    As mentioned in my earlier post, shooting at f.20 allows me to step up if needed and yes, some ohotographers, myself included, do shoot at f.32. But for best details, find the sweet spot for your system/lens.

    Tough times comes to many, especially so when there's an economic downtown and when businesses are not as they used to be. We can't possibly determine the circumstances around us to be always favorable, but can most certainly choose how we respond to it. Some bros here have highlighted that honesty is the best policy -- coming clean with your actions regardless of the situation will enable others to gain trust in you, keeping promises as your word is your honor. Unfavorable business ventures and failings can take anything from you, but if you let it rob you of your honor and integrity; then you would have lost the most important thing; self respect.

    So, still no reply from Joseph Hong on why he accepted the images to pass to TS even when it contain so many dust spots?

    Mr. Hong, given that I've work with many art directors, stylist and editors, I find it strange that you, as an editor / managing director can accept images with so many spots, bad lightings and bad styling. In fact you find it so acceptable that you willingly pass it to your client as the finish product.

    As a professional, I would assume that you would have rejected it on the spot at the shoot or if you only see later, reject it and DEMAND a reshoot in order to protect your reputation as you were the one who recommend the photographer and stylist. As a professional with a reputation and business to protect, the above is the least you should have done, No?

    Mr. Hong did you get your fig. right? Perhaps you would like to explain least your own words implies that you're not telling the truth.

    On the second hearing at the Small Claim (Joseph did not turn up), the Tribunal, judge in my favor and gave Joseph (in writing) one month to pay otherwise I can apply for a bailiff to go to his residence in Bt Panjang and seize items to my invoice value.

    One month pass and I did not received any payment.

    I decided not to pursue the case as I felt that for $420 to go to one's residence to "paste paper" and seize items will be a major embarrassment to him and his family. At the same time I decided that $420 is also not worth my time.

    Well it seems that a Leopard can never change its spot, as demonstrated here.

    We just have to be more careful in our dealings

    chngpe01, you should proceed with the bailiff to pay him a visit. Even if a leopard doesn't change his spots, a little lesson won't hurt

    Never mind let him has his little contentment. I kinda of take pity on him, he has lost his integrity and self respect so at least let him have the little comfort in his family.

    It's already the past(more than 2 years) and I am happy to move forward rather than dwell on it. Just that I posted here when I realized another person fell victim.

    Afterall, it was between Joseph and me , nothing to do with his family.

    I have already "move on"

    if the judgment award the $450 against the company, you can only seize items belonging to the company. if all the things in his house belong to Joseph and his family, i dun think can be seized.

    The fact for my case the tribunal specifically wrote the address for the bailiff to sieze the items . In fact, I clearly remember the "tribunal judge" specifically said that by going to his residence it will make him feel bad in front of his family and hopefully he will pay.

    His company then was MediaWarehouse and I believe was not a Pte Ltd company but sole proprietor, that's why it is possible.

    Anyway it was over, as in bad debt written off.

    It may cause the register address is his home.

    Not if the company is registered as a sole prop, in which case, everything personal is also up for grabs. Only thing you can't grab is his HDB unit, which is protected under Singapore law.
