I know that you’ve heard of the expression “people can talk with their eyes” so I won’t try to explain it with words, but rather explain myself with pictures. The theory here is that pictures become great training aids if you use them right. The pictures by themselves could be rather bland, but once the point is explained, it becomes very clear. Let me show you — In this picture : This lady is doing a lot of talking with her eyes. I see admiration, honor, integrity, respect and a lot of love. The eyes are telling a story. You probably wouldn’t understand unless you knew the rest of the story, and this could come with a lot of words, but it would be much easier with a picture that was not edited. This picture: You can see that she is looking at someone pretty special. This is her mother and she is recovering from a major operation. (I am very happy to say that she is recovering nicely and should enjoy a lot years of excellent health as a result of the success.) Now you can see the reason the first picture shows so much emotion. The two pictures with the written explanation does complete the story. Yes, the names, times, dates and all that stuff is very important but only to those that know and are either family or close friends. It could be your daughter and yourself in the picture, but the expressions will be the same, if you just look for it. Oh Yes, the second picture also shows need for a further word picture. While we are chatting about pictures, never edit the pictures while in the camera. Just don’t do it – EVER! Be patient and download to your computer to get a much bigger picture. You never know what is hidden in those smaller photos – you could have some great surprises !!!
Can you readily see the happiness in this young lad’s eyes ?
What about this picture? See happiness in these eyes? In both of the pictures above, they become pretty apparent. The younger sets, both the children and animals are pretty well self – defining. My point in all this is that you have to see the picture and try to understand its meaning. Generally this will come in the first glance, but if you slow down and really look, you will see a lot more. By the way, the first two pictures were taken with a:
Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR Digital Camera (My opinion, you don’t have to have a camera with a 2 foot long lens to get great pictures.)
But the other two above were taken with one of those little pocket cameras about the size of the palm of your hand. You know which ones I mean. This picture is one taken with our first original digital camera we had. It was taken in 2008, long before today’s technology, and no, I don’t remember what the make of the camera was. It is proof that good memory pictures seldom come from expensive cameras. For “other than professional” pictures, just about any digital camera will take fine photos. I always try to take a bunch, pick the best and dump the rest. I don’t always succeed, but I do get some very good memory pictures.
