Paul Hickson's "Photography top tips 1-10"

Photography top tip number 1 – Always remember to remove the lens cap

Photography top tip number 2 – Any image looks good in black and white… except ones with Zebras in them, yeah for some reason they seem to disappear… crazy weird!

Photography top tip number 3 – Taking pictures of yourself in the mirror and trying to look sexy is super lame! I know, I’ve done it many a times

Photography top tip number 4 – Whenever you’re at a party, whatever you do, don’t let that crazy girl who likes to go around parties taking loads of pictures of herself with other random party guests, get hold of your camera! that’s what we call a “Photo hoe”

Photography top tip number 5 – If you should find yourself in a crowd of people who are carrying at least 8 cameras each standing outside of Naomi Campbell’s house, then you’ve inadvertently become a paparazzo and is imperative you slowly make your way out of the crowd before you find yourself face to face with an angry celebrity who has an immense hatred for the paparazzi

Photography top tip number 6 – Just like any other form of graffiti, light graffiti is a crime! plus you look like a crazy person when you’re doing it, waving that LED light around like you’re at some Lady Gaga concert. It’s not cool when you’re the only one doing it!!

Photography top tip number 7 – When taking a photo, always be aware of elements in the background that may spoil your image such as a sign or a cow taking a dump… they have no shame

Photography top tip number 8 – Most cameras today eliminate the risk of red eye but if it doesn’t, it probably means that person is the devil!

Photography top tip number 9 – When doing macro photography, try not to be alarmed by insects appearing larger than they actually are… unless they actually are super sized due to some radioactive mutation, then you should probably be alarmed!

Photography top tip number 10 – Photoshop is a wonderful tool for enhancing your photographic work… plus you can superimpose your head onto the body of a muscular person and then use it as your profile picture on… not that I do that, how sad would that be?… OK I do it all the time, and do you know what? it works! I have like 50 different girls wanting to go on dates… although I think they might be a little disappointed by the lack of muscles when they meet me…

Artist's Description

For the past few months, I’ve been posting tips on how to improve your photography on my ‘Paul Hickson Photography’ facebook page’ (it took many an hour to come up with that name) so far the tips have well, erm hindered rather than helped… but I’m still holding out for the hope that someone will take them to heart and… well somehow try to decipher their meaning.

Oh by the way, if you’re interested, you can join my super awesome photography facebook page at the address below, please do, it’s somewhat quiet there at the moment, like one of those lame parties where no one shows up… yeah, been to many of those parties… probably because they’re mostly my parties, I don’t know why? My parties are awesome! I mean who doesn’t like pin the tale on the donkey? lame people that’s who!
