Film vs. Digital – Moments In Time Ep 2

Film vs. Digital – Moments In Time Ep 2

Return to Singapore with me for Episode 2 of my new series where we take a journey around the world together, and share about photography, travel, people, food, experiences, and everything that happens between the frames I capture.

In this episode, we’ll pay a quick visit to one of my favorite street food stalls on Clarke Quay. Then, to beat the midday heat wave, we’ll head over to capture a stunning water feature called the Rain Oculus in one of the most beautiful shopping malls in the world–The Marina Bay Sands Mall. Here I break down some of the benefits of shooting raw vs jpeg, whether you’re shooting on your digital camera or smartphone device. After that, my director surprises me with a visit to a new location, Haw Par Villa, where I’ll be faced with a unique and fairly ridiculous photography challenge in one of the strangest places I’ve ever visited.

We’ll wrap things up overlooking Singapore Downtown, to shoot from the Peninsula Excelsior Hotel where my friend Edward Adios brings along a collection of vintage Fujifilm Film cameras and an assortment of film. Together we’ll shoot the sunset and blue hour cityscape, side-by-side using both film and digital cameras, before a visit to the film processing lab to learn the steps for developing positive film and ending with an amazing Flickr Meetup in the heart of Singapore.
