Many of the readers could think that you guys now were me from a few years ago.

Hungry for photography information with a burning desire to add and continue.

Never once i lost the feeling. It was like a true desire that had accompanied me since I was 13 years old. Throughout my adult life where fashion and other interests have come and gone or simply diminished.

God does not allow me to get bored (it hasn’t happened for decades). However, each time I feel unenergetic in what I do, I move to the image. Just picking up one of my cameras and walking around seemed to “revive me”. Creativity or pursuit is an amazing thing and not infrequently there is something in the world to pick up or learn.

1. Think About the Brain

I always think differently about photography. I grew up with only one eye, thanks to a failed operation in the 1970s, broken archaeological tool from Australopithecus medical officers.

When you using one eye for your whole life, and then suddenly you start to using a camera in your early 30s, something dramatical happens! We become aware that the camera does not work like our eye. Not the 3D; I said about how the brain keeping images and such.

After birth, we got legs but our legs need some time to adjust and work along with our brain until we can walk around the shopping mall and such. Same goes with the eyes. They found that cables are faster than feet, but the important nerve pathway from our optic nerve to the mind requires time to chase its chemical footprint. We start to enjoy the level of light, then form, then edge, the relative position and such. Then, around the age of 3, we finally pursue a tagging system which allows us to generally understand what the “warehouse” is. Our brain has worked nonstop around that time to provide us with visual infrastructure and memories to activate this very watershed moment.

Now, let’s move fast today. We are older, our brain is growing, and we happen in a warehouse in the field. But this is not just any warehouse: it’s a warehouse that you want to watch your whole life. In the distance future, storms present at sunset. Beautiful; we keep it to our memory. The way we keep it in our memories is not like the technique the camera records images.

Let’s step on the next big thing: this is a philosophical reassessment about how the camera system works in reverse with how memories map out a scene, last is the process of superimposing visual reality with emotions and related memories with that scene. We see, we don’t only remember the warehouse but also remember each warehouse; we don’t just remember the storm but remember each storm. Aesthetic photos must tell stories epic memories, relating with different emotions that become one.

2. Go Get Your Own DSLR

Wow, look at the camera we have! It’s the smallest and slimmest and seems techno. Look! Fit in our pocket! Geez, we can take it to some events and parties, it’s very nice and comfortable. Oh, is this also 10 megapixels? Gosh. Well, that’s some good camera you have!

No, no. That’s a toy: keep it and give it to your children or any elementary school student and be serious. We all know that a 20-year-old punk at some market tells us that our pocket camera is elegant and exactly what we need. But listen carefully on what i’m about to say next.

Go get your use DSLR. For you who still don’t know, DSLRs are one of the cameras we see used by pros, not that gigantic one that you saw on sports zone.

Also, the angle is very important for landscapes. Aesthetically pleasing photography is not necessarily from the view, but often it is, and the following is imagined by not a few people when beautiful portraits is about to be made. So, lets talk about the angle for a bit.

If we are accustomed to using toy cameras, then we won’t get the experience we need to go further explore the world of photography. It’s like how you compare normal TV and HD TV, the last one gave you a better experience. The scenery is full and thick; clouds, sun, and mountains are all suitable; rivers and bridges are easily arranged; etc. After you work on a wide angle, our landscape will go breakthrough!

3. Camera is Your Travel Mate


Don’t just take out your camera in rare moments when you indeed conclude to set aside a few of your days for photography. Confront: we all people are busy with real life, and set aside three to four hours for any extracurricular activity is difficult. But it only takes a few seconds to get inspiration for a photo, and there’s no point if your camera goes home.

Keep in the trunk of our car in a cute little portrait backpack, with not a lot of lens choices. We never know when we will witness something beautiful. Use this opportunity to pick up at least one portrait a day. Not necessarily a broad landscape; it is something small and exciting that we may not have realized before.

4. Mistakes are Progress

Make a few mistakes. Throw ourselves and our artwork there and see what works and what doesn’t. Show your merchandise to real friends who will give us honest feedback.

Get ourselves online and start making friends by pursuing different photographers we respect. Beg and beg them to come and watch one or two of your portraits and submit honest feedback. They will alienate you, but only take your medicine, lick your wounds, and go there and improve.
