Street Photography In Little India, Singapore

Little India of Singapore carries her colourful and vibrant little buildings (like below) and flower garlands like her favourite insignia. While they make for interesting and colourful pictures, I find the clash of various hues too overwhelming at times. Colours could also distract and divert too much attention of the viewer from the main elements and story of the photograph.

Enters black and white photography, where contrast of tones make a greater impact than palettes of raging colours. For this session, I focused my attention on: leading lines (provided by building structures) and moments of event worth freezing. Nonetheless, I believe I should work harder on one unifying concept to challenge myself a little more, perhaps even accumulating more photos before posting them up.


One small exception: I love the largely muted tone of this shot, featuring Rhina (A student from Singapore Polytechnic) from New Delhi,  and his Boss, both of whom wholeheartedly agreed to post for this candid shot. They were willing to share their smiles with me and this is one of those moment which make street photography priceless🙂


Penang Island: Traditional Pearl of the East

It is my pleasure to share some of the highlights of a not so recent (December 2014) photography excursion to the Penang Island of Malaysia.

Half a year into my new found hobby, I began to ponder upon the words of the sagacious counsel of Adam Ansel: “There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.” Long I had held onto the belief of the beauty of the scene should speak for itself; quickly I have realised my folly as my shutter returned image after image of conceptually bland, but technically perfect okay results that failed to hold even my own attention!

This trip, my first solo street exploration, turned out to be a first immersion into the serene pool of photographic baptism, as I strived to capture the traditional fragments of chrono-crystals within the Pearl of the East. Do take sometime to see my work and leave your comments below for any constructive criticism and feedback!
