While Mum is Watching Show

Family Portraiture Photography by Chiat Hau Photography (Mum)Just some gear...you know..

Yes, it has been a long weekend. I have not been able to blog for the last few days since I am in Alor Setar (AS) and I have limited access to internet. :") So I decided to set myself another project during my free time (Which is to get some of the family members portraits - included in-law side using off camera flash way aka strobbing. And of course to see how much I could push myself by just using 1 light here).

Anyway 1st up is Mum. While I am taking all these shots, she just came back from her tuition class. Resting and watching TV shows from Astro. While mum is watching TV, I started to setup all the lighting and Mum was like... (WTH are you doing there?), I just told her that I am going to test some lighting and see how the effects will come out. (And of course, she asked me about the price of the gear and so on...etc - This is a very normal and common practice for Mum :"P).

So, Mum is pretty much willingly to become my 1st model of my weekend project, (since she got nothing to do but watching the TV show, while I just composed and make my shoot). :"P So here is the series for "While Mum is Watching Show", and his son is snapping like there is no tomorrow. :"P (Anyway I am glad that I got a model to shoot here. Thanks Mum) :")

Hope that you all will like this series. (There will be more coming up on the next few days so stay tune. :)). Anyway, tomorrow will be another new week... (After a long holiday for all of us). My best wishes to all of you on a new week (May be a not so Tuesday blue day) and have a great night! :)


  1. nice dude...wish my mom could be so sporting sitting there her doing her things (watching astro) and me shooting like no tomorrow. I think with me flashing the first one she'll be like "wey, don't kacau me watching tv...go play far far..." hahaha...

  2. 你家妈妈去什么 tuition class?她帮别人补习么?
    哈哈,我家妈妈不喜欢她的女儿帮她拍照的,除非她的女儿跟她一起拍 :P

  3. Beh: Thanks. :)Hehe, She is pretty fine after I told her what I am going to do. (So pretty much, I talked to her while makeing the shoot and she is watching TV). Luckily she didn't ask me to "go play far far...:"P hehe"

    家梅: 她去教补习了。(不是她去上课)她嘛。。。还好吧。。。暂时还没有什么抗拒。:“P所以赶快拍多多。:”P (正所谓,先下手为强):“P
