A walk in the garden

I have been almost 10 years since I last visited the Singapore Botanic Gardens. With the SMRT Circle Line opened recently, I decided to take the chance and bring Mia for her first visit to the Botanic Gardens

The station new exit is on the other end of the garden near Duream Road . In the past most visitors if they are visiting by bus they will be entering from the main gate at Tanglin Road.

New glass

Finally got my hand on the Canon EF-S 10-22mm after drooling it over for almost 4 months. I first experienced this lens during a camera shoot with my friend and the results was incredible. Its simply make people on the far end "disappear". When I try it on doll shooting. It is easier frame with the background. Only problem is have to look out your own gears and shadows so they won't fall into the frame.

If for negative comment, this does not have IS (okay...this lens was more meant for landscape and most people use it with a tripod) But when shooting dolls in some wired position an IS will help and especially for the evening shoots. Hope the next version will come with IS and cost around SGD $1000.

Next is to prepare the budget for DD Saber Alter...the biggest ever budget spent on dolls >_<

Re-visiting the railway - Part 2

Continue from Part 1

View to truss bridge

After shooting at the bridge we started heading over to Bukit Timah Railway Station along the path which the tracks once existed. But the entire place is muddy after tracks were removed.

Last Sat Mia finally have a chance to re-visit the truss bridge along the KTM line. We don't have much chance to travel last month due to my studies and Singapore GP. So she was excited along with her new outfit she worn during the F1.

Mia @ F1

Of course I won't miss the chance to bring Mia along for the F1 race on Sat. Was really luckily to get a day ticket that day, but sadly did not have much time to snap with Mia as the place is quite crowded in areas which were good for shooting. Only managed a few acceptable shoots for Mia at the end.
