從事婚禮攝影近十年,創作過各種不同人像作品,當中感激每對新人所共同構成的美好畫面,而我亦經常反覆問自己到底怎樣才能拍下「最好的婚禮」。

最好的,不止當刻,更指日後美好回憶
因經歷了這十年,對婚禮的看法確實有著很大的改變。為新人記下美滿的畫面固然重要,而同樣重要的是,到底5年、10年後,那些相片會否仍然令新人記憶猶新,感受到當刻的溫度?

當初的我由為太太拍照開始接觸攝影,帶著剛買的單反與太太遊走於曼谷。以為買相機就送技術,怎料碰到的是一鼻子灰,「影到我又肥又矮!」太太不斷扁嘴,責備我的攝影技術太差勁。這令我沮喪不已,心裡想著:這會不會是模特兒原因,但當然為了保命,最後還是沒說出口。

後來慢慢接觸攝影才發現,太太說的不無道理。攝影師,並不是滿足個人美感角度就夠,更重要是讓被拍者也享受其中,捕捉到自然美好的瞬間。為博紅顏一笑,從此奮發認真學習攝影,為的把最美的她呈現於相片,而在學習過程中,身旁給她給了很多以前沒有的女性思考模式,令我更懂”女性”,現在已是亦男亦女了(笑)。

入行首4年透過參加不同的歐美國際攝影比賽,從中認識到美學,也了解國際評委是怎樣評價作品。幸運地在這些國際比賽拿到超過40個獎項。而當技術和美學觀提升後,發現相片過於著重技術,的確能夠使人驚嘆拍攝角度技術,但就欠缺能感動人心的溫度。因而,造就了現在著重紀實角度的因由。

實話而言,紀實並不是什麼新穎的婚禮拍攝手法,在歐美一直都是主流風格。只是,在香港傾重唯美風格,所有畫面堆切而成。

用紀實拍攝手法記載精彩的瞬間,用照片去表達背後故事一張富情感的畫面要經得起時間洗禮,再加入 “唯美” 元素,令婚禮的真情流露、美好畫面均能同時記錄下來。每次拍攝時,作品就算交給陌生人觀看,他們也能像親歷其中,感受婚禮當中的溫度婚。

婚禮攝影師不正正就是在訴說新人的故事嗎?

Most couples think posing for wedding photography is the only choice in Hong Kong. They look for so called “perfect” photos in the wedding and hope their wedding is like a music video with script and like a romantic story line. Isn’t your wedding all about perfection but nothing left?

What is a wedding really means to us?

‘Being real, enjoy every precious moment.’ Photojournalism is a main angle in photography. A great wedding is full of tears and joy, let the photographers capture those moments. All you should do is to simply forget the camera and enjoy being present with friends, family & the beloved.

Photojournalism is nothing new. It’s the prevailing style in Europe and USA. We add on a little spice called “Aesthetics” to capture the real moments in a beautiful way.
