Zhihao - Photographer Highlights

Hi! It's Joe here!

I am a Malaysian student currently enrolled at University in Taiwan. Film Photography is one of my hobbies, I love taking pictures at the beach.

As you can see, most of my photos are of the beach and the sea. The warm colors of the sea, the people on the beach and the sunset give me great ideas for my images.

I always get a very satisfying, stable image from my favorite Kodak Portra negatives. I typically shoot with film exclusively because I prefer to remember the entire experience. With digital photography I remember the photo, but with film I remember the exact moment I took the image. 

We can never stop time at the most beautiful moments in life, but through photography we can freeze those moments forever. Even if I have to say goodbye to the moment, that one-time the shutter opens and closes gives me an image that is unique in the world. 

I don't dare to call myself a photographer, but photography is very important to me. It has become a huge part of my life.
