Has anyone seen a picture of history's most photographed generation?  The answer to this question may be a resounding NO if it is asked in a distant future, 10 to 20 years from now.

Why not? You may ask.

After all, today's generation is indeed the most photographed generation ever. Armed with a plethora of smart, digital devices from phones or tablets to computers easily becoming more available to everyone than before, more than 52 million shots are uploaded on Instagram globally every day and 350 million more to Facebook. It is estimated that about 1.2 trillion pictures are taken by humans with smartphones in a year; many which are shared on social media, but many more which will simply be forgotten. Some will make it onto your digital devices to be liked, or swiped left and right, but very few will make it into the form of a physical print.


Right here in our backyard, about 91% of Singaporeans (that is 5.3 million!) are smartphone users and of this number, roughly 55% use their devices to take pictures or videos. This can easily translate to hundreds of millions of pictures of our friends and family floating around on a cloud server somewhere. With the pervasiveness of social media and ease of sharing photos online, people are finding it less of a need to print out their photos. Indeed, businesses like photo-printing shops are getting harder to find, and people younger than 30 years of age almost never own a physical photo album anymore.


So will this mean that physical prints on paper, acrylic, canvas, wood or metal will be lost and forgotten in a few years' time? After all, there are a host of reasons why people are opting to go digital – like low cost, being easily editable, easily replicable and accessible with any internet device.

Not really.

Physical prints may still be relevant today, despite the obvious arguments for digital prints. Read on, if you are curious to find out how physical prints are still the best way to go to preserve those precious memories.

GRA Canvas


1) Digital Images are easily “misplaced” - According to a survey by Samsung, 34% of respondents say they lack the time or knowledge to download and store a digital photograph. This means of the nearly 1 trillion pictures taken with a smartphone, a staggering third of these Digital images will end up inaccessible or lost in the great internet cloud due to technical obstacles like forgotten passwords or obsolete hard drives.


2) Digital and Printed media can complement each other's strengths and weaknesses due to certain technological advancements.  While the strength of Digital media lies in its multimedia versatility, low cost and wide audience reach, prints are proven to enjoy higher levels of engagement and brand recognition due to its tangibility.


In other words,  Digital images can be edited before printing, in the right hands, to produce prints of superior image and color quality. Digital images are also useful for communication purposes especially in photography studios. However, it cannot be denied that the touch & feel of a framed picture or canvas brings a different level of satisfaction to the beholder.


3) A Professional photographer cares about selling you a full service and not just a DIY experience. They are usually dedicated artisans who go through a complete process of ensuring your pictures look as perfect as humanly possible from the actual shoot, to delivering a finished product.  They are serious about using their best photography, editing and printing equipments to deliver these final products to you because the photos you put on display in your home should reflect the character and beauty of your family and be captured in the best manner possible – being reproduced on fine quality professional photo paper or canvas.


On the other hand, if they only sell you the digital images, the process stops there. The final product is no longer properly managed by the photographer so it is likely editing will not be done with a properly calibrated monitor with proper software, and a professional lab will not be used to physically print the images on the right material. This usually results in completely lackluster photos which do not reflect the money spent and painstaking effort taken to shoot them in the first place.


4) Storage of Digital Images may not be as safe as you think. Printing is still an important medium for archiving your images. That photo-album on your table stand and that Wall-Art Canvas on your wall will still be there, while the way a computer reads or stores an image can change once every few years. Has anyone from this generation even seen computer with a floppy disc drive before?  Optical discs like DVDs are almost a thing of the past, and the USB storage drive has gone through several generations already.


There is a chance that the computer of tomorrow will not be able to read the digital images you take today – unless you constantly upgrade your digital archives. Cloud services may be a solution, but there are no guarantees that the companies hosting them will be around forever.


On the other hand, an archival print framed or on canvas can last for nearly 100 years if store properly and is a very good form of redundancy.


5) Digital images contain embedded information which can be leaked or hacked. Privacy can be an issue when digital images embedded with information of the location and date which it was taken are posted on social media. Digital images can be remotely hacked from even the largest social media company in the market by a person with the right skillsets as well.


6) Due to the potentially sheer number of digital images taken, companies or even some families might experience soaring monetary and time costs incurred in storing, managing and securing (from leaks and hacking of) millions of digital images as compared to the management of archival prints.

Its going to be that time of the year again, when families break out their christmas trees and lights, avidly search the internet for Christmas gift ideas for their close relatives, and fuss about that impending Christmas dinner or party.


