Good violations

Good violations…



Shoot, shoot, shoot…I just love to capture the world around me: to capture reality, to make a little drama, or just to have a plain accidental good shot. I am zero in terms of photography and I can’t really afford to enroll at photography classes. Even with my equipment, I am broke. I don’t have the “tech-y” things, just my lo-fi 2004 model camera phone. But having the cutting-edge cameras is always my dream, but for now I settle for what’s on my hand. It’s pretty awkward when someone says “nice photographs, great cam you got there”. It’s has the belittling note by taking credits to the equipment rather than to the passion of the one who took it. It was just a month ago when my artsy facet has awakened due to someone’s photo blog. I was encouraged to make one just to spill out, if ever, my so-called artsy. I got hooked taking pictures though I don’t have even a bit of information about photography. But I was always impressed by my own work; love your own, lol. Then just last night I found a gadget magazine at my cousin’s pad. I’m not really tech-y but it was a star struck with the Holga cams and the pictures featured there by a camwhore and a photo violator. By scanning the whole mag, I realized that I am a violator of the photography tidbits.
First rule: The dead center. According to the rule, centering your point of interest will make your photo look unimaginative. But I do love to take pictures with dead center especially if there’s a good symmetry on the backdrop; it gives an amount of perspective.

Second Rule: About face. Eyes and facial expression are very important to photographers, they tell thousand of stories. But in my case, I love the drama of about face violation; it has the emotion and the trace of mystery. It allows the viewer to think on what’s on the subject’s mind and why there’s a drama.

Third Rule: Gritty. Sensitivity in Photography is very vital, the elimination of noise to create a sharp, clean, and really smooth images. But imperfections can sometimes create a point of interest. The grainy images can really make a holga-like effect.

just learned from a very well-known Pinoy fotog, it's not your camera it's the PC between your ears that matters when it comes to taking pics. Happy Halloween! you got good PC between your ears, magaganda pics mo e.
