I decided to make a list of things I wish I knew when I started photography.

Feel free to share, like and comment.

  1. It's a expensive hobby or trade. Try to avoid getting into debt.

  2. Start off with a less expensive camera and spend more money on your lens.

  3. Purchase insurance for your gear.

  4. Expensive camera does not make a great photographer. Like Jordan's does not make great Basketball players.

  5. Purchase insurance for your gear.

  6. Learn your Camera inside and out. Read every page of your Camera manual.

  7. Learn how to move to Manual mode and get out of Auto Mode.

  8. Learn the ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture.

  9. Get it right in the camera and use Gimp, Paintshop and Photoshop less. Slow down and think about your composition, location and subject.

  10. Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Make mistakes and learn from them. The pros make mistakes but they don't show it.

  11. Purchase a External Hard drive to backup your photos. In 2007 I lost all of my photos when my Computer Hard Drive died.

  12. Find a mentor and don't expect then to teach you everything.

  13. Try to shoot something every week

  14. Don't expect everyone to like your work. I use to try to take photos for everyone.

  15. Look at people work that inspire you

  16. Avoid adding big ugly watermark and vignette to every photos.

  17. Always keep learning
