Cedric & Shi Min


2005

 

In June 2005, Cedric invited me to his wedding, and since Ive taken photos at weddings before, I offered to help him out and bring my cameras along to take some snapshots....please note I dont do this professionally or for money, its just to help out friends.

[ sidenote : most of the below photos were taken using black and white film, this will probably be the last time I use film, as its a bit too time consuming firstly, to buy, then take to lab and develop, then take home and individually scan! This process will be cut out when I move fully to digital ]
