It's been quiet here on the Updates/News page recently, not because I've been lying low, but because I've been very busy with a bunch of projects, so expect a slew of updates in the coming weeks!
However, one of the things I would like to share is my being featured as the "Expert of the Month" on Samsung's Smart Photography website, an initiative to showcase the work of local and regional photographers, to give tips to aspiring photographers as well as an insight into the kind of work I do and how I go about doing it!
There are even a couple of workshops where I will get to meet with members of the Singapore photographic community to talk more about travel and street photography. You can register for that here.
Another pretty cool thing for photo enthusiasts is the chance to win a spanking new Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom by taking part in the monthly challenge. You simply submit your street photos by the 27th of Sept, 2013, and the winner walks away with a brand new camera phone! It doesn't even matter what camera (or camera brand) you use to shoot the pictures. So join the community and have a look at what other photographers, not only in Singapore, but regionally, are seeing and shooting!
I always say that one of the easiest ways to improve oneself as a photographer is to keep looking at pictures, and not just "like" or "dislike" them, but to actually take time to examine what you actually appreciate about them, or to dissect them and figure out what about the picture doesn't appeal to you.
This would be a great time to start!
