Photographer Traci calls this happy picture
Photographer Traci calls this happy picture "Purely Innocent."

Photographer and mother, Traci D. Angelo, writes "This picture was shot with an Olympus digital camera. I am just getting to know my camera and what it is capable of doing."

Traci's young son appears to have the magic touch with the family cat, who is probably wondering how he is capable of making him feel so good by petting just the right spot.


The picture on the right is of Traci's daughter, who seems to be absorbed in the simple beauty of a flower.

Shooting in black-and-white can often enhance the mood of a portrait. The relatively-shallow depth of field has blurred the background. An out-of-focus background causes the viewer's eye to concentrate on the subject, increasing the effectiveness of a portrait.

Traci's daughter caught in a pensive moment, perhaps contemplating what the future will bring.

14-year-old Aaron Adams photographed this endearing trio of kittens.

Photographer Aaron Adams writes "I am a 14-year-old male and these are these 3 cats that were living under my house, and they were so scared to even let us touch them, let alone a picture. Hope you enjoy it."

"The camera I have is a Canon Powershot A590 IS," says Aaron, who told us he was lying on the ground, level with the kittens, when he took the picture, which was the proper thing to do. Getting down to the level of your subjects, especially children and animals, will usually produce a good picture.

What happened to the kittens, you might wonder. Aaron tells us. "I kept the white one in the middle. Her name is Sophie. The other two are at the Humane Society."


Photographer Sudarshan Sadaphule submitted this black-and-white picture, which he entitled "Historical Fort in Maharashtra".

The absence of color in this instance tends to give the look of a picture taken in the past, providing a sense of history that seems to be suited to this scene.

Henry Leong calls this scene
Henry Leong calls this scene "The Stunning Singapore River."

Singapore photographer Henry Leong says he has been taking pictures for more than 30 years, on and off, since he was a few years old. His favourite pictures are of landscapes and travel photographs. He used a Sony T200 compact camera for this picture on the left, which he entitled "The Stunning Singapore River."

Henry says, "Of the numerous pictures I took that day in this particular area, I picked this picture because the place was lively - the young boy was trying to take a picture of the beautiful sunset, and some ladies who were around there were drawn to and looking opposite the reverse bumpee jump." Henry says he didn't use any filters, but "just increased the warmth of the pictures."

Henry worked a few years as a printer, which he says helps in his photography. "Photography is important," says Henry, "because it is universally understood by every person. My tip is to take as many photos of the subjects that you want to take. And take lots of pictures."


Photographer and mother, Amber Beardsley, says she has been taking pictures for as long as she can remember. "I started with my mother's old Olympus SLR taking scenery pictures. When I had my first child in 2002, however, my photography naturally shifted to portraits."

In January 2008, Amber purchased her first digital SLR. "I chose the Canon Rebel XTi because of the great reviews," she says. "It has not disappointed."

"This is a picture of my daughter," she writes. "It worked well because I have a hard time getting her to pose for a picture. In return I got a more natural looking picture."
