photography, hobby, memories

20 Aug

i like taking pictures, especially candid shots of people.

but generally i take really bad pictures. when i do remember, i try to observe the rule of thirds, but the real problem is that i tend to capture my subjects in the most unflattering ways – eyes half-closed, mouth gaping, hair in the face, weird expression, double/triple chin showing, etc. unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on who’s point of view) i can’t post my collection of candid shot fails or i will be left with zero friends ^^;

my incompetence behind the lens aside, what i like best about taking pictures is that after awhile i can go back to look at them and either recall the moment or very often, see things from a totally different perspective. it’s almost like the photo was taken by someone else.

do you prefer to be in front or behind the lens?
