Photo 101: Day One – Home

What does home look like or mean to you? Share an image in a new post.

From Wikipedia:-
A home is a dwelling-place used as a permanent or semi-permanent residence for an individual, family, household or several families in a tribe. It is often a house, apartment, or other building, or alternatively a mobile home, houseboat, yurt or any other portable shelter. Homes typically provide areas and facilities for sleeping, preparing food, eating and hygiene. Larger groups may live in a nursing home, children’s home, convent or any similar institution. A homestead also includes agricultural land and facilities for domesticated animals. Where more secure dwellings are not available, people may live in the informal and sometimes illegal shacks found in slums and shanty towns. More generally, “home” may be considered to be a geographic area, such as a town, village, suburb, city, or country.

Transitory accommodation in a treatment facility for a few weeks is not normally considered permanent enough to replace a more stable location as ‘home’. In 2005, 100 million people worldwide were estimated to be homeless.

My vision of my home.

It is the interior of the house or residence that is more important than the exterior that provides only the shelter and protection from the weather. The comfort of home is found inside the house where you can enjoy the comforts of home with your pets, television, computer, and have your meals in comfort. You can take your rest and sleep in your own comfortable bed with the air-conditioner especially in hot tropical climate. Home Sweet Home.

Day One: Home & Getting Oriented
Home is elusive. When we think about this word, we might picture different physical locations. And while home is often found on a map, it can also be less tangible: a loved one, a state of mind.

We’ve taken a very literal route with this theme, with an image of a tiny home in progress:

For more: Before we offer shooting tips, let’s make sure you’re comfortable with your camera. You’re free to use any type of equipment and lens for this course: the camera on your phone, a point-and-shoot, a dSLR, a film camera, or something else.

If you’re just getting to know this camera, poke around. Press buttons. Find features like:
a switch to turn your auto-flash on/off
a button to zoom in and out
a switch to turn a grid on your screen on/off
other basic built-in editing tools
You won’t use these buttons and tools right away, but it’s good to know where they are.

Posting on the go? If you’re taking pictures from your iOS or Android device, download the WordPress app (for iOS | for Android). In addition to using our course tag, photo101, use wponthego for posts published from your app.

We look forward to seeing what “Home” means to you!

Cheers,

Commentary by Teoh Hock Eng,

Today’s monthly lunch at Berjaya Georgetown City Hotel was attended by 15 Penang Lang and an honoured guest. The change in venue and the varied buffet spread got the thumbs up from all the members present. And this time, we manage to get our “official” photographer, Soo Peng in the group photo. The following attended, Richard Chung Chok Yin, Flecher Ong, Lam Poh Weng, Lim Beng Tat, Lim Soo Peng, Lim Teong Seng, Lum Wai Kuan, Kenneth Oh Weng Mun, Ong Ban Seang, Raymond Ong, Boon Beng, Sim Hoclk Lye, Tan Kok Kheng, Tan Kuan Seng, Teoh Ban Bee, Chew Sze Meng our guest from France and Teoh Hock Eng – the organizer. Khoo Hong San had to excuse himself in the morning to attend to a pressing matter and Eric Ng Vei Fung had to a workshop on pharmacy in a city hotel. Enclosed the photos taken by Soo Peng during our lunch. Thanks Soo Peng for the photos, memories. To everyone present this afternoon, thank you for your presence.
