Listen to the Rain

That was actually what happened during this shoot, we were listening and watching the clouds all the time and decide when to retreat for shelter.

A recording breaking of running for shelter three times had happened. Talk about a disastrous shoot. I had to shoot fast like a ninja before running for shelter again.

But still, I managed to get pictures. 😀

Thank you so much to Frank for driving us and lending us his place for makeup and preparations.

Transition

Putting my newer works together in a row and compare them with my older works, I think it does shows the differences. At least the color tones I think. Improvement or just a slight change in direction/style/whatever? I don’t really know, but I don’t think I’d care much either.

Japan trip was exhausting. The agony of following a tour group, made me miss my free and easy trips. I really do not fancy having to change hotels everyday, the unpacking and packing were ridiculous, especially in winter.

Looked through the photos, processed them a bit, and again Japan had proved to me that sunlight is more friendly and beautiful overseas as compared to Singapore. The colors all turned out beautiful, just like my Sydney and Switzerland pictures.

I want to have a shoot here… one day.

And now I can finally release the series of pictures I took last year.

Totally awesome team. Love them all ❤ There are more pictures of course, just check out any one of my other galleries for full series. This set was inspired by Le Cirque de Karakuri, a manga series I really love, though the art may not be as appealing as many series now. It's not pretty, it's pretty raw and I like it 🙂

Make a Wish

Another year has passed, now even the Lunar new year is here. I do feel a little regret not writing down my wish when I was in Japan last week. Just a little. Ya.

I’m still feeling kind of tired right now, the trip itself was totally draining. Will update with more pictures soon when I feel better.
