LAUNCH A GALLERY of more Flickr reader photos.

“The photo was taken a week ago on our family trip to Gold Coast,” says Tim. “It was a hot day at the theme park, Dreamworld, then we went into the Australian
Outback section where I wanted to take some shots of Kangaroos – until I
saw this little lizard resting under the tree.

I then quickly set up my camera to get the shot I wanted because I knew Ididn’t  have much time to play with my camera when I got near it. I snuck up near it and lying down low to the ground and SNAP SNAP SNAP. Three shots and off it went.

I’m pretty happy with how the photo turned out and hopefully it becomes something that other readers can enjoy too.

I started photography about two years ago. It was all about hobby at the first time. It’s just nice when you hang out with friends with same hobby and take some nice pictures together. Then I started to take it more seriously, probably in the past year, when I started investing on good lenses and good camera and trying to learn more by reading and looking at other people’s photos and learning about how to take picture correctly, with the interesting angles and right exposure.

For me now photography is not all about taking some nice photos, but how to take a photo that other people can enjoy and how the photo tells a story to other people. What they look at is more important to me and it has been my passion and my motivation in photography.”
