Portraits @ work

Did some impromptu shots around my workplace as my colleague wanted a new FB profile picture. The lighting was tough as I could only work with one on-shoe flash which meant getting creative in finding ways to soften the light. Of course having an umbrella available would have been nice but I left it at home. Plus this short photo shoot wasn't planned so I had to make do with the available equipment.

Despite the lack of equipment, I'm pretty pleased with the results. :)

Reaching in.


The best portrait of the lot.

Xbox 360

It was a toss-up between the PS3 and Xbox but I ended up with the Xbox because the PS Move was pretty expensive in the long run.

The Xbox package came with the Kinect and a free kinect game; Kinect Adventures which was good but not brilliant. Thankfully I bought the Kinect Sport which was more engaging than the Kinect Adventures. However, it has to be said that a motion sensor can only be so accurate. Certain moves like smashing the ball does not really translate well into your avatar's actions. Nevertheless, it was still great fun as you don't need the controller to play.

All you have to do is to jump around and wave you arms like a mad man. :)





Another year, another wedding and another chance to practice. Besides, the 17-55mm f/2.8 needed breaking in so it was the perfect opportunity.

Needless to say, my keeper rates were pretty low but at least I managed to get some pretty decent shots from the wedding.
