Today.. I believe I shall stop spamming abit. Lol!
Not exactly high on writers mood these days. -.-”
Today.. I promised myself never to ask puk wong if he wants to try any of my food ever again. Lol!
Been a long long time since I had the chance to shoot with all six of em.
Since Hakuoki a few years back. Now all of them more mature liau.
Ahur ahur ahurr hurr.. Lol!
I think I might have scared some of them off. -.-”
Didn’t get to shoot senyakun though.. oTL
I ish sad.. -.-”
Stupid fella.. rather run to toilet camwhore than to grab a few pics with me.

Today… I fell asleep while fetching ryeain home. -.-”
but she doesn’t know.. cause she was “fishing” too.. hahaha..
Alllmost rain as we headed to the location. Almost.. lol.
Ran into Chyeboon, Felicia and Carmen as well at the park.
Forgot to snap a pic of them before going off. Paisehpaiseh.
Today Ryeain LoLi mode ON! Lol.. *wipesweat*-.-”

Today.. I ate spider webs. Which despite it being literally, am sure most of you have. -.-”
Angie threatened to throw apples and stones at my camera, lens and me.
I also dunno why I ask her for shoot… trollololol.. >D
Nice meeting Nerv and Y.Lai as well.

Today… was steak and cheese day. Lol..
Want to thank Arisa for accepting an impromptu shoot.
And then willing to try random shits with me.
I won’t say all the photo turned out well.
My flash control sucks as usual.
But there are a few gems which turned out quite well..
to me at least.. Xp
Fortitude by Arisa Chow
Today… my heart fluttered many many times; As friends expressed how much they like my photography.
As will most photographers when they are told how much you admire their work.
So do the right thing.
Tell someone how much you admire their work today (only if it’s true of course)
And put the discouraged heart at ease.
Even if that photographer is an infamous one. >D
Could have sworn it was troll material.. >D
Things seem to be going pretty well. So far…
The cossers I’ve been working with are awesome.
And that really helps out way way more than you can imagine.

Today… we must have used the word “old” for at least a hundred times.
I seriously have not talked this much in a shoot for a long long time.
I don’t know if the previous shoot counts.
I was pretty much sleep mumbling. Lol..
This was a good chat. Lol..
Oh ya. I’ll be honest.
Initial plan for the shoot was for it to be some dark flashy concert style.
With a mic and the works. Then I realized the mistake.
We set the shoot too early. Lol!
I couldn’t drown out the outside light. -.-”
And when I did, my flash couldn’t compensate for it anymore.
Quickly changed plans. And instead, worked with whatever light I can find.
Didn’t expect to love the outcome so much.. :3
Thank you!!! \o/
Singularity by Xsaye
To be honest, I don’t even KNOW the definite meaning of the word. Lol.
Logic though. Logic and common sense gives me an idea.
Today… I had 16 emptied batteries. None left to power my flash.
It’s a sad story really.
I have a habit. I keep newly charged batteries in boxes.
And used or emptied batteries out of the box.
Went to this shoot with a box full of batteries.
But the moment I start shooting, 4 just died off after another.
Switched batteries. Fires 2~3 rounds. And stops responding again.
Batteries lasted me only the first two cosplayers.
After that, I just had to shoot away.
Regardless of how the flash would sometimes fire.
And even when it did fire, it’s some half-arsed choked up sorry excuse of light.
Anyway.. reflecting on it later.
I’m pretty sure it’s because my batteries have been around for 3 years (rechargables)
And the fact that I’ve not used them for months. Despite being fully charged the last time I touched them.
Lesson of the day…
Charge your batteries EVEN if you have not used them since the last time you charged.
Well.. depending on how long was the last time you used them.
They say that doing that might kill your battery.
I would have rather killed the batteries than to have such a big slip-up during a shoot!

Today… I got so tired from a shoot I never wanted to lift up a camera anymore…
Until the next day that is.. :p
Lol. For lack of a decent title, I make up with a few photos.
Seems like my facebook page is given the warm welcome from the local and foreign community.
For that I am very VERY grateful.
Am also grateful to Byou, Raz, Joseph for tolerating my constant blabbering that night.
Making lame jokes over and over and over again.
Then proceeding to scare everyone in the car.
Before going back into a state of constant mumbling.
Even when I myself no longer know what I was talking about.
A state triggered whenever I’m over-exhausted.
Now that you know.
Don’t say I never warned you!
Today… I did a failed handbrake turn in the rain. Xp
Ok guys.. here’s the thing.
My wordpress is pretty much hitting storage space quota in probably a few more posts.
And frankly, i thought about trying my luck at facebook pages as well. As in expanding my network.
See the fb like box below? Yup.. that’s my new page. I shall be posting my new shoots there. I mean, I’ll still parallel post on both sites for now. But when the space hits zero. I’ll be fully on fb i guess…
Hope everything works out..!
To everyone who drops by NaNeee?! wordpress every now and then. Please do continue dropping by at the fb page. Your support is very much appreciated and means a lot to me.
As staple as it sounds, it’s true…

Today… it felt like time reverted.
Once again, I live for no one but myself.
It feels a little lonely I admit.
But that is the way it should be.
My saddest moments are my best.
Sounds pathetic but true to the heart.
Only one direction I can think of heading right now.
And it’s a direction I shall walk alone.
Unless if I count friends. Then I shall come en masse.

