Some trivia I have researched about Japanese culture. 

Photos were taken during the Travelife Magazine Japan Night event at Dusit Thani Manila.

When taking photos during important events like this, one must wear plain black attire, it makes you look less obvious when walking around, rather than printed bright colored attire.  Always be discreet when taking photos, especially when the show has started.  Do not block the view of the audience especially since invited guests are usually VIPs.  Since, flash and tripod are not allowed, take every possible angle and use multiple continuous shots.  Before the event starts, be early to check the venue for lighting, place to shoot, what to shoot.  Do some test shots.  Get the program from the organizer so you will always be ready on what’s next.  And enjoy the night.

Feel free to post/share some other tips.

Every December, Disney World performs a magnificent show at the Araneta Coliseum located in Cubao, Quezon City called Disney On Ice.  It’s amazing how these people can skate with their costumes on.  Truly a great performance last year 2011.

My most favorite subject:  infants/babies.  Child photography is never easy.  It has a lot of important factors to consider before you can take babies’ photos.  You have to have a great amount of patience.  I’ve taken photos of infants as young as 2 weeks old.  First tip i can give you is to know their nap time and feeding time.  Make sure to schedule your photo session after this important time for the baby.  Unlike adults, babies tend to tire easily.  During the session, water should always be at hand. 
At birth an infant can detect light and motion. At 3 months a baby can  see faces and continue staring at an object, such as a rattle, as you  move it side to side a few inches from his face (a skill known as  “tracking.”). At 4 months a baby can detect an object that is about a  foot in front of him and will reach for it; by 6 months an infant can  distinguish between objects, such as a bottle or a stuffed toy. (Note that other babies have faster developmental stage - please read through other sites or books about babies too).
So for Infants as young as 2 weeks old, you would be getting blank stares, thus they are actually cute when you take them lying down, or posing them when they sleep.  Please be very extra careful when handling babies especially newborns.  For 2-3months old, bright color (red, yellow, orange) stuff like stuffed toy, balloon, or even a cloth will catch their attention.  Babies 5 months and up can see quite clearly so look at them straight in the eyes.  Oftentimes, peek-a-boo works.  While small high-pitched sounds (like krrrrr…tcha-tcha…mpwa-mpwa) can make babies of all ages smile.    You may also get help from the nanny or yaya, as oftentimes, they can make the babies laugh and the babies feel more comfortable seeing somebody familiar or close to them.
Always be ready with your camera as you will never know when they smile, giggle or laugh.  But even when they pout, cry, yawn, just stare at you or even sleep makes everything precious.  Each moment counts, as you will only have 30 minutes to a maximum of one hour (with breaks) to capture these special moments.  Every 15 minutes, take a break, give them a drink or feed them, as the lights tend to tire them too.
It is very important to be hygienic when taking photos of babies.  Make sure you are not sick (cough, colds, flu).  Ensure that you have washed your hands and used alcohol or hand sanitizer before touching, holding them, as they are very sensitive.  Handle with extra care..that’s how child photography is.

(Note that other babies have faster developmental stage - please read through other sites or books about babies too).
So for Infants as young as 2 weeks old, you would be getting blank stares, thus they are actually cute when you take them lying down, or posing them when they sleep.  Please be very extra careful when handling babies especially newborns.  For 2-3months old, bright color (red, yellow, orange) stuff like stuffed toy, balloon, or even a cloth will catch their attention.  Babies 5 months and up can see quite clearly so look at them straight in the eyes.  Oftentimes, peek-a-boo works.  While small high-pitched sounds (like krrrrr…tcha-tcha…mpwa-mpwa) can make babies of all ages smile.    You may also get help from the nanny or yaya, as oftentimes, they can make the babies laugh and the babies feel more comfortable seeing somebody familiar or close to them.
Always be ready with your camera as you will never know when they smile, giggle or laugh.  But even when they pout, cry, yawn, just stare at you or even sleep makes everything precious.  Each moment counts, as you will only have 30 minutes to a maximum of one hour (with breaks) to capture these special moments.  Every 15 minutes, take a break, give them a drink or feed them, as the lights tend to tire them too.
It is very important to be hygienic when taking photos of babies.  Make sure you are not sick (cough, colds, flu).  Ensure that you have washed your hands and used alcohol or hand sanitizer before touching, holding them, as they are very sensitive.  Handle with extra care..that’s how child photography is.

My most favorite subject:  infants/babies.  Child photography is never easy.  It has a lot of important factors to consider before you can take babies’ photos.  You have to have a great amount of patience.  I’ve taken photos of infants as young as 2 weeks old.  First tip i can give you is to know their nap time and feeding time.  Make sure to schedule your photo session after this important time for the baby.  Unlike adults, babies tend to tire easily.  During the session, water should always be at hand. 
At birth an infant can detect light and motion. At 3 months a baby can  see faces and continue staring at an object, such as a rattle, as you  move it side to side a few inches from his face (a skill known as  “tracking.”). At 4 months a baby can detect an object that is about a  foot in front of him and will reach for it; by 6 months an infant can  distinguish between objects, such as a bottle or a stuffed toy. (Note that other babies have faster developmental stage - please read through other sites or books about babies too).
So for Infants as young as 2 weeks old, you would be getting blank stares, thus they are actually cute when you take them lying down, or posing them when they sleep.  Please be very extra careful when handling babies especially newborns.  For 2-3months old, bright color (red, yellow, orange) stuff like stuffed toy, balloon, or even a cloth will catch their attention.  Babies 5 months and up can see quite clearly so look at them straight in the eyes.  Oftentimes, peek-a-boo works.  While small high-pitched sounds (like krrrrr…tcha-tcha…mpwa-mpwa) can make babies of all ages smile.    You may also get help from the nanny or yaya, as oftentimes, they can make the babies laugh and the babies feel more comfortable seeing somebody familiar or close to them.
