Are your skills good? Or do you think you have good photography skills? Honestly, i don't think i have. I just snap and snap and snap. If i'm not happy with the shot, i'd just keep snapping the same object till i'm satisfied. But half the time it looks the same. Haha.

I didn't take anwy photography lessons but I am good in taking pictures, even with myself. I try to look at a different angle before capturing the "target" Keep it up, practice makes perfect

I am not good at photography, but I like to carry a camera with me, to record the beautiful and special views, especially at the turn of the seasons, or when going on a trip. The problem with me is I cannot wait until reaching the best position of the spot. Actually the photos taken with digit camera are mostly limited by the technology. They seem lack a touch of contrast and good feel of 3D. I like much more some of the old black and white photos taken decades ago.

I like taking picture with camera in my phone, of course taking pictures is not something that I do, professionally. For me, what I do with my phone's camera is good enough, though the camera is not that good. I might not say that I am good at photography, but I believe that I am not bad in it.

When you "snap" a photo, it's usually a quick response. If you want good photography skills, you need to slow down and "make" a photo. If you see something interesting, really look at it and find out what caught your eye? Was it the color, the shape, the light on the object, etc. Almost any photograph can be made better by moving closer. And don't forget to try different angles. Walk to the side, to the back, or crouch down. Use different camera settings. Zoom in or zoom out. When you zoom in, you usually eliminate some of the background (it's blurry), and that almost always makes a better photograph. Digital photography is great, but it can make you sloppy because you no longer have to pay for film or developing. Take your picture and then immediately look at it on your camera screen rather than shooting more and more photos. Look at the photo and if you don't like it, determine why before you shoot again. SLOW DOWN.

I do pretty well. I'm not a professional by any means, but it has become a passion lately and I've been learning everything I can about photography. It's hot and miss for me though. I post online and I get lots of good tips and feedback. I've been experimenting with different lighting techniques lately and more have come out bad than good. haha

well am i good? wait until you see my picture... disaster!lol honestly for me there is no good or bad. it's all about preserving a moment that could last a life time. i always believe that in visual arts you don't need to be the best to show art. at the end of the day it's just how you can connect to the people who are looking at your pictures. you know the facial expression that they will throw at you after looking at the photos. and that my friend is photography!

I do think I have good photography skills. I know I'm not the best photographer out there, but I'm confidant that I can take a good picture! I enjoy the photos that I take, and I guess that's really all that matters!
