Selamat Hari Jennih

Happy Birthday Jen!

…oops, wrong Jen. Tumbuk kang!

Happy Birthday Jen!

So, like how old are you? (The second digit is in the unraised fingers of that hand.)

She still goes “ooo! AAA! EEE!” when I poke her. She’s still as cartoony as ever.

All shots were with the Minolta 50mm F1.4 at F1.4, and the Pro Tama 0.7x wide angle converter, to give a sweet softness while having the convenience of a 35mm F1.4 on my Sony A100 which has a 1.5x crop factor.

Aiya, why my pictures all soft wan?

Hello, halo!

CoDo, above Little Vietnam on the middle court of the 2nd floor of Midvalley, serves excellent drinks, like soda water with sour plum. I also liked their lychee with lemongrass jello.

Oooh, and all shots are just resized, and unedited. 🙂

    the softness is normal for the 50/f1.4 especially when you shoot at f1.4. mine yield these kind of results too. stop down will be sharper

    Tan Yee Wei: Actually, I lowered the in-camera contrast. Having too much contrast on these soft dreamy pictures kill the effect (drag it into Photoshop and you’ll see what I mean.)

    They were shot with the Minolta 50mm F1.4 with the 58mm-threaded Pro Tama 0.7x wide angle converter. At F1.4 contrast is lower, and the converter adds softness in the center, as well as a lot of diffused glow.
