In The Name of Good Blog Pics

Sorry guys, about the low quality pictures I’ve been using on my blog posts. They’re only taken using my camera phone of 1.3MP. The poor me haven’t got a digicam and I dread bringing one around. I have to agree that my candid pictures are also not that focused.

For example the recent hairstyle pics I put up. They happen to be too out of focus. Some are even blurry due to movements. Guess I should take another approach in capturing. Instead of candidly like that, I should talk these guys into posing for me.

Lets say you were one of them

Me : Hello, Sawasdee ka. Sabai dee rue?

You : Sawasdee (??? Do I know you????)

Me : Well, I’m Akira, I’m not a local. Your hairstyle (pointing at hair) is sui mak mak.
I like it very much.

I’m praying you’re being very pleased with this compliment.
You may then be thinking, (and so…???)

Me : Can I take a picture of your hairstyle and maybe write about it in my blog?

ME expecting to be rejected or maybe get a taste of your fist. At the same time, ME praying hard that you feel the honour. Seriously, I don’t know. I just hope I can get a good picture instead of taking stealthily like I’ve been doing.


I wonder how you guys out there take pictures of strangers for your blog posts. I mean do you guys ask for permission or simply take candidly. Have you ever gotten your subject staring at you displeasingly when you snap them without their consent? This, I believe is definitely not your idea of a good snapshot. Or worse, have you got any unpleasant encounter while snapping strangers? Incident like your target came up and talked you into deleting the pics or getting his members to ambush you or something.

Seriously, I really need to know you professionals camera man out there do it. Appreciate your valuable comments very much!
