A PINKWORK video of fashion brand AMENPAPA ‘s founder ~ Salina 粉紅貓無聊小短片

MEOW … just visited the new (her 1st) shop of human friend Salina who created the fashion brand “AMENPAPA“, a brand that blends God’s words with fashion… many HK & Taiwan pop stars wear her clothes, such as Sammi Cheng, Fiona Sit, etc.. Congratulation :mrgreen: … though a cat has no religion.

剛到訪人類朋友/服裝品牌創辦人Salina的新﹝首間﹞AMENPAPA時裝店 … 恭喜恭喜!﹝雖然貓是沒有宗教的 :lol: ﹞她說這是一個「聖經 + 時裝」的品牌, 一件件衫,就好像一頁頁聖經。該品牌也有很多明星、名人的支持者,如薛凱琪、鄭秀文等等。 … 喵。

PINKCAT ‘s food photography 粉紅貓的食物攝影…

Though I’m into portrait photography, recently I also shot some food photos and videos. Take a LOOK … 雖然一向影「」居多,最近也拍了一些食物的相片及小短片。去看看 … 喵。

* accidentally came across a “partially” purple corn cob, a mushroom in the kitchen and shot some photos … 廚房無意中見到幾條紫色栗米,顏色好靚,馬上拍幾張相 … 影開就影埋隻蘑菇 。

an “Art” Movie starring 2 Cats in a vintage store 粉紅貓古著店貓短片創作 (Olympus PEN)

I’m not a BIG fan of Olympus PEN, though many of my human friends are (especially those young girls). It’s the “Weekend Weekly” magazine editor told me she borrowed a Lite PEN (E-PL3) from Olympus and asked whether I was interested to take it for a 1-week trail. Why Not? Almost at the same time, one of my friends who runs a vintage Store in Central said, the lovely tiger-striped cat at his store just born 4 new babies. So I suddenly came across a funny topic for my column, that is “Using lite PEN to shot little baby kitten” !

I was not writing a camera review article, but I have to say here the “tilt screen” function of E-PL3 is very useful when I used it to shoot cats at very low angle (close to the ground). Its light weight and small size also made me be able to shoot photo or video with one hand. See, below are photos and two very short “art movies starring cats using this little camera. WOULD I buy a PEN? Sorry, don’t get the money … :(

我不是Olympus PEN的粉絲,雖然身邊很多人類朋友是,特別是女孩子。不過是上星期《新假期》的編輯跟我講,她剛向Olympus借了一部輕巧版PEN E-PL3,問我有否興趣借去玩一個星期。有新機玩當然無問題啦!同一時間,一個在中環開古著店的朋友說,他店內那隻非常可愛的虎紋貓生了小貓。於是我忽然想到以此作專欄題目,就是「『輕巧』PEN影BB貓」。

雖然不是寫試用報告,但真的要在這裡讚一讚此機的「可反80度角觀景屏幕」功能非常有用,尤其是以超低角度﹝貼地﹞拍貓時候。另外因為機身輕、細,我單手也可拿著相機拍攝相片及短片,另一隻手可用來打燈。看看,下面就是我用這部細小相機拍下的相片及甚有藝術味道的貓貓短片 … 會買這部機嗎?沒有多餘錢啊 … :cry:

Use Holga To Capture a Feeling 用Holga捕捉感覺﹝被攝人類HotCha, 今期專欄稿﹞

That should be the original title of my latest article in my column in this issue (630, p130~131) of “Weekend Weekly” magazine. Actually it means “feeling” towards the people (being photographed) and about a place (the shooting site) . The editor later changed it to “capture HotCha (name of this hk pop dance & sing group )”, well, I agree this new title is much more attractive to the readers. Though I’m quite good at shooting people, I seldom wrote about portrait photography … since I want to experiment with other interesting topics, like photograph food, animals, bugs, scenery … etc. in this column.

This time is special, cause the three girls@HotCha were so excited in front of my “holga” camera (never been photographed by a CAT before ?!), so photos came out are all so natural and fit this title … …

這原本是我今期﹝第 630期, 130~131頁﹞《新假期》專欄的標題﹝懶特別、虛無飄渺 :idea: ﹞,「感覺」是指對人﹝被攝者﹞及場地﹝拍攝地點﹞的感覺。雜誌編輯其後將之改成「捕捉HotCha」,又的確會更吸引讀者。雖然我經常拍攝人﹝類﹞,卻甚少以此做文章主題。因為想在此欄目試驗多些新鮮題材,例如影食物、動物、蟲蟲等等。

今次比較特別,因為HotCha三女在我的Holga鏡頭面前表現實在亢奮﹝因為未試過被貓影?!﹞,Regen當時臨別在即似乎也不太傷心。總之出來的相片很自然,反映現場氣氛,才想出了這個主題。

Regen@HotCha ‘s Farewell Message, superb funny ! 在粉紅貓鏡頭前的離別話。

want to hEAR/sEE this HK popular sing & dance girl group talking about their new EP album and a farewell message from one of the group members ~ Regen, who will go to Australia to study English and music for 1~2 years, you could touch the “pink” city ‘s link below.

