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…

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 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.

Today… I had breakfast at 9pm.
It’s photos like these which makes me think that Sony’s alpha series were made to be blasted under the sun.
Going at 1/8000 albeit the wide aperture between f1.4 and 2.8;
The colors turn out nice and rich.
Venus has recently started commissioning costumes, custom-made attires and props.
And if you have the memory of an elephant, you’d remember me mentioning that she makes all her costumes herself.
When I say costumes, I mean top-notch, quality prioritized costumes.
Not to mention that they look very well made.
So I’d like you guys to check out her site.
See if anything fits your fancy.
Be whether you are looking for your next cosplay project,
or some fancy ornaments.
Drop by and have a look.
Thanks for the support!!
Yes.. the costume below, was 100% self made by Venus.
My photos don’t do her detailing skills justice i assure you.

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 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 tagged along with kamisama to a Ipoh.
She was invited as one of the judges for a cosplay competition held in conjunction with Perak Youth.
