    How I know this is from our tea ceremony because we can't see our faces?
    How come you shoot my most hated auntie like that and you didn't do it for my mum?"

    if you are the main...tell people to move out of the way...if you are the backup...help move people out of the way for the main..thats my advise...

    dun let the people around you take control...you should make your stand...get people to stop blocking you...
    thats true, end of the day if u cant produce decent pix, the couple will not accept the excuse that their relatives were blocking you.

    Buang, if u got a client like that, it's because u haven communicate with them. I tend to show my clients how i do tea ceremonies, ie, i shoot from all angle. Down, top, side, back etc.

    Seriously, i find tea ceremonies the hardest to shoot.
    Point to note is that , i seldom see any photographers post any good tea ceremony pics.

    what i do is that for the parents, base case is a nice posed shot whereby everyone pause and look at me and smile.( or any other impt relatives that die die must capture). For other relatives, i go journalistic style and shoot anything...truth be told, other that mums and dads and the favourite aunt, ur client dun really care much about capturing all 4 faces all at once.

    Ok.. I was exaggerating.. Yes. Communication and understanding the customer's needs are very important.

    Maybe not many photograhers have permission to post those photos.
