Calling all photography enthusiasts. Come share your interests, post photos, discuss latest tech releases, hao lian your equipments, etc over here. :pic:

Let me start the ball rolling... Im a newbie in photography in terms of skills, though I have been playing for a while. Looking for like minded kakis, maybe we can have photoshoots together, of our cars or otherwise so that I can improve on my skills. Looking forward to learn from all gurus and of course to share tips and tricks as well.

Woohoo!

First and foremost, I am a Canon type user! :D

Nothing to hao lian hahaha. My equipment is old stuff but I love shooting especially with the 5D Mk 1.

Equipment List

-------------------

EOS 300D

EOS 5D Mk 1

F1.8 MkII 50mm

F4L 17-40mm

The only thing to hao lian is some published work - this was taken last Dec at The Empire State Building for resident saxophonist Mr Wil Greenstreet :P

I was hanging around the observation deck but didn't have a tripod (can't bring 'em upstairs) so I had to use the metal rail as a stabilizing element to help with a longer exposure in a low light environment. Wil came over, we chatted for abit. One thing led to another and this photo ended up getting published.

Here's one of my favorite stitched images taken at Yosemite National Park with the 5D.

Actually it's no big deal man. Lotsa shutterbugs out there that have quality stuff, just a matter of time and chance. ;)

What camera are you using from the Canon lineup ? I love reading about the new gear but it's another black hole of $$$ that often ends up sitting in the dry cabinet hahaha!

Damn. You have got a real nice collection of primes!!!

Honestly, I'm very tempted with the 5D3. You can imagine how long I've "looned" the itch to upgrade. DiGiC processing aside, the main thing for me is 720p 60fps movie mode.

Yea I am a prime lover!

Go for the 5D3 if you're a movie lover. MTL!

I've read a lot about how good movies are with the 5D3. Personally Im not a movie person and I've never shot a video clip before with my dslr.

Cool bro! Yeah I'll definitely consider the 5D3 and a nice prime to shoot. Need a bloody rig to do nice videos and those are expensive as well.

Share some of your work please! :) Looking forward!!

@g8crasher - Mine are just humble shots and not considered 'work', still in the learning phase.

@Cklasse - I love panning shots. Still trying to perfect my skills on it. Here's one taken from the F1 race. Still unable to 'shoot thru the fence'

I love to do panning too, only on slow moving object.

Panning is an art :bow:

Cklasse : even your p&s G11 can do great pan shots! :)

Remember Kelvin's wedding on a super wet afternoon heading back to Singapore. You can tell my lens was dirty haha.

Wow that is pretty spectacular!!!!!!!! That fish looks so mean!!

Would love to see how you lug all that equipment around underwater.

What skill sets are required for underwater shoots ? Anticipation, lighting etc vastly different ?

Fabulous! Post more!

Underwater photography is another art altogether. I understand a good set of underwater housing costs as much as the body itself!

I reckon a good set of underwater housing is absolutely necessary. Imagine the pressure at that depth. If the housing was to give way, there goes your lens and body...

Quite true my s&s housing only cost me 2.5x EOS7D I will post my setup if i am back to SG. Underwater photo is fun at least you don't hear people bragging about their camera underwater :)
