Touching Strangers

g15 g16 g17 g18 g19 g20

You read it right. So, I was at Manly Beach, Sydney and I touched every single stranger I met (well, not really). And I’m telling you, only 1 out of all rejected me. It was that good till I became addicted to it and I wanted to touch everybody on the beach! LOL.

Time is slipping away. If I don’t bring my camera wherever I go, the moments will pass just like that. She is so precious. I don’t want her to grow up. Stay as you are and I will take care of you forever. My love for you is unconditional. Never I want the world to hurt you even in the blink of an eye.

So, I was in Sydney for the Film Is Not Dead workshop in March. Stayed in Narrabeen for 4 days, where the workshop was held and 2 days in the city. FIND Sydney photos will be up very very soon as I just got back my last 5 rolls from the FIND lab. It was freakin’ amazing and I couldn’t think of any better investment to learn about film photography but to attend FIND workshop.

By the way, these were taken on a Contax 645 with various films – Fuji Pro 160NS, Fuji Pro 400H, Kodak Portra 160 and Kodak Portra 800. I had one day to spare before leaving for Malaysia so I walked from Kings Cross (where I stayed) to Sydney Opera House. It took me 2 hours (30 minutes if you walk non stop) to get there because I kept stopping every 5-10 minutes to take pictures. It was worth it.

Mixed Film Stock

So I tested out a few film stocks just for fun. Top diptych was shot with Fuji Pro 400H, second and last were taken with Kodak Portra 400, third diptych was shot with expired Centuria 100. I think I’m going to stick with Kodak Portra 400 for a while and see how it goes. Love the colour rendition and fine grain produced by the film. All shots were taken with Contax 645.

PS: Can’t wait to blog about my trip to Sydney, Australia.

Freakin’ awesome trip to Bali with my buddies Sakhee, Wan and Adam. We went in January but it felt just a week ago. Photos were shot on a Nikon F6 with I think mostly Kodak ColorPlus 200 and black and white on Neopan 400.

For those who do not know, I do destination weddings and portraiture too! Drop me a line for more details!
