I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

my entry to Macro Flowers


initially, i took a number of this in RAW for photo stacking but I managed to corrupt them while processing, so what we ended up here is from one uncropped jpeg image.

The "composition" of this photograph was influenced by previous comments made by Scott and Mojo. Thanks guys!

ysabelle's series #1 - mooring

this was taken by my 6 year old daughter with her Casio Exilim EX-Z1000 on one of our photo walks. From time to time I will be posting some of her photos here and I will call it Ysabelle's series.
