Pet Photography – “My Best Friend”

One of the key considerations of pet photography is how the animal interacts with its owner and the environment. Here are two examples of how a sweet natured dog devoted to its owner showed his attentiveness and keen need to be near him.

A vicious looking Cayman waiting very still in calm waters, keeping an eye out for an opportunity to have a bite.

(Taken with EOS 5D mark 3 with 300mm f2.8 with 1.4 teleconverter).

What happens when buffaloes get excited?

They react like all other animals do to stimulus! Did this collage just for a moment, made you think otherwise?


Travel Photography – Sri Lanka (Gallery)

SRILANKA085Bcover

One of the most pleasant aspects of travel is when you have no idea what to expect when travelling to a new destination, you find yourself in a place that has enchanting qualities and subjects truly worthy of photographing. Sri Lanka is not just a place for its renowned safaris but the country is an interesting place for landscape photographers. Do visit the SRI LANKA GALLERY HERE.

Travel Photography – PENANG (Gallery)

While I have been not posting on my photo blog for some months, I have been keeping busy with photography nonetheless. Ever in the pursuit of perfecting composition, skills and post processing to improve the quality of the images, I have travelled a few more places just this year alone to improve my travel photography style that includes landscape, people and street images.

Check out the new Penang Gallery here.

Animal Photography – Meerkats

IMG_5430Aweb

 

This lone lookout Meerkat was photographed with EOS7D using 300mm f2.8. Backlit by late morning sunlight. Shot at f2.8 to blur out the background.


Product Photography – Using Shallow Depth of Field

MOVAS2web

 

Using the model to hold up the watch but pushing him and the rest of the background into out of focus blur by shooting at f4 this image gave a simple sense of the watch being the center of attention in the image. Intended to create a masculine clenched fist to bring out the concept of a strong diver’s watch.

Product Photography – Bouquet of Roses


Landscape Panorama – Supertrees at Gardens By the Bay

 

 

 

These Supertrees are man made structures designed to be covered with foliage over time. Probably inspired by the set from AVATAR but very tastefully designed and constructed.

 

PHOTO NOTES: Taken with Canon EOS 5D3 with 23-105mm f4 L. Images stitched together to form a wide panorama effect.


Landscape Photography – Fields of Gold

 

 

 


Insect photography – The Atlas Moth Caterpillar

The Atlas Moth Caterpillar is considered to be the largest caterpillar known. It grows up to 5 inches in length before going into a pupae state. When it emerges, it becomes the largest known moth. This species shown here is resident in the region but quite rare.

PHOTO NOTES: EOS7D with 100mm f2.8.


Insect Macro-photography – Grasshopper

 

 

This very small grasshopper appeared to have just emerged from being hatched. Photographed without any wings but perfectly camouflaged in the bush.

PHOTO NOTES: Dairy Farm Nature Park – with EOS7D and 100mm f2.8 macro lens.


Insect Macro-photography – Cricket

 

More from Dairy Farm Nature Reserve.  This resident insect was found deep inside the forest reserve amongst the wild foliage.

 


Insect Macro-photography – Robberfly

 

 

 

 

This Robber Fly was photographed at the Dairy Farm Nature Park in Singapore. There are many variants and all sizes of Robber Flys and invariably all of them are predators of other insects. This colourful version is very small but totally unafraid of being photographed. Making it a very agreeable model for the camera.

PHOTO NOTES – taken with EOS 7D with 100mm f2.8 macro with 580EXII strobe. ISO400; f11 at 1/250sec.

After several months of being unable to find time to pursue my photography, today I had a nice lunch with a close friend at a new restaurant with wonderful natural lighting. Served here a wonderful set lunch French cuisine.

Food Photography – Food triptych at Pantry @ the Stables

 

 

This triptych was taken with EOS 5D mark 3 with 35mm f1.4 L lens. Using natural filtered light from a cloudy afternoon sky. Adjustments made are crop, saturation, light sharpening and resize. The more I use the 5D3 the more I enjoy using it. Somehow it seems to have improved the resolving power of the L lenses that I had not seen before.


Landscape photography – The Crescent Moon

The Crescent Moon

The Crescent Moon

 

Tonight’s crescent moon was bright but with intervals of thick clouds covering it up. It looked wonderful so I used my EOS 7D, 100-400mm L with 1.4 teleconverter – shot manual focus and manual mode. At f11, 1/60 sec. The image you see is cropped from original image at 100%. No enlargement digitally. Sharpened a tad in photoshop.

Nature Photography – Dairy Farm Nature Reserve Collage

Dairy Farm Nature Reserve

Dairy Farm Nature Reserve

Unlike the manicured parks found in many parts of Singapore, nature reserves are predominantly green areas where nature eco system is left alone without interference. Many of the reserve areas are dense jungle forest and this reserve is no different. Cool and humid after a heavy rainfall, it is a wonderful location for a walk with nature. One could either stay on the bitumen path or trek through very narrow mud trails. But one has to remember that these locations are home to predators such as snakes, spiders and other reptiles and amphibians. This collage is a collection of images taken from just one stroll there.
