Photographer Alphone Tea bought his first DSLR camera, like many other photography enthusiasts, after he became a father. But then he found, that family photos alone could not satisfy his passion and began exploring other genres of photography as for example underwater photography, what he feels the challenge lies in both, posing and focusing. Shooting underwater baby photos will be his next frontier.
The most challenging task for Alphone is shooting newborns. Sometimes he has to spend a whole day with the parents, waiting for the perfect moment when the baby smiles or sleeps.
Last year he upgraded from his Canon EOS 60D, which Alphone has been using for the last three
years to a Canon EOS 6D. In addition Alphone arms himself with his favourite lenses EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM and EF24mm f/1.4L II USM for all his photo shoots, along with his two Speedlite 580EX II flash lights. To him, his most useful lens is the EF24mm f/1.4L II USM, which he uses mostly for indoor and lowlight photo shoots without a flash.
Alphone believes, that for a photo shoot to go well, good communication with all parties involved is most important.
