My First Portrait Shoot

Howdy!

Have always wanted to shoot portraits of models.

This series is my very first and serious attempt at portrait photography. The theme is fighter, I want to capture the aggression, tension and determination of fighting spirit. I’m still learning about portrait photography and still have a long way to go. If you have any valuable and constructive feedback for me, don’t hesitate to drop a comment or email me. =)

Hope you’ll enjoy the photos!

From a different perspective

Howdy,

Ever dreamt of being a photojournalist? I’ve always thought that being a photojournalist will be amazing, I still think that way and I hope that one day it’ll come true! Being at the frontline experiencing a totally different environment, uncovering stories and documenting them as a historical record.

Each and every story is worth documenting because they represent a specific time frame in our time capsule. The way to retain them is to have it photographed.

Photography is beautiful because its once true.
Here’s a really nice cover of HAITI.

Cross Processing

Howdy!

It’s been a long while since I update slickflicksphotography! Apologise for that, I’m being bombarded with tons and tons of school work and hardly get a chance to go on a date with my camera.

Luckily New Year is here and i have some free time to spare. So here are some photos from my TLR [Mamiya C220]!

The film that I’ve use was Provia 400x for the color and Ilford 400 Professional for B&W. Both films are of high quality and I hope I’ve done them justice with the photos. Since I’m using Provia 400x, I shall use this opportunity to introduce cross processing to you guys.

Cross processing is known as a technique of developing one type of film in another chemicals. The most commonly used films for such process are know as slides film. Such processing usually gives you “surprise” results, some examples are high contrast, color shift and etc. If you play with Lomography, you’ll be more exposed to idea of cross processing.

Here are some photos from my shoot! Enjoy!

The other side of Holland Village

Howdy!

Ever been to Holland Village?
Holland Village is a small commercial enclave situated in the south of Singapore. During the day time, it is quiet and peaceful. When night falls, it will transform into a vibrant small town with nightly live music from the bars, you will also be able to find sumptuous delicacies from the markets and eateries. To a lot of Singaporeans this is the image of Holland Village.

I want to show the other side of Holland Village, the neighborhood that we seldom see or do not know about Holland Village. Here are some photos from my walk about in Holland village on a Saturday afternoon. Hope you like them!

Improving your photographing skills

Howdy people!

Like everything in life, we seek for improvement. We want to achieve a certain goal and be proud of it. Such thing does not happen over night, it takes months or even years!

I’m continuously looking for ways to improve my photography aptitude. I shall share some of the methods that I’ve used before and find them effective.

  1. Shoot more! As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. It applies to photography too! The more you shoot the more experience you will gain. You will become more aware of the photos that you want to take and how are you going to capture them. In other words, you’ll be more aware of your own mistakes and know how to avoid them.
  2. Shoot with friends! Shooting with friends really help a lot! Moreover with a DSLR, you are able to correct each other mistake immediately. The best thing is, you might get another chance to capture that moment. I started off by shooting with friends frequently; I find this way of learning most effective.
  3. Photo Clinic! Organise a photo clinic to review each other’s photo. A photo clinic will only be successful when every participant provides constructive comments on the pictures. This is also a session to bond and share interesting stories about your photos. I always find photo clinic intriguing and entertaining!
  4. Read more photography books! I’ve read quite a few photography books, and they really helped. One very decent book is “Within the Frame The Journey of Photographic Vision” by David DuChemin. A good friend of mine recommended it to me and I really enjoyed reading it.
  5. Think before you shoot! Ask yourself why do I want to capture this? What makes it so special? What should I include in the frame and what should I exclude? Where should I place the focus on? How should I compose it?

I will not say that I’m an excellent photographer but these are methods that have accompanied me along the way, and I find them really useful!
There is no harm trying, giving it a try and let me know if it helps.

The Art of Criticism

Hello!

Often than not, we always judge and comment on other photographs. Have we critique it constructively or destructively?
What is the profound knowledge behind photo criticism? Sometimes, I am also a culprit of destructive photo criticism, I critic the photo based just on my personal liking instead of ways to improve it.

This article talked about photo criticism, and how to provide constructive critics. It is both intriguing and educating, enjoy it!
