      • This particular photo was taken in 2006 with a Canon 20D. That model is now discontinued. These days I use a Canon 5D and 5D II. But remember though, it’s the photographer that “sees” the possibility, not the camera.

      • Wow, now I use Canon 550D.
        Yes, I thik that. But if you take a photo, the result is unsightly hehehe 🙂
        Why you don’t make an article about how to take good photos? Em… or is it made?

      • Becoming a good photographer is like playing a musical instrument. It takes time and practice. Lots of it. As for writing an article, no I haven’t but there are many to be found on the internet. Just search using words like “how to improve/take better photographs”. Use whatever words for what you what to learn. There are a ton of articles. I constantly get emails or see things on the internet on how to take better photographs.

    • I would need to see some of your photos to give some tips otherwise I wouldn’t know what to say. Do you have a website or someplace to see some?

      October 16, 2014 at 11:43 am

      • Wow, it’s seems to be very helpful to me hehehe 🙂
        Em… visit my blog at papabackpacker.wordpress.com but it’s in Indonesia language, is it problem? Or can I send to your email? 🙂

        October 16, 2014 at 11:48 am

      • Sure, you can send it to my email.

        October 16, 2014 at 12:01 pm

      • second thought, language doesn’t matter because I’m looking at the photos. The third one on the homepage is too contrasty. Too dark on the bottom and the sun is washed out. Do you use photoshop or some other program like that? Many photographers would go in the darkroom to balance exposure and other things. Many photographers, like me, now use photoshop like a digital darkroom. With the photo I would lighten the bottom and try to burn in the sun. I would then lessen the contrast.

      • I’m sorry too late to reply this, because i’m busy in the last day hehe 🙂
        Yes, i’m using photoshop 🙂
        Wow it’s the best tips that I can get in hehe 😀
        So, over contrasly isn’t make my photos seen real. It’ real?

        Oh that’s building, it called Van Der Wijck Fort.
        True that what you say, after I observed it’s look dark at bottom and bright at upper. It’s look too rigid. It’s right?

        No, my camera is on manual mode. I’m still learning so, the setting still carelessly hehehe 😀
        But, tips that you give to me is very helpful to me. Thank You 🙂

        Yes, it’s me. Look handsome? Hehehe 😀
        So, that photo is enough?

        Wow, i’m glad that you read my posts. Thaak You, you must try it and share to me hehehe 😀

        I’m happy to chat and were given tips by you 🙂 Thank You so much 🙂

      • Hopefully a little helpful.

      • the photo of the building further down the page has the same problem – too dark on the bottom and too light on top. Using photoshop as a digital darkroom might improve the photo by dodging the bottom and burning in the top. Those terms – dodging and burning in – are traditional darkroom terms. Also the photographs are a little too saturated in color. Another photo further down with a sunset and what looks like a person is also too dark. I assume that your camera is on automatic. Maybe you could start by simply varying the exposure compensation button. (look for it on your camera) Then give a little more exposure for dark subjects and a little less for overly bright ones. when the sun is in the sky, then it’s tricky but that’s where photoshop as a digital darkroom would help to balance between the dark and light.

      • the photo of the man (is it you?) looking into the camera with the field in the background is good. One thing that helps with the photo is that the sky isn’t too bright or the land too dark.
