Chasing sunrises and sunsets guarantee gorgeous light leaks which will make any couple swoon over the photos, but how about upping the "natural light" ante by creating memorable portraits with neon lights in our city of lights?
The Prudential Carnival made an appearance once again this year at the Marina Bay and I finally got the chance to capture some casual couple portraits with Leslie and Rebecca as they relived their childhood playing old-school games.
Before I could walk into the Carnival, I was kindly informed by Security that I was not allowed to bring any Tripods or Monopods that could not fit into a bag inside. There went my Carnival portraits with lights from the rides against a sunset backdrop plan as I watched a swirling sky of candy pinks and oranges fade into darkness while I waited for someone to help pick up my tripod as there were no lockers to temporarily house my forbidden item.
While my current wedding filters slant towards slightly unsaturated and bright tones for a cleaner look which most couples prefer, I thoroughly enjoyed the vibrant reds and yellows dotted with lights from all colours of the rainbow, and tried to keep my editing true to the atmosphere created by the carnival.
After getting rid of my forbidden item, we found a Cinderella-worthy carriage which was sadly locked but we managed to make use of the outside anyway. I loved the reflection of circular light bokeh in the carriage windows which thankfully did not reflect the crowd of teenagers behind me wondering what on earth we were doing.
