What I did on the first day of the year........

Went out with Shazly Khan and Jim Manan for a shoot with the ever sultry Evon T on the very first day of 2009. Didn't shoot much.....was still slow on the take.

Have not been shooting much lately......lost my appetite after my assignment with the H3D. Somehow compared to it....everything seemed less.

However....Evon managed to make our day and made me forget about the 3D for a while.

Thanks Evon, Shazly and Jim for accompanying me that day.

A coffee shot

A client wanted me to come up with concept shots for them before they give me the green light for the advert. Came up a few test shots with the Hasselblad H3D (39 Megapixels).

p/s....the shot was cropped 100% (pic 1)........cropped 400% (pic 2). Shots were only sharpen b4 posting for web and nothing else.........just imagine how sharp they were before they were cropped. I'm impressed with it.

Now I can go to least half of the pressure is now off.

Character jugdment

There was a man who had 4 sons
He wanted his sons to learn not to judge too quickly
So he sent them each on a quest
In turn to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance a way

The first son went in the winter
The second went in the spring
The third in the summer
And the youngest in the fall

When they had gone and come back,
The man called them together to describe what they had seen.

The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent and twisted.
The second son said it was covered with green buds and full of promise.
The third son later said it was laden with blossom that smelled so sweet looked so beautiful
It was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.
The last son disagreed with all of them
He said it was ripe and drooping with fruits; full of life and fulfillment.

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right
For they had each seen but only one season in the tree’s life.

He had told them that you cannot judge a tree or a person by only one season
And that the essence of who they are and the pleasure,
Joy and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end
When all the seasons are up

If you give up when its winter
You will miss the promise of your spring
The beauty of your summer
Fulfillment of your fall

Don’t let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest
And don’t judge life by one difficult season


Persevere through the difficult patches
And better times are sure to come

Don't judge a person's character too quickly
Judge them wholly and self reflect
