I learn photography from books and Internet. However none can compare learning from Alphanatics. During Sony Alpha outings, the moment I appreciate most is the picture review session at the end of the day. Everyone will have their best shots presented to judges and receive feedback and positive criticize from them. It’s like a reality TV show but it does make us a better photographer. Although all of us using the same camera brand, but each photographer has different story of every subject and scenary. To shoot good photo is not just technical control of shutter speed and aperture, but thoughts and values embed in the picture. The cognitive process between photographer and camera can break the rule of third and sunny 16 rule. We are not only learning to snap photo, same time we are being train to evaluate and appreciate good photos. That is part of a photographer journey.
This is one of the earliest shot I have taken using A100.
