Printit Featured #2: Faye

Our users brought us the world through their photos. We are always fascinated by how moments are captured through different eyes. We believe this is what makes photography so intriguing – nobody will take the same photo as everyone see things differently.

Faye is our featured photographer this round. He is a designer by profession, he is from Perlis, Malaysia.

We love Faye’s way of composition in his photos. There’s serenity in his photos given the warm colors, and the people in them. Faye’s interview was conducted in Mandarin. Enjoy.
What does photography means to you?

摄影对我而言,是一种视觉享受,是时光的纪录,是学不完的东西。如果问我这世上有没有时光机,我会说,那个是相机。
You have a unique way of taking photos, how it started?

在回答这题之前,我想说,我觉得摄影是有一个循环的过程,在网上读了一篇短文,觉得这很有意思。就是由最初的单纯拍照,到后来开始讲技巧,构图,色温,电脑修改,相机器材等等。再来,就是约模特出去拍照,会有要求,要漂亮的华丽的,走着走着,然后慢慢又会回到起点,重新再来,可能那一次,不会再讲究什么修改了。我现在就是在这个过程里,一开始对摄影的最初接触只是为了学院作业/功课。当时其实对摄影的感觉还没有那么的强烈,就只是单纯的拍照,是很简单和直接的把我所看到的一切甚至是生活的一部份,而我觉得我因该把这些东西给纪录下来。也受到身边爱拍照的朋友影响,到现在都在学习当中。

What do you want your viewers to take away from your photos?
如果大家喜欢我的照片的话,只是希望看了过后有所感觉。(这题有点难,:-D)


Any tips you can share about mobile photography?

每个人的角度都不同,其实我也只是随着个人在当时的气氛和感觉去拍。没有什么技巧,就是凭感觉。

Do you share your photos? How?

我都会通过facebook 和 instagram 分享。是还有其他很多平台例如:flickr, thumblr, blog and etc. 但是目前我只通过facebook 和 instagram。

What makes you print your photos?

是喜悦,把自己的时光或生活的一部分冲洗出来,打个比喻好了,就好像看着自己的孩子出生。那如果帮别人冲洗照片,就好像医生在接生刚出世的小孩。这一份喜悦,无价。我会把 Printit 印给我的照片,拿去跟朋友们分享和讨论。Printit 平台非常好,觉得可以再发展更广一些。
Thank you Faye!
