AFA Singapore 2014 Trip
It’s already a week since Anime Festival Asia (AFA) Singapore 2014 started. Now I’m down with influenza virus that I caught from my partner-in-crime (virus keeps mutating from every individual!), I’ll be less active with the site updates until I recover soon.
Post Processing Ho!
In the mean time, I got the chance to explore the Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority on my Canon 550D. Previously, I’ve been using mainly Program mode which is a huge mistake as I’m letting the camera determine the best aperture and shutter speed for exposure without considering the desire depth of field effect that I’m aiming for.
All photos shown here are processed using Adobe Camera Raw plugin for Photoshop CS6. Regardless of the software version, one must not use software as an excuse when processing any of the photos as early DSLR owners aka low megapixels and slow SD card still managed to produce beautiful photos using Photoshop alone. While Adobe Camera Raw is easier to use for RAW photos, take note that this message is intended for folks who stubbornly refuse to learn the in and out of Photoshop.
Actions/Batch in Photoshop? What’s that? It is something that you can eat?
Yes, I met a particular character at AFA who keeps swearing that Photoshop have no support in handling actions/batch stuff compared to other applications when Photoshop have supported Actions and Batch command since version 4.0 (that was back in late 1996 when I’m just about to end my Standard/Year 2 class at SRK Jalan Bellamy located near the previous Istana Negara in Malaysia). Phew.
Anyway this post will take a while to load with slow connection and enjoy the photos!
Sorry I’m not in one of the pictures. I’m the camera shy type.
Also shoutout to CDS for their help throughout the event and also my cousin for his hospitality throughout my stay in Singapore!