People of various religions and cultures commemorate this festival in many ways - school is out, work-leaves are taken and relatives fly in from abroad only once a year to catch up with family and friends. Naturally some will feel the need to capture these precious moments with the help of professional portraiture photography and this is where we come in.


Through the years, our photographers have used  many simple, natural ideas to introduce a different twist to the usual family Christmas portraits taken in our studio. Here are several quirky, easy DIY photography tips which a family can bring to the photo shoot, making their studio shoot so much more memorable.

1. The Classic Combination : White + Red + Green
A Family can prepare up to 3 outfit changes for a family shoot, and we encourage pastel color co-ordination which makes the pictures much more natural. For the festivities, try the classic yuletide colors, which are naturally vibrant and pleasing to the eye (and to the camera lens).

xmas34.jpg


It is not necessary that these colors are in the clothes. The green can be a spruce in the studio, or the red a festive prop just beside the Christmas tree. If executed properly, this classic color co-ordination never fails to bring across the festive cheer in any picture.

 

 2. Presenting Gifts

The opening of gifts can be that Christmas moment enacted during a photo-shoot. These moments will most likely be filled with an array of emotions, facial expressions and excitement – especially if you’ve got kids around; bringing about some excellent and unforgettable shots.
Capture young people or children at that time when they give each other gifts and open them. Their emotions of anticipation, excitement, joy, delight (and sometimes even disappointment) are priceless gems for the photographer and these pictures will be a joy to view even years later.


3. Using Christmas props

Children playing with lights or toys are usually the most popular ideas during a photo-shoot because the resulting excitement and delight of the child's emotions usually lead to beautiful and easy photos.

 

xmas045_20181113-084920_1.jpg


The more unexpected the pose and the emotion of the child can be, the better.
The child or baby can sit on a chair, lie on his back or stomach, hide behind a Christmas tree or boxes, throw in the snow artificial snow or silver tinsel, hug a big plush toy, etc.

xmas45.jpg

As Christmas photography ideas, you can also use soft gift boxes, a sleigh with a blanket or a basket where you can put sleeping babies or put older children. Just make sure that your main concerns of safety and absence of a bright flash are addressed.

 

4. Kisses

There is nothing nicer or more sincere in a Christmas shoot than delicate sweet kisses against the background of the Christmas tree, snow or wreaths.

xmas13.jpg

 

Candy Cane Kisses
This is one particular shot which is popular among our photographers:

xmas56_20181113-090526_1.jpg

For newly engaged or married couples, there’s nothing more festive than a snog with candy canes and mistletoe and this shot is easy to organize and implement:  get two pieces on candy cane together and pose with your beloved for sweet kissing shot.

 

5. Slow dancing under the mistletoe
Dancing together on the background of flashing lights and the Christmas tree. What can be more beautiful?

 

6. Cheers for the festivities
Another easy-to-implement shot : Invite the family to take full glasses of champagne and raise them up, proclaiming a toast for the festivities. Don't forget to put on your Santa's caps for full effect.

 

 7. That Magic Ball
A round glass ball gives a very funny reflection, like a crooked mirror. Arrange a few shots to be taken through or off the ball. You can goof around with some funny faces, adding more merriment to your photo-shoot.



8. Masquerade, painted faces on parade
There are few things which are more thematic than a Christmas shoot. For best results, everyone should be in suits and masks.
It will be interesting to capture such mysterious, yet festive photos as group or single shots.

 

9. Tangle in Christmas Lights
Want something easy and just as effective? Wrap yourself, the kids (or even the pet!) in a couple of fairy lights and see them dazzle for the shoot. Fairy lights always make for a great photoshoot, and they require minimal organizing or planning.

xmas62.jpg

Try to use battery-powered Xmas lights if you go with this idea, through. (Safety first!).

A Mother's Love

A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on. After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said:

For cutting the grass: $5.00

For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00

For going to the store for you: $.50

Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: $.25

Taking out the garbage: $1.00

For getting a good report card: $5.00

For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00

Total owed: $14.75

Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he’d written on, and this is what she wrote:

For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me: No Charge

For all the nights that I’ve sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you: No Charge

For all the trying times, and all the tears that you’ve caused through the years: No Charge

For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I knew were ahead: No Charge

For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose: No Charge

Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is: No Charge.

When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said, "Mom, I sure do love you." And then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote: “PAID IN FULL

The story above shows in essence, the depth of love that a mother has for her child. That is why we should always honor this most important person in our lives every chance we get. Mother-love is the great, surging, divine current that plays forever through humanity. Mothers never retire; no matter how old her children are she is always a Mom, always willing to encourage and help her children in any way she can. Mothers profoundly influence our perceptions about ourselves, our lives, and our significant relationships, and a mother's happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.

