By lynettetanblogs | March 25, 2010

Always be on the look out for reflections that can provide a more three-dimensional effect to your pictures! These can really add depth to your picture composition.

By lynettetanblogs | March 25, 2010

Colours and patterns are also critical elements of good picture composition. Photo objects with rich colours make naturally good shots that require very little post-processing.

My Sunday with Giselle…

By lynettetanblogs | March 15, 2010

If there is any phrase to describe the Singapore Dance Theatre’s rendition of this two-act ballet, it has to be hauntingly romantic. Rosa Park, who played Giselle, portrayed the character really well and won several “bravos” from members of the audience. The Sunday afternoon matinee was nothing short of a family affair, with kids as…

My thoughts on…Kitaro
