photo-related takeaways from last weekend was knowing that one of my photos from the Salsa series got exhibited at Orchard ION.
Ok not exactly the LAST shot but my last subject before I decided to pack up and leave Huangshan, China for good. I'll admit that I spent the most of my time taking tons of touristy photos. It was only on the day that I am leaving the place that I started revisiting places I found interesting. Only then, I started 'seeing'. Maybe this simply means that I need to go back Huangshan one more time. Huangshan, China 西海大峡谷 Hasselblad 501 CM 60mm f/3.5 CF Kenko 2X teleconvertor Ilford FP4 (ISO 125)Read More
I had the honour to doing a review for PSKiss, a company that develops one-click-of-the-mouse filters that converts your images into stunning images. The set of filters I received from them are the black and white filters. The image above is taken during my recent trip to Huangshan, China. It was converted into black and white using the PSKiss Creative Mono filter with +7 grain. Hit the jump for more about the filters.Read More
Came back from my 'grad trip' to Huangshan, China and Hong Kong yesterday night. Here's some of my favorite photos from my Canon Powershot S95. Will post my film shots as soon as I get them back from fotohub. Can I also just add that I love my s95? Amazing digital camera that does all that's required of it.Read More
