A Minimalist Family Portrait Session.
I always love taking portrait photo in simple way, so that each person’s expressions and personality become the main subjects of the portraits. Really love how these family pictures of Tan’s Family turned out to be – Genuine and Timeless.

A Gift From Heaven Above
Color Negative Film
Fuji Pro400H | Nikkormat Ftn 2 50mm f1.4
The story of Johnny and ChanHong of having this precious and beautiful baby was truly touching. They both have been through a lot of ups and downs before they were “granted” to have this precious one. They have even experienced miscarriage. I am a father of three, I truly can understand how they felt when they finally see their baby come to the world. I didn’t give a fancy title just to attract you to check on the photos, rather it is really to correspond with the story they have told me.
Taking these photos on film just make me feel alive. For sure from now on, I will shoot more often on film. ^^

New Born Baby – Three Weeks Old Aston
A week before the end of the year 2016 I received a call from Michelle, a bride that I had photographed a while ago, telling that she had just given birth to a beautiful baby and asking me whether I could able to photograph her precious one. And of course I quickly said yes, although I was in a busy photography season. Because to me being as a photographer who can able to witness and celebrate one’s precious life event is an honorable thing. ^^
Here sharing you a collection of this precious moment of new born baby Aston with his beautiful parents, Michelle and Alvin.

Jon + Sharon
Intimate Wedding @ Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur
This was a simple, and yet elegant wedding. Jon and Sharon are really an amazing and thoughtful couple. They basically did most of the decoration works themselves. Just right before the wedding day, Sharon went for a calligraphy class just to learn the craft so that she could do what she had dreamed of – to design all these beautiful invitation and thank you cards for her guests who attend her wedding. Sheron hand wrote each of the cards . That is surely a very thoughtful thing.

Expired Motion Film
Fujicolor Eterna 250D | Canon AE-1 50mm f1.4
Got the film from a pal from facebook – The Negative, who is a online film reseller. And the film was developed by Darkroom8. I like the warm color of the photos when they were taken under a very bright light condition.
However, when the photos were taken under a cooler light condition, like shortly after the sun set ( in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia the sun set around 6:45pm) or somewhere that doesn’t has direct sunlight. Then the overall of the color will be a little more blueish.
And here are some shots that were taken around 7:00pm.
Here are some shots taken during the golden hour. This was taken around 5:30pm.
These were taken around 9am.
And I found that when taking shots indoor with a warmer light environment, the colortone becomes a little bit yellowish. The photos will turn out to be warmer.
Overall, I feel like shooting on expired film is very inconsistent and very hard to get the same result even though shooting the same subject with the same setting. Well, I don’t mind to shoot on this some times. ^^
