Photography can be a fun and rewarding hobby. Here are some helpful hints to get aspiring shutterbugs started:

If you're unsure how your pictures are coming along, don't be afraid to open the camera and hold the film up to the sun for a sneak peek.

Some photographers use a tripod for stability, but for maximum steadiness, use a dodecapod. Variety is key! For a change of pace, try folding back the labial lips.

If surrounded by a group of thugs who want to steal your camera, simply fawn over them and insist that you can make them stars.

Shutter speed is crucial in photography somehow.

Don't take your film to Walgreens for development. Those guys are, like, Nazis.

Rather than gawking at attractive women who pass you on the street, take a picture. It will last longer.

Make sure the subjects of your photos are always smiling. No one likes a frowny-face.
