While I wrap up a couple of event photos, here are some others that I took in recent weeks to submit to an informal monthly company photo competition. Nothing fancy and no prizes at stake, just a chance to further hone my photographic technique and vision and have fun in the process. Hope you like the images. Constructive comments and critique are always welcome. 🙂
Taking the Plunge
Really wanted to include a skateboard in this picture to “complete” the feel of the jump. From the lack of a skateboard in the photo, you can immediately tell that I need to start making younger friends. Very much younger.
I got Merv jumping and jumping for this photo till his ankle was sprained for the next month or two. However, after looking at the photo, all the effort was worth it (though I’m positive Merv will disagree). 😛
I can’t recall when the last time I saw such dramatic cloud patterns in Singapore was, considering the atmospheric pollution and high humidity. Nonetheless, I woke up early one Saturday morning to see this outside my bedroom window, bathed in the most wonderful golden light. It turned out to be a beautiful day.
A Transient Place
We spend a third of our lives sleeping, but yet there is that lingering feeling that the bed is our most underutilized piece of furniture. It is a place where we alternate between consciousness and dreams. It is a place where we transit from one day to another.
Note: The shape of the shadows were inspired by the movie poster of The Usual Suspects. Great movie I heard, though I must admit I haven’t watched it. 🙂
Finally, here’s a recent favourite of mine that was taken inside an abandoned building somewhere at Dempsey.
Dancing in an Abandoned House
Apart from being a freelance model, Lynnie (above) provides really good makeup services. I’ve only just started working with her on some shoots, but she brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to a photo session and even contributes posing tips here and there! 😀
WARNING *shameless plug* If you’re interested in taking some makeover/portrait photos, do feel free to drop me a note! I currently offer very reasonable rates and am willing to consider doing TFCDs* for guys/gals/kids/babies who possess an X-factor that I would love to have in my portfolio. 🙂
*Trade for CDs – a collaborative process between a photographer and a talent (who contributes the time to model in exchange for photos) rather than a commercially driven one.
