F 15 - RSAF Open House 2011

Posted by Ziren (Singapore, Singapore) on 2 June 2011 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Open House 2011 was held from 28-29 May at Payar Lebar airbase. There was an air show which demonstrated how the RSAF would respond to hostile aircrafts infiltrating into Singapore airspace, and not to mention there were displays of aircraft such as this one, which are actually still in service. I took three shots with AEB and processed them in Photomatix, then I did some tone adjustments in Lightroom. Hope you enjoy it!

I am Ziren Wang, a student from Raffles Institution, Singapore. I picked up a camera in January 2009 in my school's photographic society, and I have never looked back. Years later, I have explored various different forms of photography, from event coverage, to fashion, to documentary, to photography using DIY lenses, and most recently, to film.

I must thank my seniors who have been so instrumental in developing in me a passion for this art. It has been said that there are two kinds of teachers: one gives the man the fish; the other teaches the man to fish. I believe my seniors are of a third kind: they have made me want to fish. They have imparted me with important technical skills, but they have also inspired me to continue photographing for six years.

"To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt." -Susan Sontag
