Look, listen and learn

It’s not about the camera. It’s who’s behind the camera. You might not have a “real” camera. You might only have a smart phone. That’s OK. I can teach you how to take stunning photographs of your kids, grand kids, pets, husband, your hobbies. You might not have a camera at all, just a computer or a tablet. I want to show you how to use those to get “pictures/photographs”. Especially useful when families live abroad…

The most important thing in photography is seeing and make sure that the seen emotions gets captured. Manual, program, aperture and shutterspeed are merely spark plugs, brakes and alternators. I don’t know what or where the alternator sits in my car, yet I can drive it. Photography is the same. It’s ten percent technical and 90 percent people knowledge. If you know how to look at people, you can photograph them.
