      Thank you for that nice comment, I really can’t answer it though in that frame work! I view myself as just an average hobbyist photographer that gets lucky some times. The only thing I can say to you is to take a lot of picture of your subject, don’t limit your self to just a few shoots. Try different angel and distance from your subject. All of this works for my, it doesn’t limit me to a signal outcome but opens me up to better opportunities and outcomes. On a given nature outing I may take 3 to 4 hundred images but only utilize a small hand full at the end of the day. When you go back through the images you mite see something you originally did not, or maybe the clarity of one images is better then another. Best of luck, thanks again – Michael πŸ™‚

        You got lucky 726 times?? Nah… I would simply call that talent πŸ˜€
        And thanks a ton for the advice. I don’t have a cool camera, just my phone camera for now. I make the best use of that currently.
        I even wrote a post on that, you can check it out πŸ™‚

        Your welcome, I hope it will all work for you. I just got the Samsung Galaxy 3 for Christmas from my family. I gees they thought I needed it. I don’t think they liked my track phone I had! Anyway, I’m still learning it but it dose take some really great images! I have not posted any yet but I will. I did take a look at the post of your, you definitely know more than I do about these things. It was a great post by the way, I learned a thing or two. take care, Michael πŸ™‚
