Here’s a continuation from the previous post on the portrait session at Lake Park. This entry will feature only Elaine, whom I think has very nice facial feature. She’s very nice to work with, and I enjoyed working with her the last time out.

The shots here are pretty straightforward and simple, as I wanted to keep things simple and easygoing, since we didn’t have the luxury of time. All the concepts came flowing in on the spot that day.

Well, you’ve seen the photos on top before in the previous entry, and I’ll leave you with the rest in my collection taken at the Lake Park the last time out. Do wait patiently as it takes a little bit longer to load all the photos from the shoot here, as I have 21 photos from the day.
Short note: I’m supposed to be in KL by now, probably going to Sg Wang today, hunting for camera gears.
I haven’t been able to update that frequent lately, in fact, I have only updated once in March. I’ve been feeling really tired at night of late.
While I am going through a semi-mini hiatus, you can check out the new product released in PMA’09 in Digital Photography Review’s site (http://www.dpreview.com/). One of the highlights are the new tilt-shift lenses from Canon, TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II and TS-E 17mm f/4L.
Here’s a brief preview on the features of these two tilt and shift lenses:
Key features of the TS-E 17mm f/4L and TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II include
Tilt and shift lenses compatible with all Canon EOS cameras
Ultra Wide 17mm / wide 24mm focal length, ideal for architecture and landscapes
High precision lens elements for low distortion and high resolution to the edge of the image
+/- 6.5° Tilt and +/-12mm Shift (TS-E 17mm f/4L) +/- 8.5° Tilt and ±12mm Shift (TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II)
Tilt and shift mechanism rotates +/-90° allowing shift in any direction
Tilt mechanism rotates +/-90° allowing tilt in any direction relative to the shift
Aspherical and UD lens elements minimise chromatic aberration
Sub-wavelength structure and super-spectra coatings minimise ghosting and flare
Circular aperture for creative, blurred highlights
TS-E 17mm f/4L has a floating internal focus mechanism delivers high image quality throughout focus range.

Ironically, the two photos of the Tilt and Shift lenses are taken with Olympus E-620. You can download the larger file from dpreview.com or here (TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II and TS-E 17mm f/4L), and see the EXIF for yourself.
And lastly, I’m posting a firework photo taken on Chap Goh May. I am not too sure if I have posted this before. LOL!
EXIF | Canon EOS 50D with EF 90-300mm f/4.5-5.6 | ISO 160 | f/6.3 | 1/160 sec | 0ev | Focal length at 300mm | Increased Exposure + Contrast Level | Adjusted Brightness Level
Attempted a bird shot late last year at Kuching Waterfront. I mounted my EF 90-300mm f/4.5-5.6 and I could conclude that I seriously need a better, sharper telelens. At 300mm, my lens is prone to blur, or shake. And the image is far from being sharp.
