Water Droplets Again, but better

I previously did attempt to capture water droplets with a compact camera and this was the result.. (taken by a Pentax Optio A30)

But thanks to my new Canon 500D (Rebel T1i) and extra equipment from my brother, I was able to make it look better..

I'm hoping to make better photographs soon, but also at the same time, do well in my studies.. Wish me luck..

Cheers.. =)

Stumble Upon

Hey! It's been awhile since I blogged, but I'm still active on Facebook and Twitter, posting photographs and updates. Anyway, I am here to inform you guys that I have just received my DSLR! =D It was actually bought by my brother in USA so he got it cheaper there. You can see my kit at the Geavity section on the top left corner of my blog..

It's not the latest DSLR camera in the market but it's still a very good camera.. It was reviewed as the camera that can do anything since it can fit any EF or EF-S lenses by Canon and it has the capability of shooting full HD videos. I'll call it, the all rounder..

So, I was around the Curve yesterday for a movie and I stumbled upon this piano player. At first, I did not notice him till I saw a crowd of people pushing through to watch him play. I managed to get through to take a video and a few photos of him.

He was a nice guy. After his performance, he spent about 45 minutes having a chat with me. He, Yang I-Deun, is a mix of Korean-Portuguese-Armenian-French (Yes, he has a mix of 4 different races), grew up in Kuala Lumpur and lived most of his life traveling from KL to Singapore with his family. He started playing the piano since he was 6 years old.

At first, he did not have any interest in the piano. His parents sent him for piano lessons since then. It wasn't by interest, neither by force. He claimed that learning piano was much better than doing house chores. He plays most piano styles, including Pop and Romance. He plays in malls around Klang Valley..

Here is a video of him performing Nobody by Wondergirls..

If you want to contact him or find out about his performance locations, his manager, Donnie Goh will be very happy to receive your call.. His number is 0122156789. It was his last day at the Curve when i met him. So do drop a call to Donnie Goh about his whereabouts.

Most Epic Planned Photo I Took

This photo was made for a competition.. So I thought of doing something crazy.. Storyline, were doing our Form 6 course and its really hard. We face STPM which is known to be one of the top 3 hardest examinations in the world. So I wanted illustrate the stress and pressure that we feel while studying and going through it.. It makes us feel as if, the world just wants to crash down onto us.

But as I said, its made for a competition.. So please help me Vote by clicking on this link (or click on the photo) and click 'Like'.. Please re-post it on your wall.. Thank you.. =D

Anyway, do not fear Form 6 if you plan to take it up.. There are lots of things which I learnt (or maybe that I changed) here. Just study constantly and you will get through, as our parents did in the past.. =)
