(A continuation of en pointe part i)

Pointe shoes are easily my most favourite object (other than my camera) in the world - they make ballerinas look so... ethereal. Back to the pointe, I've always dreamt of owning a pointe shoe myself; sometimes I wish I'd learn ballet when I was younger... But I know I'll never be as elegant as these girls will be.

So! I've been working on more photos to show you guys - and not forgetting the short film which I'm supposed to get down to! The school term's gonna be starting again soon so expect a little more sporadic updates.

And of course, I remember that I promised a little print/curves giveaway (I'm still undecided) to thank you guys for your support for the Nuffnang thingamajig and as a little new year gift!

Till then, happy new year and I hope 2012 treats all of you with the best it's got xx

Behind the scenes: We were having this short break when a butterfly landed on Fionna's arm and it refused to budge for about 15 minutes. Lots of other (nature) photographers started crowding around her and she did cute little ballet poses for them. Love her spontaneity! She's also a ballerina from the local arts college! [1, 2]

Part ii coming up in a bit, stay tuned!

Hey guys! I'm back from the Nuffnang APAC Blog Awards (#NAPBAS) that was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, over the weekend. This is my massive gratitude to all of you who've supported me, sent me emails and nice comments my way, and even shared this blog with your friends during the voting period. Although I didn't win the award, I'm really truly blessed and lucky to have such kind people around me and to have achieved such a milestone for a mere 3-month-old blog! Being able to be a finalist/represent Singapore is just... such an honour, really. (I'm so bad with words) I wouldn't be where I am without you guys. Thank you xxx

Just in case some of you want to know, the winner for Hidden Gems is Googly Gooeys from the Philippines - congratulations to all the winners and finalists! On a side note, I really had a lot of fun on this trip, met a couple of new friends/bloggers - and a couple of them are really cool people! Also met the awesome man, Noel Boyd (who's a host for Haunted and Tattooed on R3LOAD Network) and am arranging a shoot with him very soon! Can't wait! :)

P.S. Some of you/personal friends might know I've just gotten the iPhone 4S and that I'm not a person who carries my camera everywhere so I decided to create an Instagram post, inspired by Annette Pehrsson (of cos' mine are nothing compared to hers)! If you haven't checked out her photos, go! She's amazing. You can follow me at @beautifuladieu although my photos are now private (which is kind of ironic, haha) and this might be my only Instagram post!

Also, thank you for the overwhelming response to my previous series, your comments make my heart smile :)
& Just in case I don't make it in time, have a blessed Christmas, all of you xx

You must be wondering about the irrelevance of the candle/cover to the series... but it was actually used more for filming (as I mentioned in my previous post)... which I haven't gotten down to putting together - just so much on my hands now! I have so much great photos for this series I want to show but I always have a problem trying to choose the best few! I know most photographers go through that too. :p

Anyway, do check out my new page [Street Walkers by Beautifuladieu]! It's a little project where I take photos of good lookers/dressers on the streets of Singapore! I'm still building it up and seeing what else I can do with it. If you'd like to be featured/have any suggestions, drop me a mail or leave a comment!

On a side note, am leaving for KL tomorrow for the Nuffnang Blog Awards (for which you kind people have voted for my site, thank you so much!) Mwah see you all soon xx

(First shoot/video with the 5DMII - I call him Chase!)

Just a couple of stills/outtakes from a short film I did for one of my school projects last term. In case some of you are wondering how this has anything to do with studying in a business school, this was for a "Creative Thinking" class where it was left up to us how we wanted to present our final project. So I thought, why not a short fashion film?

The film for the assignment was done more during the first shoot but I've also taken some other videos (and photos) during the second shoot to compile it into a personal one for the blog/portfolio and I can't wait to show you more of the photos from there! Shout out to my lovely girl and the assistants who helped me out for this project: Thank you!

On a side note, my vacation has been nothing short of productive, and I've had some really awesome shoots that I can't wait to get down to editing! How's December treating all of you? xxx
