Wu Do August 2018

19 August 2018

Thank you Uncle Victor for organising this event and for the lovely meal .

It's great to be able to catch up with all my relatives and find out what michief they have been up to.

The reason I took so many photos was that I bought a new camera and a few lenses to go with it. I was trying it out pretending that I was in a foreign country surrounded by Asians as per my usual destinations.

Also for fun I have added this to my website in a similar form to all my other photo studies.

I do a lot of none posed candid style photographs and I was testing whether the camera was responsive enough to catch the "decisive moment"  -it is ......  Sorry Roger.

Look forward to the next Wu Do, if I am around ......and invited ?

Flashback......Darryl and Wendy's wedding 30.06.2012

20 August 2018

The 20th, PAYE day, the day I live for every month...

After posting the pictures above, I got thinking (and thats a strain these days), wouldn't it be nice to have some other Wu photos on this page. I do have negatives somewhere of grandads first visit back to China in the 1980s. I was working in Hong Kong back then when Mum and Dad took Grandad back to the Village. Also accompaning us was Uncle Albert from Dads side. Apparently Grandad and Uncle Albert had there disagreements and Mum had to be the peace keeper. Scanning negatives takes time and I  don't know the techniques so I put that idea aside. But I did have digital photos of another one of Harvey Wu's son and since I embarrassed one of them why not another?  

2012 is a long time ago and photographically I have  come around a full circle. For Darry's wedding I was using an Olympus OMD  EM5 which had a 4/3rd sensor. After a few years of using the camera I sold it with all the lenses at a great loss. I was frustrated with the small sensor, noise levels, lack of colour information and the handling of the camera.  So I didn't have a portable camera and relied on my full frame (heavy) system which you see I use for all the photos on my public website.

However recently I was convinced by Ken at Photo Warehouse that I check out the Lumix cameras as the sensor technology had improved over the 6 years - I didn't believe him.  But after playing around with the professional, waterproof, bombproof version of the camera-the G9,  I was hooked.

 Still a noise problem so not as good in low light but everything else about the camera is good. Considering the lighing was pretty  bland at the Wu Do the colours came out pretty good I thought.

So what goes around comes around (again).

Looking at the photos Of Darry's wedding after 6 years I'm surprised how good they look. This is partly because I have recently seen some very bad professional wedding photos  and the brides family are very disappointed. But for me to get the colour and contrast  out of the Olympus sensor I had to squeeze every pixel very hard to get the last drop of colour. Its like getting juice from dry oranges. Now with my new camera the oranges are fresh.

8. I'm not normally a fan of selective colorisation but I feel this one is not as corny-like the red rose with a black and white background.

When you look at the people in the mirror it gives a photojournalistic quality to the image.
