The Second Chapter


I have shifted.
Here's my new Flickr.

I'm currently using a Canon EOS 450D with the 18-55mm IS Kit Lens.

My old Canon Powershot A430 is dead (again). It was this little camera that allows me to explore the basics of photography. Slowly, the passion grows. And now, it's time to move on....

The Lion City

The following photos were taken during my recent trip to Singapore. I went there with my sister, Carol and friend Jason who owns an Olympus DSLR.

And now I've realized that I NEED A DSLR if I'm ever going to capture better photos T.T
Owh well....

Bird Paradise

It's been a very, VERY long while since I've managed to capture a SERIES of good shots with my camera. The last time I had was during the Inter-Campus Gathering in Penang, October 2007. Since then, I was kinda frustrated. My photos did not live up to my personal expectations. I somehow felt that my creativity and skills were gone. At one point, I even considered quitting this hobby of mine. Owh yeah, that's the "emo" me. Huhu...

Anyway, I've recently visited the KL Bird Park. This time around, I am very happy and satisfied with the result. After such a long wait, I felt that my "inspiration" is finally back! :)

Owh, by the way, this is an example of how a compact camera can be more versatile than a DSLR : Most of the birds were kept in steel cages. A normal DSLR lens would never fit in through the gaps! Huhu.. I did take some risks though; my camera was almost attacked twice!

Aightz , here are the photos. Feel free to drop by your comments ya :)

ICG : Penang

Hai guys! I'm back from a long hiatus!

The reason I haven't been updating this blog is because of my busy schedule in campus. Compared to last semester, I have less opportunities to play with my camera. And even if I've managed to get some good shots, I don't have the mood to update here. It's the post-hectic syndrome in campus, hehe.

Quick update for this semester: My camera lens was mysteriously damaged during the Langkawi Field Trip in September. I use the term "mysteriously" because I have no freaking idea how it happened. As far as I'm concerned, I don't remember dropping the camera on water or hard surface. Anyway, I was left with 2 options:
a) Get a new compact camera, semi-D or Nikon DSLR
b) Get the old one repaired

In the end, I ended up with the latter option. I've decided that my maximum budget would be RM200 for repair, or else I'll get a new one. And guess what? When the quotation was released, I was informed that it would cost me tepat-tepat Rm200. Hoho...

I would love to have my own semi-D/DSLR, but at this point of time, I'm not sure whether I'm willing to invest rm2000+ on a camera, while I can use the money to buy lots of other stuffs. Like PsP, new handphone, new dekstop PC, graphic card, branded shoes, shirts, jeans and the list goes on...

So yeah. I do have passion for photography, but I'm still an amateur hobbyist. I'm not ready to spend such a large sum of money on it yet. Perhaps once I've gotten a job, hehehe.

Besides that, I'm happy with the pictures produced by my Canon Powershot A430. Well, at least for a basic compact camera. Especially with the super macro mode. Even Mellissa agrees with me on this! *grins* Yes, there are certain limitations. I can't manually adjust the aperture and focus point. Well, I'll just have treat that as a challenge to my photographing skills :P

Anyway, my first semester in Undergrade Years is officially over! So here, I'm posting up the pictures taken at the Inter-Campus Gathering (ICG) held in Bukit Mertajam, Penang. Enjoy.
