Compact camera shoot around


One of the most basic rule in photography I would usually tell whoever asks advice is any camera on hand is better than no camera, well, today can be different given the arise of camera phone, and I might just borrow what Steve Jobs said, the iPhone might be just the best camera, as he said the iPhone may be the best iPod.
Anyway, the point is, having something to shoot is better than just watch – as a photographer.
This is an image taken earlier with a very simple Canon Digital iXUS 750, in fact just because it is compact and convenient to frame the image, one can in fact capture shots that otherwise difficult if using larger camera.

Sunset over The Pacific Ocean


This is an image taken on the flight TG466, over looking The Pacific Ocean off the coast of islands of Indonesia.   Calm ocean surface perfectly reflects the clouds above it, and one would realize it was given such a name.

Taken with SONY NEX-5, from the air, Indonesia, 2011

Skin Tone


A complicate subject to shoot simply because it dominates the image area in shot such as this one.   It is true today’s digital technology allows extreme flexibility in controlling the white balance therefore the skin tone can be tuned into many shades, let along all other controls in Photoshop.
But this is just a simple shot, simply to portrait a beautiful girl, fragile, and delicate.  A girl grown up!

Of Tree and Paper


Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.
