Health literacy and asthma in Malaysia

How to take your photos

Guidelines on how to take your photos for Stage 2 of this project.

Thank you for taking part in this study.

Below are a few things you may want to think about before you start going out with your cameras, snapping the aspects of your life to be shared with us. There are no wrong answers. These guides are to help you to be more confident when using your camera and to tell people what you are doing it for.

We really want to understand your experience, your motivations, and challenges living with asthma. You are the expert in all of these things! Feel free to share with us whatever you choose through the images and please, you should not feel obliged to share things you would rather keep private.

While you take the photos, think about these questions:

  1. What it is like to live with asthma?
  2. What helps you or what makes it more difficult to live with asthma?
  3. How do you learn about asthma and where do you get information about it?

I hope you will enjoy this experience and I will see you in our next meeting, to talk about these exciting photos!
