Portraiture session of Dalila & Ridzuan – Pantai Sekakap – Mersing – 23 Oct 2011 – Photograph by Mohd Razali
Raining season start quite early this year. Normally heavy rain begins at mid November, but this year, you can find the heavy rain almost every day. For those bride to be having their reception on this month until end of December, you have to start planning for options.
I always mention to clients try to avoid public or school holidays as your reception day unless you’re going to do it in a hall or hotel. And for those who like a portraiture session, please set the appointment in the early morning and check weather forecast. It is important to get the right weather & time in order to get great results.
The best time for portraiture is 7am to 10.30pm for morning session and 4pm to late 7pm for evening session. But this time schedule doesn’t apply on November & December since raining falls in unpredictable time. Please keep in mind we as a photographer cannot fight the nature. Yesterday I photograph my great friends pre-wedding in a heavy rain. They dance in the rain, I hide under a canopy. Thats how it works. Fun but very limited composition. You’ll see the result in my next entry.
