5. Assuming Post-Processing Will Fix All Your Errors
If you are not taking time to compose your image and think that you can correct everything during post-processing, you are wrong.
Learn to make your shots as good as possible in your viewfinder. Anytime you step out to take a photograph, forget that post-processing exists and do everything in your power to get a perfect shot.
You need to check your composition, exposition, light, and any other thing that will help your picture to turn out perfectly.
6. Not Making Out Time to Learn About Lighting
This is the first thing you must learn as a photographer. Over the years, I’ve come across so many photographers that jumped into photography without first learning about lighting. Without a doubt, lighting is the backbone of your creative process. It is the core of photography.
Learning about lighting will help you a lot. If you master how to apply proper lighting in different situations, you will be able to take awe-inspiring and magical pictures each time you click on the shutter button.
7. Making Use of Just the Auto/Program Mode
I’ve seen this thousands of time before, most photographers are too lazy that they let their camera do all the work every time. There is no way you can be able to grow your photography skill if you don’t earn to tweak your settings to your needs.
Photography is an art that you can master with tons of practice. You will need to learn how to use your camera modes even if you are already good in composition, lighting, and post-production.
Photography is fun. Whether you are into it for fun or business, you need to be open to learning. The only way you can improve your skills is to learn every day. Don’t be afraid to try new things, over time, you will get more experience and be able to shoot outstanding images every time you step out with your camera.
