Sureness! I-set natin for next month para medyo madami-dami tayo ma-encourage na sumama :D

Isip na kayo kung saan maganda mag photowalk, kung sakali. Ang naiisip ko kasi UP Sunken Garden, Eastwood, Intramuros...

Hi mga sis! My friend will buy her D7000. Online seller.
For 50k ata. Hindi kaya bogus yun? Hehe.

Parang mura kasi?

Something for everyone who's into photography :D

http://blog.epicedits.com/2010/09/17/10-things-photographers-should-not-do/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+EpicEditsWeblog+%28Epic+Edits+Weblog%29&utm_content=Google+Reader


1. DON'T EXPECT RESULTS OVERNIGHT
Learning photography takes time and that goes for the artistic and technical aspects. Sure, you might be artistically and/or technically inclined, but you probably wont have galleries begging for your photos a month after you pick up your first camera. The process of learning photography and developing a personal style can take years (or even a lifetime). Just keep at it and you should start to notice improvements in your work as the months turn to years.

2. DON'T LUST FOR NEW GEAR
New gear is exciting, isnt it? Bigger better cameras, faster lenses, filters, tripods, flashes, bags, etc. Dont get me wrong its fine to get excited over this stuff. But dont make it your lifes goal to constantly buy the next best thing on the market. My advice is to buy new gear when you need it rather than when you want it. Youll know that you need something when you repeatedly find yourself missing opportunities (or even paying jobs) due to a lack of some feature or piece of equipment.

3. DON'T BE AFRAID TO FAIL
This one goes for anything in life failure leads to success, improvement, and learning. You might screw up one or two shots from time to time, but youll remember those mistakes next time you head out (and hopefully you wont make them again).

4. DON'T GET COCKY
Whether its seemingly justified or not, nobody really likes a cocky bastard. So you sold a print, got into a gallery exhibit, got featured on some big website, etc thats great, but dont let it go to your head. Dont talk down to other photographers or put yourself on a pedestal. If you do, its only going to drive people away.

5. DON'T IGNORE THE CRITICS
If you share your photos anywhere on the web, youve probably had unsolicited critiques. Of course, youre more than welcome to ignore them, but it usually doesnt hurt to read them and think about it. You might just learn something or improve a photo. But, keep in mind that not all advice is good advice.

6. DON'T MAKE IT COMPLICATED
Photography is relatively simple on the technical side. Too many times, Ive seen new photographers get hung up worrying about modes and settings when they really dont need to. As you continue to shoot and educate yourself, youll pick up the technical stuff quite easily. Besides, if you worry too much about the technical side, youre more likely to miss shots entirely.

7. DON'T STEAL IDEAS
This goes for any form of creative expression. You see what I did at the top of this article? I gave credit where credit is due because I borrowed an idea and turned it into something of my own. Same thing for photos if you borrow a concept from another photographer, make sure you give them credit. And look at it this way if you inspired others to create new things, wouldnt you like it if they gave you recognition for that?

8. DON'T NEGLECT YOUR GEAR
Cameras and other photographic equipment can be delicate at times. With the cost of cameras and lenses today, its worthwhile to take care of them. Try not to bang it around on things, drop it, get it wet, etc. And keep your gear clean if you want it to last lens elements and sensors in particular.

9. DON'T IGNORE THE RULES
The rule of thirds, symmetry, leading lines, perspective, background, depth of field, framing, crop, and so on. Youve probably come across some of the basic rules of photography either on the web or in a book. Then you also see advice out there saying break the rules. So whats the answer? Follow them? Break them? Heres the thing theres a major difference between breaking the rules on accident and breaking the rules on purpose. Its called intent, and thats what separates the good from the bad. So learn the rules, then learn how to break them.

10. DON'T STOP LEARNING
Probably the worse thing a photographer (or any hobbyist/professional) can do is stop learning. There is a ton of stuff to learn about photography and art in general, and the flow of new information only increases as technology advances. So always be open to learning new things even if you think you know it all!

Around mid-morning? Anung week? Suggestions sa venue?

thanks for sharing sis!  :)

i'm planning to enrol in sir nicolay's basic photography class. i checked his blog, and mukhang ok ang classes nya kasi it would be from a real teacher's perspective. isip ko kasi baka masyado technical if i would take basic photography lessons from a die-hard photography. besides, mas affordable and reasonably-priced yung classes nya. meron na ba sa inyo mga sis, na naka-attend ng class nya? how was it?  :)

and lastly, kelan EB? baka abutin na tayo ng Christmas nyan.. sabagay, a Christmas photowalk is not a bad idea...  :)
