About Emily


Blog updated every Friday.

Comments about feelings evoked and sharp criticism is welcomed, and much appreciated <3

21 year old from Singapore, currently studying dentistry in Adelaide, South Australia.

Besides capturing the little things normally unnoticed and making them refreshing, I hope to capture life and scenes that stir my heart.

Hugo Poon's biography:
"In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs..."

From the Sigma DP2 website/catalogue:
"Ordinary life – That’s where you get extraordinary photos. That glimpse of unexpected beauty on your daily commute, early in the morning or late in the evening. The subtlety of human drama encountered on a street corner. The dewy petal of a nameless roadside flower. As anyone who loves photography could tell you, those crucial moments can't be contrived. There's only one place you find them: the often overlooked corners of ordinary life. Your photos express your most deeply personal sensory experience. Your mental landscape."

American Beauty:
“… But it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.”

Photography Equipment

Panasonic LX-2: small enough, with enough control. i love it.

Casio EX-S100: my first camera. really tiny camera with certain level of control (EV shifts).

Sony Erisson K800i: 3.2mb camera phone. I have it with me all the time. Has the same mega-pix as my casio!
