Quest

A man went on a journey
to find something lost in his life
Destroy the world he does to deliver his mean

The message received but she never comprehend
it happen like was once before
He won’t give up untill she understand what they means

Demon try to stop the madness but there is no turning back
In the end she was destroyed together with her flaws.

I wrote it after finished reading The Winner Stands Alone
by Paulo Coelho

Better photography

1.Decide Your Goal

Do you want to document your everyday life , a hobbyist or trying to get Pro

2.Choose Your Arsenal

Camera are basically divided into 3 major groups

– Single Lens Reflex / Digital Single Lens Reflex

The advantage of the SLR/DSLR are on the lens where they are interchangeable so gives you more of creative freedom.

– Prosumer Camera / Superzoom

It is basically a mixed between DSLR and Pocket Camera. The sensor are the same with DSLR but the lens are not interchangeable but gives you very far zoom with it’s lens and you see the image through an LCD Screen. Best used for people that wants to get high quality image but don’t want the fuzz of changing lens every single time.

– Pocket Camera

The usual pocket camera with LCD screen with few basic feature and several mode to help you

BUT

The most important from all of them are

the skills of the photographer

not the camera.

3.Get Close with your camera

The first mistakes that people do when they buy something , is not reading the manual. How many of you buy something then just use it. This time try to open the manual book , it does help so you can maximize the use of your camera.

4.Learn the basic first

A good foundation is essential to photography, there are many of them but the most important is about the Composition. It is about where you put the subject on the photograph that you will take, just put the camera setting on Program if you are on DSLR or Superzoom and Manual for Pocket camera.

5.Read books , browse Youtube

The photography books are the things you need to learn about photography itself , try to find a good one. Youtube is also another source for learning. Most of the time I browse and find things that are interesting enough for me to learn.

6.Try different kind of photography

There are many types of photography out there , don’t just satisfied with one.

7.Use Photoshop not Sotoshop

From my personal point of view , photoshop or another image editing software is important. But photography itself lies on the skill of taking the photo not the skill of using photoshop. Now most of my time are spent on photoshop are used to crop the picture and adding some watermark to my work before they were uploaded , rarely use it for massive image overhaul .

After few of my first hunting , I used it a lot to correct the mistakes done when the photo was taken but now mostly used for cropping and and watermarking.

8.Learn from another artist

I do learn from another photographer by looking at their work and sometimes analyzing the photograph itself.

Probably you’re gonna ask when ? Well , I do it all the time by looking magazines , billboard , even movies.

9.Take Lot’s of picture

Nowadays there are no reason not to take hundred of pictures , memory card are getting cheaper each day

10. Have FUN

This one is the most important of all , now get out there and do it. Don’t just sit there in front of your computer.

Pro Photographer ?

I just uploaded the same Sushi photo from the last blog to my Deviantart because it’s about 2 weeks since I upload my last work. Then a friend made a comment about one of my work.

Which is this one , taken from my cousin wedding a few months ago. It was taken at the moment of  wedding vow , we call it as Ijab Kabul.

And one of his reply was

yeah.. i agree it is very tiring because i occasionally do the same thing here in Brunei. Not pro haha just basic stuff. canon?

I still dazed and confused because he thought I was a pro photographer. Nevertheless, the road to professional photography still far from over there are more things to come.

But now I do learn that there are people that appreciate my artwork.

Thnx once again for the fav to Jeffzz111 in Brunei.

Thinking

Im just an ordinary guyg with ordinary life. But it seems my life is getting out of hand for the past 2 years. There are things that I should’ve been done long time ago but they are

well I just don’t know what to say anymore

It all just happen when things are about to get right in the first place

Alrady tried harder than the lst time

but it’s not enough

i just keep worry about the future.
