Saffron vs. Ranoadidas


Couldn’t get lots of good pictures as I forgot to bring my Wireless Triggers for my flash, so all I could do was use CLS, which meant line of sight, which meant I can’t fiddle my camera around to get good angles as this would definitely block the CLS signals. But in any case, I had to make do with what I’ve got, which meant practice some more in case my wireless trigger do fail, which I half heartedly expect them to during a shoot.

BIBD Invitational Netball Tournament

After having a rough day the day before, it’s good to know that a brief stint of photography outing can restore the cheer in me. Wasn’t really looking forward to it considering, but it turned out great for me, and I get to practice before an actual event that’s coming up, and I get to practice some Strobist techniques.

While I can’t replicate some of the techniques I’ve read up on Strobist, as there was no overhang behind the net, and sticking it clost to mid court was impossible as well due to the heavy traffic of people and the refs officiating the game. There was only one or two metres clearance from the sideline to the walls, so space was limited. Improvise? There’s a ledge right near the net area to one side which extends to a doorway which was not used, and as it was right in the corner, I know I won’t block the view of the spectators. You can see it in my second shot. I aimed it at around the middle of the half court on a tripod, so the light would be evenly spread from the net at its nearest end, and will at least tickle the light above ambient on the other end.

The other strobe was on the light stand as far away from the action as possible right at the corner. This pointed at the same area as well. Was triggering with my G.I. remotes, but intermittently, the flashes will not fire. This could be time to replace the batteries in the receivers, and also I would need to mod the receivers so it can fire at a higher percentage when I’m at the other end of the court.

Free movement around the court, and armed with f/2.8s, ISO800, I got quite good results. Grainy as heck, but it looks oh so crisp and detailed. I might go and do some aggressive NR with these pics in the future. Here’s a selection of pictures in portrait form. Some more pics can be found here:

Go-Kart Race at Jerudong Park on 6th May, 2007

After the morning TT session at Jing Chew with… wait for it… Bruneian, AnakBrunei and missus, Zadm, Ber (who left as I was arriving), Airbiscuit, Jim747, hjzul, RezaFaizal and missus, Nikonian, and the ever knowing Rano, (phew, that’s a long list)… me, Airbiscuit and Jim747 decided to go ahead with Rano’s suggestion of a Go-Kart/Cub Bike/Mini Bike race at Jerudong Park’s Go Kart track. It was awesome grounds to practice panning shots. Hey, what’s more fun to pan with than a relatively slow moving auto race? Got great images out of the whole deal. What a way to spend my 24th birthday.

Gentleman… Start your engines!

Preng, preng, preeennnggg!!

Hehe, cute…


Panning shot experiment.



I love the reflection so much that I had to crop it down in the last two pics.

President’s Cup Softball Tournament

Went with Airbiscuit to cover the Presidents’s cup. It was rather scorching, if it weren’t for some sunblock, I’d be in lobster agony by now.

Black Arrows Pitcher at the 8:00 game.

Some mind games were going on.


The lovely Umpress? Or is that Umpiress?


Strangely, bunting was an acceptable strategy.

After the Wildcats seen one too many protests goes in favor of the Go Divas! team, they went ahead and forfeited the game. This is the Go Divas! at their unique winning celebration.

At the end, it was all smiles for the camera.

The 11:00 game with the QD Vixens at bat against the Comets.

An adjacent game. The name escapes me at the moment.

Lots of cringing moments. Just imagine a stray ball heading for your lens!
