Random Cambodian photos

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Great pictures.

I wonder what made the woman decide to have all of her hair cut off
She's old so she could be becoming a Daun Chi, the shaved-head elderly ladies in white who work around pagodas or shrines. Women usually only take this role after the death of their husband or divorce, or sometimes through extreme poverty. I don't believe it's poverty in this case as the woman appears well-dressed.

Jamie;
with a phone camera you can take pictures
with a SLR/ DSLR you can make photographs
hope you understand the difference.

So a photograph is a digital image captured through a lens. What do phones do?

What do phones do? Well their biggest advantage is they can fit in your pocket, amongst other things, but IMO they will never compete against a proper camera,

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

its all about how the photographer can control what the photograph result is using a slr/dslr with changing, amongst others,
iso, f stop, speed, lens etc etc
