Thread: If you want to learn photography, join ClubSNAP.

    Default If you want to learn photography, join ClubSNAP.

    I was outside MBS last year shooting alone while my wife was window-shopping. A young couple approached me with their newly purchased entry level SLR. They wanted to know how to use this SLR and how to take picture with background blur. I explained to them briefly what were shutter speed, aperture and ISO. I told them their camera may not easy to achieve background blur. At this moment my wife was calling me and I was hurry to leave. To explain the background blur issue in a hurry, I took a photo of his girl friend with my camera and show it to them. Before I leave I told them, ‘If you want to learn photography, join ClubSNAP.’

    Below is the photo I took to show them the background blur. Perhaps they are already Club Snap members now.

    It may be a good idea to ask the couple for permission first before you post a photo of the guy's wife/girlfriend, here in Clubsnap.

    Tell them no need to buy expensive big aperture lenses.

    Use software to achieve similar effect.

    The husband was busy playing with his new toy. For photographers we go for the lady, that's why all the models in Photo Shoot forum are ladies. But for journalists they will go for both.

    While it is a good thing to share the joy of photography, and share tips. It is not the wisest to post other people's gf picture in Kopitiam. This is not HWZ EDMW.

    Imagine if others do the same with a picture of your significant other. You wouldn't be pleased as well.
