Xinqi started her photography journey taking landscape photos. Over the time she felt something was missing in those photos she took, and later she realized it was the people that's missing. She started trying taking more portraits after that. She experimented on herself at the beginning - taking self-portraits. And after she had more experience, she moved on to taking more portraits for her friends, family, and gradually, her clients. Xinqi found taking portraits for different people gave her so much satisfaction and challenges as each person is unique, and she can't wait to bring her skills to bring out the uniqueness of everyone using her camera.
I like how challenging and satisfying it is to capture the moments each person wants. There are so many different expectations coming from different person, and I love that I can deliver photos that would bring them joy and good surprises!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done graduation photos, couple photos, and individual portraits in the past. The way I made them special is through observing each people so that I know the best angle to take photos from!
