Comment Post: DSLR vs Digital Point and Shoot

This is another long comment i wrote in Applegal's Blog. I wish have this thing while writing my own blog site.
moz: dslr do make a better photo. it doesn't not because of the camera itself but more on the lack experience and knowledge by whoever using it. its like buying a 4wd car and try to drive into jungle without the experience and know how on the rough terrain, then the car will be ended up as a family car at the end.

when i change from automatic digital to dslr, problem is getting a good photo shot. automatic function on dslr camera is not as good as the point and shoot digital camera because the automatic software itself not as advance as the automatic digital camera.

dslr gives more control on the photo to the photographer while the automatic digital not. one might be a good photographer on automatic with the every photo look the same. but dslr gives photographer to experience, experiment and explore more effect on the shuttle speed and aperture and even the type of lens itself.

and yet, using a dslr and slr camera is a totally different league. slr camera using film as its medium but dlsr using electronic data. the photo result will be totally different. to assume dslr and slr is the same is totally wrong. some slr photographer seems to have problem with getting a same result with dslr because it cannot produce the same thing as what he get with slr. a good slr cameraman need the know how of printing and developing (dark room know how) the photo himself so that he can put some effect during the post processing the photo. a dslr cameraman need the same know how too but on a different medium. he/she need to know how to use the computer at first, and to use the photo editing software such as photoshop. a slr camera man will not have the same satisfaction on a dslr photo unless he know how to post processing the photo up to his need. i don't think that a dslr cameraman will ever want to use a slr camera because it is expensive to work with and need more time to learn compare to dslr and automatic digital.

conclusion: dslr does produce good photo than automatic digital camera. trust me! sorry apple, for the long comment.. ^_^

Comment Post: Grandma

Below this are my comment post in Applegal's Blog entry. She blog about her visit to her granny's place and having a good time. Some memories shared to us in which it is a nice relax blog reading. I have my own shares of it too and i did share it back in this comment post below.

gurl, you must be kidding me if you doesn't able to speak fluent in hakka. for all these days, i thought that you're local KK gurl but seems that i was wrong. :)

it's quite sad for not being able to communicate with your grannies in full understanding. for your grannies to share her experience and yours to your grannies is priceless. both might not agree with each other but it will be a most nice moment in life to be learn together.

i am also never have the chance tp get to know my granny as well before she died. all grand children have a fear over her as we thought she was a fierce lady but i was wrong. during her sick and weak period on the age of 90+, i have a good and brief moment listening to her share of experience on life as most of the time she mumbling a lots. my mom did her share turn on taking care her with my aunt. for these years i know that we losing her day by day.

she died while I'm on my first year in KL. it quite sad to know that, but deep in me i feel relieve that her suffering ends and she is now with god. dying in an old ages is a celebration for our culture and some other culture. so nothing to be sad about actually.

i believe that you have a good relationship with your granny. i witness a granny and grand daughter relationship that is so close. a granny who like to listen to what her grand daughter life experience and exchanges to each others with hers one. I'm so lucky to be shared to her granny experience once a while and some of it being told by the granny herself.

living in modern lifestyle erase lots of the connection within the generation it self. the gap is getting wider and fueled even more by our needs of getting a privacy life without the mother in law nagging and involves with our nice nice and simple nucleus family.

having to see my self getting older and my mom and dad getting older too day by day, i realize that one day it will end. i always telling my self to be appreciate on what we have today although changes is waiting there for us in future. the things that stays and remain is the sweet memories and experience that that was shared.

this post really wake up my inner past memories. i hope that your memories with your granny will stay forever in you. ^_^

Forum Post: Wedding Album Book Layout.

Due to my post of my album layout, many ask where and how i do the book. It seem that no one give any comment on the design itself. I actually not really want to let others people know on how and where i print my book due to it is the secret of my business. Still, i give them an outlook on my mind about the books and how i get it to run. Hope it will give them an inside of it rather just giving it to them.

for your information, the book size is A4 landscape with 50 pages hard cover with an extra cover for the book in where i put an average 200 edited photos in the layout design. My sell price of the book is about RM200 (for this book) up to RM300 or more depend to the paper quality and customize design requested by the client. Normally, this book is included in the photographing wedding services packages. i also take some layout design order with or without printing services from photographer who want to present their photos in form of album book layout compare to the old style photo paper printed album.

the designing of the layout took me nearly 2 months to do and printing and binding is less than 3 days. a good photo will not be perfect without a good way of presentation. a good presentation need a good design in its layout fills with each self uniqueness with a concept that represent the wedded couple itself.

printing ironically is the main concern for the client where most of the time put on the designing. client can accept an adequate design but not an adequate printing quality. you can have a good art work standing along side of Picasso and van Gogh but your reputation will plunge down if the printing quality not as what they wishes. printing process should be the least thing to be worried, but only few places have the credibility to satisfying the needs and requirement of the designer to have their artwork presented in a high quality environment.

most of the designers tend to sent their artwork printed overseas such as japan, australia or even united states. some does sent it to printing company in which offers a good bargain but less space for the designer to present and expand it creativity level where its rare to see a good album layout artwork around. we need to have the know how on the process of printing making book instead just having the know how and expertise of just taking photo or designing. by knowing that, we can create a high quality presentation in adequate cost and avoiding unnessesary cost that most of the printing company is now taking avantages.
