    Its the buyer responsibility to do his homework before handing out the cash to the seller. And is the chicken rice hawker licensed ? YES.


    licensing is simply require the candidates understand the all basic of his craftsmanship and be competent to do his job without any supervision, able to deliver satisfactory results to his customers consistantly, they may have to take some training or mentorship before they are given a credential.

    one very good example here is get qualifications from Master Photographers Association.

    although it is not compulsory for photographers to get certified, nor customers must hire a certified photographer.
    but the certified photographers will earn the recognition and respects from fellow photographers and customers.

    and for the customers will know they are not hiring "an uncle Bob trying to make extra pocket money during weekends for buying some L lenses" to shoot their "Once In A Life Time Event"

    the story of the love hate relationship between such brides and such photographers will never end, these brides love their pricing but love will turn to hate when their photos turn out to be very jialat.

    I find both of them are co-exist, when have this type of customers, then someone to fill their needs, and when photographers offer such pricing, they will attract such customers, in short, they are the prefect match.


    anyway, the bride receive some good gesture from some kind souls, a pleasant surprise and a happy ending I guess.

    in photoshop, there is this thing call Action, and this thing call batch processing,

    create some actions
    drag some files in to different folders,
    run the batch processing,

    than go down stairs lim kopi

    come up and burn all into DVD




    btw, do you know why some photographers like to use OMNI bounce flash through out the whole shoot even in broad daylight?

    so they can have a consistent white balance for all the photos, so they can shoot in JPG and have no color correction need to be done in the post.

    When photographer carry so many heavy gears, they will sink to the bottom of the sea

    They must carry life jacket or diving gears as standard equipment in case the bride decided to throw him into the sea

    I just saw the photographer's Facebook, Chua Siew Goh.

    He explained that he gave every photo (800+) of the wedding day and dinner to the bridal shop, which in turn passed them to the couple.

    He realised he should have removed the bad photos before giving to the bridal shop.

    In this case, its a silly mistake by the photographer. He should have only give the good ones to the bridal shop.

    I don't see any scam or cheating case here.

    The stupid couple also one kind. Purposely choose the bad ones and post them online. Why don't they post the nice ones??


    Its understandable that there will be many bad shots taken by any photographer, be it professional or novice.

    Who dare to raise hand and say he has never taken any bad shot in paid assignment??

    So whose fault is it and who you are trying to blame?

    曹操? 诸葛亮? or Sun Wukong?

    even when we go into digital photography, bridal shops ask the photographers to pick 300 photos and burn into CD for the customers. (just 300, noting more, noting less)

    if photographers can just dump all the photos to customers without doing any QC, he win liao lor.
    so can you imagine how the way he shoot in a wedding when his has this kind of mentality?
