Oh Precious featured in DONUT

April 22, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

We were featured in the very popular DONUT magazine’s March issue. It was an honour being featured amongst the most popular/influential photographers of Hong Kong. In their own words, they liked our natural style of photography. Well, we love the look of their magazine. It’s stylish, colourful, high quality, and looks very different from many other magazines I’ve seen in HK.

Here’s a link to the online edition of the magazine.

Here’s the original interview in English, in case you are like me (guilty of not understanding Cantonese!).
Q1: Could you briefly introduce Oh Precious Photography to our readers?

Oh precious images specializes in  natural, candid and relaxed portraits. Our subjects range from maternity portraits, newborns, to babies, and families. I strive to make each session a good family memory, and create custom artworks for your homes. These are also very special heirlooms for your families.

 Q2: How would you describe the style of Oh Precious Photography comparing with other photographers in market?

Each photographer has his own unique style, and I haven’t tried to ever compare myself with the others. I am a lifestyle photographer, and like to capture images which are in the moment. I watch for the expressions in a child’s eye, and like to give parents pictures which truly describe their kids.

Q3: Why would you firstly start newborn/babies/kids photography at the beginning?

Of all of God’s creations, the beauty in children has always amazed me the most. They are so honest with their emotions. Capturing the innocence and beauty of a child is a precious memory for the family. I wouldn’t possibly think of more attractive subjects for my photography venture.

 Q4: What are the difficulties to shoot with newborn/babies/kids?

With newborns and babies, it is difficult to predict a schedule, and I need to keep quite a long timeslot for their sessions. This could mean a three hour session to fit in feeds, nappy changes, and even a nap.
Some young kids tend to be more camera-aware and might like to “pose” or flash fake smiles. My efforts are basically to ensure that they start ignoring the camera, and reveal their true smiles.

Q5: Any memorable/funny experience with newborn/babies/kids that could share with our readers?

A toddler who was chasing pigeons at a park, accidentally ran into a water sprinkler. While her mom and I laughed at her startled expressions, it also gave me another new emotion to capture.

Q6: Could you pick one “Best Favorite Photo” in your previous shootings? Why?

I do have many favorite shots instead of a single photograph. Right after a session with an energetic 5 yr old, he ran into the fountains at hk park. While he enjoyed the cool shower, luckily I was still around to pull out my camera and click some shots that are very special to me(and hopefully his parents as well!)
