Christmas Charity Photos

Well mate… here it is…

Some images we took during the event, we love to feature every kiddo that come to support us during this event, however, due to limitation of space and we can only feature some images that touches our heart….

The greatest gift that we’ve received during this event are the wonderful smiles on the faces of those little kiddos.

Shooting was the easiest part, retouching part was overwhelming, we spent about 180+ hours retouching the images for all the shoots over 10 days period between 2 of us… Yes, we must be crazy to retouch EVERY SINGLE images and this is a charity event.

The thing is, with Tomato Photo, we DO NOT compromised on our images by cutting corners…

It was 3 days of on and off drizzle, but our conclusion is KIDS LOVE RAIN…. so why shy away from rain and stop shooting?

Day 1 – Rain, Rain and Rain…..Due to rain, we limited the shoot at covered space we have, for client who let us have our way, we have capture some of the special images for them and we have taken some of our favorite shots of the day….

Day 2… Its Christmas day!!! – Weather was quite good but a bit of rain… But hey… kids love rain

Day 3 – Great Day….. still overcast…

Christmas Charity

We have been talking about doing some charity work to help the needy since July. However, bookings have kept us busy since we started in March 2008.

Yes, Finally we did it…

Christmas is a time of giving, so we can’t find a better time to do what we intend to do.

So on 24-26 Dec 2008, we did a charity shoot around the common area of our residence….

We are glad that we have raised $1500 for Autism Resource Centre to help the Autism kids to develop skill which enable them to be like many of us.

It is a very small amount comparing what they need, but we do hope it helps.

What we wish to see is if every photographer in this world can spare few days in a year from their busy schedule to help the needy, it will bring lots of smile to those in need.

Helping the needy doesn’t have to be in material form… it could be a simple visit to people in need and listen and caring for them… if you could put a smile in someone’s face, you deserve a pat at the back.

After all, we are in SMILING business….

We shall update some of the images taken during this event when we post processed some of them. Until then…

We wish everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year….

What a week…….

It has been an interesting week…. extremely busy with last minute Christmas order and countless shoots….

It is all start with a shoot at East Coast Park which started an hour later than schedule and after 20 minutes of shoot, it started pouring…

Follow by more shoots throughout the weeks and countless hours spent on retouching to fulfill the rush order…

The highlight of the week is to cover a baptism ceremony in Fullerton Hotel…

Gorgeous interior, interesting event as well as very special people…. Everywhere you see is full of opportunity… and the balcony view was absolutely gorgeous…

The week ended with a wedding shoot in Grand Capthorne Hotel…. and the view from the couple’s suite is simply irresistible…

For the first time for the last 10 months, my arms feel numb from lifting all the heavy equipment to get the shots and retouching… we thought August was busy….

We thank all our clients who trusted us for recording some of the most wonderful moments of their life… truly enjoy myself this week, meeting lots of interesting people and visited some of the nicest places in Singapore.

Things we do…..


We thought to share some of our thoughts and things we do that differentiate our service…..

Most of our clients worry about their home being messy and too small for photo shoot. So I thought well, its time for us to show how we do things…..

This is probably a messy sofa to most people’s standard.

This is what we see as a photographer….

We also spend time on the retouching (post processing) to make sure you are getting the best of our work.

These image shows how little distraction and not well expose picture will ruin the shots….

Well expose with distraction removed as well as putting attention to the subject. All you see is subject…

~~~~~~ Grace & Kenneth ~~~~~~~~

We love this image of Grace Young and Kenneth.

We spent 10-15 minutes for the session. Most of the time was spent talking to Kenneth and arranging the location for the shoot.

To create this natural and timeless image, we have moved a few of the picture frame from beneath the lamp and move the classic leather chair closer to the lamp at the back so they form an unity. and tell a story.

We love the warmth of the tungsten lighting and fill in flash to put emphasis on the subjects…

All above preparation means nothing if we could not get the most natural shots of them. What makes this image works for us is the natural laughter and connection which shows the closeness of the two.
