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!
This week we decided to share some of our shots taken with our Mamiya Universal Press (“MUP”)! You may have seen this amazing camera (with interchangeable lens and film backs) being mentioned in our previous entries here, and so this time we decided to dedicate a post to our recent Polaroid shots with the MUP!
This week, we found out that the Asian Civilisation Museum was opening its doors for free this past weekend (3-4 September), so with a piqued interest about the exhibitions being held there, we decided to check it out, along with our camera companions!
This week we decided to kick back, relax and share with our readers some of our favourite photos taken with our Polaroid Spectra ImagePro! You may have seen some of them on our Instagram, but here, we also detail the work that goes into these Polaroids!
So we discovered that the British Museum in London was showcasing some of the oldest exhibits and artefacts from all over the world (hence, the titular name “Treasures of the World”) at the oldest museum in Singapore, the National Museum (how apt)!
In this entry, we decided to showcase some of our favourite Polaroids taken this week!
As we are focusing on using our Polaroid Sonar SX-70 this week, we have tried a variety of resources and techniques. For starters, we experimented with black & white and 600 film from Impossible Project (although the latter film requires a Neutral Density Filter as it is more sensitive to light for our poor old Sonar SX-70); tried some long exposures; tried some filters, as well as utilising the MiNT Lens Kit! Just to name a few 🙂
The former Supreme Court and City Hall of Singapore was recently redesigned as the National Gallery, now housing art exhibitions by South East Asian artists. With its enthralling history as the landmark for the judiciary and government, the National Gallery is a place worth visiting for sure!
