    Digital Infrared Photography

    Have u guys ever tried shooting infrared film in the past? Never? Doesn't matter! Now we will be able to achieve the same effect pretty easily with a little digital point and shoot camera! Why using a digital P&S rather than using a dslr? Check this out! http://www.nature-photography-central.com/DigitalInfraredPhotography.html
    Have fun! And I hope u guys will post some of your infrared photos here in the future!:)

    yes it's the yarra river. the first 2 pics of the cbd were taken from near the rowing boatsheds. the 3rd pic was taken from swanston bridge, showing the world's tallest residential building, eureka tower, in the centre, and melb's 2nd tallest building, rialto, on the far right (opposite side of the river from eureka tower).

    The Yarra River is famous for the wrong reasons. Recent events have turn from good to bad for the Yarra River.

    I believe it's either a Hoyt Proelite or a Hoyt Ultraelite but I don't have many photos of it. Sorry Pete.
    The message that I wanted to bring out was we shouldn't totally trust the modern digital photography! Look at the fletching,the nock and also the moving direction of that arrow!
    I have discussed with some archers in an archery forum and our conclusion was that. An unreal image might be created when the scanning direction of a color sensor fight against a very fast moving object. Depending on how we hold that camera (scanning direction of a sensor) and the direction of that fast moving object.
    So, I think conventional film photography is more "trustable"!!!

    Very nice photos of the lion dance. Which camera are you using Loh?

    I'm a badminton fan. Been watching the Olympics especially badminton streaming video via nbc's website.

    As you probably know badminton and soccer don't get any coverage at all here in the US.

    If not for this website http://www.nbcolympics.com/badminton/index.html, I wouldn't know anything until hours later.

    I started this blog since I was watching so much of the action.
