A PHOTOGRAPHER is the one who knows where to stand, where to look, what to see and how to use his/her tool called camera. Camera is only the tools. Choose the right gear, at the right time. THINK BEFORE YOU SHOOT.remember, a good photographer makes the photo.
Approving that, i am using my canon compact camera , CANON G12, while wandering around the TANGKAK town,(JOHOR,MALAYSIA) searching where the subject to point to, looking for a clean background, and wait for a moment before i shoot. AND the results as shown below:
To get this images, as usual, use all your communication skills, i used to says hello, giving a sincere eyes looks, a BIG smile, and slowly approaching them (don’t forget to show your camera, and luckily I’m only brings a compact camera,hhiihhihi). I’m joining this uncle and his friend, sit besides them, and looks at what is he doing (takes my time about 30 minutes) After that, waste time no more, the uncle so comfort and concentrate on his games, and I so comfort on shooting. so sporting this uncle(and his friend of course).
Dont forget to says thank you before you are leaving.
