Curious? Ask.

Anonymous asked: Have you ever thought of being a photojournalist?

Yes. But I should mention that I’ve thought about becoming a lawyer, an architect, a CIA agent, a knife salesperson (seriously), and a hundred other things at one point or another, too. Besides, I’d be a horrible photojournalist. Can you imagine me trying to take photographs at some large event or protest? I’d be like, “Oh, that’s a nice looking tree,” and forget about everything else. 

Anonymous asked: In my honest opinion, I think your photography is beautiful. Your photographs of the children, a documentation of their lifestyles, all of it - it's just amazing. I hope that in the future something great happens for you and maybe give your photographs a bigger voice.

That’s incredibly gracious of you. Thanks.  

Anonymous asked: Do you use a tripod for all your photos?

No. I’m much too lazy for that. I’ll only use a tripod when I’m shooting with little to no light around and need a really slow shutter speed (e.g. shooting stars at night). And even then, I’ll usually just try to find a table or a rock.  

Anonymous asked: your photography is soo beautiful!! do you have instagram? btw, my friend has the biggest crush on you hahaha

  1. That’s very kind of you. Thank you.
  2. Yes, I actually just caved and made one a few days ago: @minhongkee
  3. That’s very kind of your friend. But I’m going to throw out a wild guess and say that you’re both around 14-16 years of age. That would make me a decade older than you. A decade. Just think about that. 

Anonymous asked: Do you shoot in RAW or in JPEG?

RAW. If you’re going to be doing any sort of post-processing, you’d be better off shooting in RAW. You’ll have more data to work with.
