Former Miss Teen British Colombia was in Miri

Now in her twenties, Joanna was back in Miri over the weekend, since her last visit about 7 years ago. I still recall, she was way way taller than I was. Raised in Canada, now furthering her studies in Singapore for few months, it was good to catch up with an old friend again. During her short visit last weekend, Jenn & I spent the afternoon with her at Delifrance and then later we headed to Marina Bay for a short portrait session with the gorgeous one. The last shot (though there are many more) were taken at The Grand Old Lady atop 'Canada Hill' where the 1st oil was struck in Miri in the year 1910.

Also a Miss Teen British Colombia a few years back, you made us friends proud babe! Joanna, sweet of you to visit Miri again and took the time to spend the afternoon with Jenn & I. Wish it was longer. I bet Linzhi, Doris & Jiaren are envying you after looking at these sets. Look forward to hear from you soon yah. Hope you'll enjoy these selection of YOURSELF kay.

For all you fanatic viewers out there, my apology again for my long silence. I've been occupied with portraits lately and experimenting on some editing techniques. Enjooyyy!! ..

Jiaren said...

Anderson said...

(Joanna with the city behind)

Jia, here's the settings:
On the D300, due to low light , I increased the ISO to 2500, 50mm lens, Aperture at f/2.8. Light source was the D300 built-in flash only.

Anderson said...

Okay Linzhi..Deal! You bring me a T-shirt kay..hahhaahaaa.. jokin jokin.

Jiaren said...

50mm f/1.4 or 1.8? just wondering...

theres like virtually no noise at 2500! PP or straight out of the camera?

...did u read? with the announcement of the D3x Nikon also announced they are now the market leader in UK, US, Europe, and Japan with 333% in growth! take that canon!

Anderson said...

I look up the details based on the photo properties. If you view it closer, u can still detect some noise at the back. To me, tats noise.

Wooah!! Nikon's gone 333% Wild! Anyway, remain humble all you Nikon users out there...hahaha..(tat includes us too, Jiaren!)
