Mixer Stress Test

Posted by chanxj on 06 Aug 2008 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

One reason I have always loved Mackie mixers can be seen from this video. Its a pity brand Y didn’t survived though as I also like it as much as Mackie. I personally never even trust brand B ever though. :)

note: any people who do enough live sound will be able to figure out what brands they are talking abt. Brand A is a giveaway though.

Time – Lack of it

Posted by chanxj on 15 Jul 2008 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

For now i’m rushing out school assignments, so any updates here will be minimal for a few weeks. Once i am free, I will write a little about my Imagine Cup Journey other than day 1 :)

The reason for lack of updates in Paris was actually due to a packed schedule, and the internet not working when I wanted it to.

Extraordinary Out of Ordinary- GEMS TRDP Tutorial 1

Posted by chanxj on 11 May 2008 | Tagged as: Photography, Thoughts, Uncategorized

National Museum of Singapore-Where History Survives

I took this photograph at the National Museum of Singapore. What I wanted to portray is that in Singapore, it is extraordinary that old buildings can blend in with its new surroundings as the country prospers. The building may just be an ordinary one, but what happens is that it blends seamlessly into its current surrounding, and that is due to the hard work and thoughts put in by the architect during the design process. The composition technique used behind this photo is the rules of thirds, triangle technique, and the use of Blank Space. The shadow of the new building and the old wing in the photo gives depth to the picture. In this photograph, which is also the National Museum, I wanted to show that the architect made extraordinary use of clean lines and curves to shape the building. Futhermore, the use of glass panels gives the building a grand and magnificent look in the night. The composition technique used in this photographs is leading lines and patterns. The pathway for vehicles  and the cylindrical curve of the building guides the viewers towards the drop off area where lights light up the building in the night.

Singapore Polytechnic – The common staircases

Buildings in Singapore have many thoughts put in during the design process, but many people fail to appreciate the though put in by the designers in enhancing the buildings feasibility while not letting off in the design section.

This picture is actually that of the air vents of the stairway in Singapore Polytechnic. What amazing is that the architect thought of using the vents as part of the building design, and at the same time allowing light and air into the interior of the building livening the otherwise boring and stale stairways.

Composition technique used here is actually the Triangle technique. At the same time, the perspective was chosen to give a sense of depth to the picture by making use of the lines to allow the picture to show the continuous lines.

Some other aspects people always miss out is actually what the interior designers of the buildings have done. Over here, the wall has been painted with blocks of colors to liven up the place, where especially at night, where a blank wall coupled with dark lighting will give a ghostly feel.

Composition technique used here was the use of repeating patterns.


In my life other than my family members and friends, I have three other loves

1st love:


Music plays a large role in my life, although its not a subject i study. I love to sing, and play the piano. In primary school, i had been in the chinese orchestra as a percussionist, and in secondary school in the choir. I also play the piano.

The use of the piano as the foreground here has two purpose. One is to add depth to the photo. Next, to show my love/interest in music.

2nd and 3rd love:

Photography & IT

In this photo, I wanted to show that i am frequently in front of the computer(if not out having a life or photographing) , either post processing my photographs or doing IT related assignments as part of the course I’m in.

I used the screens to partly illuminate my face to give the mysterious feel, as in the cyber world, people seldom get to see my face.

These two photos were self taken with a tripod.
