Went over to catch Dim Sum Dollies (shall talk about it later!) last Sunday evening and arrived a wee bit too early. Since I was armed with my trusty camera, I decided to grab a couple of shots.
Some people ask why I chose to buy such a pricey camera when I could jolly well purchase one of those point-and-shoot cameras. Thing is, even though I am not very good at photography, I like it very much. I may be better with words than visuals but I see it as another avenue for my artistic exploits. Once I got used to playing with the manual settings, I never shot again in auto mode. It just seemed more fun and interesting to play with shutter speeds and stuff like that.
We don’t always have to be good at the things we like and we don’t always need to hide the creations that we don’t think are breathtaking or up-to-par with others’. If this is the best that we can do, then so be it.
Hopefully tonight will yield nicer pictures. Am going off to catch the Singapore Fireworks Festival, hurrah!
Update: I ain’t a very good fireworks photographer. First, we were facing the wrong direction. Second, I was so fascinated by the fireworks, I decided, sod it, I’m just going to ooh and aah over them.
