A Lovely Day..

So the SO and I decided to go out last Thursday and just eat at Wing-stop located near Riverside. I saw the nice fountain and decided to take pictures. It was just a lovely day.. I also saw some flowers and began clicking my camera here and there :P I just love flowers as my subject. ♥♥♥

Ok, one person commented me on my FB and told me that my pics are nice but I have to apply the "rule of thirds" to make my pics nicer. So the clueless that I am, I googled it and here's what I got:

Rule of Thirds -  The rule states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.

Uhm, ok I understand the concept but honestly, I take pictures because I find the object/subject nice or interesting. I don't take pictures because I want photography as my career.

But of course I'm willing to learn all those rules once I have a professional camera to play with or if I have taken photography classes - which I'll probably do once I get a free time (who knows when..)

Anyway, the common question they always ask me is if I photoshop. No, I don't. I just play with the Scene Presets of my Point and shoot camera and color correct + watermark. That's all :)

Nature Lover

Hello guys! It's my 1st post here on my new bloggie called: shotsbyiyah ♥♥

First, let me tell about myself: I have never taken any photography classes, and I am aware that my photos are not that great. I also do not own any DSLR. Yes, all these photos are taken from my Canon Powershot sd780.

I created this blog because I love taking pictures, especially the nature as my subject. It just makes me happy. Thank you for lurking. lol.
