  8. Does shooting with film really slow you down?

    17 Jan 2017

    Beo Crescent, Singapore 2016 One of the most common phrases I heard from people using film is that it slows you down when photographing on the street. But is it true? In this digital era, technologies have changed the way we capture images with our camera. Gone were the days…

    07 Jan 2017

    Summer in Melbourne 2017 It has been a week since I deactivated my Facebook account, so how did it go? Well, it’s still too early to tell, but I reckon it should go well. I have also deleted the Facebook app on my phone so I wouldn’t click on it…


  12. Hello 2017

    01 Jan 2017

    Jurong West, Singapore 2016 Like many said, 2016 wasn’t a good year, probably too much negativity happened around us. But I’m not going to judge 2016 by what happened, we all know we can’t control that part of life. I reckon what we didn’t do in 2016 should be a…


  13. Goodbye Singapore 2016

    29 Dec 2016

    Jurong West, Singapore 2016 Time flies, ten days trip in Singapore is coming to an end. It’s been an emotional trip for me this time round. No huge gathering, no food hunting and no intensive photo walk. I spent the majority of my days at the west end of Singapore,…

    09 Nov 2016

    Olympus OM10 A new phase of my photography journey is underway! Nah, I’m not buying a Leica camera, I’m moving backward in technology, that is film photography.

  17. The Waiting Game

    17 Oct 2016

    Etihad Stadium, Melbourne 2015 “How long do you wait at a particular spot for a shot?” One of the questions I got asked a lot. There is no direct answer to this issue, and it also depends on how hungry you are to get the shot. But there are a…

    05 Oct 2016

    Read Bridge II, Singapore 2016 How many time have you planned for a photo walk only to cancelled it due to inclement weather? One of those days that you just want to snuggle under the blanket and forget about everything. “It’s cloudy, and the light won’t be great” or “What’s…

    27 Sep 2016

    South Melbourne, 2016 No, this is not a blog post about my favourite football club, Liverpool FC, it’s just how I like my photo walks to be at times. Many had asked me about my preference, in a group or alone; I always answered the latter. I could spend the…


  21. Less Is More

    12 Sep 2016

    Melbourne, Australia 2015 The lesser you carry, the further you walk When I first started street photography, all I need was my iPhone and Power Bank to charge up my phone. There was no additional lens, a second camera body or a tripod, and travelling light was essential. The lesser…

    27 Aug 2016

    Melbourne, Australia 2016 While not all great photographers have a photography degree, going to a photography school isn’t a bad choice.

  23. A Little Unknown

    25 Aug 2016

    There is something about myself that most of my friends don’t know. I had a particular skill set that wasn’t useful at this point of my life, something I picked up when I was much younger. It was during the trip back to Singapore when I visited Rochor Centre, that…

  25. An Accidental Series

    19 May 2016

    While browsing through the MOO website after receiving an email from Head On Photo Festival that all finalists will received a credit from the printing company, I decided I probably need to change my current “boring” business cards from Vista.
