    Default Large Format Group isn't a dream anymore

    Large Format Group in our island is not crazy


    Starting a Large Format group at this time,
    is it possible? Ya! I'll just do it.

    I'm trying to start a large format group to meet on a regular basis.
    Would like to meet perhaps once a month at a
    different location for a half day or even a full
    day of photography.

    I'm keen to explore areas such as Joo Chiat, Tanjong Rhu,
    Spottiwood Park, Clementi, or the Singapore Yosemite, etc.

    Similar to a guided photo outings except everyone
    learns from each other.
    If interested kindly let me know through this
    thread.

    I'll let everyone know the first location/time/date/meeting place.

    __________________________________
    The question of why use a large format
    has been repeated hundreds of time.

    Why use a large format camera?

     Evident in the quality of the finished product
    and the choice of most landscape photographers
     Multiple formats -
    a 120 roll-film back allows for the convenience
    of using roll films or 35mm film with a
    35mm SLR body.
     Lens and Back Adjustments
     Revolving back
     Accessories

    Jed please join us and be active
    in the group when you are back in Singapore.

    Our island needs a lot more passionate
    photographers with sound philosophy and
    outstanding leadership qualities.

    All active, pro-active and even those
    intending to be active again can join us.

    __________________________
    We always find ourselves learning everyday
    from each other.
    To me that is the surest way to progress
    which is also an anti climate to our
    outstanding born ego.

    The technique of really waking up
    aspirising photographers.
    Can we argue that all of us should help
    to sink in this important concepts of having
    world class photograhers in this island?

    Plenty of opportunities for
    keen passionate photographers.

    Red Dawn, you can join us too
    I can see you will be one exciting
    photographer in the near future
    because you know what you are doing.

    There is a ladder to climb
    You will be a more complete photograher
    once you know more about large format cirriculum
    and its many enlightening enjoyment.

    The world has a place to recognize both
    the 35mm format as well as the large format
    photographer. It is better to get your feet
    wet in both, especially when you are
    in the foothill of masters like Ansel and Richard Averdon.

    So you start with HCB, imitate him and move on...

    ____________________________
    To set up a database of photography
    knowledge what is your first step?

    Have passionate sincere photograhers
    to guide you through the entire excercise.
    If they let do it wrong, let them catch
    the mistake and make the correction.

    Yes indeed, please tell us where
    the SG Yosemite is. I'm sure it will be
    an interesting place for us to visit and see
    and of course, to take photos there.

    CK is waiting for the news of the location
    with much excitement and anticipation.
    I am sure he is not alone, for I as well,
    along with others, eagerly await your tale.



    PS. I am glad you are starting this club,
    large format photographers are a much neglected group,
    hopefully your initiative will increase awareness
    and give large format photography the recognition it deserves.

    I'll continue
    to up this thread
    until we find out
    where Singapore Yosemite is.

    Then we go
    at the break of dawn
    to capture the glory
    of Singapore Yosemite

    Thumbs up

    The twenty two steps to seeing The Singapore Yosemite

    I found two true real photographer in Ckiang and YSLee
    and many others as well...

    From an article I read some years ago:


    1. That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

    2. That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you
    every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.


    3. That true friendship can continue to grow, even over the longest distance.


    4. That you can do something silly in an instant that will give you heartache for life.


    5. That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.


    6. That you should always leave loved ones with loving words.
    It may be the last time you see them.


    7. That you can keep going long after you can't.


    8. That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.


    9. That either you control your attitude or it controls you.


    10. That heroes are the people who do what has to be done
    when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.


    11. That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and still have the best time.


    12. That sometimes the people you expect to fire or kick you when you're down,
    will be the ones to guide and help and you get back up.


    13. That sometimes when I'm angry and knew that I have the right to be angry,
    but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.


    14. That just because someone doesn't applause you the way
    you want them to doesn't mean they don't accept you with all they have.


    15. That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences
    you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do
    with how many birthdays you've celebrated.


    16. That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.
    Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.


    17. That our background and circumstances may have influenced
    who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.


    18. That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean
    they don't approve or love each other And just because they don't argue,
    it doesn't mean they do.


    19. That two people can look at the exact same trees
    and see something totally different.


    20. That your life can be changed in a matter of seconds
    by people who don't even know you.


    21. That even when you think you have no more to give,
    when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.


    22. That your credentials on paper do not make you an acknowledge human being.

    As we go about trying to discover the forest and terrain
    in our beautiful cityscape like island with our cameras
    must we be so caught up and forget how we have
    come a long way to what we are today?

    ________________________________
    May I have the honour to invite both Ckiang and YS Lee
    for dinner to ponder over our passion in photography
    and discuss what we can do to contribute to our
    young community to think and grow rich unselfishly.
    We may soon bring the Singapore Yosemite home
    at dawn.

    Oh how I wait,
    with much abated breath
    The anticipation i hate
    with little patience I have

    The promise of the crowning glory
    of a glorious orange sunrise
    Rays of luminous light with furious fury
    Striking the distant pillars of Singapore's highrise

    Toy with us no longer,
    lest we rise in anger
    Where is this Singapore Yosemite,
    where can we find thee?

    Like the lost city of Inca,
    we look forward to you
    As we wait with our Leicas,
    Like archers fingering their yews....
