Last week, my mum and I attended a photography course that was held by a local newspaper redaction.
The person who taught us was a 20-year-old ish guy who works there as a photographer. He started working there since 2008, so it has been 8 years.
He taught us not only how to use camera properly, but how to put messages into our photographs. Like, what do you want to tell to the viewers via your photographs?
“A picture worths a thousand words, that’s what they say,” he said one time. “So why don’t you all use that philosophy? Speak through your photographs.”
It’s not just about capturing a moment seems to miss, it’s about speaking to the viewers of your photographs, and giving meaningful messages with it.
We’re talking about moments that are frozen in a piece of photographs, completely stay still and we want that moment to be remembered by us, by the one who captured it.
So, come on. Give it a try. Try to capture something with a DSLR camera, a pocket camera, or even your phone. Try and speak through your pictures.
Let me know in the comments below, are you interested to become a photographer. Do you like to capture things, and feel like it’s your masterpiece? I want to know!
