As i am trying to relate some photographic terms in chinese, could not find in on clubsnap. This is what i found from another site. I find it hard to discuss about photography with chinese friends.
:)

Don’t need to smile / no smile necessary. 可以不用笑

If anyone of you have others to share feel free to share it with the rest. Google translate does not help much

I personally want to know what is ISO, noise control, critique and complimentary comments in chinese.

Thanks in advance.:thumbsup:

底片感光度 is ISO

As a side note, there is this chinese forum aka fengniao but the last time i tried to join but cannot because they need some ? china registered number to verify or something.
Anyone got any luck ?

some of my suggestions:

Feel free to be yourself - 不必太拘束 / 放轻松 / 自然點
no smile necessary - 不必笑
Don’t mind me - 不必在意我 / 不必理我
One more, please - 再来一个
No peace sign, please - 请别做V手势
