    Default how to make a picture speaks a thousand wordH?

    hi,

    a newbie here...and a newbie question:

    how to make a picture speaks a thousand words?

    by skills? - like handling of camera, different setting etc

    by perception? -how you compose your subject in the frame

    by instinct? -how you react to your environment

    by luck? -trial and error

    it starts with the eye: not equipment, not technique, not skill, not training

    can u see a picture that speaks a thousand words to you?

    have you seen any recently?

    if not then go look for pictures that other people have said thousands and thousands of words about it, eg Mona Lisa

    then ask yourself was it worth these thousand of words? and if so can you add something that was never said about it before?

    although a 1000 mile journey starts with one step, it helps if the steps are in the right direction, and not going in circles either

    Instead of making my pictures speak, I let the people who see them interpret themselves what the picture is about. This way, I keep an open mind.
