Still Alive

By Imran / February, 16, 2010 / 16 comments

My photoblog went offline last February. It was then hosted on a friend of a friend’s server. For reasons only known to him, he went MIA and we couldn’t get hold of him through the usual channels. Curiously, the site came back online last September but only for a few days. By then I was at wit’s end and the thought of starting all over again was too daunting to even think about. A few days ago, out on a whim I emailed him. Surprisingly, he replied and after a few exchanges he brought the site back up again. I managed to retrieved the essential files and migrated to a reputable datacenter in the States where it is now hosted.

Thanks to the many who asked. Sadly, I don’t have much to post even after the long hiatus. I do have plenty of commissioned works but I’m hesitant to put them up because it just doesn’t fit the personal nature of this blog. That said, I’m just glad that it’s back online again for good, so I will try my darnest to post regularly.

Also, you may find me on Facebook as I’ve started to use it more often now (Yes, I’m rather slow in these whole social network thingy). I’ve uploaded a selection of the blog’s photos in an album as I think it’s great platform to share information. Tutorials are something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time, so if you got something to ask.. e.g how an effect was achieved, where was a photo shot, equipment used, etc.. just fire away over there. Most of the techniques are outdated by today’s standards I guess, but it could a be great starting point if you are new.

Hazmee helped out in this fun shot. We had to rush because we were more keen to capture the magic hour scene that was fast approaching than me scrawling words in the air with a torchlight.

Have a great year ahead.
