This month is almost at its end and I have to say it’s been quite an eventful one. It feels good to go out and shoot pictures again. I would like to shoot more photography but it seems like I’ve got something going on every single weekend. But at the same time shooting also has me backlogged in processing pictures. Hopefully in the coming weeks I’ll be able to sort, process and post more pictures.

Jenny and Jing

I can add another mark on the belt for shooting weddings. Last night Jenny and Jing were married and I had the privilege to shoot the wedding. I’ve shot friends’ weddings and people I don’t know. The ones I prefer and have much more fun shooting are friends’ weddings. It’s the friends’ weddings you know most of the people there. It’s also the friends’ weddings you are more comfortable and are able to get shots you are less likely to get when shooting strangers’ weddings. When I shoot friends’ I’m more behind the scenes. At the end of the day I am exhausted. Asian weddings tend to last the whole day and after 10 hours you start to feel the burn in your legs. Nevertheless I wouldn’t trade that to shoot strangers’ weddings.

Congrats Jenny and Jing. I had a great time shooting your wedding.

Ever since my point and shoot, Pentax Optio S was stolen almost 3 years ago I haven’t had the urge to buy another point and shoot. Since I bought an SLR class camera, I’ve always opted to carry the heavier camera favoring higher quality pictures. Now I’ve been carrying the heavy camera/lens around, I’m starting to have the itch to buy another point and shoot. I’ve always read the Canon G series has been a great camera for advanced camera users because #1) it has manual features #2) it’s portable and #3) it has a hot shoe. Now that I have a wireless transmitter and receiver it enables me to move the flash off camera. Bundle that with a Canon G10 and all of a sudden you opened up another dimension of photography that’s impossible with a normal point and shoot. To prove the point I borrowed Ken’s G9 and I was quite impressed. It was just as simple to use the wireless transmitter and receiver on the G9 as my SLR. I’m so impressed I’m willing to recommend it for people who want more than a point and shoot, but is not ready to spend money on an SLR. It’s a smaller investment and a great beginner camera to learn manual features of any camera.

Sick v2

Growing up in a Chinese household sucks when you are sick. I almost can not remember a time when my parents allowed me to stay home sick. Every single time I was sick I was still forced to go to school. It mattered none that I had the flu and was highly contagious. It mattered none I was coughing and my nose was dripping like a leaky faucet. I still had to go to school. After moving out and working it was finally up to me to decide how to handle being sick. Should I stay home or force myself to work sick? Over the years I’ve come to the conclusion that if I was sick and contagious like with a bad cough, then I would stay home. Otherwise I would suck it up and force myself to work. If it was bad enough, I would go see the doctor and get a few days off from work. Tell you what; it’s the best system to have. Who knows how many people I got sick when I was going to school. Who knows how many people they got sick after I got them sick. My rule of thumb at work is if you are sick and have a chance to get other people sick, do us all a favor please stay home. I don’t want what you have.
