Sleeklens Forever Thine wedding Plugins for Lightroom

Pre wedding Bali

Finally i have sometime to actually do a write up about Sleeklens.com Presets for Lightroom. We’ve been approach by Sleeklens.com to try out their Forever Thine wedding presets.

The above image is made using sleeklens.com wedding presets. I actually used Forever Thine All in one – At the chapel preset and instantly its the result i want, of course i need to fine tune a little. What amaze me is, the preset actually cuts down the amount of time i need for processing an image. It helps me cut down a lot of time on certain steps i usually do.

The most impressive thing  about sleeklens preset is the brushes provided. I was able to bring out a lot of details with their brushes and smooth out the skin. Usually i do these in Photoshop CS but with their brush preset, i’m able to skip this step in photoshop. I would strongly recommend sleeklens preset to any fellow photographer. Its a time saver and cuts down the amount of time spent in front of the PC.

Details on the processing of this image.

We can’t wait to try this preset more. Gonna use it more often now. 😀



Wedding of Jason and Yeung hei


28 Nov i got a call from Georgie asking if i could help him out at a wedding on the weekend. I immediately agree to it. It’s been 2 long years since i have shot a wedding. I was away for 2 long years due to personal reasons and another business venture. Now i am back to seriously pursue my passion. I know it will be a tough road ahead and i just got to believe and persevere. I didn’t had the chance to actually meet up with Jason and Yeung Hei prior to the wedding day itself.

On the wedding day itself, I told myself to go with the flow. Whatever comes, comes. The wedding itself was filled with joy and moments that are memorable. Their gate crashing was unique and in a way fun. I love the moment when Jason was to reenact how he propose to Yeung Hei. You could see Jason blushing and as he reenact his proposer, you can see how embarrass he was but he did well.

Overall the wedding was a very good one. Everything went smoothly and on time. Lastly, we would like to thank Jason and Yeung Hei for having us at their wedding day and their hospitality to us.

Thank you.

Price Vs Quality

quality vs price



Price vs Quality – This is actually quite a interesting photo and to some extent i do agree with it. I had my own bad experience as well. Here’s one of my bad experience. Last year, i brought my mum to Thailand for holiday and i have to put my dog at a pet hotel. Since most pet hotel can cost about $50 to $100 a night and i manage to find one at Pasir ris but they require me to produce his vaccination papers which i’ve lost it so i can’t bring him there. End up my mum found one near my house and cost only $19 a night. I was thinking, wow CHEAP DEAL!!! I went ahe ad. When our holidays over, I brought my dog home, few days later i notice tiny bumps and i realize it’s TICKS. My dog had never had ticks at all since i bought him. I tried to kill the ticks but i guess my discovery was too late. Now my whole house is infested with ticks, and its really BOTHERSOME! I need to call in pest buster to clean up the whole house which may cost me few thousand dollars.

This maybe and may not be true in the wedding photography industry. Since there is many kind of work by different photographers and many kind of style. Of cause we’ve heard of many bad weddings and some big shot screwed up the whole wedding and these are a couple’s worst nightmare. It’s always good to look at a photographers range of work. Do you like his kind of work? The style? It is good to short list a few photographer and meet them up to have a good chat than see which photographer you are most comfortable with and understand your needs. Through experience I know some couple have budget and some look for specific style and some look at equipment.

For actual day, looking at the photographer portfolio will give you a general idea of what he or she can do for you but for pre wed it’s really down to the theme of the shoot, composition, processing skills and layout skills. For me personally, i would love to understand and learn more about the couple first before taking on the assignment. This let me break the ice with the couple and understand their character. All this will aid me in shooting your wedding. I never believe in hard selling depthofeel photography services. At times, I even advise my own clients to look at other photographer work before deciding. I believe and respect that it’s your big day and you should choose a photographer that suit your ideal kind of wedding photography and not by hard selling. It’s only once in your lifetime.

Have a great day ahead! Feel free to email me if you have any questions or you can leave a comment if u wish to.
