It is the person behind the camera that makes the difference and performs the magic, not the camera.

Don’t look down on compact cameras and intimidated by huge cameras.

Have faith in your camera and trust your camera to deliver the photos you want.

It is more important to learn and understand how your camera works and its capabilities than chasing after better equipments and gears.

The camera doesn’t lie. Holding Your Camera The slightest movement from you (breathing, trembling hands, wind, movements around you and etc.), will create vibration and thus, blurry photos.

Most effective way to counter vibration is using mono/tripod with self timer and/or mirror lock up.

Breathing control, positions of your hand, leg and fingers. Types Of Photography What Is Photography? The process or art of producing images of objects on sensitized surfaces by the chemical action of light or of other forms of radiant energy.

Story Telling


Composition is the most important key to a good photo. Composing Your Photos 1 - Rule of Third
2 - Background / Surroundings
3 - Close/Move in
4 - Angles
5 - Arrange/Direct
6 - Creativity
7 - Breaking the Rules Rule Of Third The rule of third is a compositional rule of thumb in visual arts such as painting, photography and design.

The rule states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal and vertical lines and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.

Proponents of the technique claim that aligning a subject with these points creates more tension, energy and interest in the composition than simply centering the subject would. Background Avoid and watch out for distracting objects around your subjects, especially around the head. "Clean" and plain background is useful in isolating your subjects and less distracting. Less is more. Go Closer / Move In Try to fill up 2/3 of the frame. Avoid zooming but stand closer if you can. Arrange / Redirect Avoid posed photos, if possible.

Direct / move / request / adjust your subjects to fit into your picture, if possible.

Good looking males, females and babies are always more attractive and look better on paper.

Put in / includes “tools” into your pictures to make it more believable / real. Angles Avoid shooting from your height or point-of-view.

Eye-level, lower, higher, wider, narrower and etc.

A better picture is probably just a few centimeter and/or degree away.

Shoot as many pictures as possible from various angles. Be creative by breaking the rules. Trial and error through experiments.

Practice, practice and practice.

Learn from your mistakes.

Learn from other photographers and friends. Photography is fun! Have fun and enjoy yourself during the process. :) Thank You!
