Looking For Tips In Photography? This Will Knock Your Socks Off!
Learning photography in a hit and miss "101 tips" sort of fashion will leave big gaps in your education. Here's how to get a more systematic education...
If you bounce from site to site getting some tips in photography here and others there, it is a sort of unorganized, helter skelter way of learning. You are likely to have a lot of gaps in your education. The problem with that is that unfortunately, they have a way of building on each other and you quickly end up with photos that aren't quite "up to snuff". Even worse, you have no idea why and what to do to "fix" them.
You are much better off looking for digital photography lessons that are taught in a more formalized fashion. Or, barring that, teaching yourself in a more systematic way.
That said, here is the #1 fastest and easiest way to master your camera...
The #1 best kept secret.
Virtually EVERY photographer who has reached any real level of proficiency has gotten there by keeping a record of their successes and failures. Then building on them to get better at "getting the shot".
As in any other endeavor, if you constantly work to eliminate your weaknesses and work to build on your strengths, you will eventually succeed. You must! It can't be avoided.
What we don't often realize is that it can happen pretty fast. Done right you will see improvement in your photos in a matter of hours. With the standard hit and miss "tips in photography" you may never get the results you wanted.
The way to do this is to keep a Photo Notebook.
Yes, I understand that it is boring and not as "sexy" as buying the latest gadget or learning the latest hot "tip." But, it works - fast! Here's what you do...
First: you write down what you pre-visualize the final photo will look like...
Second: you make note of all the lighting conditions, camera settings, lenses and so on.
Third: you shoot your photo.
Fourth: compare the result to what you pre-visualized.
If it is what you were after, make a note of it in your photo notebook and you will forever be able to duplicate that shot simply by checking your notes.
If the result wasn't on target, write down a few ideas on why that may have been the case and...
Fifth: re-shoot with the new ideas until you get what you wanted.
You WILL learn a ton about photography each time you do this exercise. Plus the knowledge will build on what you've learned before and each exercise gets easier.
By far this is one of the best tips in photography you will ever learn. If you use it.
