Orpheus

This blogpost is long overdue. A couple of months ago, I collaborated with K is for Kani for a quick photoshoot to showcase one of her favorite designer’s dress. I’ve been slacking and never had a chance to show these photos on here.

Photos are shot with a mix of Portra 400 and Fuji 400H. More photos can be found here at K is for Kani’s Blog.

For those who are interested, Connie is wearing Alice McCall Maxi Dress: Orpheus.

Study Room

I finally bought myself a proper study desk after contemplating which one to choose. I went with stationary trestle study desk from Freedom Furniture, which was on special last weekend. Here’s a glimpse of how it looks in my study.

Jesse’s trying to help me with my editing.

Fort Nepean

Took a day trip exploring the Fort Nepean – Mornington Peninsula yesterday. It was the former defensive facility occupying part of Point Nepean,Victoria. We had to park our car at the parking area and walked approx. 2km one way to the engine house. It was pouring earlier in the day and then the wind was freakishly strong that we struggled to walk a straight line. 

To this date, this place is called “Victoria’s Gibraltar”, and here are some photos taken after the rain.

Jesse “Pinkman” Boston Terrier

I’ve been very busy lately with moving out of my old rental place & moving into my new home. Also, I’ve been kept busy with the newest addition to my family member – Jesse. I’ve always wanted a dog and finally now that I have my own place I’m able to own one.

Here’s a little bit about Jesse. She’s named after Jesse Pinkman (One of the main characters in the TV series Breaking Bad). Jesse is a Boston Terrier and I adopted her when she’s 7 months old. By the time I’m writing this blog, she’s approx. 11 months now. Time does flies. Anyway, here are some photos I have taken of her at her best behaviour.

The Adriani Family

Christina and I acquainted when we both attended a food photography workshop, but we found out we actually had some mutual friends.

Her parents and sister were visiting Melbourne at the time so she asked if I could do a casual family portraits for them. She mentioned it’s a rare occasion that her whole families were at the same place at the same period of time, so I hope these photos captured those happy moments that hopefully someday they’ll treasure with nostalgia.

Spring is here!

Okay, I didn’t do much on the weekend aside from house hunting again and again. Someday I’m going to find my dream home.

I was supposed to be shooting a couple session last weekend, but due to a little hiccup we had to postpone it. This couple is getting married at the end of November and guess who their wedding photographer is (Hint: your reading his blog right now).

Our rendezvous was at the State Library in the CBD, and as usual while waiting I took some snapshots of the surroundings.

And lastly, I’ll leave you with a photo of the flower bouquet that the guy gave the girl.

Winter Photowalk in the CBD

I’ve been really swamped with work and some personal stuff, so the blog has been abandoned for a while now.

I shot through a roll of Fuji400H one weekend and I finally get the scans back. This is not scanned by my usual lab, but by a mate from Sydney who owns an amazing film scanner. Man, everytime I shoot film I always feel so impressed how the colours and tones just come out perfectly.

Anyway, the photos were about some kinda protests that happened that weekend in front of the Melbourne State Library. Hope you guys like them.

Food Styling & Photography

Okay, I have to admit that I have a soft spot for food photography. Second to portraiture, food photography is probably the only other genre that I feel comfortable with. Most of my food photos were taken in a restaurant with no proper styling and lighting and I got really frustrated editing those photos when I got home.

I recently found out that Billy Law – the talented guy behind A Table For Two - was coming to Melbourne to conduct a food photography workshop. I hesitated at first because I’ve never been to a food workshop before and feel slightly awkward but I took the plunge and registered it eventually, and it was possibly one of the best decisions I have ever made. From the workshop I got to know some talented photographers & food bloggers and on top of it all I got to learn more about food styling by Billy himself.

Here are some of my favorite photos taken from the workshop. Note: I got to eat almost all of these food.

On a sunny winter’s day

I finally bought a small point and shoot film camera into my collection. I’ve been a fan of Zeiss and Contax and these two combinations are found in a Contax T3.

Last friday I finally received my mint conditioned T3 and I took it out on the weekend to test it out. I loaded it with a Kodak Gold 200 and the photos that came out were just plain sharp! I’m very much impressed. Although, it is slightly bigger to fit into my jean’s pocket but it is still portable.

Anyway, these are some of the sample photos I took while roaming around Melbourne’s CBD. Photos were scanned by Michael’s camera.

Engagement – Azelia and Edwin

This is the first engagement shoot I ever did with almost 100% film. All of the photos below are taken with Fuji 400H except one photo. Let’s see if anyone can identify it.

It was so much fun to photograph these two lovebirds. I wish them both all the happiness in the world. They’re getting married in a few months.

The MUA is Dlover Makeup, based in Melbourne CBD.
