Of all my frames from USS and RWS, my favourite is the B&W set. The colors rendered by Fuji & the details offered by Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 are terrific & invokes much more emotions than the coloured ones
Street shooting is still what I do most. Below are some of the street shots taken while at RWS on Mother’s Day
Went into a Toast Box coffee shop & saw a real serious guy making his tea & coffee. Immediately bump up ISO to 3200 to immortalise his actions.
Went to Universal Studio which is really a good place to take photos…if you use AF. For manual focus, it’s slightly harder & needed more practice, at least for me, since everything just seems to move so fast. However, BECAUSE it is manual & focusing is slower, you can get some interesting frames that are dreamy due to the OOF effect.
I like this because of the stark contrast offered by the Zeiss glass, plus the clarity is just drooling.
This is slightly overexposed, but the amount of details is there, & of course the subjects are too cute to dismiss.
It’s Mother’s Day & I have plans to bring the ladies (wife & mom) out to thank them for their care & love over the years. Booked a “staycation” at the Festive Hotel at Resort World Sentosa (RWS) & a spa package each at Capella Hotel. Beautiful place I must say, though I did not have time to explore the place due to the fact that I am now the nanny looking after the 2 kids gone wild since the 2 ladies were enjoying their spa time out.
Of course, my trusty X-Pro1 is always by my side at RWS. Took quite a few frames but have difficulty shooting the 2 kids, especially when they are dashing around. Ended up using my 4s as the backup for action shoots, while the X-Pro1 is more for casual street & portraits. Guess I still have to brush up my skills on using manual for fast-pace action shoots.
Pictures of my beautiful wife 🙂
My 2 cheeky boys. Hard to get them to sit & pose for this picture. It is lucky that the well-lighted area allows the shutter to move faster.
This is my fav frame. The natural light from the balcony coming into the slightly dark room gave a nice dreamy, yet sharp look.
Bumped this up to ISO3200 or 4000, can’t remember. Still amazed at the sharpness of the photo 🙂
Will post more street shots of RWS & the Universal Studios Singapore next !!! :->
