better not to have a plan sometime,
e-session of karen and wanson

my dear photo assistant – Canly
e-session of susan and wilson
February 4, 2009
simon.the.photo – our spring annual dinner
February 19, 2009

this is a very special e-session I took last year.

First, when I have meeting with clients discussing the rundown of e-session, the most common topic is the choice of location. I always tell them that locations is the least important for my style of photography and make joke that we can even decide the location on the day of photo taking. Of course, it never happen until the session of karen and wanson. When we met in the morning and got onto the car, we ‘re still discussing where we should go. As they lived in NT, I finally suggested going to Luk Keng, Nam Sang Wai, and to Shek O (the most popular location for my clients) in the afternoon.

When we finished shooting at Nam Sang Wai and on our way to Shek O, I found that we didn’t have enough time and might not have any sunlight when we arrived.

So I asked, “Is Shek O, this location, important to you?”

“No”, they answered.

“Is it OK to go to other beach”, I asked.

“Sure!! No problem”

That ‘s why we changed the location from Shek O to the unplanned Lung Kwu Tan (龍鼓灘) in Yuen Long. I have heard of this place , but none of us had been there before. But it turned out that we had the most beautiful sun set I had ever seen in Hong Kong. I almost thought I was in Bali or Phuket when I looked at the photos below !!! it ‘s better not to have a plan sometime, isn’t it?
BTW, my facebook fans page exceeds 900 fans today, are you one of them?

Karen and Wanson is a very special couple, they told me that they don’t like too many kissing, romantic, hugging shots, instead, they like something look cool and special. So, you may see some photos below very different from my normal style

1st location: Luk Keng. We got some very interesting photos in a container yard.
