I’ve got nothing against post-processing, it’s just like a visit to the dark room in the past but I do think that post-processing needs to have a point. Like Megan Baker’s work, post-processing can actually help find the essence of a scene. But for me, at the end of the day I’d still go for natural lighting and a candid smile. This portrait of San San, even though it was posed, has a lovely smile because someone made her laugh just at the right moment. No edits and no forced expressions.

Capturing such moments is what I live for in photography.

Glitter that shines even in black and white.

I’m very very pleased to have been selected as one of the 6 finalist for the SDD Omy.sg blogging competition. I’m not much of a long post blogger as seen from my standard 1 picture posts (it is a photoblog after all), but I’m really looking forward to the exposure. And the dancing, of course. =)
