Attention to detail is an important trait when it comes to Product Photography. Sometimes Yi-Chen calls herself a persistent perfectionist with anxiety.

A capable photographer is not only skillful but also possesses a good sense of beauty. The instinct about aesthetics helps shaping the image to an art piece.
I continue to learn, there is always room to be better. When you find me I am always at my best condition. And only I continue to upgrade myself better opportunities come.

Where am I from? Born and grown up in Taipei, Taiwan. Though English is not my mother tongue I like to keep using my Chinese name in English spoken country, in fact, it is not so hard to say my name, right? :)
How do I know photography is my passion? I search all over the places for information to help me become better. I watch more photography related youtubes/articles than romance and dramas. I spend much time in practices using newly acquired techniques.
Why is product photography my most favorite? Hawaii state are islands with only a few manufactures, product photography is the least trendy category in photography field but I am drawn to product photography. Did you just read I am kind of perfectionist? Perhaps product photography allows me to control almost everything with least interference of other factors. And I enjoy playing with composition. Maybe I am more of an introvert and I am nervous meeting with new people. I prefer working alone but that doesn't mean I cannot work with people, I am definitely a good team worker.
Fun facts? I have terrible sense of direction?
My favorite snack? Hot-kid rice crackers! Occasionally Häagen-Dazs ice cream for indulgence.
Appreciate nature, learn from experiences, live a moderate life, stay healthy is my life philosophy.
