Minister Jonah Goodwill is not unleashing Democracy but “Demoncracy”, it’s a new social order, an uprising of a something very special.

Exploring Scenes and Traveling with Star Wars Lego Toys!

The fun and adventure with my Star Wars Lego had been a pretty good start to A New Hope, from documenting and photographing my Star Wars Lego toys construction, it progressed towards a fun personal project with my Star Wars AT-RT, titled “Lego Star Wars AT-RT Goes Exploring!”, bringing out the AT-RT to locations in Singapore and taking photographs of the AT-RT exploring!

With the addition of the Star Wars Lego Snowspeeder into my collection, I was inspired by my AT-RT goes exploring and decided to create another fun personal project along with my AT-RT goes exploring with “Lego Star Wars Snowspeeder Goes Exploring!“. Therefore, I might be bringing out both the AT-RT and Snowspeeder out together to explore and take photographs of the Star Wars Lego toys exploring different parts of Singapore and different parts of the world (hopefully!).

In my earlier posts relating to Star Wars Lego toys, there were inspirations from photographers who were Lego and Star Wars fanatics and they produced some excellent scenes and composition with them! I observed their photographs, compositions and ideas for inspirations and ideas, along with re-collecting Star Wars movie I to VI trilogy scenes and planning on how I can produce/construct Star Wars scenes with the Lego toys right here in Singapore! Along with fellow photographer friend and also a Star Wars Lego fan, Marcus, we brought out some of our Star Wars Lego toys on a Saturday morning to do a “test shot” and create some of our own Star Wars scenes! I brought out AT-RT, Snowspeeder and various Star Wars Lego mini figurines while Marcus brought out AT-AT, Snowspeeder, AT-RT and Snowtroopers! Check out Marcus’s Lego Star Wars @ West Coast Park collection and my Star Wars Lego Scenes on Flickr!

Planning ahead into the near future, I hope to add a few more Star Wars Lego toys to my collection first, I am looking at the X-Wing, AT-AT and Millennium Falcon! While waiting to own my Star Wars Lego wish list, I am conceptualising future scenes for my Star Wars Lego along with my photographer and Star Wars Lego friends!

Star Wars 75049 Snowspeeder

When I re-started upon my chosen way, back into the good side of Lego, particularly Star Wars Lego collection, there was no turning back. It had been many fun and interesting adventures to build, photograph and document the Star Wars Lego construction process. Thereafter, producing my own Star Wars scenes with my Lego toys. From my Star Wars 75045 Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon, Star Wars 75044 Droid Tri-Fighter to Star Wars 75022 AT-RT, every Star Wars Lego toy carries a story, photography and documentation of their respective construction process.

I remembered watching Star Wars when I was a young kid and my first Star Wars movie was probably Star Wars VI Return of the Jedi, when I was young enough to understand and watch a movie! Like many others, we were mesmerised by Star Wars and still are mesmerised as of today. One of the scenes that I really like a lot was the Battle of Hoth in Star Wars V The Empire Strikes Back, the Galactic Empire AT-AT Walkers launching an assault on Rebel Alliance Echo Base and it was good to watch the fighting scenes between the Snowspeeder Rouge Group led by Commander Luke Skywalker attacking the AT-AT Walkers. When Lego recently released Star Wars Lego 75049 Snowspeeder and Star Wars 75054 AT-AT, I told myself that I wanted to get these 2 Star Wars Lego toys!

DSC00736

One day, I decided that I will add the Star Wars Lego 75049 Snowspeeder to my collection first and bought it at a bit of discount with my $20 shopping vouchers. While constructing the Snowspeeder, I finally have both the Old Republic and New Republic Star Wars Lego and I am looking forward to owning more of them! Inside my mind, I am planning some Lego scenes with my various Star Wars toys, with the future Star Wars AT-AT, X-Wing Fighter, Millennium Falcon! Oh, did I just said out my Star Wars Lego wish list?

DSC00753

I had already begun a small personal fun photography project with my Star Wars AT-RT Exploration, inspired by Star Wars Lego fans and other Lego fans (Lego Travellers was an inspiration!) when they brought out their Lego figurines/toys around when they went out or when they travel around the world! They are currently being curated on my Facebook Page – TanGengHui Photography and will be up on my Flickr Star Wars collection!

DSC00782

Keep a lookout here! Star Wars Lego scenes project with fellow photographers who are Star Wars Lego fans are coming soon! Combining our pool of Star Wars Lego toys (resources) to produce some interesting scenes and stories with our Star Wars Lego! May The Force Be With You!

Sony Reveals New Cyber-Shot Cameras and External Flash

Sony recently announced new Cyber-Shot Cameras and external flash to their line-up of cameras. They are the Sony CyberShot RX 100 II and Sony CyberShot RX 1R, that improved from last year’s impressive releases. There is also the HVL-F43M external flash that is compatible with many of the latest cameras and camcorders from Sony. The Sony RX 100 II and RX 1R builds on their predecessors and they are pretty popular among the compact digital camera users. Let me share with you more on the the new Sony Cyber-Shot cameras and External Flash.

Cyber-shot™ RX100 II

The new Cyber-shot™ RX100 II builds on the popular Cyber-shot™ RX100, with enhanced picture quality and convenient new features such as Wi-Fi and easy One-touch smartphone connection with NFC. The RX100 II possesses increased sensor sensitivity with 20.2 effective megapixel back-illuminated Exmor R™ 1.0-type CMOS sensor, delivering DSLR-style shots regardless of the shooting situation. It is also the first ever camera from Sony with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, enabling One-touch connectivity with Android smartphones and tablets. It even allows you to snap images remotely from your smartphone. The new RX100 II comes with a bright, detail-packed 3.0-type White Magic™ LCD that tilts up and down, giving users even more creativity when composing their shots. The new Cyber-shot™ RX100 II digital compact camera from Sony will be available at selected Sony stores and authorised outlets from August 2013.

Cyber-shot™ RX1R

Sony is bringing pixel-perfect picture quality to a whole new level with the introduction of the new full-frame compact camera Cyber-shot™ RX1R. The sister version of the image-powerful Cyber-shot™ RX1, the RX1R removes the optical low-pass filter (OLPF) found in front of the RX1’s sensor, enabling flawless capture of fine details without any distortions. This makes it ideal when taking landscape and other high-detail scenes. The camera’s compatibility with TRILUMINOS™ Colour technology ensures richer, more natural colours when viewing stills and video on the latest generation of BRAVIA™ televisions with TRILUMINOS™ Display. The new Cyber-shot™ RX1R full-frame digital compact camera from Sony will be available at selected Sony stores and authorised outlets from August 2013.
