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.

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.

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.

Wong Family

When I was asked by Kenneth if I’d be interested to photograph his family, I immediately responded yes. Kenneth is a friend I know way back to the uni days. He got married a few years ao and he and his wife were the first couple that I ever took engagement photograph for. These two lovebirds had been the starting point of my couple/wedding/engagement photography.

Despite being tired & jetlagged by a 1-hout red-eye flight from Kuala Lumpur, their parents and families still managed to keep happy and smiley faces throughout the photoshoot. This is something I truly admired.

Just as me with my photography, Kenneth has his own pet project of his own. He’s the co-founder of the website called Bolboland. If you ever need a bolster, now you know where you can find one here in Australia.

Williamstown Beach – Outing with MPC

Last weekend, a bunch of us from the Monash Photography Club went to Williamstown Beach for a photowalk. I usually shoot with my Nikon DSLR, but I decided on that day that I would try using my old Yashica TLR which I have bought a while back but never had the chance to try it out. Because of its old age, the light meter has not been working and thankfully I have the Sekonic Light Meter L308S Flashmate to use with it.

I shot with Kodak Portra 160, overexposed at 100. I had the film developed and scanned by Vanbar, and I’m pleasantly surprised with how awesome the overall quality of the photos. For those who are unfamiliar, the size of these photos is 6×6 square.

Okay, I think I’ve found a camera which is going to help me drain my bank account. Stay tune, I might shoot more of this bad boy in the near future.

Day trip to Ballarat

About a month ago during the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, me and a couple of mates ventured to the west; Ballarat Wildlife Park for a bit of a day trip. It was about one and half hour drive from Melbourne. For those who have never been to this park, it’s basically a small zoo which holds mostly Australian animals such as the famous Kangaroos, Koalas, Wombats, as well as Tasmanian Devils. You can even pet some of these animals, especially the Kangaroos because they are all set free in this park (check out the mischievous joey in one of the photos below).

Anyway, here are some of the photos to show what our day was like.

And then on the way back, we stopped by a beautiful barn yard with sheep and a horse. It was a private property, but Dessy was bravely enough to knock on their door and requested for permission for us to take photos of their sheep and horse. The owner’s reaction was ‘You guys must be really bored to want to take photos of our sheep’. They have the cutest, most active pup I’ve ever seen. Wish I could have one of those too someday.

After leaving the farm, my GPS took a detour to a very obscure small country road on our way back to Melbourne. Interestingly, the road became really foggy and we pulled over and started taking more photos. It was probably the highlight of the day for me for that trip.
