Sharing an Umbrella, by Siew Bee Lim

One raining day afternoon, I went to this place outside a shopping mall to photograph. The open space was empty most of the time, as pedestrians preferred to walk under the shelter. This couple carrying a beautiful umbrella walked from the middle to the other end. They were out of my frame before I could click. I promptly changed to portrait view and clicked.

Photographer: Siew Bee Lim (Singapore) Registered
Born in 1965 in Singapore, photography was one of the old hobbies of Siew Bee Lim. Now she would like to learn it formally via Light & Composition platform as she believes it’s not too late. Since primary school she is not good in drawing; she doesn’t have artistic hand that some of her classmates have. Nonetheless, she likes reading since young, and would try to appreciate Chinese paintings. Few years after she started working as a Programmer, she took up photography as a hobby. She attended a short course which included a session in the darkroom. In those days, good photographs were dependent on good darkroom skills. It was unlikely that she spent much time in the darkroom. Hence the hobby didn’t last long then. She believes that the present learning experience has a longer way to go.
