My days

Hi people. 

I'm in India, obviously, because I'm posting pics of Singapore. 

These are excerpts from my new photo series "Singapore Black and White". 

The last pic is my signature haunting B&W photo with grains.
I used to shoot T-MAX3200 film and push 2-stops.

What, that makes no sense? Cuz it's digital now, yes i get it.
It means its a lost technology and people don't do it no more.

But back in the days, you had to T-Max 3200 and push 2-stops to get this grain.
and the contrast...

China light

I'm posting something I did .


Gotta watch my light.

The dude on the right "left". 
He also had to leave the frame too. 

While in Singapore, my dude Daniel from Camera Workshop sold me some 'china light'.

What is a "China-Light"?
You may wonder. 

China light is a lighting equipment that is obviously manufactured in China. 
I've been using china-light for years. 

China light is not like Profoto lights or Nissin strobes. 
It is made in China. Therefore, allegedly, there are shortfalls (according to my China bros). 

"Of course China product!"
Daniel, obviously being Chinese tells me frankly. 
"It's not like Japanese product or American made light" he explains. 
Consistency is off, some parts are way too cheaply made and some screws may be missing 

"But it beats the price"

And, it comes with perks. 

The up-and-coming Chinese products are frankly quite good. 
It will use innovative system sometimes that other big corporations won't dare touch. 
Unique forms and out-of-the-blue adaptiveness brings you multiple surprises. 


it beats the price. 

Price matters when you can cut the budget to as low as half

and so, I've been a fan of China-lights. ;DDD

The BW story of Singapore

So here it is...

The land of riches and poor. Sorry. Sin and poor.

Link above takes you to web browser version of my new series "Singapore Black and White".
It is a story I've shot.

Yes, you straight up see trashes on floor.
It's not like you see it on the main street...
Gotta go where alcohol is restricted. Where protest once happened.

Sometimes it's just tap obvious.
Don't call it false advertisement... TV ain't wrong. It's just biased.
Media will fool you, but it's also your fault taking in only what you see.

You can download the book too. ;))

my gear

I rented 5DSR.

Before I left Spore, that is. 


I'm pretty much that DIY kind'a guy when it comes to shooting. 
This channel and that channel didn't match and it takes some force to put things together. 
Gaff tape is magic.

while i left spore

I am retouching few shots I have not finished...

India is great. 

I am wiping my ass with my own hand. 
It is precious to know that we do not need toilet paper. 

It is important to deal with your own shit. 

I have much to learn and gain from India. 

Good god I left eff'in Singapore.

when ur stuck

Creative Cloud service relies on internet.
You can get 'stuck'.
This happens a lot in the industry, so bare and listen.

Once in a lifetime, you will be stuck in the middle of nowhere for a long time.
If your software license expires, You're Fucked.

you need something for professionals.

Something stand-alone.

This link is how to "buy" Lightroom 6.
Lightroom 6 doesn't kinda exist, because it's now Lightroom CC.
