Be your best photo-take-outer
So here's the thing, I LOVE pictures! I love taking and at times being in pics. Now, I'm no photographer and I don't own an arsenal of cameras and all that, however, I'm armed with my trusty Samsung Galaxy S7, selfie stick, at least two/three photo editing apps (Candy Camera, a color story, sometimes photo 360 and well, the s7 has some very great simple filters and editing options.), not to mention canva etc., and a Nikon camera, which i personally find a bit too bulky for my tastes, but the pics are sweeeeet, and an Olympus stylus tough(have had for a number of years)
when i travel, even during my day-to-day i find myself always taking a pic. these pics aren't for anyones likes or comments, but simply for me because i want to and i found whatever i was looking at to be simply interesting to me. having said that, when i'm travelling and again, around in my day-to-day, i'm not thinking about what others will like about the pics i'm taking, i'm selfish, it's all about me!
My beau always says to me, 'you have a great eye' and he hits me with "ooh baby the composition" and blah blah blah "is simply great," I've even had other photographers tell me the same about some of my pics, and i say thank you kindly with pride, because truthfully, i have zero idea about composition, and lighting and all that stuff. i see it, i like it, i snap it...boom, done! taking pics is just one of the many things that makes me truly happy. it's a great feeling to be amongst nature or even the concrete jungle, people moving around me and i can single out and focus on one subject and take a pic, it's like the cherry on top the ice cream for me.
ooh you thought this post was going to give you in details how best to take an amazing shot? you thought wrong honey and i'm so sorry, but as I've stated, i am not a photographer, i'm simply a gal with a camera/smartphone who sees and snaps, but i know what i like and how i like my pics to look, so i do my best to make sure i'm happy with what I've snapped.
the take away from this drivel post: take pics because it makes you happy and you love what you're looking at...who cares if others like it or not.
