In my 3rd class, I took up the course on "Take Impactful Photos with Your Smartphone". I enjoyed the course as it makes me appreciate the techniques of taking impactful photos, to convey the message to the audience in a picture without words. " A picture tells a thousand words" is the key take home message! Will practice what I learned! Kudos to Christopher Tan for his sharing!
