I agree with you on the tea. I’ve never even had milk tea and I especially don’t like it with sugar.
You sound so wonderfully interesting. :)
Anyways, about taking good photos.
I am not an expert by any means but when it comes to doing anything, just mimic what you see on television or in magazines.
Your pictures are fine and I like the settings that you place yourself in; it’s just that they may be overpowering the shot.
When taking a picture you want to be the subject of the shot, so try not to get anything that is too distracting, such as colorful wild life or larger objects.
Focus on yourself and be sure that you take up at least 5/8 of the photo unless it is your intention to seem small. If you are indoors, try to use a solid background and plenty of natural lighting is always good too. Those are just a few tips that I can give.
