2010-06-14 Need to shoot in common/popular locations ??

Embarcadero , Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge ... you won't feel any any surprise on the above photo shooting locations, they are probably the most common locations wedding couples do their engagement portrait. Well, for me, I will never try to shoot the same thing again and again just to get the job done. If I go the same location, I'll push myself to be even more creative in the shoot. The following images for one of my nicest couples Charity and Jay who are getting married in August this yr. Thanks for trusting me all the way !!

Here is the sneak peek slideshow for them : <<<<<<

Continue the last post .....

I just love posting my images in a bigger format so that you can enjoy the quality of every single image . we all use ridiculously high resolution camera for the wedding shoot, why not showing them bigger .

Feeling very refresh after this East Coast destination wedding shoot for Brandy & Blake in the beautiful Maine. Even tho I just came back from New York a month ago shooting an engagement portrait in New York Manhattan , I was so excited to be in east coast again . Love Love shooting in New England area, everything is so colorful , very fairy tale like. Brandy and Blake are both living and working in California, they choose to have the wedding in Maine , one of the reason was their home town is on East Coast and wanted to fly everybody in Maine to have a group vacation/wedding, so everyone was in Vacation mode.

2010-06-04 Digital Photography Beginner Workshop on 7/17

This year has been very busy so far as you can see from my blog posts and my schedule. But I still want to spend some time teaching and share my knowledge and 18 years of photography experience with those of you wants to learn DSLR. My upcoming workshop date has been confirmed , 7/17 Saturday . The class format and content will be same as the one I have before, 7 hours from 9:30 to 5:30pm with a lunch break. In the morning, we will go through theories and get familiar with your camera, after lunch, we will go outside to practice. I have a lot of tips to share with you, since it is an intimate workshop, you can ask whatever you want , about wedding shoot, about business, about how to get in to the industry :) Willing to share everything with you.

Photography needs a lot of practice and a lot of thinking behind, what I'm teaching you , is the fundamental things you MUST know to get it started, and most importantly is I'm going to show you a systematic way to practice, not just shoot a lot without purpose. When you get out of my workshop, you know what exactly you need to do with you camera and know what to practice to get better !

Do you prefer to spend months or years to try to figure out the features of the camera/lens by yourself or spend 7 hrs straight to get your hands dirty and ready to shoot some awesome images for your friends and family ??

2010-06-03 Wedding Shooting in East Coast This Weekend | Maine

Maine wedding photographer

This weekend will be shooting a wedding in Maine in East Coast, short trip, leaving Friday night and coming back Sunday.

I am the type of person that cannot sit still, I love shooting wedding in different places, different cities, and different countries. It gives me a lot of inspiration in creativity.

Is going to be exciting :)

2010-06-02 More images from the Fashion Shoot | White Petals

More images from the fashion shoot for Boutique White Petals . As you can see , I started using a bigger format images for my blog, I just want to see my images in a bigger size so that you can see all the details and appreciate the quality of the images.

When I did this fashion shoot, I didn't use any flash or reflector , all shot in natural light.

Actually on all the photoshoot assignments, no matter is wedding or fashion, I first select the location that with the best lighting , and then focus on how to position the model and interact with the models to get the best facial expression and balance of light in the images. This reduce my post production time tremendously, and thats one of the major reason you see me post a lot of READY TO RELEASE images pretty fast. I'm a photographer, not a photoshop junkie :)

And I also included a slideshow here for your to enjoy :) <<<<<<
