|This photo by Susan is absolutely amazing. Seriously, I cannot stop looking at it.|
The moment you are charging somebody else for your skill, it means you are serious enough about your works. Even more so for a very important day in somebody else's life.
But fortunately enough, my enthusiasm was not short-lived. I wanted to prove that if other people could do it, I can too. Before I started to looking for people that I could charge for my service, I diligently volunteered to take photos for free during some of my friends' weddings and family gatherings. That was a good place to start because I received instant feedback, and as the positive feedback poured in, I was able to gather some courage to be more serious about the whole thing.
One of the things that I noticed was how a lot of the photographers are trying to offer ridiculously cheap prices for their services, while the mid-to-higher end complain about them ruining the 'market'.
Secondly, I think there are a lot of photographers that tend to lean towards the white, pure tone for their wedding photos.
Being a newcomer, I thought I should approach the whole thing daringly.
I started out offering prices from low to high-ends. Why bother competing with these 'seasoned' photographers? There are weddings almost every weekend of the year. I figured, I should put more effort into 'selling' what I have to offer with my photos. When a lot of them are offering the 'white, pure tone' for their photos, I decided to go for the darker, brownish tone.
Here, let me show some of the images I found on the net that I absolutely love.
So, there you go, a new leaf for 2016. Hopefully, by the end of this year, I'll be able to tell something very memorable about '16.

Last weekend, I had some time do what I love: taking some photos of people and making a video. I just wish I have better equipment, I hate seeing shakiness in my videos.
Anyway, I tried my best with what I have. I'm thinking of making more so I can learn how to improve what I produce. Take a look, and if you don't mind, tell me what you think.
#A Malay Wedding
And here are some pictures I took that day.
