Bridegroom William

Unlike Shan, William’s room do not get the best of natural lighting from the sun as it is shielded by neighbouring flats and had only a small corner window. The only available light before the sunrise comes from the ceiling florescent. As light bounce off the walls and take with it their colours, there is a tint of cool cast in the images caused by the blue and green walls. In post-processing, however, I was able to make the colours warmer.

The day began early and I started at William’s place with a cup of coffee. Michel, my associate photographer was assigned to be at Shan’s. Kenneth came in at about 0630am to style William’s hair before making his way to Shan’s to do hers. Thank goodness the couple stay near each other. At about a quarter past 7am, William begins his preparation as I click away.

Looking back now, it somehow dawn on me that the images look a little like a Gatsby commercial. Perhaps I’ve subconsciously been impressed from watching too many Gatsby commercials on YouTube featuring Takuya Kimura. In case you’re wondering why, it is because William, Shan and I once had a discussion about that corny yet funny Gatsby facial wash commercial so I went on YouTube to look up more Gatsby ads as I recalled how wacky and entertaining they were.

I just love singing along to that catchy tune of
“I~~~ will give you Gatsby~ Gatsby~~ Gatsby~~~”
