Zoo Singapore

Yesterday I went to the Zoo Singapore try to take some nice photos from there. It is really a good experience, besides take photos I also saw a lot cute animal there.

Recently the weather really hot, it is very tiring to walk under the sun. Anyway, I still complete my mission successfully. Let share some nice photo with you.

Besides take the fauna photo, I also had my first attempt to take the flora photo in Zoo Singapore. The orchid is really colorful, I really attracted by it, that's why I choose them as my model.

Experience in Jurong Bird Park

Today I went to the Jurong Bird Park, there are a lot models over there and they are suffice to kill the capacity of my camera's memory. This trip I had tried the Manual Focus because most of them are confined inside the cage, it is hard to use Auto Focus to aim them.

Since they are always moving during capturing, so I had manipulated some basic shutter speed and aperture skill.

Try to take a panning photo but can't really feel it.

Take with different shutter speed

Through this trip, I saw a lot colorful birds meanwhile most of them are on verge of extinction due by pollution and disafforestation. To ensure our next generation still able to see these species in future, I think we have to bear the responsibility to protect them.

Attempt Nightshot in Merlion Park

This is my first time to attempt the nightshot with DSLR, it is really a good experience but disappointed me. Before that I very confident with my D90, I thought I will capture some nice photos but it is not. This doesn't means the D90 unable to capture nice nightshot, I disappointed because I not bring along his partner "Tripod" and my photography skill is not ripe enough. Hand shaking really a death-wound for nightshot, luckily it can complement by the tripod. I did a lot unflattering mistake in these photos, anyway this night snapshot really a good experience to me.

Night view of the city is really beautiful and attracting, unfortunately my tripod was not with me on that moment, regret not bring along my tripod during I back to Singapore. But I wont give up easily, I will bring along the tripod next attempt and I must gain more experience to improve my skill. Hope I able to capture better nightshot next time.

My first DSLR Nikon D90

Finally I had deal my first DSLR in FOTOKEM Subang Parade on last week. It is really excited me due to its performance really satisfy me hence I very sure I will not regret to bought it. It is definitely suitable for entry level as well as those experienced photographer, who plan to upgrade his camera.
My lovely girlfriend at her brother's workshop.

My first snap in Oldtown, "Nasi Lemak" by using Nikon D90

Below are some photos I took during the first night and the second day I bought this camera. The first four pictures was captured during and after the celebration dinner in Yaki Yaki restaurant. I tried the snapshot with flash (Top) and without flash (Bottom).

I have a personal preference which I like nightshot, previously I always failed to do it with my compact camera, finally I can do it with this DSLR camera. I believe most of the DSLR also able to do it, but one thing it is make me wonder and attract me is, this camera able to take a nightshot snap during I driving around the KLCC (It is capture by my lovely girlfriend with auto mode). As per what I know, most of the photo will become terrible blur if the hand is vibrating or the target is moving when capturing, like what happened in the first nightshot, the cars is blur due to moving, it is really make me wonder and think how possible to make it. Hope I can find the reason after I familiarize all the operation.

These pictures was took in my warmly house and the target is my newborn nephew named Kenzie. He is just 2 months old, normally the camera's flash light will harm to those the newborn's eyes and must avoid it. It is really a obstacle for those compact camera with low shutter speed. So these photos were I capture without any flash light, Kenzie looks cute in the pictures.

Through these photos I can realise the differs between the compact camera and the DSLR, it is really amazing. Now I can understand why so many photographer willing to spend so much just for capture a single picture. I must improve my skill so I can take more pictures to attach and share in my blog. Gambateh!!!
