Ashley & Photography

Quite a number of my friends were surprised when I bought my first DSLR camera. They didn’t know that I have interest in photography and wanted to invest in a DSLR. I am lucky to be able to friend with a few great wedding photographers. One of them encouraged me to get a DSLR, while Edwin poisoned me to get a better one…… Hope one day, I could become like Jenny Sun. HA! I’m day-dreaming in the early morning!

I have always liked taking photos. When I had a point & shoot digital camera, I took good photos too. Just that when it comes to my own portraits or photos, people always mess up. :( Sometimes I would feel so unfair that I could take nice photos of them, and yet no one could take nice photos of me. Even Andrew can’t take a nice close-up photo of me. Now it leaves me wonder, is it me that is so difficult to be captured by the lens?????????? I wish it wasn’t!!!!!

My sisters and I were supermodels to my father when we were small. We have lots and lots of photos during our childhood. Father was very passionate about photography too when he was young. I remember he had a photo hanging in the old cabinet, a night view taken from a hilltop, mom told me that father won a 3rd prize with that photograph. When I was young, I liked to play around with father’s camera. I couldn’t remember what model it was, I only remember that it could hell take good photos. Haha. Too bad that father traded it off with a digital camera, all of us were equally shocked and sad. Months later, he himself regretted, ’cause the digital camera was nothing compared to his old manual camera. Haha. He missed his old camera.

I wonder how father would feel when I show him my DSLR this coming weekend. I know the very first thing he would ask me would be “how much does it cost”. I have decided to lie about it. Haha. Bet he’s not going to let go of it for the rest of the weekend. Can’t wait to see him in action again!!
