So much has happened in my life lately that I hardly find any time to sit down in front of my computer at all. I have so many things to share and tell you all, and some photographs to post up here. I shall slow down my pace a little and allow myself to breathe.
Change of Work Environment
There have been some major changes in my life, both career and non-working life. I am a full time site engineer now, which means by the end of November you would not be able to tell the difference between Mr Robin Wong and Mr. Suresh Prakahsima. I dare not say the adjustment from a full time in house design engineer working at the comfort of an air-conditioned office dealing with computers whole day long, to a site engineer under evil Malaysian sun was smooth going. I do see the benefits and advantages of being at site. Lets just say it is too soon to say anything now, and let me dive in a little further to make any useful comments. Nonetheless, the changes at work have been exciting, and refreshing at the same time.
Speaking at Olympus E-System User Gathering
About a week ago, I was invited my Olympus Malaysia to give a talk on my experience with the E-5 during the official user gathering for E-system users. I have not done public speaking for such a long time now, and being in the engineering world did not help my speaking/communication skills much at all. I shared my user-experience with the audience, and the photographs I used for the presentation were all shown on my blog entries previously, pertaining to the E-5 user reviews. There were great food (buffet style), awesome people mostly using Olympus E-system as well, and some Olympus E-5 units circulating around with a set of different lenses to try-out. In addition to that, it was my first time seeing my own work being printed out large. I have not printed anything more than 8R before, so this moment was definitely something I will look back again and again.
The two large prints at the right of the photo (a dragonfly and a butterfly) were mine !!
Future Photography Project
I am getting myself involved in more and more photography projects. I have had the privilege to know some very admirable local talents, and it is incredible having the opportunity to shoot alongside them, and do some projects together. All things are still at preliminary stage at the moment, but I am getting thrilled already, because after all this time, I am seeing myself taking the bold step to move ahead, and move upward. It is time to push myself further, and really immerse myself in this photography world. If I can do something with my photography for the world, I will do it.
I know this entry seems a little incoherent, and to a certain degree: random. I have not had my usual shutter therapy sessions as well, hence I woke up a little grumpier than usual Monday morning.
Yesterday, I while having lunch with friends at Burger King, I saw some teenagers fiddling around, giggling merrily with a possibly Canon 500D (or anything similar) in hand. I leave you with one question:
Should Kids Use DSLR? Why, or Why Not?