Here at White Room Studio, we go the extra mile to ensure we capture facets of this special bond in every shoot. Over the years, we have taken many shots of mothers and their children in special moments of tenderness. These extra-precious moments can be captured in prints, soft copies, frames, canvas and even in our popular photo albums for the family to keep with them for many years to come.

Below are some of the amazing shots we have captured.

Right here in White Room Studio, Elaine, who’s a proud mum of a 7-year-old girl, shares their precious moments doing what they love best - exploring the underwater world!

There are a number of questions which our White Room Studio professionals are frequently asked on a daily basis. These range from questions like what to wear, to the best time of the day for that perfect shot; and are usually advice which our photographers should readily provide as a testament to their professional credibility.

This blog post addresses the most common questions asked by clients here in White Room Studio, and we hope you find them informative and useful for your preparation and planning of future photo-shoots with us. Our veteran photographers (Elaine and Dan) couldn't resist contributing some some snippets as well and we hope you will find them entertaining.

 

What are your photographer's educational and professional background?

Elaine studied Commercial Photography in RMIT, Australia. Since 2002, she has been a finalist of the Nikon Award at the Australian Centre of Photography, NSW; and received awards from the Black and White Magazine from the United States as well as the AIPP (Australia Institute of Professional Photography).

She has worked with major photographic galleries and studios in Sydney for nearly 6 years before coming back to Singapore to found White Room Studio.

Dan studied photography in NAFA Singapore, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. He started his own studio in 2007 and is recognized in multiple photography magazines as an authority in his field. He has taught art and sculpture through the Singapore Arts Community and is actively involved in the local arts scene.

 

What makes you want to be a photographer?

Elaine: I bought a Film SLR camera in 2000 to go backpacking in Japan during the Sydney Olympic school holidays. Since then, I became obsessed with photography! Setting up White Room Studio with my brother Dan Yeo is a dream come true. Working in photography which is my passion drives me to give 100% of myself into creating beautiful photos for my clients. I love pets and children, I love celebration, and most importantly, I love knowing that I've made a beautiful moment in someone's life, timeless in the form of imagery.

 

What is your favorite kind of photography session right now?

Elaine: I love newborn shoots. As a mother, nothing feels better than capturing that perfect moment between mommies and their bundles of joy.

Dan: I love all kinds of shoots Every shoot has its moment of perfection which is waiting for me to capture it.

What brand do you favor for your go-to camera? And why?

Elaine: Right now, Sony! Specifically the Alpha 7iii. It has the best sensor in the market now!

Dan: We have Nikon, Canon and Sony professional systems in the studio. Each brand has its own advantages over the others and the best camera system is chosen for each shoot.

 

How do I find your studio?

Our Address: 219 River Valley Road . Level 2, Singapore 238277

We are located on the 2nd floor corner shophouse next to UE Square, 5 minutes from Fort Canning MRT station, and buses 32, 54 and 195 drops you off at the doorstep. There's an underground car park right next to us, (and many nice local pubs & restaurants). so we're really easy to get to.

Still having difficulty finding us? Call us at 62357037

Our opening hours:

10am to 7pm Mondays to Fridays

10am to 6.30am on Sundays

 

What are the tricks or tactics you employ to engage with energetic kids during a shoot?

Dan: We utilize a plethora of tricks to engage with your kids. Four methods have proven to be particularly useful:

Singing some songs has had great effect to draw the attention of more active children. At times, our photographers ended the day with hoarse vocal chords just to get that great family shots.

Actively engaging these children works wonders as well. Speaking, joking and laughing with them has enabled our photographers to get the children more participative in their shoots.

There is something about soap bubbles floating around the family that draws the attention of the most energetic of children. They are captivated by them and often try to catch them, producing the signature shots which White Room Studio is known for.

There are props used by the photographers; from child-friendly wooden cars to wooden rocking horses to keep the children in one place for that perfect shot. Sometimes, families are encouraged to bring their own props – items which their children always play with, to enhance that feeling of familiarity during the shoot.

Lange 043

 

What should clients prepare before a shoot?

Dan: Make sure everyone is well-rested, well-fed and relaxed. Ample time should be allowed to get ready for the shoot, and some outfit co-ordination is welcome.

Our style is about the interaction between subjects in a natural environment, thus use of props is minimal. However if there are some props you would like to play with feel free to bring them along. Can be cute, can be personal and meaningful. Or just bring smiles!

 

Should I engage professional makeup artist?

