    Melissa + Haw Wedding = AWESOMENESS

    Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

    This was a wedding that was full of international guests around the world from Australia, Indonesia, Norway, Canada and Malaysia too. Not forgetting the huge Hummer being used as a wedding car. Pink colored ribbons on a black testosterone car, IMAGINE that! hehe. The car belong to the bride’s brother and he said it will be the last time it will be decorated pink. There is individual wireless headset for each passenger to watch their tv or play games.

    Wedding ceremony was held in Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Kota Kinabalu. The church was really classical for a wedding setting. Both of them work with Sabah Tourism. Love the video trailer that they did just like the HP laptop advertisement on their childhood montage moments. Groom is a graphic designer and jam with his friend through his passion with guitar.

    Thanks to Anna-Rina for allowing me to tag along this shoot and she is an amazing photographer as well. Do check her website out as well when you are free.

    Check out the shots I did for the day!

    Well that’s all for now.

    If it’s raining outside, should I shoot?

    Friday, June 11th, 2010

    My first section on photography tip. A question that I googled before myself when I was still new in photography. I always worry what will happen to my gears. Here are some of my real life encounter. Hope it helps you when you see dark clouds out there.

    It has been raining cats and dogs this month and it has not spoil my mood to shoot at all! I will just wait it out as I always believe before and after a rain is always the best time to shoot portrait sessions or sceneries. Why? Cause it has blue sky, fat clouds with yellow sun appear behind those clouds which can cause more dramatic sky than any normal day. I just assisted George Yong again today for the 3rd time showering under the rain with Nikon D300, D90, Flashes and Lenses wet under moderate rain. The kind that really wet the whole gears and us as well. We just need to trust our equipments and Nikon did a good job under the rain. Bring another umbrella just to protect some of the lens that you not yet ready to shoot.

    One tips that I want to share with you all is make sure after the raining shoot, wipe your gears and use blower and wipe again. Then keep in an air conditioned room if you do not have a dry box to keep in. Just be careful when you wake up don’t directly take out your cold camera out of your room as it can cause condensation. Leave it in your camera bag and let it acclimatized to outside room temperature before use again.

    You know what, the sunset or the sky are even more dramatic after the rain. We just need to persist and believe that there is always hope. Remember guys, if you see those dark clouds do not keep away your cameras. Just drive out under the rain and reach to your destination. You will never know what silver lining is waiting for you.

    *ps- the shots below taken with my wet iPhone too ;)

    See how the colour changes in one sunset!! From yellow to purple to blue. No editing at all.

    p/s- My first Sony W-1 Compact Camera Died because I used it under the rain in the jungle. So it all depends on your camera models and lenses durability against rain drops.

    Recently engaged?

    As some of you understand, I offer few Creative Session portraiture shoot in Melbourne, Australia for this coming month and next. I’m so excited as the date is coming so near. I’m also afraid of new environment but afraid is a good thing cause I’m coming out from my comfort zone and I just need to focus what I do best and not my weaknesses.

    This Creative Session is not only for students but also very suitable for engaged or dating couples who thinking to have a casual shoot or even a beautiful pre-wedding portraits are most welcome to engage me. E-mail me at kagewong@gmail.com for a quotation for Malaysia or Australia. I already did a brochure on the Australia package pricing on this blog and also on my facebook page.

    I’m also ready for hired if you are engaged and you need a good looking guy to capture your ‘happyness’ in your actual wedding day.

    Just a sweet reminder in case my readers do not know, I will be leaving to Melbourne Australia this month on 23rd June 2010. Some of my friends thought I already left and came back… So sad :( I don’t blame you all. Must be my previous brochure was too cluttered with pictures.

    Phew, month of May i has been busy with two overdue wedding albums printing and thanks to RedNinja Camp I’m enjoying a privilege discount! Clients need to understand that the fee they pay a photographer is not just inclusive of the wedding day or pre wedding day itself but also the post processing time and time to design album dedicated to ensure my clients look great. Saying thank you or showing your appreciation is greatly needed to your photographer. Hehe.

    Completed my church staff portraits which is an opportunity by buddy Melvin for such good offer. Shooting and editing for portraiture is not easy as we are trying to please everyone instead of husband and wife only. Phew, glad I did it and another point for coming out from my comfort zone. Helping out a bro George – Jofanna Bridal in his occasion pre-wedding shoots. Talk about sunburn and mosquitoes bite during the portraiture session with the lovely couples. Shout outs to you both.

    Our church is also going for GCC new auditorium dedication celebration. All church photographers are on stand by and we attended rehearsal on how the program will be. If you are interested, join us at 5th June from 3.30pm for high tea and proceed to dedication at 5pm.
