Selalu Ada Detail
i worked for 10 years give or take as a mall photographer and i’m here to tell you that shooting portraits is not as easy as sitting someone down and saying “smile!”. there’s a lot that goes into it – for instance – S-curves and C-curves, feminine vs masculine hand placement, minimizing shots taken, making the subject feel at ease, getting a natural vs staged smile (and learning when a staged smile is better than natural), learning how to light the eyes without overexposing the cheeks, and the list goes on and on and on.

A good lesson: dalam bidang pekerjaan apapun, selalu ada detail-detail di dalamnya jika kita menggali lebih lanjut. Being nerds is to be in love with this kind of details.
