Dear Parents, dear Papa and Mama. I love you. You’re great.
I know that sometimes I was hard to handle, that I’m sometimes weird and have my own view of things. Nonetheless I’m sure, that good times definitely outweigh bad times. And I wanted to thank you for all you’ve done for me, for all the teaching, guiding and support.

First of all, I wanted to share with you how Wikipedia defines “Parents” because I really laughed at his: A parent (from Latin: parēns = parent) is a caretaker of the offspring in their own species.

Yes, that’s what parents are, so for all those out here who had no idea – that’s what it is. haha

This is just a short tipster on how to shoot cute romantic photos with few effort.

  • Try using color gels, I can only recommend the Diana Flash (also available in black or white) because it has a variety of (I think) 12 color gels, and also Fritz the Blitz has 3 few color gels to give your photos a completely new look! :-)
  • Maybe you have some accessories like heart shaped things or speech bubbles which make photos even more interesting.
  • Try to find a good position and a good moment for your snap. (But don’t forget #6: “Don’t think.”) Try not to think too much, when you put too much time in it, the moment may have gone.

I wish you all the best, good results and of course: fun!
LOMO ON :-)
