DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING ???

Are you spending months trying to figuring out what to you with your new DSLR camera or even what to practice ?

Does it mean anything to you even you own some nice and expensive gear ( just to show off ??) but the picture quality is not as nice as your friend who has cheaper equipment but just have skills, know how to use different lens and know what to practice? Yes, exactly, you need to know WHAT YOU ARE DOING with your camera

It has been a while since my last digital photography class .

Planning to have the next one on 7/17 Saturday , 1 day class from 9:30am – 5:30pm (7 hours).

Will help you jump start learning about DSLR camera and all the basic stuff you will need to know, if you are interested, I can also give you some advice on how to get into the industry. :)

Here are the previous classes links , I will post more details later, like the stuff we are going to cover and the cost , just shoot me an email chung@chungliphotography.com in the mean time if you are interested, will put you in the interest list first.



Here are some pictures of previous classes. :<<<<<<

I always love traveling Japan, have been there for many times, but to me, every time was a special experience. Not too worried where to visit, I just want to spend some good time with my old friends and have some good chat. :) So fortunate have many Japanese friends there and never have to pay for hotel :P

Here are some pictures I took when I was doing some sightseeing with Yusuke and Maya in Yokohama, we have a little fun outdoor shooting session, just for fun :)

Maya just couldn’t help laughing when I asked her to pose a little something for me

Beautiful Yokohama city , about 40 mins from Tokyo

I cannot say in words how much I love Toshi and Yukari’s wedding. It is a total authentic and traditional wedding in a Shrine in Japan , Nezu. I felt like I was in a movie. All the details, the atmosphere , the shrine, the reception, the dress were all incredibly elegant and beautiful. It is certainly one of my BEST wedding experience.

Toshi has been always been a great friend of mine since we met in MBA school 7 years ago in California. I always look up to him and lot of things to learn from him in terms of how to be a great guy. About 2 years ago he went back to Japan to work and met this beautiful girl Yukari and got married in Nezu where they live now.

I wasn’t the official photographer on their wedding, Toshi reminded me don’t bring any gear and just totally enjoy , my role was just be a good friend and to have fun in their wedding. I couldn’t help and I brought minimal equipment : a 5d mark II body and 2 lens ( 24-70 f/2.8 and the 50mm f/1.2 , with NO flash ) ,, took these pictures here and there for fun purpose and as their wedding gift :)

Brother !! Congratulations again !!!

It was a short but super exciting engagement shooting trip to New York City. I left San Francisco on Friday night, took a red-eye flight , arrived NY Saturday morning with my videographer , shot in the afternoon and came back on Sunday evening.

I was beyond thrilled to get the trust from Meredith and Michael to hire me and to fly me to east coast to shoot their engagement and their upcoming wedding in July in Martha’s Vineyard, MA. While I’m still editing their engagement pictures, want to see some sneak peek images ?
