Food and Poison


So in my previous entries there was a mention about a dear friend and photog Fishtan who came for a brief visit from Penang. He brought with him his latest addition to his set of weapons: an Ultra Wide Angle lens, something that I would only dream and drool about at the moment considering my financial situation. Nevertheless, he has just got the lens, hence a shooting-spree session was in place, where more appropriate than the strange land of Kuala Lumpur itself right?

JUST ME

KLCC AT WIDE ANGLE (10mm FFS !!!!)

Photo Note: The above two pictures were taken by Yiaw Wei (Fishtan) with UWA lens. Go to his blog to check out his full entry with more beautiful shots produced by that new lens of his.

Ultra Wide Angle basically covers more than what the eye can perceive, and this can be advantageous in filling in more horizons and verticals to the photo-frame where normal lenses cannot fit in. In addition to that, the lens can be used for a wide array of creative shooting styles, if the photographer truly realizes the lens' true potential and takes advantage of it. Taking pictures in such a wide angle, it opens up a whole new perspective, and boy, stretching the limits from every corner seemed like a really incredible way to present a photo !! I was immensely impressed by the pictures taken by Fishtan.

It has been a while since I did proper photos on food, and this can be considered a dramatic change in my blogging style. Once upon a time I was labeled by some as a food-photographer. Strangely I did not willingly accept that label, though I do admit I blog plentiful about food for that stretch period of time. I enjoy eating, and I share my joy of feasting with you guys through this humble blog. Some love me for the food pictures, some hate me. Obviously I have lessen food pictures, for one obvious reason. I seldom eat out these days, hence no food pictures for you guys !! But I still love food.

We went to the usuals, McD, Nando's, and some random food outlets. Oh, we also went to Hartz Chicken Buffet, which certainly brought back a lot of memories.

MACRO ON FRIES

BLOWN UP COIN

Photo note: The photo of the coin was taken by Yiaw Wei himself, with my macro lens of course. At F3.5, the DOF is extremely thin.

Since Yiaw Wei poisoned me with his UWA, I retaliated with my new (but not so new) macro lens. It was stunning what a 1:1 magnification factor could produce, you can see fine details that naked eye would fail to notice. Macro lens was also in his list of add-ons, and it is only a matter of time before he grabs one for himself. So all I need to do is to keep taking macro shots and posting them up here often. That should do the trick to get himself a macro.

Ah, the joy of fresh poison. Nothing beats the excitement on expressing your thoughts about photography and cameras and lenses with someone who shares the similar passion with you. Fishtan is the guy I have learned a great deal about DSLR from, and I consider himself much more technically knowledgeable about cameras than I am.

Will someone please throw a 9-18mm lens to me please?? Please??
