Hairstylist . 2013

Ricoh GR, ISO5000, SOOC, 2013
Straight from the camera with no editing... Now, I'm beginning to miss the Ricoh.

Pasar malam (night market) is a part of Malaysia's culture. Today, it has gotten so expensive that you can easily spend RM50 within 50 metres of walking in it, and your stomach is still less than half full. But walking with a camera is free of charge, empty stomach but if you are lucky, you get some nice shots. It's a good place to test your high ISO, haha...

Expressions . 2013

shot with Ricoh GR, ISO3200, SOOC, 2013
Found this in my harddrive, the Ricoh GR files really are much better than the GRDiii :)

I remember I sold my GR a few months after I owned it (actually exchanged it with a Konica Hexar from a friend), because I preferred the deeper depth of field (due to it's smaller sensor) and larger aperture of the GRDiii (F1.8 vs F2.8).

I did no touch up to the above file. It's straight from the camera. That's the nice thing about the Ricohs!

Gritty Roast Goose 2018

From GRDiii, RAW edited in LR, 2018.

I have stopped carrying a camera in my bag daily for quite a while except my Samsung S7 mobile. Recently dug out my Ricoh GRDiii and started shooting again... more like testing it because I planned to sell it. (Sold)

Kinda miss it's black and white, and the comfortable grip, the customizable buttons and decent battery life! (Comparing to Sony, it's long life!)

This is just one of the test shots of one of my favourite food.

Using a proper camera really is different from holding a smartphone. You feel different.

I am happy that my GRDiii is in the hands of another enthusiast now and I hope he continues to produce wonderful pictures with it.

Sisters, 2013

I am back posting and writing after a long long silence.

Photo taken with Ricoh GRD3 (SOOC) years ago in Singapore. I am actually pixel peeping my files considering which cameras to sell off. Trying to reduce my camera collection, haha...

Photography and gears are closely knitted. One can't live without the other. It's impossible not to discuss about gears and pixel peep from time to time. Not necessarily with people, but in my own world.

Opposite Attracts or ...

Common Interest. Dannok, Thailand. 2011.

Opposite attracts or "Birds of the same feathers flock together"?

I think both exists. It depends on how you look at it.
