    Default "10 Ways to Improve Your Photography in 30 days", and some of my thoughs

    Received a daily digest about Photography Tips and Techniques, the title of one article caught my attention,

    10 Ways to Improve Your Photography in 30 days


    here is the first tips


    1. Regardless of what type of camera you are using you will need to know how it works and how to use it in order to get the best results. It doesn’t matter if you’re using a DSLR, a point and shoot, or a smartphone camera, having a better understanding of how it works and what you can do will open up new possibilities and allow you to use it more effectively.


    The best place to start is, of course, the camera’s manual.
    the rest of the tips, noting about "what Camera should I have", "what Lens should I have", "what Gears should I have", just simple fully utilise whatever already in your hands.

    just look at the new threads post here everyday, most of them are either asking basic questions that can be found in camera manual easily, or just a few keystroke in Google Search, and also endless gear talks.
    how much time you guys spend using your camera to create photographs?
    and please, taking photos of objects or people to test the sharpness/color/resolution power is NOT photography.

    if their photography is so shallow, not putting any efforts into it, no wonder their hobby don't last long,
    I hope to see more photographers just go out and shoot, explore and learn,
    come back to post more photos here to share and encourage each.

    One should be able to operate the camera in total darkness.

    Train your photographic eye, know your gears and do the photographic composition in your mind before pickup the camera, and then shoot.

    I always tell my friends that, if they are interested in moving away from Auto or Creative modes, to understand better the shutter-aperture-iso relationship. Even this step can take a while to understand and I found that it can be easier to break it down into an everyday concept to better understand.

    Since both aspects reside in different sides of the brain it is really a challenge... few will master.
