Event Photography Singapore
The most important attribute to taking good event photographs is passion, which I've tried hard to preserve by taking up limited projects and screening of clients who approach me. What make me stand out from other talents in the same trade are:
Advice to clients
Whenever possible, I'll try to give advice to clients. I don't overpromise anyone just to clinch a project and claim that I will be able to produce top grade quality photographs when the shooting condition is bad. Most clients won't be able to tell the difference in quality but photographers should be frank with them. There was once after I honestly warned a client regarding a kid's birthday event held in an open space during noon time, she decided not to engage any photographer anymore - I lost the project but I also felt relieved.
I maintain my fitness level well even though I'm often being haunted by old sport injuries. My passion keeps me energetic. As long as the venue allows me to move around, I'll be all over the place to find good angles. You may also see me running about when there are special incidents across the venue.
I don't snap only the important moments like cake-cutting or march-in; I make good use of every second during the event to find interesting subjects to capture. I try to document down the full story of the event from the start to the end. The viewers of the album will be able to grasp the happenings of the event.
Natural candid shoot
Natural looking photographs are more artsy although they are more difficult to capture. When a person looks into the camera, there's a high chance that he will feel self conscious and thus unnatural. I've my ways to snap photographs of guests without them knowing.
Interaction with guests
I tend to get along well with people, including kids. When the guests like the photographer, they will be more cooperative and look better in the photographs. Besides, I've my ways to draw attention of kids and animals for group shoot.
Best lighting possible
Light can "smoothen" skin and "shape" a face. I always try my best to light up faces to the best, given the situation. This is why you can see me rotating my speedlite around. I've also injured my hand a few times due to carrying the two-kilogram camera and gears on a single hand while adjusting the direction of the speedlite for a long period of time during the shoots.
The last thing you would want is to have your photographer being late for your event and miss the important moments.
I run through every photograph countless times over a few days. This helps to improve the photographs' quality because a fresher mind always does a better job.