HotCha (in Cantonese means “Hot Tea”) is a successful girl group formed in 2007, comprised of three young girls, namely Regen, Winkie, Crystal. They were all singing or dance competition winners. To date they’ve released 5 albums and won many music awards. What a surprise, Regen suddenly announced last month that she will leave the group for 1~2 years and go to Australia to study.

MEOW, pinkcat has never interviewed HotCha before, cause I’m more into electronic and new age music. I really want to include their voices and feelings in my city once I heard this news. Yes, pinkwork city is a new media artwork about interesting people! During the interview it might be easy to make them crying in front of the camera … well, for instance, keep asking them to say about their feeling, memories, etc..

I don’t want to do that, instead I want them to share more about their happiness from the past and expected happiness in the future ! So that’s why you would see this superb FUNNY video below. :P

粉紅貓從未訪問過HotCha這隊出道了五年多的跳舞組合的,因為貓的喜好較特別,比較喜歡古古怪怪﹝甚至沒有人聲﹞的電子及new age音樂。不過上月,成員Regen突然宣佈會於九月離隊一至兩年,就引起我這隻貓的興趣。因為pinkwork city本身就是一件關於「人」的新媒體藝術作品,對於那些有個性的「人類」特別感興趣 。

訪問時,粉紅貓也不想故意問她們的心情,搞喊她們了,反而想引導她們講些開心的東西,未來也可以是令人興奮的 … 所以大家便會見到下面那條極之玩野的短片 … 喇 … :lol: 想聽聽/看看她們親自講更多,可按下面的粉紅城市連結。

Ella Koon, “a Song wrote by myself…” 官恩娜「唔知粉紅貓會唔會 …?」

meow MEOW … HK pop singer cum actress Ella Koon just released her new EP album 《Take A Shine to》 and as usual (since she was a newcomer) I would do an interview with her, shoot some photos and a funny video. This time there is something special, inside the album has a Song wrote by herself. To sEE/hEAR her talking more about this, go to …

官恩娜又出新EP《Take A Shine to》了,一如以往﹝自她初出道開始﹞,粉紅貓都會走去跟她做訪問、拍些相片,包括正常的及Holga相、影一段無無聊聊了小短片。今次比較特別的是,EP內有一首歌《依依》,是她自己用結他作曲的。想看看 / 聽聽她講講更多,按下面的連結 … :idea:

Holga Food photo Experiment @ agnès b. café 用Holga拍攝食物相片實驗。

MEOW, special thank to agnès b. for allowing me to do the experiemnt at their café. I just told their PRs I (a CAT from pinkwork city) would like to do some shooting experiment using my Holga plastic camera at their cafe. They were so nice and asked whether they had to prepare some specially-made cakes for my shooting. Well, it’s not necessary cause the cakes on their shop are already very colorful.

You might question how could I use this plastic camera to shoot close-up or macro photo. Its closest focus lenght is 0.7 m! Of course my Holga have to put on a Macro or Close-up Lens (bought from Holga shop, just HK$68 per set). To know more about how I shot these photo, could see my article in this issue (624, p122~p123) of “Weekend Weekly” magazine. Yes, since the experiment result is quite good, I decided to write an article about this in my “Weekend Weekly” magazine ‘s column.

真的要多謝 agnès b.公關們的幫忙,原本粉紅貓只不過是通知她們,我打算在她們的銅鑼灣café內﹝貪那裡有黑白階磚地板﹞,用Holga塑膠相機做些「食物拍攝實驗」。「放心,我只用一些Lo-fi器材,佔用餐廳一小角落,絕不會騷擾到她們的客人的」當時我跟她們說。

誰知她們十分好人,還問我要不要特別製作一些蛋糕給我拍攝。當然不用了,她們店內已有很多七彩繽紛的蛋糕。你可能奇怪Holga最近的拍攝焦距是0.7米左右,怎可能用來拍微距或近距的食物相?方法是套上一塊在「Holga專門店」有售,只是HK$68大元的塑膠微距或近攝鏡片。

結果,出來的相片依然有Holga相的「原始」風味,所以決定在我《新假期》的專欄稿,寫這個主題。想知詳情,可看看今期﹝第624期,122 ~ 123頁﹞這篇稿啦。

my Articles about Holga/Lo-Fi photography in “Weekend Weekly” 《新假期》的專欄稿。

MEOW, I’ll write a series of articles about Holga & Lo-Fi photography in “Weekend Weekly“, a very popular Travel and Food magazine in Hong Kong. In this column they would invite different photography artists to participate and I might be the only CAT (not human) invited by them … my honor ! :idea:

粉紅貓會在《新假期》專欄寫關於HOLGA或Lo-Fi攝影的稿,得閒留意一下啦。該專欄他們每期會邀請不同的「攝影達人」﹝貓?!是唯一一隻 …真是我的榮幸 :D ﹞參與,所以久不久便會輪到我寫。下面是已出版的。

My first Holga Movie “Freedom of Laziness” (Trailer) !我用Holga相機拍的首套短片呀。

MEOW, some new stuff by PINKCAT, this movie trailer was shot by my Holga 120 plastic camera, of course I’ve to do some very low-tech modification. Details could be seen in my article in Issue 615 of “Weekend Weekly” magazine which is a very popular Travel & Food magazine in HK. ~~>  HOW to Shoot a motion Movie using HOLGA? 

