Master photographer Aik Beng Chia a.k.a ABC, a fellow photographer friend that I had the honour to work with in a few photography assignments together. His photography artworks are widely recognised and well known, not just in Singapore! Aik Beng is one of the friendliest, a down to earth and humble photographer that I know.

I followed his works a lot on his Instagram, Aik Beng’s eye for things, details and photography are very powerful and sharp, he truly stands out along with the masters of photography. My photography style is a journalistic and story telling approach, I can relate to Aik Beng’s photography artworks.

Singkarpor, is a photography exhibition by Aik Beng. Singkarpor is about our home, Singapore. Through the eyes, heart and soul of Aik Beng, you can see and feel the life of everyday ordinary heartlander Singaporeans. Singkarpor is now held at K+, Scotts Square #03-14/15, till 4th October 2015.

LG G2 Mobile Photography Workshop with Aik Beng Chia

Mobile Phone Photography, a recent rise and phenomenon, with the availability and rapid expansion of the smartphone markets, camera, photography apps and social media connectivity that makes mobile phone photography easy to use, upload and share with friends and followers around the world. I had been an avid user in mobile phone photography, using my iPhone 3, 4 and 5 with my Instagram camera application and Here’s my Instagram account! While I am using iPhone for my mobile phone/street photography, there are other smartphone brands and models that have great capabilities too, for mobile phone and street photography!

There was a LG G2 Mobile Photography Workshop with Aik Beng Chia, one of my photographer friends that I know personally, worked with him before during a recent photography assignment together with a few other photographers. I was there to try out the LG G2 smartphone and also to support Aik Beng too! The LG G2 smartphone is is the latest flagship smartphone by LG Electronics, that pushes boundaries, setting a new standard in the smartphone industry and it promises to change the way we smartphone owners use our smartphones.

During the LG G2 Mobile Photography Workshop, we were given a quick introduction of the LG G2 smartphone and its capabilities by staff from LG Singapore. Thereafter, Aik Beng took the stage and shared with us about his mobile phone / street photography stories and techniques with the LG G2 and his workflow with the LG G2. At the end of the session, we had a hands on session with the LG G2 smartphone and testing it out around the meeting room located in Suntec City Convention Centre. I loved the rich colours 5.2-inch Full HD IPS (1080 x 1920 pixels / 423 ppi) of the LG G2 smartphone, along with the 13 megapixels and Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) technology inside the LG G2 smartphone, which frees users from the problems of taking blurred photos, allowing them to take clear photos in moving objects such as cars and trains. The super resolution of the phone also provides clearer and more detailed zoom quality. When we finished taking photos with our LG G2 smartphone, we were also able to try out LG portable NFC-enabled photo printer and printed out small mini photos for us to bring home.

Here are some photographs taken by Aik Beng using the LG G2