*Warning: BIG MOFO PICTURE!*
Hmm.. maybe I should put the warning above the picture.
As in before it loads…
I don’t know if anyone noticed. But I stopped doing the “Today I…” thingie.
Lol.. Frankly speaking, even I myself forgot about it.
When preparing this post only did I realize that I stopped doing it since the last few post.
Shall begin again next post.
Gonna skip that for this post for reasons I rather not say..
Hmm… this just reminded me. I need a tripod. -.-”
Seems like I have yet been able to add slow shutter speed shots to my gallery.
Concurrently, one of my flash just took a crap on me.
I don’t even know if I’m just giving myself an excuse to buy a tripod or I’m just bored.

Today… I was reluctant.
So.. I did a Chinese New Year shoot this year. Lololol..
Not only am I late posting this shit up.
But I was late handing out the photos to the cossers.
This is actually a much bigger group.
But taking a long time to warm up and getting the settings right.
We ran out of time before I even manage to grab everyone.
Sorry Eclair.. -.-”
Also, dropped by another place earlier to take more exclusive shots of Venus as Yuuko.
Hence the difference in background settings.
Just in case anyone is wondering…

Day by day, my interest in photography dies just a little bit more.
No longer feeling the drive to create mesmerizing photos.
Instead, maybe selling off the camera and lens, then using the money to fund a new car or something.
Sad to say.. it’s part of moving on?

Today… I got kicked out of two location in one hour.
Hmm.. i feel a need for change.
Don’t exactly have the patience or endurance to change locations.
Would like to shift focus on to studios, something indoors.
That would really test my creativity now would it.
Something which I don’t have much of… oTL
Now, if only I can get a big empty space.
Somewhere I can setup my lights and leave it.
I “kinda” already have the frames which I can hang cloths on.
Maybe some L.E.Ds as well… :3
Ok.. forgive my gibberish..
I’m getting old..

Today… I bought new year clothes.
Did you guys know…
that it is exceptionally hard to shoot someone with vivid red hair.
I was looking through my photos,
wondering why my subject’s face looked sunburn,
before it hit me.
Her red wig is reflecting light!! Toning her face red!!
Well, I guess it depends on a lot of other factors as well.
Like how the wig is styled. If it covers her face or if her face is open to the surrounding light.
Or maybe if the light source from the photographer (flash/reflector/yabajaba) goes through a front fringe before hitting the subject’s face.
Here’s something for you to think about if you agree with me..
Have you ever had the same problem when shooting wigs of other colors?
Just a short shoot before I headed off to Times Square to get myself some new clothing.
Most Chinese has this custom of wearing new clothes during Chinese New Year.
The first 2 days at least.
Something to signify a new beginning… I guess.. -.-”

Today… I shot way too little people given the amount of time I had.
I was reminded that you really can’t bank on personal shoots at an event.
There are too many cosplayers, too little time.
Other things to consider at events is the fact that lightings will never be the same
as you move around the convention hall.
Maybe looking for walls to bounce off to.
But if you want the lighting you want, you can setup your own light stands and softboxes.
Even so, upon doing that, you no longer have the mobility to move around chasing cosplayers.
Unless you get someone else to look after your stuff. Lol.
You are gonna have to hope that cosplayers will come to you instead.
And even then, the cosplayers who came to you for some photos might not necessarily be er.. convincing.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that events could be the most random source of photos for one.
You might turn up with amazing photos.
You may turn up with horrible photos.
You may even lose all your photos due to memory card malfunction.
But more importantly, is that you have a good time.
Regardless of what photos you turn out with.
And that, I did…
Comic Fiesta 2012
HAPPY NEW YEAR FOLKS! Xp
Today… i had the urge to jump ship.
Was contemplating on whether to jump to Canon. More specifically, a Canon 6D.
Think about it.
With the price I have to pay for an a99,
I can get a Canon 6D and still have enough for a decent lens.
Another factor giving me the drive is the fact that the a99′s noise performance is still lacking when compared to the general others.
Also, I’m more tempted on the videography factor of a d-slr than the photographic performance.
Seeing how i don’t shoot much this days. An all rounder would be better use.
Gonna take my time with this. Lol.
Heck, don’t have the money for it anyway. Xp

Today.. I update NaNeee?! after weeks of inactivity.
Been addicted to a game lately.
Ragnarok Online. It doesn’t boast awesome graphics. No superb sound effects either.
But it’s free.. LoL! I’ll take it!
Oh wait.. It’s free because it’s run by a private server. Not by the official RO company.
Unfortunately, this means me slacking off my posts. -.-”
Pardon if your neck en-lengthens over the past few weeks.

Today… I did a shoot in conjunction of a local movie release, Kepong Ganster, to show support.
… Ok. I lied. LOL!
Thought it would make a funny joke. -.-”
Hmm.. it seemed funny when I thought of it.
Not so now that I execute it. Joker Fail.. oTL
Hmm… f4 give or take some.
One uncovered flash for the high contrast.
One softbox to soften the shadows caused by the first flash.
Mostly, if not all, on the 2470cz.
Turned out ok i guess… -.-”
On a sidenote… oTL
I can’t FREAKING wait for the a99. Arghhh.. Still saving the moolah for it.. o|-<
