Open Houses are fun – for photography that is. Decided to drop by the RSAF Open House with my wife & kid to expose the little one to some real big man’s toy instead of his puny toy aircrafts. The weather was fantastic–ally hot & walking about broke us out in a big sweat. I was carrying my heavy Tokina 11-16mm (built like a tank) somemore & was heaving an hour later.
Lots of stuffs to shoot, I would say, but the presence of the crowd “blemished” some of the shots that would be nicer if it was in solitary. Have to adjust & overexpose a lot of my shots to counteract the brightness. Overall, I would say it’s a good trip. Will be there next year!
Besides street, we also went into a few stalls near Arab Street. There are lots curios over there for the avid photographer.
Desker Road is a famous…infamous place in Singapore that has the highest density of transsexuals…However, the other aspect of Desker is that it has a lot of nice stuffs to capture – in terms of photography. The DMG Photographers Club decided to make a trip there on a Sat morning to catch up on things & take some photos at the same time. I was using my Tokina 50-135mm. It was a very sharp lens wide open even though it was relatively cheaper than the Canon or Sigma close cousins. However, I was told that it was out of production. Lucky to get one 🙂
Caught this Charile’s Angel look. Taken with the Tokina 50-135mm
I have a love-hate relationship with Chinese New Year – love it because the atmosphere is great & you get to see long-lost relatives, & hate it because it drains a lot of money out of me…Decided to go out with Vincent to capture some of the CNY colors with my Tokina 11-16mm – the best ultra wide-angle that I recommend any day.
