Once in a while, I follow some of my photog friend out for  a day of casual shoot. This is the time where I can really relax and shoot for fun without the worry of screwing up the shots. But at the same time, this is the time where I learn new technique and experiment new style and approach. Use the lens that you less favourite and make the best out of it. I always tell myself expensive camera and lens will not give you good images but experience does. Emotions and the feeling that portrait by the person is the most important aspect that I have trying to capture all this while. It is very easy to say than done. So go out and start taking as much picture as you can. This is the best way the learn and gain your experience.
