Thaipusam 2010

Reviewed my Thaipusam 2010 shots today and they were not too bad considering the fact that it was my first time in such an event! I was squirming when I looked at my images, and I really can’t believe that I actually took those shots>.> It was seriously a case of blocking out my fear to shoot.

I posted the nicer ones on Deviant art today and my page view for today hit 46!!! New record 8D Compared to my average page view of about four-plus per day and my record page view of 25…

Even my dad said that a few of the shots were not too bad so I must be moving in the right direction! Just that, I could have gone closer and practice manual focusing so that I do not depend on my camera, which can be somewhat unreliable when I need it the most.

I will be dumping lots of pictures here and on Deviant art over the next few days as I have lots of shots I cannot bear to delete so it will all be posted up(: The shots here will mostly be out of focus/ blur/ camera shake/ not very eye-catching ones but I just liked either the mood/ energy or the way I composed them(: Coupled with the fact that my brain was not working, I think the shots are passable for now. I will get better!

Work today was so fabulous as eight people walked into the shop… BUT, I still managed to make a sale of 135SGD(: Yayness

Piercing>.< I have a shot of them piercing the tongue and I when I zoom in on the tongue to get a closer look, I almost died>.> Maybe I shall post that one up as well 8D

 They are singing some prayer song, I guess.

Think chaos. Could have gone lower! Then again I think M was below me so he should have an excellent shot of this!

Wide-angle is my new found love<3
Alright. I will most likely be using two of the image for the SYPA competition, so I have four more to go! YAYNESS<333
