Photographing 101

教授近物拍摄的基本。遇到的这帮专业摄影师真的是耐心到极点。手把手的教授拍摄要点。就差没有帮我按快门了。

True photographers have eyes that can spot intriguing subjects which often overlooked by beginners. So, on our way back, they spotted this flower, and decided that it's the time to give Marsha the lesson of Macro 101.

It was such a hands-on training with Ron that he almost set up all the settings of my camera and provided the detailed instructions on the composition. The only thing left for me to do was to simply push the button. Oh, BTW, the photo-shooting position in the picture was a total ab work-out. :) The left was how the flower finally turned out to be.

Marsha (enthusiastically showing the picture to Teddy):"Teddy, hey, look at this! How do you like this?"
Teddy (shaking his head):"This needs some cropping. How could you leave the flower right there in the middle?


Totally confused.. 光圈,焦距,快门速度,。。。。,这一连窜的摄影专业术语把我搞得晕头转向。


Pretending to be a photographer. 这个是鼻子上插两根葱就能装象的时代啊!


A cute photographer! Only after Teddy's photo-shops. :) 经过图像处理之后,不想当美女都难啊!


By the end of the day, after exhausting the patience from Ron, Teddy and Prakash and owning them bags of cookies, I finally got the basic understanding of the photo-shooting 101.
Prakash:"You guys are totally confusing her..."
Ron:"Marsha, we got you so confused that you are looking at the wrong side of the camera..."


Two pictures taken with Teddy's ideas. If the pictures did not turn out to be great, it's only because the teacher is not very good. :)
