About

This photography related blog is maintained by Young Koh, a graphic designer and a user interface programmer. I am not a professional photog, just a enthusiastic photo hobbyist. I’ve been shooting 35mm film since 1983. I have shot with the half-frame Olympus Pen E, Canon T-50, Canon AE-1, and Canon A-1. I have studied film developing and dark room photo processing. I currently hold an honors BA degree in graphic design and advertising art.

I currently shoot with the Nikon D90, Canon 20D, Canon 1D Mk II, Samsung NX100, and Panasonic Lumix GF2. The Nikon and the Samsung are two of my favorite cameras. This blog is mainly about experiment with photos as well as the equipment. Most of my experiments are relatively low budget. No high-end equipment needed. Experiments include mix and matching lenses and camera body beyond the commonly known combination including DIY lens mount modifications, some cheap lighting tricks, and budget macro photography. Interesting thing about photography is that you can have lot more fun the less you spend on equipment.
