Test Shots: Mamiya Universal Press with Various Mamiya-Sekor Lens (Instax Wide Format)

Hey everyone!

This week we decided to share some of our shots taken with our Mamiya Universal Press (“MUP”)! This amazing medium-format rangefinder camera (with interchangeable lens and film backs) have been mentioned numerous times in our previous entries visiting the iconic Rochor Centre, reviewing the original MUP when we first got it, and at the National Day Parade 2017 (Rehearsal)! This time, we decided to dedicate a post to our test shots, using a modified electronic Instax Wide back!

Commemorating Singapore with the Jubilee Walk

Hey everyone!

If you are a tourist or a local who wish to explore the sights and sounds which make Singapore Singapore (and you also wish to engage in quite  a lot of walking!) then we would highly recommend the Jubilee Walk! The government-initiated trail consists of over 20 landmarks, spanning 8 kilometres in the heart of downtown Singapore. It took over 3 days for us to complete (owing to the fact that the weather has been pretty unpredictable recently), and having done so we decided to share our images captured at these iconic landmarks.

Yayoi Kusama – A National Gallery Feature

Hey everyone!

We decided to share this special mid-week entry (which we acknowledge has been coming for some time from our last entry – we do apologise for being busy!) as this special gallery feature is ending in a few days time. The special Gallery Feature by Yayoi Kusama at the National Gallery has been going on since early June, and is set to wrap up on 3rd September 2017. We decided to share our experiences visiting the gallery, learning and appreciating art through the eyes of Yayoi Kusama!

Happy 52nd Birthday, Singapore!

Hey everyone!

Our yearly tradition on our website is to wish our amazing country a Happy Birthday and to share about the National Day Parade and the famous fireworks display at the end! We were blessed with tickets to watch the National Day Parade (Preview), and brought along our  camera gear to capture the parade and the sights that accompanied it. Furthermore, we were with many, many people as we caught and captured the impeccable fireworks display on National Day itself!

Chasing Sunsets at Lower Peirce Reservoir!

Hey everyone!

We’re sure that everyone appreciates a beautiful, colour-streaked sunset that inspires optimism and admiration for nature! That being said, in Singapore we have quite a number of iconic spots to catch sunsets, and there is really no better place than at Lower Peirce Reservoir! We had previously spoke about our adventures along the Lower Peirce Reservoir Trail, which links up to MacRitchie Reservoir, and this large nature reserve is well-known and populated with hikers, joggers and casual visitors during the weekends.

Of course, it is sometimes hard to predict the weather (even with apps on our smartphones), and in our visits to capture the sunset at Lower Peirce Reservoir, we had differing experiences and outcomes with our photos…

Holga Week 2017! – Holga with Instax Mini Colour Film

Hey everyone!

This week is Holga Week, and in tribute to the iconic ‘toy’ street camera, we have dedicated this week’s entry to our experiences with the Holga camera! Previously, we shared about Holga’s history and encounter with the Holga 120 GCFN; this time, we used the specially-developed instant film back for the Holga camera!

The Holga camera used to capture shots for Holga Week 2017 is the Holga 120GTLR! This model allows the user to look downwards through a separate viewfinder (as a homage to older twin-lens reflex cameras), but retains the unique noisy vignetting that the Holga camera is well known for. Interestingly, the “viewfinder” does not actually focus the lens which exposes the image. However, the viewfinder turned out to be pretty useful as it helped us to compose our image!

Check out our daily snaps and stories below:
