Re-exploring the Southern Ridges with the Instax Square SQ6!

Hey everyone!

One of our first hikes together as Damianwithsandra was along the Southern Ridges, a sprawling 10 kilometre stretch through the heart of Singapore, starting from Harbourfront and ending at Kent Ridge! In our first attempt, we covered the first few kilometres, and even documented our adventure in one of the earliest posts on our website!

Hanging out with the Animals @ the Singapore Zoo!

Hey everyone!

This week we revisit a favourite tourist location in Singapore, but one which we locals love to enjoy too: the Singapore Zoo! In our younger days, visiting the Zoo was a highlight, as we learnt more about the different animals that existed! This time, we were back as adults, but ready to be youthful learners of the Animal Kingdom!

Low Lights at iLight @ Marina Bay 2018!

Hey everyone!

We took some time out of our busy schedule to gander around the Central Business District to visit the yearly iLight (@ Marina Bay) Festival! A well-received light art festival occurring in March each year, it is no surprise that the CBD area was bustling with visitors once again! Keen to capture memories like last year’s edition, we were excited to use our cameras once again and test our steady hands to manage the low-lights setting!

Year of the Dog – Chinatown in 35mm!

Hey everyone!

Happy Chinese New Year to our readers! Every year we dedicate a post to the celebration of a brand new year in the Chinese calendar, and this year is no different! Once again, we traveled to the heart of Chinese tradition in Singapore: Chinatown! This time, we kept things simple and used a Canon EOS 55, a relatively modern 35mm film camera (with auto-focus and auto-exposure settings) with a 50mm f/1.4 STM lens and Kodak ColourPlus 200 film.

Capturing Flora and Fauna @ Singapore Botanic Gardens!

Hi everyone,

To usher in the new year, we decided to go to the Singapore Botanic Gardens to see what we could capture at Singapore’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site! We armed ourselves with a number of cameras, including the Fujifilm X-T10 (with the Kamlan f/1.1, 50mm lens), a modified Land 180 Camera (with a Lomo’Instant Wide back) and a Seagull TLR (for 120 film)! Although it may seem a little overwhelming to possess so many cameras for a single trip, the key is to use the right camera for the right occasion!

Happy Holidays And Carnival Fun!

Hey everyone,

2017 is quickly coming to a close, and with Christmas and New Year’s coming and going, we treated ourselves to a fun night out at the Marina Bay Carnival, ongoing until 1 April 2018! We specifically decided to go in the night as we wanted to capture some long-exposure shots, so we brought out the trusty tripod and our Fujifilm X-T10 and the Polaroid SLR 680SE!

Featuring Damian’s Trip to Japan: Lessons from Carrying 35mm Film

Hi everyone,

So Damian recently travelled to Japan for a family trip, and took the opportunity to use take some (hopefully) memorable shots with a 35mm film camera! The camera of choice was the Pentax MX, coupled with a f/2 50mm manual focus lens! Wary about the supposed woes of carrying film through X-ray scanners, he had read up about some suggested tips, including carrying the film onto the plane (instead of checking them in), getting the film hand-checked (where possible) and bringing low ISO-speed film.
