Shots and Poses Ideas with Arture Photography

You can get some ideas on the poses/ shots to prepare for your upcoming wedding or photo-shoot here. Take note on how to pose, what you want in the photo and the overall mood. A good photographer will make it happen.

Lighting is usually a problem with indoor photography. Experienced photographer Shin of Arture Photography makes good use of natural and artificial lighting to capture the interior details beautifully.  Where you stand, where and how to focus matter, they are well taken care of. 

When you are at a location away from home, remember to seize the uniqueness of that place. Landmarks such as structures and buildings photographed with the right techniques are going to look great, different from what the naked eyes see. Birds hovering in the sky against the background of the Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic below is such a wonderful sight to behold.

Shinny is the preferred MUA highly recommended by Jenny Sun and Stories' Grace Tan. She may not be a seasoned makeup artist with only a couple years of experience, she has already collaborated with the best bunch of photographers in the industry. Her counterparts were amazed by her talent in styling the brides to be. They looked gorgeous, a result of glowing radiance by her immaculate skill in natural makeup. In my opinion the soft simple hair Label:modernizes the bride's appearance in an unique way. With or without an Label:accessory of birdcage veil or a flower hair piece up to your preference, Shinny can make you the center of attraction by being classy adorned with luminous and natural makeover.

Besides the fine comments from various vendors mostly PGs she partnered with, I have not been able to dig more feedback about her professionalism, service and so on. For a researching bride the quest to look for the most fitting MUA is not an overnight thing and it requires doing some homework. Therefore more review data about a particular vendor would be a great help. Every bride's requirements are different and these aspects will the guidelines for her to perform a more complete filtering. Any comments girls? Let us know k...

"I was immediately drawn to the tea time spread. What a beautiful setup! I was amazed at the details – kinda reminded me of a typical English tea house. I felt like a Victorian doll having her tea party with porcelain tea sets of roses and gold trim. I was also quite impressed that Teaffani actually loans out their tea sets for parties since it is quite chore to bring such breakable items around after all."
