THE POWER OF RINGLIGHT!

[RE-EDITED BLOGPOST]

Many of you have been requesting a blogpost of me showing you guys how do I take photos at home, truth is I have actually invested in a Ringlight to enhance my photos. 

FIRST OF ALL TO NOT CONFUSE YOU GUYS, THERE ARE 2 TYPES OF RINGLIGHT AND LET ME SHARE YOU MY EXPERIENCE ON HOW I WASTED MY MONEY PURCHASING THE WRONG ONE. 

Initially, I thought there was only one type of ringlight. I made my way down to Sim Lim Square and I was cheated for the mini-ringlight (below) for $150 which I checked online it was only $30. 

This is the portable one, let me state out the disadvantages.

  • It is not strong enough to take photos (light source is not strong enough)
  • Only can last for 45mins after charge ( though stated 2 hours )
  • You only can use manual focus, because it's too heavy for my lens

I'm not trying to say that this product is bad, but i think if you use this to take close shots, like food, other items it will be very useful. Especially doing advertorials on items like if you wanna take close shots la! But also didn't regretted getting this. Anyway look at the one below


Exclude the camera and the tripod. I got this LARGE ringlight at Funan for $150. Inclusive of the camera stand. It's freaking GORGEOUS. (Updated 2013: Sim Lim sells this at $90 now ) 


Now I got 2 ring lights at home, I don't have to worry having ugly photos. LOL
The benefits when you have a ringlight at home:
  • Sharper photos
  • Clearer photos
  • You don't have to worry if you are taking shots at night...
  • The super chio, eye effect ( Main purpose of me getting the ringlight )
  • You can play around with the lighting and trust me the photo will look good no matter what.

Here are some photos I took last time using my ringlight, now I'm very lazy to take photos now unless if there is an advert that requires me to take photos! Hahahaha! 


WHY NOT INVEST IN A RINGLIGHT TODAY? :D

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…
