Today.. I ber-fanlanjar-ed.
Hmm.. Not much photos this time too. Lol..
Didn’t really move my lazy lard arse much.. oTL
First time meeting Fritz.. Cool guy..
I think for the first time. My photos are gonna be… facebook quality.. oTL
Deleted my original sized files by mistake when I was backing up my old shoots.
Saber Maid Ver. by Angie
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*-.-”
Kagamine Rin by Ryeain
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.
Forest Deer by Angie
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… 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… 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…

Gotta Thank RongTau for the shoot request.
Yup… it’s the same crz from 2012.08.05.CR-Z
Not exactly sure how it goes. But Rongtau’s Crz was chosen to be the one endorsed in Mirai’s custom stickers.
Frankly, it looks jibberlydang cool.
Yup.. I just made up a word. -.-”
I needed to make this post sound somewhat intelligent. *cough*cough*
Mirai Honda CR-Z
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 was rude.
Don’t really have much to say.
Oh ya! Was recently featured in a book showcasing cosplay photography from around here
(I’m being vague.. Lol)
Am Thankful for that…
The photos could have been better, to be honest.
Buuuuut, I’m just glad to be one of the shortlisted photographers.
Dynasty Warriors 7

Today.. I count the number of years since I last visited the Kuala Lumpur Butterfly park.
And it has been a lot. Lol.
Barely remembered a thing from my last visit. But I believe there hasn’t been much change.
The 50mm is quickly becoming my main lens.
Been lugging it around for casual outings since it’s the lightest.
Having said that. I still prefer the 2470cz for studio setups. Mainly cause u’d be going f4 anyway. -.-”
Biggest regret of the day… was not bringing my 70200 along.. oTL
I didn’t bring it along initially knowing that even at 200mm I still wouldn’t be able to take a decent “close-up” compared to the other 2 lens.
What I didn’t think of, was that at 200mm, I could try to catch shots of the butterflies flying. In motion. Wings fluttering.
70mm didn’t give me enough distance to not creep out the butterflies. Scaring them off.
Every photo you see here, is majorly cropped. Lol!
In the original photos, the butterflies would probably make up for just 3% of the photo..
You wouldn’t be able to see jack unless I released the full resolution photo. LOL!
Oh.. And a little tip for aspiring insect shooters.
I took all my photos composing the butterflies dead center of my viewfinder. Knowing that I would crop them later on during post-process.
I don’t know if it’s the psyche in me talking or technically true, but I find focusing at the center tends to be faster and more accurate.
Especially if you are using prime. Lol..
Anyway.. test it out and see if it helps..
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|-<

Today… I shot in a mansion.. Xp
Hong Mei Ling, fanart Vers. by Venus
Thought we’d grab a few quick shots for Hong Mei Ling since she was cosplaying her for an event earlier today.
And happened to be going to a friends house which had some sort of a chinese inn/palace vibe going on.
Well.. he calls it a house. I’d call it a mansion. -.-”
Thankfully, Venussama seemed to like the location as well.
Thought they blended well together.
Also! Want to Thank AhSi of MahSiTong Holdings… Lol.. Xp
Today… I figured some wedding themed photos would be a good addition for a portfolio.
Today… I feel lucky.
Got to thank Mr.Arrow for prepping his Vios for the shoot.
Not only was it a last minute shoot. But he actually waxed his car after I asked him for the shoot.
Just 2 hours before!
