Jo Yu skillfully creates wedding photographs in film photography style!
And not only does he create pictures that look as if they were shot with film, but he also uses the similar equipment which great photographers of the classic analog film area have used.
Pictures that touch the soul…
On his website, Jo Yu film look photographer, uses the slogan: ‘…pictures that touch the soul’. And indeed I was touched when for the first time I reviewed Jo’s fantastic work. His pictures have a certain something that is hard to describe, but easy to fall in love with once you have seen it.
Not your average ‘Spray & Pray’ photographer…
What am I talking about ? ‘Spray & pray’ is an expression used to refer to the method of photographing as many as possible photographs and then praying some will turn out good.
And this way of photographing is all too common among Bali’s countless wanna-be photographers.
Jo is not one of them. Looking at his photographs one can see he seeks out the most favorable angles and skillfully plays with the light. He is a true master of his craft.
Not one of Bali’s countless boys with a camera around the neck.
So who is Jo Yu for (and for whom not) ?…
Not every bride likes her wedding photographs in digital perfection.
It’s all over the Internet and on top international wedding and bridal websites. The trend back to film look photography.
Less saturated colors, slightly tinted photographs, photographs with a grainy structure – pictures with a soul.
If this style is what you are looking for then Jo Yu film look photographer is a good choice for you.
Whereas if you like tack-sharp images with strong and vivid colors then Jo’s work is definitely not for you.
Classic & timeless photography…
Jo has studied architecture and photography. And he was the last generation of photographers who still got their hands wet in the darkroom. He was privileged to learn the classic way of creating photographs on film.
Jo is a quiet person. A keen observer. And he definitely has the eye for details, emotions and candid moments. All the traits you would want in your wedding photographer.
Jo is also not the right photographer if you want your photos two, three days after the wedding. Because Jo takes time to edit to achieve this classic film look. So you’ll have to be a bit patient. But I assure you it will be worth the wait.
And now comes the part which will sound like music to your ears. Jo Yu’s film look photographer is surprisingly affordable. Considering the amount of work that goes into editing the photos he is a real bargain, actually…
‘Nuff of me rambling on… The prove is in the pudding or so they say. So, in the following I leave you with some of those wonderful images that Jo creates:
Ladies, I hope you have enjoyed the photographs above. And who knows, you may have just found your dream photographer for your wedding in Bali.
