Let Colors Flourish!

Leaves do not only come in green, I’ve said.  And their colors could be so amazing that they are not solely supporting roles to flowers! This plant caught my eyes instantly – red, purple, dark green, light green, and white! … Continue reading

Autumn Leaves

We have reached the Autumn season according to Lunar Calendar, and I definitely feel humidity drops while my skin needs more hydrating moisturizers.  Another sign of Autumn is sure to be red and gold leaves. However, we do not see … Continue reading

Salty Fishes

Today we have a trip to Coloane for some dried seafood and taken this pic about salty fishes.  Doesn’t have any smell at all, just like when you are looking at this photo now. 🙂

Angel & Pandora’s Box

Clouds are really interesting dudes.  They change every day and can be anything. Look at this photo.  Can you see an angel with wings kneeling down with a puppy in her hands, both trying to figure out what’s inside the … Continue reading

LIKE,算什麼?

有否試過自己認為拍得很美的相片在FB post出來卻沒人Like? 不如先以逆向思考想想朋友為何會Like你的相片。他們按Like,可能是期待歐遊已久而你登了巴黎鐵塔;今天突然想吃拉麵而你剛巧打了卡上傳照片;跟你一樣喜歡哈囉喂;又或只因近來你Like過他們的近況所以禮尚往來。基本上沒多少次是因為感覺你的攝影技術了得或相片很有feel的。 你肯定作品很美。他們不按Like,又是為什麼?可能是同輩中太有水準,他們感覺被比下去,嚇怕了。就是有些人不能放開心懷的,別見怪;可能覺得你大部份作品也很好,不想按太多次Like,並認為你們應已很有自信,不需要鼓勵;他們不是專業,沒膽量評定好或不好。 既然Like這個小按鈕是那麼的玄妙,我們實在不必過於在意Like或沒Like。 本人就曾從以下經驗中得知,在朋友心目中,我照片的質素究竟如何: 1)     與女友們飯局,她們都不期然要求我拿她們的相機替她們拍照。 2)     與久未見面的朋友吃飯,談著談著,她說:「我老公讚你拍的相片很美!」,隔山打牛的讚美聽起來永遠比較可信,況且她的老公也是攝影發燒友! 3)     自從拍過數幅藍天與白雲的照片後,發現有十多位的朋友也抬頭留意起天空來,舉機拍攝,而且用同一個app、構圖相近。就如我們對大師的作品心生愛慕繼而臨摹,當然我不是大師只是初哥,但相信他們認為我某張相片很有感覺,具欣賞價值,而且他們也能做到 (我只用iPhone拍攝),才會有此舉動。I’m honored。不介意之餘,希望大家也能拍到令自己快樂、有滿足感的照片。 4)     澳門政府資助每位市民MOP5,000持續學習。有天,我在FB收到一個簡短訊息,就只一個網址。Click開來,原來是一個要用單反相機的攝影課程,導師從香港而來,應該不錯。要知道我從未正式用過單反,我這位朋友也是資深影友,他這一小小的提示,大概是看到我的潛質,說是時候開拓我的更多可能性了。 當然若你真的希望知道別人對自己作品的評價,就不應只放在FB,應分享到專業攝影網站多作交流,甚至寄去參加比賽,讓真正懂得攝影的人來對你的照片給予意見。但最終,創作的精髓不是「What do you think?」,而是「What do YOU think?」 (不是其他人怎麼想,而是創作者本身是否認同其作品。) 共勉之!

So often, good shooting materials are so handy.  They are already in the right places, with the perfect lighting, poses and color.  Look at this common plant, it looks great under the shade of the taller bush right next to … Continue reading
