Flash mobs are not uncommon in big cities. They are even less so at the busiest parts of these cities. However, I did not expect to encounter one when I took a brief walk along Orchard Road.
I have switched to a minimalistic theme for this blog. This change has been planned for a while and the switch was finally completed last week.
Teaching others improves your photography because you actually learn in the process. When you teach, you discover how well you know a particular subject and, more importantly, the areas where your knowledge is lacking.
I took my first photo walk in 2013 on the first weekend of the year to kick off 2013 with a bang. This is the first time I am shooting on the street since my last walk in late September.
A review of what I have accomplished and experienced in the past year.
There some days when you just feel disconnected from photography. I have found a few tricks to reset myself to get into the groove. But there are times when I know that it will be an unproductive day.
A fashion runway is not a common sight along busy Orchard Road. I believe the event was held by the mall, Wisma Atria, to mark the completion of renovation works on the exterior of the building.
This is my fourth attempt at NaNoWriMo. I failed last year. I hope to win this year.
Instead of my usual photo walk in Orchard, I decided to shoot in Little India on a Sunday. My cousin Eugene came along as well.
Baby Rui Ying had her first month bash in June. It is a Chinese tradition to hold a celebration when a baby is one month old.
My recent Orchard Road street photography sessions were done with just the Leica M8. I still have a backlog of photos that I want to publish here.
Fujifilm X100 has been out followed me wherever I went. But I usually bring it along with my DSLR when I do street photography. I dropped my habit of carrying at least two focal lengths with me when I shoot.
Street fashion and publicity stunts are just some of the interesting sights along Orchard Road. While it might be lacking compared to some other cities, it is certainly the busiest place in Singapore on over the weekends.
I’m starting to use a shorter focal length when I shoot on the streets. This lightens my gear and it also helps me to improve as a photographer.
If you want a taste of Singapore street fashion, Orchard Road on a weekend is a good place to start. You will come across a myriad of styles being worn by the people walking along the road.
There was a dog adoption drive in town sponsored by Subaru and LostPaws. The volunteers from LostPaws were encouraging the public to adopt a pet instead of buying one, and educating them about responsible pet ownership.
Whenever I shoot in Orchard Road on a weekend, I’ll encounter publicity stunts by various companies to promote their product or services.
I’ve been spending my weekends shooting along Orchard Road in Singapore. This is to force myself to devote three to four hours a week to practice my street photography.
