Violet Ting

I was born in Malaysia and settling in Taiwan.

 

 I started my underwater photography journey in June 2014, my first experience in visual photography was with Canon compact camera G12 with single strobe setup, and during my first trip to Anilao, Philippines I was expose for the first time in macro photography that left me with an amazing memory.

After a year shooting underwater photo, in May 2015 , i decided to joined “SNUPS” competition organised by the Philippines, One of the criteria during this competition was a zero editing shootout, it was a great challenge for me and I did it with positive energy and follow my heart, I was awarded 1st place in Nudibranch portrait, 1st place in Macro and the Silver prize Photographer of the year. Over my achievement and I decided to upgrade to DSLR NIKON D610 with Sea&Sea marine housing, with dual strobes setup as my interest growing I started to apply snoot photography for mood and moment as part of my visual art and till today it has been my favourite technique of shooting in any given subject.

And since 2015 I have been interviewed by Scubashooter cover story#25, Malaysia China Post and China online underwater websit UWPIXEL. During these years I have won several other international competitions which lead me with an encouragement to share my life experiences in TDEX 2017 and 2018 Bangkok, Thailand and coming 2018 DRT Singapore, DRT Malaysia and DRT Taiwan, 2018 Hong Kong as an invited speaker. For me, underwater photography is about the feeling the mood of any given subject and transform that moment to a visual that connect with the viewers, this is my way in expressing visual photography .

 

For my style of photography, i prefer to capture ” emotion and feeling” as one of the great image is one that conveys a mood and pulls the viewer into the scene. And if a visual can tell a story, it is considering a successful visual, it is my style to connect visual towards the viewer, evoking emotion and feeling that help to tell the story that i want to convey.
