My Quick Tips on a Cool T-shirt


My workshop and seminar participants are familiar with my one-liners, which some of my photographer friends call "Sammonisms."

These helpful photo phrases sum up some of the basic rules of photography than can help you make better pictures.

For those who want to keep my expressions handy, my photographer friend and workshop participant Spike (Mike) Ince at the Arizona T-Shirt Factory designed a cool "Rick's Tips" t-shirt.

Available in L and XL, the t-shirt are $20 each (includes shipping). Payment is via paypal to ricksammon@mac.com.

US shipping only.

Questions? Please email me.

My expressions:

The name of the game is to fill the frame.
Dead center is deadly.
When you think you are close, get closer.
The camera looks both ways.
Expose for the highlights.
Use your camera like a spaceship.
Light illuminates, shadows define.
Backlight = shoot tight.
Make pictures, just don't take pictures.
See eye to eye - shoot eye to eye.
Take the darn flash off the camera.

Explore the light,
Rick

This concept is really cool and the t-shirt looks great with the wordings in white on the black body. The basic rules of photography are perfectly put together into rhyme and it is one of the great t-shirt design ideas to print on a t-shirt. The best thing about it is that it can be worn by anyone.