Elaine: Your usual daily make-up might not suffice for a professional photo session. As such, it is advisable to engage a make-up artist to prepare you for the shoot.

Top reasons why using a make-up artist is recommended include:

- Less stress on your preparations before the shoot

- The make-up artists know best how to present your best look for a professional photo-shoot

- They use higher quality of make-up

- you will feel more confident and authentic during the shoot.

- you look more polished and professional during the shoot. 

White Room Studio will help you engage a professional make-up artist as an optional add on to your photography package. Come speak with us to find out more!

What is the best timing for a photoshoot at White Room Studio?

Dan: Overlooking Fort Canning Park, the studio gives the look and feel of being outdoors with an abundance of warm natural light and different creative corners for an intimate, cosy portrait session. The natural light on bright sunny mornings and afternoons (10am to 5pm) streaming through the studio's big windows will therefore be the best timing for a shoot in our studio. Weather with clear skies naturally will be highly desired as well.

Can I bring my pets for a shoot at White Room Studio?

Elaine: Absolutely! In fact, we strongly encourage you to. White Room Studio is one of the more well-known local studios for pet photography. We have families bringing in their family dog or cat for their shoots on a weekly basis. Dan, our Director of Photography has even been featured in Pet Magazine for his work on pet photography and his team has countless ideas to bring out the best in your pet!

 

How good are you with kids?

Elaine: Dan had a harp and drums ready to get the kids to warm up. Once they did, they had fun playing hide and seek around the billowing curtains and gave Dan opportunities for natural-looking shots. He made funny faces and let the kids look at their photos in his camera. He had the kids crawling on the floor, and even got down on his tummy to take the shots. The kids enjoyed themselves in the 90-minute session.

Dan: There were lots to choose from – single and group shots, colour, black and white, and sepia. There were pictures of the kids in front of the curtains, crawling on the floor, sitting on the sofa, playing with the musical instruments. I took advantage of the daylight that streamed into the studio to take some great shots.

Elaine: A client gave some feedback that Dan captured the kids’ natural playful expressions well and used the daylight to his advantage for some good shots. It’s nice that he blurred the background to make some photos more interesting and to let the focus be on the kids’ expressions. In short, we are very good with kids with the experience to back up that claim.

Giselle 133

 

What about teenagers who hate to be photographed?

Dan: We talk to them about what’s cool and what’s the latest, and a lot of the time, the teens end up seeing their photographers as someone who’s pretty cool! Laughing and joking with them, etc

 

How do you manage the elders (grandparents) who are not used to being photographed and may not understand what the photographer wants?

Elaine: They love being told how good, happy, funny, loving they look!! So many clients would tell us after their family shoot that they’ve never seen their parents or grandparents smile so happily for the camera, let alone kiss each other! Getting the elderly couple to settle into a hug always brings so much laughter to everyone and the entire studio literally light up with delight.

What makes graduation portraits from White Room Studio different from other studios?

Elaine: Say bye-bye to stuffy fake library backdrops and stuffy stiff poses! White Room Studio gives you a fun-filled natural experience in our natural light studio with your family and a fine art Graduation portrait to keep for years.

FaceBook grad II

Do you shoot for pre-weddings?

Elaine: Yes! We simply love photographing the chemistry between couples; the love expressed in their eyes and laughter, the tenderness expressed in their hugs and kisses. We have couples coming in all year round to capture their relationship or celebrate their happy days, like their engagement days. Our creative direction has given rise to many epic poses which inspired couples to use them for their subsequent wedding portraitures. (And yes, they come back to take those with us as well!)

Professional Hair and Make-up service is available before the shoot as well. Just give us a call in advance to arrange it!

PREWED Stone

 

How about corporate shoots? Do you do them as well?

Dan: White Room studio has been active in Singapore's photography scene for more than 9 years. Through this time, the studio has garnered numerous high profile corporate clients including: Chanel Singapore, Christian Dior Pte Ltd, HP Singapore, Dell Singapore, Mount Elizabeth Hospital, National Library of Singapore, Singapore Ministry of Law, American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM), Merril Lynch Global Services and more.

Our corporate packages range from basic professional headshots for corporate profiles; to more artistic sessions for the discerning CEO and industry artists like chefs, life coachers etc.

 

What is the viewing session for?

Elaine: A viewing session will be organised after the shoot. This usually lasts about an hour, when you are invited to enjoy the photographs in the comfort of our viewing gallery, Third Room.

We will facilitate the process of choosing the best photographs to adorn the walls and shelves of your home, and our expert eyes in seeking heart-warming sequences will give invaluable insight into the best ways to present your photographs.

