Recently, my 2 good friends from Indonesia, Teddy & Sasa were on their holiday break in KL. Seeing that they are tying the knot soon, Sheng Wei and I took the opportunity to organize what we called a “pre-pre-wed” session. Sort of a rehearsal for the actual pre-wedding session (Which by the way, will be done by professionals. Obviously not amateurs like us 😉 ).
It was a spontaneous affair. Only preparation was dusting off the camera that has been sitting for far too long in the cabinet and getting the amost-frozen films from the refridgerator. Location scouting takes place on shooting day, depending on where we felt like going at that particular point of time. Only 2 other equipment needed is a reflector and a bag loads of enthusiatism.
That’s how we roll, baby.
We had 2 half-day sessions with them. On the first, we took them to Putrajaya and on the second, we went to a couple of places in KL city. The weather wasn’t on our side as the whole of Klang Valley was going through a hazy patch. Easily one of the worst haze I’ve seen in KL. Poor visibility was a genuine concern. Still, we worked within the constraints and managed to use the plain grey backdrop to our advantage on a couple of shots.
Overall, we’ve gotten some decent results. Maybe not enough to give the pros a run for their money. But more importantly, they are happy. We are happy. Still got lots to learn, but it’s nice to be back behind the shutter again. Looking forward to more sessions before the year is over.
In the meantime, enjoy this series!
