Here comes the third part of the Best of 2009 series. What is interesting is that the first two years of documenting weddings, I was not spending as much much attention to details as I should. This past year, I changed my mind and started paying more attention to such things such as the Chinese qua, dress, the shoes, the bouquet and all the things the bride and groom spent so much time and heart on.

Here are a few of my favourite detail shots from 2009.

Starting off with an announcement, I have merged my blogs. As of today, I will continue using this blog only.

Last friday, my friend Jacky and I went downtown Toronto to take some photos. It’s really deja vu all over again because this is the first time we have went out and shot photos since we had to do so during our photography class in our university days. The biggest difference are:
1. We were shooting Kodak Ektachrome slides back then
2. I was using my Nikon FE 35mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4 and 105mm f/2.0 back then and now I’m on my Canon gear
3. This is for fun, not for assignments assigned by our professors

Tea Ceremony is a very common and important Chinese ceremony where the bride and groom has to hand a cup of tea to the parents and elder relatives. The ingredients in these tea are usually lotus seed and dates, which implies “Together for a hundred years” and “Having many children”. Parents and elderly usually (although not set in stone) to give red pocket and gifts to the new couple.

Here are a few of my favourite photos from the past year

This is going to be interesting and very different from my normal posts. A few weeks ago, I was taking some jewelry photos for an up and coming business. Details to be released later on. After 3 weeks of intense trial and error with lighting setup, product setup, and photo shooting, we had some fun shooting something a bit more unusual, or at least something that relates to me very well – a small collection of Chrome Hearts jewelry. Most of my friends know I’m a huge fan of Chrome Hearts’s designs and products. Every time I step into one of their stores, I tend to come out of the story non-empty handed. I have already visited all their American stores including New York, Los Angeles, Malibu, Honolulu, and Las Vegas. I’m definitely hoping to visit the Europe and Asian stores when I get a chance.

A little background, their main designs consist of fleur-de-lys, crucifix, floral, and dagger. All their silver jewelry are made of 925 Silver. Richard Starks is the original and current owner of Chrome Hearts.

Belated Happy New Year. New Year, new blog theme change and a new series of the old.

It has been a while since I posted on here. Just to quickly update everyone, during the past few weeks, I’ve been keeping myself busy taking family, baby and infant photos, take a look here as well as some product shoots. It has been a fun few weeks I’ve got a few more shoots lined up.

On reflecting 2009, instead of posting a one off best of 2009, I’ve decided to take this one step further and make it into a series. In the following weeks, I will post more and more photos. To kick off, I’d like to share some of my favourite getting ready photographs.
