Things to Think About
- When and where did you take the photograph?
- What were you doing when you took the photograph?
- Who or what is the subject of the photograph?
- Why do you like this photograph?
- Why does this photograph have personal meaning for you?
There are two criteria: fluency and audience connection.
Fluency is being able to speak naturally and smoothly, and this is usually quite difficult when you are speaking to an audience. The key to improving this is to practice, practice, practice.
Audience connection means how well you keep your audience engaged. If they are bored or not paying attention, you have not succeeded in engaging them. For this kind of presentation, you will need to speak from your heart if you want to catch their attention. You will also need to make good eye contact. Again, reduce your anxiety and increase your connection by practicing this as much as you can.

Chiang Mai Flower
I took this photo in Ampoe Mueang, Chiang Mai, on the day before I
left. I was living in Chiang Mai for almost one year, which was probably
the best year of my life. I didn’t have a job, I could just enjoy free time,
relaxing, practising photography, sitting in coffee shops, writing, and
riding my motorbike around the North of Thailand. On the day before
I left, I went for a walk around town to take photos. I felt sad to leave
Chiang Mai, and wanted to remember how beautiful it was, so I took
this photo. I used my Canon 500D DSLR and only added a slight crop
and vignette. I like it because it is simple, with only two main colours:
white and dark green.
Travel & Tourism
- South island of New Zealand
- End of my year’s travel
- Finished my job (work and travel)
- Hiking the Abel Tasman trail (rain!)
- Hitch-hiked a(nother) lift to continue my journey
- I like this photo because it shows the kindness of kiwis
- Also shows I had grown up a lot and had learned who to trust and who not to
