Contrary to general thinking, taking a good pictures doesn't require great techniques or skill and wealth of knowledge in photography.

Each year, there are hundreds of million photographs being processed at labs. Well, majority of us are not professional photographers who based on the profession to make a living. How often we felt disappointed after viewing the processed prints or slides and asked ourself - I thought that moment was "nice & great" and what happened to my camera?

The point and shoot cameras are forming the bulk of the market to the camera makers - many termed it as the "bread & butter" models, almost 95% are auto-everything, it doesn't mean P&S cameras can't take great pictures, the key element is the vision and thinking behind the camera anyone holds.

In this site, we just list down some important points need to be noted before tripping your camera shutter button. try to digest as much as possible, the next time you can come back from the color lab, I hope you'd be feeling much more happier.

To begin with our sessions, remember TWO important things:

Keep Your Camera Ready: How many once-in-a-lifetime pictures have you missed because you didn't have a camera with you?

It's easy to avoid that frustration by keeping a camera handy. Spontaneous moments make priceless pictures. To capture them, you need a camera with you. In day to day life, it is impossible to have a camera with you all day long, If your regular camera is too large to carry conveniently, consider a low-cost pocket-sized model as a stand-by, in your handbag, your briefcase, your office..

Just spare some time the next time before your trigger your shutter release !

I used to browse around within some photographic community on the Net. Everybody is very busy constructing and filling up materials on their website - except taking care of of new entry users' to acquire this basic knowledge of Photography. No help - somebody has to do it, so I kick off with these pages, hopefully it will benefit some. Other back-to-basics resources like Aperture, Shutter Speeds etc can be found at: Here. For other general knowledge in the field of photography, you can try here.
