Back.. with a vengeance.. I think..

Well, it didn't take long but I finally realigned my equipment bag. Out went the "almost new" 70-300mm VR, and in came the 85mm f1.8. Out went the ring flash and the Speedlite Pro Kit, and in came the Demb Flash Diffuser.

I also decided that this year, I want to focus a lot more on people and also on weddings (don't know how this is going to happen :P). So, I am now known as the PRIME WEDDING SHOOTER!!! wahahahaha :P Seriously, primes are the bomb :P

I also want to try and learn from the people that reads this blog, which means, somehow I need to shoot with them :P

The list includes:

1. Wedding/ Portrait with Mark Leo
2. Wedding/ Portrait with Steph
3. Street Shoot with LordMint
4. Food with Meendee (Why food? I don't know!)
5. Street Shoot with Vince in Singapore
6. Travel with Kar Heng
7. Travel with Su (Err let me figure out how to get to Japan)
8. Anything with Jan Shim
9. Wedding with Shiney
10. Parkour with Amir

I would also love to shoot the following:

1. Concept or themed portraiture
2. Rock concert
3. Stage plays
4. Profile shots for a rock band

I think that is pretty much it. Now how am I going to achieve those goals? Hrmmm..

food from me? you're shooting food so much better than me, i should be learning from you :)

good to see you back with more goals and gears, i was so worried you're jumping off the bandwagon to something else :P

Woohoo! Let's go shoot some street shots together when you're over in Singapore! :D

But learning from me? I don't think I have anything to offer you leh. You should be teaching me instead. lol.
