About Photography

All seems well with my new Caplio R3 digital camera.

I've heard it said that there are rules for taking good photos. That, for example, you should never point your camera towards the sun, take photos when it's too dark, don't cut off people's heads/feet, etc. Well, I routinely break all of these rules. Read the 'How To' books and you'll learn how to take tasteful, but unimaginative pics. I often don't even bother to look through the view-finder. Don't think, just shoot, is the Lomo credo. Any camera above 3 megapixels can easily produce photos you can crop severely without any real loss of quality. So don't worry too much about framing it, as you can always fix it on the computer later. Having said that, I do try to avoid using too much Photoshop. I can't stand over-photoshopped images. I want to see the photo, not the software.
