photoblog image how to take a picture

how to take a picture

I just love the guy in this picture, it's not the most focused of my images but I like the energy. He is really into this picture thing, he is obeying the rules of point and shoot photography to the book (his book). Ok,  lets break this down;

1. Get close to your subject.

2. use your 2 legs as a tripod always and keep knees locked.

3. keep your elbows steady

4. Focus on your view finder, tell your subject to freeze and take the shot!!!

5. Close your tripod and call it a wrap!

I hope you have a nice weekend, see you on monday with another pic of the Washington Monument :)

Oh God...I hope I don't look like that when I shoot! Actually I know I do much stranger things than that, just ask my kids!

Great funny shot! I love it!
