Esplanade Outdoor Theatre in HDR

Esplanade Outdoor Theatre in HDR. Just a little experiment I did yesterday while taking my day off and idling around Marina Bay. Shot the scene with exposure bracketing and used Photoshop to merge into an HDR photo.

Night Portraiture - Group

As an amateur, wannabe professional photographer, I never appreciated the importance of a good tripod, well at least until now. For the longest time, I loved to shoot night photos hand-held as much as I could (actually I still do). But now I've realized the beauty of having a good portable tripod to carry around every time I will shoot. It allows shooting with a deeper depth of field and longer exposure times, of course, you still need the cooperation of the people you are taking photos of - they need to be still until the end of the shot. I'm also beginning to appreciate the importance of using the flash - but not too much of course. I always disliked having to use the flash as it washes out the color of your subject. However, one shot that I'm really proud of, as of the moment is the photo of my friends jumping in front of a huge Christmas tree at VivoCity, Harbourfront (below). I used to think this wasn't possible with an ordinary kit lens mounted on a D80, the shutter just wouldn't be fast enough. It's really not possible, at least not without the aid of a tripod and flash. Okay it's not the best shot of people jumping but at least I got it on the first try. Can't wait to go out and shoot more night photos. For more photos, visit VEC1.

Attempt on Interiors

My attempt on shooting interiors using a 50mm prime lens. It was very challenging because the space was limited and I had to shift and adjust my position most of the time to frame the shot properly. I really gave it a warm look to give a summer feel to it.
Location: Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort, Johore Bahru, Malaysia.
