I have always my camera with me…so, when I saw this pretty girl, I asked her to pose for me. She was reading a book and I liked the light on her face ( the light was reflected by the white pages of the book ).

Always carry your camera with you ( in your hand! ): you cannot miss any moment!

Focus on details: try to simplify a photos and search for little particulars and peculiars

Legs of a woman

 

Move your feet: try to have more shots of the same scene and from differents point of view

 

Be patient! Sometime we have to wait for a long time to take a good photo ( for the photo below I waited for a lot of time until a person moved to the right place )

Sometime we can interact with our subjects ( don’t always take a photo from your belly. For the photo below I asked the girl to pose for me )

Try to see the word with the eyes of a child ( in the pictures below I saw an “octopus” with shoes in the first one and a Saint with his halo in the second one )

 

Are you always here? Take your camera and go!!
