The previous day was also my first time to taste Carlsberg as well. Drinking in duty-free Langkawi is much cheaper than in Kuala Lumpur, where alcohols are levied heavily. I did not fell like drinking, when a bottle of Tiger would cost you 5 bucks.

    How does he like to start his day by the way?

  4. tumnei says:

    There is nothing in particular that he loves to start his day, but sometimes he loves to end his day with a can of beer. 😀

    Eh have you ever heard about the 50mm F/1.8 sweet spot? A range of aperture when you acheive the sharpest image. I’ve seen discussion all over flickr that it is some where between f/4 to f/8. I did notice that at f/4 the bokeh started to look pentagon, the effect of 5 aperture blades.

    It’s funny that it is not only a prime lens, but it is now a primary lens for me! I rarely took it of my camera.

  7. tumnei says:

    Yeah I know the sweet spot, thought I am not sure what is the sweet spot for my Nikkor 50mm f/1.8. However, most of the time I set the aperture wide open, as I want to have the blur affect, especially when I shoot in low light condition. I rarely use the built-in speedlight. Photography is everything about light, but I dun even know how to use speed light properly. :d
