It has been about 6 months now since I bought my first DSLR camera that got me into photography.
After much thought I bought my second lens for a better shot on far subjects. I did get a good shot but after that it made me think, what really makes a good shot.A lot of people would say a good camera with a high megapixel will surely generate a good clean looking image and others it is a natural talent to get crisp and awesome shots. I am new to really taking photos though taking a snapshot is long been in me since having a phone with a camera should do the trick.
It is no doubt that a good camera would surely deliver a good image. I was torn between a Nikon and a Canon DSLR for my first DSLR camera and after consulting people I ended up on a Canon T3i or as branded in Asia as the 600D. Since its my only camera I have to use my Nokia C3 to take photos of my T3i.
The lens in this image is my new Sigma Telephoto Zoom APO DG 70-300mm(images taken with this lens will be featured in the next bog post). In my opinion though the gear is not enough to shot a great photograph. I remembered asking Jaypee David of Jaytograph how did he get awesome pictures in his travel blog and his answer really surprised me: you get to make one good shot after taking a thousand shots.
So taking a good image does not only require the best gear but also having the patience to make several shoots until you get the right one.But again others have a better perspective in taking a photograph. When I started learning how to take a good photo one lesson I learn is a bout good framing following the rule of thirds. It is simple putting your subject in a third of the frame focusing some features to fall on the imaginary intersection of vertical and horizontal lines that divides the frame into thirds.
At first people thought something is wrong with my hand or eye that instead of centering most of my images are off centered, and most people who take snapshots do, because that is how people know how to take a photograph(off course unless the intention is to put the subject in the center). Putting the subject a third into the frame artistically makes the image subject fall into the photo viewer’s line of sight thus creating a a focus into the beautiful in the image.
So what makes a good photo? I guess it boils down to three good gear, patience, and a good visualization of what you would life your photo be.
Her work is primarily a photo of her levitating(some on the famous jump shot style). Some of her work are really great that it looks like she is naturally floating while her background seems in the normal mode.
I discovered Animoto and made my first Animoto video showcasing some of my flower photographs. Click the link below and enjoy.

Have been planning this project.
Taking a photo of the three wall murals I see every weekend. These murals along Lower Tumon here in Guam are a reflection of Guam’s culture. I prayed for a sunny day and this morning it was indeed sunny but with some drizzle here and there, well that is how Guam is at times it rains on the other side of the road while its sunny on the other side.
Hope you like my photos.
This mural is right across Guam Visitor’s Bureau.
The below mural is found in the 4 way intersection right in front of Hilton Resort & Spa.
I was only able to get one picture of the mural in the road going up to Kmart due to the drizzle on a sunny morning.
While walking and shooting the murals I got some other eye catching imagery.
Was able to have a chance to try Urban photography.
Woke up early to get images of the early and the morning stuff of my area but it kinda ended into a blue sky and street photography.
Hope you get to check my images, would like to hear your comments and suggestions.
Everyday while waiting for our office server to backup I go around to take some practice photo shoot just as my “Kabalens” Ian Rayray said “Picture lng ng picture!”
Well in the office guess what I found?
Yup its Nemo or is it Nemo? Not sure I just practice taking closeup pictures and with varying settings and adjustments.
Check them out.
Any advice on closeup photography? Please leave yours in the comment box.
I decided to get my usual dose of Java at Coffee Beanery in Micronesia Mall instead of my usual Sunday coffee at Infusion.
While coming in I saw a co-worker and also passed by ABC store to check the price of my possible pasalubong but its kinda pricey will check some other possible pasalubong which is more lighter on the luggage and of course the pocket.
While walking can’t help but point and shoot some pictures but I was hesitant on some because 1) its a public place and 2) I might be charge with taking pictures without permit.
So check out some below hope you like it:

After getting my Sunday grocery was able to take some photos in the parking lot just outside Payless Supermarket. There is one section in Payless Supermarket that I wanted to photograph that is the vegetable section. I like how the tomatoes and all veggies are arranged. Next time I will take a photo and I hope the security wont stop me though.
My beloved girl friend gave me a pillow heart and its in my bed here in Guam were I work.
Was thinking of a subject for my first object shot and there it is. Thanks Mommy Krissy I love you and will see you soon mwah!
When I first came to Guam I was able to go around the Island in one day. Some photos I got while going here and there.
