Engagement

I tagged along in an engagement shoot and realised there are so so many things I need to learn, and I have to stop winging it especially in indoor scenes. I was reviewing the pictures after and most of the images have severely uneven lighting, and if I were a paying customer this should be unacceptable. The images could have been worse without the assistance from H who lent us most of the equipment and set up the flash. So many things to learn, I look forward to improvement in the days and weeks to come.

Food / Philippines

Chateau 1771

There are relatively pricey restaurants I wouldn’t mind spending my hard-earned money on, and Chateau 1771 is not one of them. The food is okay, nothing to write home about– but I have to admit that their plating is beautiful.
