Yoga pose - A day at the Barage

It was a mad rush getting up early at about 5:45 am. The buses seems to take longer than normal arrived and to reach Shenton Way. Wait, it did not reach Fullerton Bay Hotel. I was informed that on Sunday, the bus take a different route. Well, luckily Shashi, pick me up at the Suntec City. The huge led panel was showing some Japanese cute toys. Along the road were a couple shooting the LED panel, perhaps for documenting the playback. I took a few photos too. By the time we reached the Barage, all the Yoga students had already warmed up for the photography session. Manoj introduced me as the photographer artist, perhaps the artist can have some artistic freedom and latitude.
Each one took turns to pose on the concrete bench. It started with a tall European lady. I may have taken a photograph of her 2 years ago. Perhaps, time to get reacquainted. I had to go on my knees to get a lower angle shot. I waited for the Yoga students to get into their position before I released the shutter. It was rather tiring after half an hour into the shoot. Perhaps my body is getting old and stiff. I was offered grapes to quench my thirst. Thanks, them for so considerate. I was offered Banana too. 
I had a 10 min break when the students were gather to listen to Ravi, who is the founder of COME India and a few orphanage. In fact we were raising funds for COME doing photography to raise fund.

Coral - A visit with the Architect, Ng Shuh Fang

The weather was rather cloudy and shadow was almost non-existence. No blue sky nor strong colours. The only solution was to emphasize the plan of the building and the balconies which are the main features of the elevations. The way light is brought into the basement carparks is unique, creating an airy and bright space -- very welcoming.

Remembrance - A great friend Regunathan Ambalam

A great friend had just past away. Here is a page to commemorate him.
I got to know Regu in year 2000 while working for iVenture. We were putting together an online learning portal, www.itutor.com. It was a wonderful experience and exhilarating time. Regu was energetic and full of marketing ideas. He planned, and held many events to promote the online service.
We will definitely miss him. We shared many happy and impromptu moments which made up the adventure and wonders of our life. We debated on ideas, probed into our differences and worked on them, he is always proactive and positive. One is always energized, free and light in his company, always enjoyable. He is always a great company; he never failed to make a lasting impression on others.

SUTD

Shot with high definition photography where the plants are lively green and appear more attractive. Care is taken to ensure correct exposure through bracketing and detail adjustment to achieve optimum result. It takes more time working on the post-processing of the photographs compared to shooting them. Usually, early morning and late afternoon are better for architectural photography. It is necessary to come back as the lighting would be different through the day. The sunlight falls on different facade during different time of the day.

Yoga photographic session

An exploration of Yoga and the Garden. Yoga is a way of life that returns to the inner self reaching out to encompass nature and the larger realm of existence. It is not just about training the physical self, but expanding the mind through meditation, knowledge and connecting to every being of this universe. I hopes to capture Yoga in the way the practitioner reach out to nature. it promotes the use of the Park for a healthy cause. The park becomes the sanctuary of the physical and the mind.

Children Photography

A picture is worth a thousand words, we cannot deny the importance of photography in this information-laden world. Words are no longer enough to communicate an idea effectively. They have to be supplemented with brilliantly taken photographs. In fact, the photograph is becoming the quintessential message, and the words become secondary. The photographs speak volumes. It is a language. Everyone needs to learn and master this language. I should have mastered it when I am much younger, but I did not have the opportunity until I was 15. However, my children or your children can start early.
In this Basic course, your child will learn to use the camera and be creative
