I say non-proffessional because, well, I’m not. Tip number 1:

The most important idea personally, is to take many many, many, many, many pictures. Even if it is from the same spot, same angle, same subject, take multiple shots. Even today, when I sometimes take only one capture, from the same spot, angle, subject, etc, I find it’s not really what I was aiming to get out of it. With multiple captures you can be sure that you will have the one that looks just right (with the correct amount of post-processing of course!).

Here is a perfect example, it pains me everytime I look.. it could have been perfect !!!

This was my first time using my new manual lense, unfortunately the subject is far too out of focus.
