Passion

I’ve first worked with Melissa when I was in KL for Comicfiesta 2012, and thought that maybe I can squeeze in a shoot while I was there. Melissa was wonderful, she wasn’t taken back by the huge crowd of KL and remained calm the whole time without getting distracted. A year later when I decided to make another trip to KL again, I asked her if she still is interested to shoot, and her answer totally made my day.

I’ve experimented a few things that I’ve always wanted to try but always fears of failing and wasting people’s time. Thank goodness for Melissa who was so patient with me while I keep adjusting the lighting and trying out different angles and effects. I cannot be thankful enough for a patient and cooperative model. I still have more images to process but I usually retouch those that I liked best first 😛

I’m also learning other ways in directing the models to pull emotions out of them, despite that I’m actually somewhat socially awkward (this will be the death of me for sure) _(:3」∠)_ So not Leo, I know. Trying my best to change.

After the KL trip, I made two more travels to Hong Kong, the second one being to Hong Kong Fashion week. I’d say that I’m quite impressed with its scale and what it can provide. I’d really highly recommend local designers and even stylists to attempt to make a visit at least once, there are many treasures that you can dig from there. I’d write a more complete one in the next update, with pictures! 😀

Hong Kong, I was freezing my ass off to be honest. I should really pack more warm clothes the next time I visit during the winter. The wind was so much more chilly than I expected, even my thick wool scarf cannot save me. Being someone who is low blood pressure, I’m kind of vulnerable to cold ya.

A huge trip was planned for the second half of the year, and I’m really, really looking forward to it 😀 Tokyo, Japan!!!!!! *rolls around excited*

2014.

Because I’m so not creative when it comes to titles, as you can see I’m always having problems naming my images, and sometimes my fics too.

This blog almost went dead, like any of my previous ones (except Livejournal, I used to spam a lot back in its glory days). It just can’t compete with the convenience of Instagram that allows me to upload and update within minutes. But writing (or in this case, typing) has always been kind of… well fun for me, so I guess this blog is not going anywhere.

I can’t really recall much of what happened in 2013 now, there were so many shoots and I myself cannot keep up with the amount. But I guess I can always use more (…).

Inspirations went dead for a while, I’m not kidding. It’s not like I’ve ran out of ideas but I think its more like I’ve ran out of motivations. And this is getting more and more frequent that I’m freaking out. The fear of not improving and failure held me back, and I just want to run away from them, bad habit as always. I don’t know how am I going to convince people that I’m really trying to pick myself up. Those two years of hell has a long term effect on me and its not going to go away that easily. I’ve went through it myself and I know how it felt.

I’m still trying.

I really am.

Here’s hoping that I’d grow stronger and better in the new year. And for many years to come.
