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!

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!

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.

It’s Polaroid Week again; this time, it’s occurring during the Autumn season! Other than portraying our usual snapshots, we thought of showing our readers not only the photos taken (& shared) during Polaroid Week, but also the “behind-the-scenes” moments! This week we trotted around Chinatown in Singapore (as we have done so on many occasions before!)

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 visited a popular hotspot for our Muslim friends in Singapore, where the festivity carries on into the late hours of the night: the Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar!
The Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar is opened for the whole period of Ramadan (26th May to 24th June this year); it comes alive especially at night, when the Muslims break fast and have their iftar (evening meal). The pasar malam (meaning night market) is packed to the brim with food and drink stalls and other shops selling Hari Raya- related items (over a thousand stalls!), and this gave us a chance to immerse in this festive celebration. Around the pasar malam, there were beautiful light decorations and banners, and so this gave us the chance to revisit our light photography skills and explore Geylang Serai! To this end, we brought along the SLR 680SE and the Petzval Lens to use with our Fujifilm XT-10!
