    My golden rule is to enjoy what you're doing. If you're not enjoying, the pictures wont come out nice!

    According to legend the golden rule of photography is governed by the elements in your inner body, the Yin and Yan. You must maintain the natural flow of harmony. Not too much hot and spicy food as that will give rise to heatiness that clouds your eyesight. And go to toilet regularly as constipation will pollute your thoughts. And also sex in moderation especially those who shoot models for obvious reasons.

    Surround yourself with purity and goodness. And your photography will reflect such well-being.

    For the best time, place, space and person contributing to a good photo, one must observe that all forces e.g. earth, water, fire, wood etc must converge in the most fortuitous way.

    The heavenly dragon must not be thirsty. That's way you get raining days to ruin your photo outings.

    The Sun God must be benign and smiling for sunny days and blue sky for photography.

    The Wind Goddess must be contented and blessed for a windless day for macro photography.

    One can't leave all these elements to nature or luck.

    The conditions can be cultivated through offerings, prayers and deep meditation.
