Seeing the Light


I had recently joined my first ever photo contest. Reason for such a long delay was of course I don’t think I am ‘up there yet’ and also, since young, I dread competitions. Any kind of contest can send me into panic-attack-mode. When I was younger (6yo) my mum brought me to a Lego contest, I literally froze there. Ended up building a sad little piece of wall.  I bawled when the results were announced. Naturally I didn’t win anything.

Okay grandmama story aside, I finally pluck up courage to join my first ever photo contest. It may or may not be a big deal but it certainly means alot to me.
I was obsessed with looking at the other entries. They are GORGEOUS!! =/

So here I’m, un-shamelessly advertising for myself.

People Choice as suggest is an Open votings. Doesn’t affect the Judges’s decisions at all, but its still awesome to get some Love & Supports !

So please click here -> http://seeingthelightcontest.com/bin/Rate?image_id=2002000181 to show me some support. (meaning vote for me lah)

A little bit about why this particular photo was chosen… Well its quite a old photo, taken over a year ago. It was during one of my first few shoot and it remains till date, my favourite piece of picture. I though it was particularly apt for the theme “Seeing The Light” since its mainly shadow-play. and oh also, this very shoot made me saw the light in so many ways.. In some ways, this shoot helped to shape OhDear!

I shall cross my fingers and pray my first ever contest gives me some kidda recognitions.

so please show me some Love and Supports kay. ❤

Jason & Elizabeth & Minor Morris 1000!

There’s just Something about vintage cars that are different from the new-generation of flashy sports-car. Given a choice, gimme an old motor anytime! Every scratch every peeled paint tells a story..

I had the real pleasure of shooting Jason & Elizabeth and what was MORE exciting was that they are gonna have the shoot with two very special cars.
A real vintage 1957 Minor Morris that was his Gramps’, passed down to his Dad.. and now its His.. aaaahhhhh!!! A real treasure. Ohhh also this very same Morris took part in this year’s chingay too. ;D

And along for the shoot came a Land Rover. It was my first time on a Land Rover and woah! its so Different!

Jason’s dad collect antiques and he bought along some old tv set, phone and a couple of other tinkers.

Filled with gorgeous Sunshine and real vintages, I present to you.. Jason & Elizabeth & Minor Morris 1000! Enjoy!

[Cinemagraph] – The Girl who Blinked

Here’s a peek from today’s session.. of a young couple, meeting and falling in love in NTU..


[Cinemagraph] – Winston & Michell’s Maternity Sneak Peek

a year back, I shot Winston & Michell’s Engagement.. so I was thrilled when Michell contact me recently to engage me for their Maternity Shoot.
its one thing seeing your couples walking down the aisle, but it’s another happy serene feeling when your couples are going to be parents! ❤

Here’s a Sneak Peek of today’s Maternity Shoot.. More coming up real real soon!!


Gerald & Adelynn – Mr & Mrs Bunny

I’ve been shooting for a year plus and at the start of every shoot, I still do get butterflies in my tummy. ‘will the couples be ok with this?’, ‘will i run outta ideas?’ ‘will i will i?’
So i was doubly nervous the morning I went out to shoot  Gerald & Adelynn, cause Gerald is a photographer too! You know he is watching and knowing what you’re doing. Haha. paranoid much.

But it turned out a breeze to shoot them (well apart from the rain that come half way)

I entitled them Mr&MrsBunny because they brought along a pair of bunnies (who have their own wedding suits as well, apparently hand-sew by Gerald. wooh!) and have similar poses to the Bunnies. cute max.

I love their outfit as well… because you see, outfit plays quite a large role in the result of the photos as well. well-though attire would bring out the best in Couples don’t they.
If you need some ideas (for the gentlemen), here’s a small sample list of Outfits for the Gentlemen  and also a small sample List of what Props to Bring.

Anyhow, here’s me presenting.. Mr & Mrs Bunny. Enjoy!

Cinemagraph – a noob attempt

The first time I saw a  Cinemagraph, i was completely captured by it.
The stillness of it captured in a frame , yet there’s something more..
there’s subtle movements within the still.

         “ Cinemagraphs are more than a photo, but not quite a video. “

Yes its slightly creepy, in a beautiful serene way.. and the tiny fact that im a harryPotter fan doesn’t really help here.
I was, you can say, totally obsessed with  Cinemagraphs.

and here’s my 1st noob attempt at it.. I promise I would work harder to make it better!!


Mitsuru & Stephanie – 幸せな結婚

The day shooting Mitsuru & Stephanie was so fun.
we climbed up to the railway track only to shoot afew snaps before it started drizzling.

So we went over to the Railway Station (which saddly is going to be history from July onwards. Noo!!) and the moment we stepped outta the car, tourist started wanting to snap photos with us! Hahhaa I was asked to join in too, most probably they though im so Japanese-Photographer. Heh.

I loveee how the photos turn out looking so SO vintage-Japan. Stephanie look so dainty doesnt she? ;D
For the second part of the shoot found us in casual, climbing trees and picking flowers.

So enjoy the picture peeps and I wish Mitsuru & Stephanie a very 幸せな結婚!!
