Metrophoto and StephTan which serves as inspiration to me. The dramatic pictures, the faces and expression and every stories that pictures tells about wedding captured my inner being which eventually strengthen my interest contemplating to do wedding photography in the future.
Early stage in this so called hobby, I’ve been in a wedding of hubby's friend twice with my nikki, not as a photographer but as a guest. Those were the times that I was still shy and hesitant to take pictures on such occassion. Looking back to the memories I’ve captured, I have decided to do a PP on few pictures that I have selected just to slake the interest and for my own satisfaction. I’ve been looking forward of capturing wedding memories in the future and I hope wedding bells are up for several friends and relative for the next coming years.
Here are few portraits I did, during Pearl &Tony’s wedding last August 2009, and Marianne & Jenesis’s wedding last September 2009.

Chasing the light but still on a tight budget. So while trying to learn, I did my first DIY portrait lighting experiment last night. I used one 11 watts lampshade and a gray umbrella as a diffuser and placed it on the side of the model. Though still struggling and the lighting was not good enough, I hope I did a satisfactorily job for this project.
Thank you to my model, who is always ready to pose everytime I ask her to do so. Im actually taking advantage of her stay here in KL. Constructive critism is welcome.

One weekend night, got myself busy experimenting with colours. A DIY softbox, a lampshade and a flower base as my subject. It was my first try shooting with a diy softbox and lighting. I just did a slight adjustment on curves to make the colors really pop up.
