|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.

We are familiar with the history of Julius Caesar, the Battle of Waterloo, how King Cyrus the Great came into power and unified the entire Persian Kingdom and Genghis Khan’s rise to power.
But not much is known of the Majapahit Empire that was once a very powerful empire in Southeast Asia. At the height of its power, Majapahit controlled lands that consist of present-day Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Thailand, Southern Philippines and East Timor.
There were 10 people who were influential in the Empire’s growth and decline
behind the rise and fall of the empire.
