Fortunately I was not the main wedding photographer. What hard work it was! With no control over light quality, background, and where everybody stands, I did the best I could. And I did the best I could with my first dSLR camera that was less than 2 months old and my non-existing knowledge of Photoshop. At times I am amused by the faith my little sister has in me. I love my little sis. I have been practicing hard, for this very moment.

I have been resisting to ‘photoshop’ my pictures for a long time until now. Simply because I’d like to show the world what I can possibly do with my camera and my camera only. Here is an analogy for you. Showing you what could have done with my camera (to the point of no cropping) is like performing my music live to you. The artwork is not perfect, it has its flaws, but (I hope) it has its charm, a sense of genuineness.
Most professionals do some forms of post production work on their photos. Competitions allow that too. Hence to me, admiring a moderately or heavily ‘photoshopped’ picture is like listening to a music album. Perfectly finished and generally accepted. Some cross the line and they have become more like a digital art to me. No disrespect to those who are skilled in post production work, I personally enjoy playing my music live. I.e. my photos as they are being shot (or could have been shot). Having said that, after ‘photoshopped’ this little photo collection of mine, I do enjoy admiring the end result of this twenty odd pictures, out of 500.
It is surreal to think that my little sister is now married. It seems like yesterday when I changed her diapers, when I was 4. Now, here are the rest of my photo collection.
