By JASON LIOH firstname.lastname@example.org The key to capturing a great photo is not, I believe, by using the latest and most advanced camera or understanding every technical aspect of photography. It is through good composition. A composition is a way to present to others what you have seen through your point of view in an [...]
By JASON LIOH email@example.com Buying a compact camera is a lot easier and simpler compared to buying a DSLR. Buying your first DSLR will require spending more time and research as you’ll be splurging a few thousand ringgit on a gadget that you would probably be using for the next few years. To help you [...]
By JASON LIOH firstname.lastname@example.org I HAD a tough time buying my first DSLR five years ago. I spent weeks researching, reading online reviews and asking for opinions from experienced photographers before I finally splurged RM7,000 on my gear. Buying a new camera is no easy feat these days. There are simply too many brands, types [...]
By JASON LIOH email@example.com PORTRAITURE photography is one of the most common genres that most new and young photographers want to pick up; with humans as subjects – particularly female models. However, many do not realise that portraiture photography is also one of the toughest genes to master due to the amount of variables involved [...]
By JASON LIOH Photos by JASON LIOH and ROBIN WONG firstname.lastname@example.org INSTEAD of selecting a shutter speed fast enough to stop motion and produce a sharp photo, some people choose a slow shutter speed to introduce “blurriness” into their photographs. This type of photography is called the shutter speed photography and it allows you to [...]
By JASON LIOH Photos by LUKE CHUA email@example.com I was introduced to photographer Luke Chua’s blog by a friend, and I was really amazed by his work. His photos, technically and artistically, were definitely not the work of an amateur. In fact, they looked at the very least like the work of a semi-professional. Now [...]
By JASON LIOH firstname.lastname@example.org PHOTOGRAPHING food used to be a habit among food bloggers in the past but thanks to photo sharing sites like Instagram, that habit has been taken to a whole new level. Almost everyone takes photos of food now. People even joke that they can’t enjoy their food until a photo of [...]
By JASON LIOH email@example.com I HAVE a confession here; I used to sneer at those who use their mobile phones as their primary cameras. Regardless of all the unique selling points advertised by phone manufacturers, I believed it was still a camera that produced sub-par quality images. The low megapixel count, a smaller-than-your-pinky-fingernail sensor size, [...]
By JASON LIOH firstname.lastname@example.org MOST of you wielding DSLRs and semi-professional compact cameras will find a few icons and letters on your camera dials. While the icons are mostly self-explanatory, the letters – P, A or Av, S or Tv or M – will take some figuring out and are in fact the five shooting [...]
By Jason Lioh Pics by Jason Lioh/Robin Wong email@example.com There are many types of cameras – compact cameras, digital single lens reflex (DSLR), film cameras and even rangefinder cameras. In recent years, the mirror-less camera has emerged in the market and is fast gaining popularity due to its size, weight, image quality, feature and price. [...]
By JASON LIOH firstname.lastname@example.org It’s Chinese New Year, and gathering with family and friends is part of the celebrations… and of course taking photographs is a given. We want to include everyone in the photos, so everyone must be taking lots of group photographs this week and next. Burst mode or continuous high speed shooting [...]
Exciting new gadgets THERE were many new compact cameras and DSLRs released throughout 2011 but if I have to choose one that excites me the most, it definitely has to be Canon’s latest flagship DSLR, EOS 1D-X. Canon revolutionised the EOS-1D series camera with the introduction of EOS 1D-X, set to replace both EOS-1D Mark [...]
By JASON LIOH The introduction of digital cameras more than a decade ago has revolutionised the way we take photographs. Cost of photography is significantly reduced as users are no longer required to buy rolls after rolls of films and developing them at a photo shop. Instant preview, intelligent guide mode and other built-in camera [...]
By Jason Lioh – I love landscape photography, be they natural or urban scenic views. In fact, I love this form of photography so much that whenever I travel to a foreign place, I always end up more such shots than any with myself in them.
By JASON LIOH TO BE a good photographer, you need to have a proper workflow system in place. This includes processes like downloading the pictures from a memory card, editing them, as well as uploading them onto a website. However, it is not as simple as it sounds, and there are many things you need [...]
By Jason Lioh – On most weekends and whenever he is free, engineer Robin Wong likes to hit the streets with his camera. He calls it his “shutter therapy”, a way of destressing for him. But more than that, Robin has become more and more fascinated by the wealth of subjects in street photography.
By Jason Lioh – I wasn’t interested in photography until three years ago. Before that, stunning pictures did not make a blog post, and digital cameras were really expensive. A pro-consumer camera cost about RM2,500 and that is a lot of money for a student.
