Don't throw me in jail for this shot. The hat was already there when I visited this ruins in Ayuthaya, Thailand.
That said, this shot of a Buddha statue and tourist hat pretty much sums up the state of Ayuthaya for me.
Just about three hundred years ago, this little island was the jewel of Siam, a rich kingdom with plenty of wealth to show through all those golden statues.
More information about Ayuthaya here.
I don't have pictures of Ayuthaya in it's golden era but walking around these ruins, I can't help but immerse myself in the world of 'what if?'.
What if I was born in the golden era of Ayuthaya? How does the place really look like?
That was the main reason why I decided to re-visit this place after 2009.
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've been photographing a lot in black and white lately so I decided to pop a roll of Ektar 100 into my Hasselblad instead.
Got to say that it remains my default choice of film when it comes to shooting landscape. Though not as vivid as slide film like the Fuji Velvia 50, the Ektar 100 is in a class of it's own when it comes to color negative.Read More
I first encountered VSCO (Visual Supply Company) through my friend Benjamin last year. I did not give it much thought about its capabilities back then, for some strange reason.
This afternoon, I revisited the website and wondered how is it that I managed to overlook such a cool product.
If you have been shooting digital and wondered just what you need to do to achieve the amazing colors of film like Kodak Portra 400 and Tri-X, then VSCO's film emulation is the product for you.Read More
It has been a while since I last used a Mamiya AFD (4x3 format) to photograph Punggol.
If I did not remember wrongly, the last time was in 2009 when my images were exhibited as part of a group exhibition.
How things have changed in three years.Read More
The news of Kodak's bankruptcy finally became a reality over the week.
And that's a really terrible piece of news for film lovers like me and all those around the world. I remember the first film that I used when learning photography was the T-Max 400 back in 2004 together with a Nikon FG-20. So yes, Kodak film does has a special place in my photography journey and it's sad to see how a big company like them fall apart.Read More
I'll make no secret that I am quite the fan of Jose Villa and his approach to wedding photography, shooting exclusively on film and such.
So when Lydia and Shuohan came knocking on my door to help them with their ROM shoot, I jumped at the opportunity. It got better when Lydia was willing to experiment with film for the shoot.Read More
My Hasselblad 160mm f/4.8 CB finally arrived last month so I took it out for a walk.
However, I find myself shooting most of the time with my 60mm f/3.5 CF instead. It makes sense, because the 60mm is a 35mm equivalent on a 135mm DSLR and that makes it a really good walk-around lens.
In fact, I used the 60mm for most of my shots in China and the now-sold 150mm occasionally.Read More
I am majorly annoyed with Vuescan and Silverfast. Technically I should be annoyed with Kodak Ektar 100 too but the film is giving me way too psychedelic/awesome color I could ever hope for in a shot so it is spared from my wrath. The shot above you see is scanned using Vuescan. Now take a look at the one below, scanned with Silverfast.Read More
Just collected my roll of Ektar 100 film from fotohub. Very pleased with this long exposure shot of mine. Hasselblad 501 CM + 60mm f/3.5 CF T* with Kodak Ektar 100. If i did not remember wrongly, the exposure is 128 seconds at f/11. As for the rest... hmm... I'll upload them when I get home later tonight. Epson V700 is coming home.Read More
