my brother's wedding banquet took place last month in taoyuan, taiwan, where my grandparents live.
these photos were taken with my camera, but not by me. i was actually too busy helping the bride get in and out of her dresses [she had to change three times!] to be able to shoot the wedding. luckily, one of my cousins is a shutterbug like myself, so i handed him my camera and told him to go crazy. i think he did great. he was not afraid to get close. ;)
of course, i did the editing myself. the lighting in this space was tricky. okay, it was just plain bad. so, to compensate for the poor lighting, some of these [in my opinion] are a little too 'photoshopped' than what i usually do. meh. i tried.
also, more than half of these were edited using vsco film for lightroom 4, a recent purchase/upgrade for my slowly dying computer.
vsco film is amazing! i was blown away by the quality of the filters [presets], and it really looks like film! my absolute favorite for portraits are the portra 160 filters. beautiful skin tones. i'm looking forward to using and experimenting with the rest, just need to go out and shoot more! [with my dslr, which rarely gets out these days.]
