Batman’s History on the Silver Screen

Category : Uncategorized

Another bit of history following the evolution of Batman’s Logo

No other superhero has changed faces or directions more, for better or worse, than the Caped Crusader. Batman’s long strange trip through film is a tale of success, followed by a hellacious fall. But as Alfred would remind us, “Why do we fall,sir? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.” So, in anticipation of the Dark Knight here’s a history of Batman in movies. (Note: I will start with the first full-length rendition, 1966′s Batman: The Movie. You can check out the serialized big screen origins of Batman in this week’s Old Ass Movies.)

Nutella Snack and Drink

Category : Uncategorized

Ok…… this got my attention via Stumbleupon (you gotta love stumbleupon!!)

Ferrero, which produces Nutella, the world’s beloved chocolate and hazelnut confection, has come up with the Nutella Snack & Drink which is divided into sections containing: a serving of Nutella, bread-sticks, and some iced tea. Although this product was created at least 2 years ago in Italy, it has yet to reach Singapore. Lets hope that it comes our way soon!

But, if you’re in the US…the Nutella Snack & Drink is $3.25 at Buon Italia, Chelsea Market, 75 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10011 (212.633.9090).

10 Myths About Introverts

Category : Uncategorized

 

Just a little something that i’d like to share. No i did not write this, im just doing something i call “internet praphrasing” in other words, i copied it straight from the source. I consider myself somewhat of an introvert and i approve of this message 😀

I was lucky enough to discover a book called, The Introvert Advantage (How To Thrive in an Extrovert World), by Marti Laney, Psy.D. I feel like someone has written an encyclopedia entry on a rare race of people to which I belong. Not only has it explained many of my eccentricities, it helps me to redefine my entire life in a new and positive context. (more…)


Why a Good Logo is Important to your business

Category : Uncategorized

 

(screen shot taken from google images)

Do you often judge a book by its cover? We’ve often been told not to do so, but i guess in some contexts, we do it on a daily basis. While browsing thru a book/magazine store, most of us will be attracted to something that appeals to us. In a split second, we make a decision directly based on which design, graphical element or colour to pick up and browse through.

Now try and imagine if you or your business has a very boring or dull presence on the web (Im assuming your company is, since its the norm in this day and age, if not i guess even being in yellow pages needs something as eye-catching too) more often than not, a prospective client has just chosen your competitor for their business over you because of your company branding/logo. In some ways, it shows how much effort and seriousness one has in his/her company.

Seating at the edge of your seats yet? read on through then 😀

Shahrulazmi.com/blog is live………. again…..

Category : Uncategorized

 

Hello World!, yes yes…. i know. This is old news. I believe i started a blog section to my website waay back in 2008. Never got into it because the blogging platform i used back then isnt as polished as it is today. Add that to the fact that im no blog or web genius, and what you get is a stagnant boring blog.

Fast forward to 2010, ive migrated my old posts, to the current site and ive lost some comments in the process. Oh well, onwards and upwards!!
Took me abt 2 days to completely move everything over, to tweak the theme to be how i want it to look. Well, to the best of my knowledge anyway 😀

My dayjob is taking too much of my time right now and I will be updating as and when i can. Blog topics will revolve around the things that i like. Mainly anything Photography or Graphic Design related. Once in a while, ill include some behind the scene videos of my photography shoots, sharing my post processing workflow and so forth.

Feel free to gimme a shoutout via the comments or email if you have a question abt photography or design. Ill try to answer them to the best of my given knowledge. In any case that i cant do so, i’ll get a guest blogger with regards to the question being asked, to help with providing you with the best answer.

Thanks everyone!


Single light off camera lighting

As much as i love my skyports, bringing extra gear and setting things up can be quite a chore when i don’t have my own crew like Chase Jarvis or Annie Leibovitz. More often than not i usually get help from whoever is ard me at that point in time.

If im on a shoot alone and im not bringing that much light with me, i usually go with a 2 light setup (one sb800 and one sun, we only have one sun) but i’ll be leaving the Skyports behind for my ttl cable.

I welcome you with open arms

Category : Uncategorized

Well then, where do i begin.
Considering this is my first blogpost ever, i shall start off with a welcome message. It has been years since ive been needed to write and compose a message that does not require me to dial a person’s number at the end of it. Even my emails are usually very short 😀

I guess one good thing abt blogging is that it excersises the mind, keeps you on your toes. You’re always alert, it makes you think and remember what has been done during the past few hours. In fact i really really should start listing things down as and when i have something to share on my blog. Im sure it’ll make my life so much easier to construct proper sentences together. So if you’re a teacher, or a grammar nazi, feel free to drop me a line to show me the err of my ways……… with regards to my writing of course
