Life Update 4# My first photography exhibition

Two weeks ago, I was invited to Offset Journal’s 16th year launch at MetroWest in Footscray. It was my first ever photography exhibition, so I did not know what to expect. Making the most out of the situation, I went all-out and printed off DIY business card and flyers to hand out. In retrospect, I…

Autumn Colours @ Melbourne

This blog is probably two months too late given it is winter now but nevertheless, I wanted to celebrate autumn with some photos of the beautiful season. Rather than write a whole heap (which is what I usually do), this week’s blog will be told through photos πŸ˜€ Maroondah Reservoir Earlier this year, I went…

Food Galore @Providence Cafe

He touched on 3 major components: lighting, composition,…

My first time shooting Portraiture

Having been into photography forΒ  8 years now, never have I tried shooting portraiture until yesterday.Β  I guess a main reason why I have never shot in this genre is because it takes much effort sourcing models for your photoshoots. Compared to other genres like landscape or still-life photography, all you need is your camera…

Autumn Colours @ Melbourne

Have you read my Springtime @ Melbourne & Summertime Happiness @ Melbourne posts? Well, I guess it is only fitting to dedicate one to Autumn too. Compared to Spring and Summer, I wouldn’t say Autumn is one of my favourite months. I mean, it’s good but it doesn’t make me go YIPPEE, IT’S AUTUMN <-…

Macro Photography

When I started out in photography, I knew nothing. I didn’t even know how to turn on a camera or change a lens. 7 years down the track, I still can’t say I know much but I am getting there. One thing I am happy about is, at least I learned how to take macro…

Springtime @ Melbourne

For the most part, I will be showcasing my road-trips around Melbourne, and doing some food reviews, but today I wanted to dedicate a post to my one of my favorite seasons of the year: Spring! I love the springtime because all the flowers begin to bloom. The street I live on is lined by…
