Doing commercial photography make us learn how to create sharp & brief visual language between audience and the essence of the product. One image to communicate all the stories.
I believe, photography is one form of a lifetime process in learning how to see our world, learn how to communicate visually, and the best form of gratitude to life. Image composition, story telling, seeing-the-light are continuously developed through experience.My favorite genres of photography are product, architecture, and commercial photography.
In every projects, image quality is one of the most important thing.
Sharp, perfect exposure, and high quality images are standards to present the photo to clients.”
