So where would I take my mum? Harder to come up with that I thought as I’m sure Tesco doesn’t count (especially if she pays for the groceries!) Well, it just so happens that being a Chinese lad, I get to frequent Chinatown and can treat my mum to a nice dim sum lunch.
Of course it’s not just dim sum and roast duck that you can get in Chinatown! There are lots of bakeries with loads of different Asian snacks and yummy pandan cakes! It’s a shame that all the gift shops aren’t as good as when I was a young’un where you could buy lots of soft toys and, most importantly, shiny Dragon Ball cards! (Though I don’t think my mum could care less!)
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
Go out for a bike ride, pull off somewhere and take a photo of yourself and the scenery around you. Enjoy a respite from the hustle and bustle of the vibrant city with your bike and capture all the delightful details of the adventure.
The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white. To write this tribute, I used my Holga to take some pictures of amateur sport activities around my city. Take a look after the jump.
My city of Como hosts a series of nice events this season. One of these is Creativity Day, where the upper schools show their project at the main square of the pedestrian area. This year, my students have assembled a Lomography Konstruktor at the main square of the city! Take a look after the jump!
