    The most important thing is to "look" like a photographer.

    Everything else is secondary.

    This is the step-by-step guide to taking good pictures: (Part 2)
    15. Surf the web to find how to say "bokeh" (nevermind the meaning)
    16. Learn how to change lens with one hand (try this)
    17. Stand next to bedroom window and take snapshot of street (streetshooter?)
    18. Then walk along neighbourhood (but feel shy of taking out yr cam)
    19. Check newspaper for next fashion show (finally)
