Well a surprising improvement, tragically still not enough as I need a 7 for writing! CRAP! My last score was
Here is an odd ball roll of film, this is the first time I am trying out a film rated at 125 ISO, heck I never even tried this ISO on digital body but surprisingly it performs rather well as you can see.
Yup, it was bound to happen. Sooner or later someone (actually a lot of times since a lot of newbies ask me this interesting question) would ask for this, what do I bring to a desert island of despair~~~~~~? (dum dum dum da~~~~~~~)
Imagine one day going to a bookstore, you’re an adult with buying power. You want to buy a book or magazine so that you may enjoy the content(hopefully) that you paid (say RM120). Now imagine what you will feel when after paying for the magazine or book, you then proceed home, open the book/magazine and find that its been censored with black marker pen.
An experiment in nendoroid photography.
I had just finished reading an article at reuters you can find here. For some reason I couldn’t help noticing the incredible similarity that his country was facing. Well not really its just that when I read this paragraph
When I could get a word in edgeways, I asked Mohamed why there weren’t more protests like last year. “I’ll tell you,” he explained. “The people are not united, they are afraid to go out and protest. And, of course, most people are too busy trying to feed and educate their families.”
It struck a cord with me, let’s face it! Malaysia has a lot of shitty problems and yet no one does anything about it. If the government stinks, get rid of them! But Malaysians are just simply contend with maintaining the status quo, not because they are lazy (well partially) but because they are not united, afraid to take risk due to the education system they were raised in schools and at home that non-conformism is shameful and wrong.
We are all the same, regardless of skin color, religion and culture but because we are taught that inconformism is something like communism of haydays people are afraid to go out and make noise about it and those that DO want to make noise but cannot due to their inherent fear of persecution by the government who would be more then glad to crush any small rebellion with their use of ISA will always remain where they are, NO where!
But you might ask why can’t a lone person change anything ? Let’s face it, only those with immense power can singlehandedly change anything alone because power makes change. I guess this is why the Malaysian loves to keep the Malays, Chinese and Indians as segmented as possible, to prevent from creating or forming something the current BN party is afraid of which is all of us coming to the realization that we are being fucked everyday by them while they enjoy the fruits of our labor and they have whores sucking them off (and blowing up anyone with C4 that even looks at them funny!) . They are terrified of the people coming together and getting rid of them either via election or bloodshed.
I hope this article doesn’t get me arrested under ISA.
I really should start cataloging all my film work…..I found another developed roll of film today between the pages of my many big books on the shelf.
God damnit! Why doesn’t Fujifilm make an FX version of this WONDERFUL DSLR?! If there is one I would have bought it over the D700!
I mean sure, it would probably be twice the price of the D700 but shit yeah it would be the last DSLR I would ever NEED! HECK! I would even want to be buried with that DSLR when I’m dead of old age!!
But then, that’s not to say the S5 pro is a slouch, far from it! It can really hold it’s own against even full frame cameras and that is why sometimes I have a hard time in choosing what camera to bring to a shoot. “Should I bring the S5 or the D700?” This thought always comes to mind when I go out or attend an event.
Anyway, since I was doing a review for studio flash set for my last entry I also decided to bring out my S5 after I had completed the review to have some fun with it!
I’ve been told time and time again that the S5 pro really shines when used in studios and wedding shoots. I’ve never used it in a wedding shoot nor have I used it in a studio shoot until now and boy! I had some really fun trying a lot of ideas all the while not worry about time constraints!
But here is the best shot from all that!
Today I finally got around to fully test the S180 studio light setup as I had absolutely nothing to do today.
I also decided to take this opportunity to yes one of my other figures in my collection aside from Momo.
Here in her lively splendor is Ayanami Rei by Yamato.
But before we begin here is the rundown about this studio light set. It consist of
1. 3 strobe lights
2. A large square diffuser
3. A large octogonal diffuser
4. A honeycomb head with 4 different colored gel
All the lights are very well built and it seems to be equiped with all the trimmings you would expect from a studio light set, minus the expensive price tag of course.
Also I better put a disclaimer about this review, this is my first time using a studio light set all by myself and without the hustle and bustle of a time schedule but I make no claim that this is an exhaustive review of this studio light and I make no claim that I am very very sure of my techniques here. Right let’s get down to it shall we?