It’s a trailer only, will finish this movie (art project) if I got some free time and find a “suitable human” to be the actresses and do the music for the movie. Special thank to Hina for her guest appearance in this trailer (though just 3 seconds). This girl is also a talented photography and painting artist. Actually this movie is related to my another creative writing project ~  Freedom of Laziness  !

粉紅貓又有新作品。對呀,Holga相機也可以用來拍短片的。當然要經過一些很low-tech的改裝。改裝步驟可於我在第615期《新假期》的專欄內看到 ~~>  用Holga拍短片? 

多謝Hina客串這條預告片的演出﹝雖然只出鏡了3秒 ﹞。這位中日混血兒本身也是一位攝影及繪畫藝術家,很切合影片的主題啊!遲些有空,又找到合適的人類當演員及為電影配樂 … 便會完成這套短片,喵,每次拍幾秒,可能要拍幾年呢。這「電影」其實是跟我的一項文字創作 ~  Freedom of Laziness  有關的,一個幻想出來的未來世界 ….

未來世界的某一日…
為何你們還要千方百計去證明自己對新世界有實質貢獻?那些精英分子已運用他們的智慧,為你們創造出享之不盡的資源。他們都很有教養,也不會看不起你們。你們生存的最大意義應­該是盡情享樂,努力做好你們的藝術家本份。某天你的作品被一些精英分子用高價買下來,到時,你便會沾沾自喜,稱呼自己為「精英分子」了!

one day in the future …
Why you’re so eager to prove that you have real contribution to this new world ? Now the machines created by the elites could produce unlimited resources for you. You need not do anything but simply enjoy your life or work hard to be a good artist. Those well-educated elites won’t look down on you either. One day maybe one of your artworks would be appreciated by them and sold in high price. At that time, you will name yourself an elite !

my book published by Kubrick 我的新書 / Holga人物相集!

MEOW, pinkcat@pinkwork™ finally wakes up … cause I’ve to introduce you my new book “I DON’ T KNOW THEM…” published by Kubrick. This book features photos of several tens of people taken using my Holga during the past several years, and lines of words which are seemingly related to these people but are actually just some feelings and thinkings “they” had brought me. The people in my book are pop artists, illustrators, poets, indie musicians, film directors, theater actors … etc, each has their own character … “I DON’ T KNOW THEM…” is now available at 2010 hk book fair, kubrick and many other book stores (may be after the book fair).

Kubrick, a publisher I like very much which is a cultural book store/cafe/publisher and also a very “popular” hangout place for many poetry and film lovers. It has also published books of many renowned film critics, music critics, poets … etc. … pinkcat suddenly become very cultural. “I DON’ T KNOW THEM…” is the first of its “life seeker” playable book series. Why call it playable ? Go to the book’s page and you’ll know the answer. meow MEOW … it’s a playable art concept … !

I haven’t seen the finished product yet, maybe this coming Friday I would squeeze into the very crowded book fair , shoot some real product photo and upload here.

pinkwork™粉紅貓終於都醒來了﹝貓都喜歡睡覺的﹞,因為要同大家介紹我的新書《I DON’T KNOW THEM…》,這是由我最喜愛的出版社Kubrick出 版的,它亦是一間文化書店/咖啡室/出版社及一眾電影與文學愛好者的熱門聚腳地。書內有我幾年來用Holga相機拍攝的人物相片,包括一些獨立音樂人、電 影人、插畫家、流行歌手、舞台劇演員等等,各有不同身份,以及一堆堆看似跟這班人有關的文字,其實是他們帶給我的一些感覺和相法。 此書會在2010香港書展、kubrick及其他書店有售。﹝其他地方可能要等書展之後﹞… 。

這亦是Kubrick的「life seeker」玩具圖書系列的第一本作品。為何叫它做玩具圖書?因為真的可以拿來玩的。看看下面的新書頁。喵,這是一個可以玩的藝術意念。

我還未看過這本書印成之後的模樣,應該是一本細細本,似玩具多於一本書的物體。可能星期五嘗試迫入書展,拍些實物相片post上來。

* 此書網頁還用了一種叫Augmented Reality 擴增實境的技術 ﹝此名稱無論中、英文相信都沒有人會明白,讀者將書內的黑色方格圖案對準你的電腦鎲頭,便會看到一些書內沒有的相片、小短片… 不過此頁還在製作中,快會跟大家見面 .. 其實早已整好了,只是嫌未夠得意,要略為改動。多謝Sun和Renatus兩位設計師幫我搞這些非常technical的東西 …你知啦,貓是很蠢的 … :-)