During these sessions you may choose from our range of frames, canvas and photo-albums to complement your selections.

Will my photographs be retouched?

Dan: Yes, your selected photos according to our packages will be beautifully retouched! There's a broad spectrum when it comes to retouching! The style we prefer is natural and soft, however just let us know if you have specific ideas on retouching and our professional skills in professional retouching will best out the best in you.

 

Why should I go with White Room Studio for all my shoots?

The more pertinent question is: why not?

There is no other studio in Singapore like White Room Studio!

White Room Studio is situated in a Peranakan shophouse full of nostalgic character thus giving a wide range of warmth, natural lighting and atmosphere to explore. Our professional photographers are trained to capture real and emotional moments with their cameras.

Chinese families gather together for a reunion dinner on New Year's Eve, and clean their houses to sweep away bad fortune on New Year's Day. Kids would be given red envelopes stuffed with 'lucky money' and positive wishes as well.

During this season, getting the family together for a photo-taking session is also popular. However, organising the whole family for a formal family studio portrait for the Chinese Lunar New Year presents a whole new level of challenges – not only for the family, but also for the photographer.

These are the top 8 tips brought to you by our experienced White Room Studio Team to help families prepare for a CNY studio shoot:

 

1. Outfit coordination

01

 

Be it the Chinese Lunar New Year, or Halloween, this is the best opportunity for Mommy and Sis to coordinate matching outfits for the family in preparation for the shoot. During this season, you will want to match bright festive colours to showcase the fun and spunky side of your your family. For a modern and sassy twist, you may also consider adding matching accessories like scarves, hats or headbands.

 

2. Natural Lighting, Natural Look

 02

 

When selecting a studio, most clients appreciate one which has plenty of natural light. Natural light is constant, free and everywhere. Time is not wasted setting up artificial lights in the studio. The best time for lighting is the two hours before sunset and after sunrise, but good photographers will be able to shoot at any time of day by using areas of open shade that will give your skin a beautiful hue and put a sparkle in your eyes.

 

3. Make Them Smile, Not Tell Them to Smile

 03

 

Children especially, should be smiling in reaction to a fun and happy atmosphere instead of being told to smile at the camera in the usual “Say Cheese” fashion. Daddys here play a big role here as we know most fathers dread photo-taking sessions, and their facial expressions sometimes show it. Daddys, open up and have fun with your family. Let the photographer naturally interact with your children and this will bring forth natural smiles. Parents can also take an active role in helping to coax out those sunny smiles, instead of instructing them to simply grin at the camera.

 

4. A Hungry and Tired Family is an Angry Family

 

Do not show up to a photoshoot with an empty stomach. We have had clients scheduling their dinner at the end of the shoot and you can sometimes see it in their expressions during the shoot. If need be, prepare some snacks for your family members to deal with those hunger pangs. Scheduling the shoot near your child's nap time is also something to avoid. The whole family should get enough rest before the should so they can bring the necessary level of energy to the shoot, making it fun and memorable.

 

5. Leave plenty of time to get ready

A family turns up to a family shoot rushed and disorganised, and the tone set for the shoot will be equally rushed and disorganised. Plenty of time should be left for showers, bath, dressing and grooming before the shoot. Professional hair and make-up are highly recommended for mothers and sisters, so they have more luxury time to make sure the family ready. They will also feel more relaxed and confident, and this is reflected on the rest of the family, ultimately producing better shots.

 

6. Bring your own props

 

Some families have their favourite festive props at home. Bring them to the studio, if they are able to accommodate it. Your family has that emotional tie to your favourite CNY table lamp, chair, or even mahjong table, and when posing with these props, more natural poses and smiles will be there for the photographer to capture.

 

7. Bring your favourite activity

Why stop at props? During CNY, some families look their best while carrying out their favourite activity; be it laughing, singing, playing card or board games, enjoying a favourite snack, drinking tea, or even baking pastries. Speak with your photographer and see how far the studio is able to accommodate a family activity which will get the family engaged in doing something they love together. In this way, there will be more opportunities for the photographer to take beautiful and authentic photographs.

 

8. Have FUN with your family

Laugh, Play, Joke, Kiss, Snuggle, Tickle, Hug and more – these are the key ingredients to a happy and fun shoot. It is a must for the family to bring this along to the shoot, so the photographer will be able to capture your family at its emotional best. Prepare to pick up your children, play with your baby, tease your siblings, kiss your wife. Bottom line, a family having fun is one which is relaxed and happy, and relaxed and happy a CNY family shoot should be, for the best results.
