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
It's been more than a year and a half since I jumped into the world of Hasselblad V series cameras. A lot has happened since but one thing for sure is that my love for the V series cameras never changed.
I wrote the article below when I was in the market for one camera.
Now, I am ready to write something in-depth, which I hope will somehow convince you to get it as well. If you have any questions that you would like to ask about Hasselblad cameras, drop me a comment and I will incorporate it in my new entry.
In the mean time, do check out my article from 2011.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
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
Say hi to the latest addition to my family of Hasselblad - the 60mm f/3.5 CF T* from KEH. However, the lens arrived with a pretty bad eye-sore...Read More
Let me start by first saying that I am very sick and may not be thinking straight. Why else will I be blogging about wanting to buy a Hasselblad in the first place huh? Secondly, I'm sick but I cannot sleep. That's why I decided to put all my thoughts into this entry.Read More
Buying a medium format camera This is too freaking funny.Read More
After several DSLR purchases and three medium format camera (with two digital backs) later, I finally bought a digi-cam for the first time in my life. Kinda ridiculous yeah? But all along i have been using/borrowing others' digi-cam to do the not-important-enough-to-use-dslr occasions. With the Canon Powershot S95, i figured the time was right to finally get one. Some random shots. I won't be doing a thorough review because there already are excellent reviews out there. All images are straight out of the camera and only resizing on PS was done.Read More
I would like to think that I know enough of medium format photography to share some stuff with those interested in investing in one such system. Whether or not you are getting a 645 or 6x6 or 6x7, the following information will be useful to know.Read More
As soon as I heard someone knock the door this morning, I knew my Mamiya Sekor-C 45mm f/2.8 has finally arrived.
Particularly pleased because I resisted buying from local shops. Instead, I gambled by buying it from eBay and saved 100 bucks.
Time to take it out for some landscape shoots. For those of you who don’t know, medium format 45mm is about 28mm in the world of 135mm photography. Read More
