I owned my very first camera when I was 13, it was a Yashica 35mm SLR camera that my late father bought to me, that was how I started my journey to capture the wonderful moment that comes into my sight. Other than learning photography, I had a chance to develop the black / white photos in the darkroom. I am glad that I keep this hobby until now, I learned new tricks, experience with new skills from time to time, and I am passionate to share what I have learned to newbies who are just entering to the world of photography.


A picture is worth a thousand words, everybody has memorable moments that we want to keep and share with our loved one.

I would like to share with beginners, some tips are applicable to smartphone cameras, so that you all can capture the best shot that you will always feel the moment when you look back the photo you have snapped.
