April 9, 2014 Leave a comment

I was tasked to cover this event/seminar assignment for a corporate client in Singapore. Here are some of the images capture on that day. Unlike wedding, i wanted to capture the important moments of various people having interaction, exchange of business cards, speaker giving talk, reaction from the audience, or even a formal group picture if needed.

It is the goal Capture Asia Photography wants to submit highest standard of images to the client.

Drafting pictures of Gardens by the Bay

January 28, 2014 1 comment

My goal is to capture beautiful cityscape picture of Gardens by the Bay. Is not aim to take part in future photo competition or show everyone how good i am. Is more important to share my image experience of what i see. Is also very important to polish my visionary, pushing my creative level.

Landscape photography require a lot of time and patience. Am not an utmost expert in this field. Anyone can easily shoot a decent landscape picture if the weather is welcoming. But the respect must be given to photographer who spend an enormous amount of time to capture that final captivating image. So i put myself in the shoe of a landscape photographer, visiting the place several times, or years to get that final shot. Patience and passion plays a big part of success.

Below is a series of images i capture over several days during evening time. I particularly choose this timing is because i wanted to capture the magic hour moment, where the transformation is almost magical and amazing. It only happens for a few minutes, hence, such moment is very precious.

The above images are some of my favorite, but is not the final picture representation.

For more pictures you can check out my Facebook page to see more.

Hope you like it.

Thaipusam in Singapore 2014 (Actual)

January 21, 2014 Leave a comment

Am glad to be able to wake up the early morning and make my way to Serangoon Road to document the festival.

This year i approach my subject in a more subtle way, i try to stay invisible so i can observe and capture the type of image i want. I try to be less graphic too. As most people will naturally be put off by the poking of sharp steel rods and hooks into the flesh. Still prefer my images in colors, it show the vibrance and good spirit of the festival, as if my viewers are there watching it. Black and white can be quite intrusive if the post-processing is done badly, people might interpret it wrongly if viewing in the least artistic point of view.

Pictures to share from the witness of Thaipusam festival in Singapore.

Thaipusam in Singapore 2014

January 16, 2014 2 comments

This year Thaipusam festival falls on 17 Jan. In case you are unclear what it is. It is a symbolic Hindu event celebrated by the Tamil community in Singapore. It is an annual procession by Hindu devotees seeking blessings, fulfilling vows and offering thanks. Public can witness the event starting at Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple along Serangoon Road to Sri Thendayuthapani Temple on Tank Road. The festival is a visual spectacle and it often brings traffic in the city centre to a standstill, with a colourful procession full of chanting and dizzying rhythms of Indian drums.

I documented the Thaipusam Festival back in 2011. It was my first trip to witness the festival, and i would say it was amazing.
