Nov Povleakhena, a 21-year-old media student, loves photography and also shares her tips on taking photos as a hobby.
“As a media student I learnt basic skills in photojournalism. I have learnt a lot, but for me the most important things in photography are light, composition and the meaning of the photograph.
“I always investigate and research photography projects and being patient and waiting for the right light or moment to take a photo is important too. I love both portraits and landscapes.
She adds that a good camera is always a good investment: “I used to use a small, compact digital camera which I found limited my photos. When I swapped it for a Canon 600D it helped a lot and also made me look more professional."
