The Feeling Remains But I Moved On

Short Talk: Having continual assessment tomorrow for Economics.

For the past few days, I kept thinking of what I should have done to improve my shots in the Canon Photomarathon. I read something from Joe McNally's book in which he mentioned: "When you have a wide angle lens in your hands, feel free to go closer because the outcome can be beyond our expectations." He did mention that we should just stick to one angle in photography but try to experiment with different angles.

I read that way before the competition and I didn't practise it. The "dream" shot would be dramatic if I would just go closer to the subject like let's say an arm's length from his feet. I learnt alot from this mistake of mine and it really shows that 1 metre was the margin of error in that shot. I was 1 metre away from winning the grand prize. But oh well, life goes on.

This was my lab report for today in school:


That my friend, is called perspective drawing. And that took me 2 hours to draw. ARghhH..hH..h..HHh.h...

On a lighter note, I made a beauty dish out of aluminium foil and plastic bottle. Tested it the beauty dish out and found out that it's time to update my gear list. :)

The bokeh brothers.
Both the 85mm f/1.8 and 50mm f/1.8 arranged side by side.

And a personal portrait of the 85.. f/1.8.
The 85 Prime

More to come. Stay tuned!
