Going black and white?

Yes and No. Yes because i feel that sometimes color in a photo distracts the viewer from the real message of the image. No because some images are purely amazing in color. But i shall be doing a lot of black and white photography posts, as much as the client is going to get their images in color, unless they’ve requested otherwise.

The photo-session for this wedding happened after the reception. After this experiences i learnt it’s better that way as the shoot goes smoothly without rushing it.

Better yet, the four o’clock weather onwards is usually perfect. There’s no worrying about harsh shadows at all.

This was my best photo-session this year. It was organized, not rushed one bit and had a director to it. No time was wasted at all.

The focus then shifted to the bride and groom. Enjoy 😀

So i was playing with my lights in the studio and struck gold, so i think. I love my photos to have a certain dark mood to it. To be honest i had tried to achieve this for a long time, but i did it. I can’t wait to do shoots from tommorrow using this light set-up.

It’s bound to come off pretty dark if your monitor is not well calibrated. Stay blessed 🙂

Power Couples

I have a confession to make. Errmm…well…I love doing couple shoots. I bubble with excitement within when i get to do one.

I have mastered the poses for couples. It’s one of those shoots i never struggle at all.

They are a stark reminder that love is alive. In this day and age,love in relationships seem to have taken quite a  different direction but such shoots just provide the desired feel. Anyway, enough about my lecture on love.

So, in my current fashion, i decided to do a blogpost on the different couple shoots i’ve done this year, thus the variation in lighting.

Some of these couples are engaged while others are married. For example, the couple below got married on saturday. I wasn’t able to do their wedding as i had already been booked by another client though i would have really wanted to.

I already have some more ideas in mind for future couple shoots. I want to take a different direction on this as i have realized i have a niche with couple shoots.

Okay, enough talk.
