Photos with feelings vs Fashion shoot

Personally i have always preferred photos the enacts emotions of peace, serenity and love rather than fashion and glamour.
I called these images “emoref” meaning photos that convey reflective emotions. Fashion is pretty much like its actual counterpart in the real world, often
shifting from one end to the other and whose heavy makeup hides the true beauty of the model.
I believe many years from now, these emoref images would still convey the same emotion as it would long after folks in the images are old and moved to another stage of life.

These are images taken at Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, Malaysia. Its a remote tourist spot that features french like village.
I hope u enjoy these images as much as i made them. Model name is Joyce Low.

My theory on the Rules of third

My theory on the Rules of third

I’m gonna keep this very short. Its a thought that have gone thru my mind several times and i might as well share it out here.
Why does the rules of third works?
I believe its simple because we will identify faces automatically and we look for the “eyes” as the location on the face, which happens to be 2/3 up there.

In short, regardless of a scene or object being shot at, the eyes feel more natural looking at things located 2/3 of the picture. If you put a face in a picture, regardless of where it is, our eyes will hunt for it. In the absence of such face, the picture as an overview, is a face.

Sounds like twilight zone isn’t it? well u heard it first here. Now keep shooting.

60 mm 2.8 for superb portraiture

Well, now that dpreview published a test on 58 1.4 of the new nikon lens, may i bring your attention to a lens that is also “specialty” in some ways and with character.

This was shot at 2.8 with 2 flash setup SB900 and SB910. Model is Miss Kim Goh, a top 10 finalist for Miss Universe Malaysia 2013. The commercial texts are just for illustration.
