Before I really ventured into photography I looked at photographers and asked myself, "How tough izzit to just take ur camera, aim and shoot?"Originally Posted by zekai
After getting my 1st digital Point-and-Shoot, it reinforced my belief that photography is all about "Aim-Shoot-sharp picture-hahaha"
After getting my 1st DSLR, I realised how DEAD WRONG I WAS ON PHOTOGRAPHY as a subject. There are like 15 million stuff u've gotta know before a really good, powerful picture comes out.
After taking a course on Actual Day Wedding Photography, I realised that event coverage is not about "snap-snap-snap" but documentation of the event which involves capturing Kodak Moments.
After my first portrait shoot, I realised that shooting portraits is not about getting the chio model to just pose and u just shoot. A portrait photographer who doesn't know how to pose his model and snaps up (or down) the wrong way is as good as a vouyer photographer.
After my first landscape shoot, I realised that shooting landscapes is not about "stand there, steady, shoot". Its about bringing the entire landscape to LIFE, to show people the beauty of Mother Nature's Drawing Board.
Everyone's got different speciality. Sure, I bet all brothers here can do events. Nice exposures and all. No doubt abt skills and equipment knowledge. But how many can actually do a proper DOCUMENTATION of an event, which is what event photography is all about (I believe).
The definition of 'proper documentation', I'll have to leave it to the experts in this field liao since I don't 'do' events.
