Pattaya, the 5th of February 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]:Pattaya’s City Mayor Khun Itthiphol Khunplome and Khun Niti Kongrut, who is the Chonburi Director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, took a great interest in the large picture display stands. These showed the quality of our Thai photographers and many of the pictures were displayed by “Camera Art,” which is a well known Bangkok Photography magazine.

Gifts were both received and given out by the well known “Big Camera” chain of camera stores, who put a lot of work into sponsoring this photo workshop. After various awards and certificates were handed out to the VIP guests, the key-note speaker got down to the finer points of photography, such as the difference between compact cameras and the bigger SLR (interchangeable lens) cameras.

We were lucky enough to interview an overseas photographer with 46-years of professional experience, and when he started, there was no digital or video, no zoom lenses, no color film and no “photo-shop,” and professional film was so expensive that you had to get every photo perfect the first time, every time.

He gave the following advice about purchasing a camera:

1) Look for a camera that has enough picture quality for your needs; 6 – 8-million pixels is fine for snap shooters, but for more serious photography 12-million pixels or more is a lot better.

2) Stick to well known brands of lenses, (beware of copies), and get one lens that covers all your requirements; 28-135 mm. equivalent in small cameras is adequate, but the ideal lens in bigger cameras is an 18-200mm is ideal.

3) A camera with a big LCD viewing screen is much easier, but remember that they are hard to view in bright sunlight, so use your internal eye-level viewfinder.

4) If you are a serious photographer, make sure you have aperture and speed preference settings, full manual control, and an exposure over-ride system for both natural light and flash is heavily used by top-line professionals.

He made the following comments about the general use of cameras:

1) Firstly learn about shutter speed, lens aperture, focus and “ISO” film settings. How does lens aperture affect your range of focus? Why do you need to change your shutter speed? When should you change the “ISO” settings?

2) In this man’s overseas photographic school, the first two weeks were spent only on the above theories, and then the students were instructed on how to take better pictures.

3) Finally here is some advice that the local photographers will not want to hear; – When using bigger flash units they should not bounced, (it simply ruins a good photo); Likewise, bounce reflectors are only useful if they are very large; diffusers should be large and only used for close up photos and portraits.
