honest and very human compo.
Thank you flinchy for sharing Todd Johnson's website.
I don't understand something he mentioned in his philosophy. He mentioned hand colouring and infrared, what were those two methods he used? Is it some colur editing that can be done in PS?
A classic case of "the grass is greener on the other side". Some westerners are floored when they see a local Malay or Indian wedding. Even a traditional chinese wedding has plenty of opportunities.Originally Posted by FLiNcHY
Yes, much of the action is in the house. So what ? A good photog can make opportunities out of any situation. Want more color ? Do a stop at a local temple. But most locals don't. Why ? Coz they see temples all the time and it feels boring. As boring as a church to a Westerner.
Likewise, the American wedding you see in the pics occur also in the house and in a church. To the average American, he will also think "house and church. So what's the big deal".
It's the way you see things that makes the diff.
Sorry i cant name them off hand. Was at a friend's Bridal shop when i saw them. Maybe you wanna pay her a visit? She does very fine gowns and her photographers are top notch. Go see the portfolios yourself. Reasonably priced too. I particularly recommend the 2 photographers that did Irin Gan's wedding. Ask to see them. She did the gowns for her.Originally Posted by innovas1
Anyway her shops name is Margarets Bridal located at ground floor of Ginza Plaza in Clementi. PM me if you need her number.
Wkcheah : Please dont get me wrong. This Todd fella is good without a doubt. What i am saying is some local photographers are really really good as well.
heheheheOriginally Posted by FLiNcHY
yah...nothing special. in fact i dun find the American wedding any special too.
tried japanese wedding?
OT a bit...
but for me, being a chinese, the tea ceremony is one of the remaining chinese traditional wedding procedures that we know. as like you've said, we're becoming more westernised, maybe in the next few generations to come, our decendents may not even notice they're chinese at all....how sad...
as for photography opportunities, i agrees with chriszzz...
nobody bother abt my question? haha...Originally Posted by ordinaryless
Yes it is. Wasn't it mentioned in the philosophy section?Originally Posted by ordinaryless
hey! i like the overseas example much more than the local ones u have given..Originally Posted by Ninja
I like especially the portrait of a son and his mother..
oh.. thanks but i already signed up with a bridal shop 4 years back.. Its impossible to get the 1000++ deposit i placed with them. I heard that the shop i signed up with, is going to close down..Originally Posted by Twilo
I am only looking for a photographer who can do ROM and also actual day event.. No more bridal shops for me.. I regretted signing up for their package, most of the stuff they offered FREE to me is no longer available. How can they do this to me?! It was quite difficult to escape from those bridal shop salegirls who did the promoting at various shopping centres.
heh tt's y my gf and i never hold hands when walking near their booths... to minimize being approachedOriginally Posted by innovas1
one thing i dun understand is that. hw does he (this photographer featured) get pictures of such colours ? it looks like slides to me.

You have absolutely no clue what you are talking about, young man.Originally Posted by FLiNcHY
You putting the American flag on your Pbase gallery shows what kind of mentality you have.
I have NEVER seen an American displaying a Singaporean flag, regardless of where he is.
Wait till you graduate and you will find out just how welcome you are in a foreign country and good luck finding an employer who is willing to sponsor your H-1B visa. School is just like in la-la land, everything looks better on the other side of the pond.
Your comment earlier on best possible price in Singapore clearly shows your lack of wedding experience. Weddings in SGP cost tens of thousands of dollars, FAR more than most weddings in the U.S. While your "absolute" best dress idea seems to be suit and dresses, Singapore happens to be a tropical Asian country, not everyone owns a suit.
And you summed up your post with that contradicting cliche line of million dollar wedding
when all this while you are saying Singaporeans don't spend enough on decor??
"Something special" has everything to do with the wedded couple, and nothing about you, the photographer. If you can't find that "something special" moments to shoot, you fail as a wedding photographer. If you are looking for what is "eye candy" to your ideal American church and backyard setting, maybe you should go marry an American, if you can find one who thinks you are "Westernized" enough.
We will let time be the judge of what I posted here, and see what you do for your wedding next time. Seems like your first few years in the U.S has really gotten into your head. BAAHHHhh, kids these days...demise of Singapore.
kind of a big hat,
thats not PJ style.
anyway, if u have seen more wedding albums,
u will find that most of our photogs
do it the PJ way,
for most of the shots anyway.
me, i m too the
best wedding photographer of the seah family, EVER!
