My Photo Gallery & Some Photography Tips – By Shatha Akeel

Photos can be taken all the time and at any place.  It’s become easy with the cameras of our mobile phones.

Here are some tips that may help you to take nice pictures:

1. Keep your photos simple

2. Get in close – zoom in

3. Shoot pictures every day

4. Use gridlines to balance your shot

To switch the grid on…

* iPhone: Go to “Settings,” choose “Photos & Camera,” and switch “Grid” on.

* Samsung: Launch the camera app, go to “Settings,” scroll down and switch the “grid lines” option to “on.”

5. Focus on one subject


Capturing Surrounding Beauty is My Hobby – By Shatha Akeel

Photography Credits: Markgraf-Ave

I think that each of us has a hobby to practice away from work, home routine, or maybe just to escape our daily life problems..

For me it’s different…

I’ve loved photography since I was little ..

I used to hold that black camera and take a photo of what I see beautiful in my eyes ..

I took photos of myself, my family, my friends , my stuff, every thing

It’s my passion…

Here, I would like to share with you some photos taken by me:

Some see photography as a hobby and passion and others see it as a waste of time. Opinions differ about this hobby.

Personally, I believe that having a passion for photography is not just to shoot photos. Let’s just say that it’s the perfect way to make people view things through our lenses.

10 Travelling tips – By Natalia Oparka-Kharma

 1. Learn the essential phrases. No one expects you to speak the language fluently, but memorising a couple of useful sentences may help you get around and make new friends. Excluding “talk dirty to me” unless you want to get sold into places that definitely aren’t on your sightseeing list.

2. Get a map. Don’t count on Google maps to do the job for you. The moment you leave your country you don’t really know when you will get to use Wi-Fi again. And you surely don’t want to waste your holiday running like a headless chicken picturing your loved ones posting your photo on a box of milk.
