Practise, practise, practise your photography
If you take one thing from my “Creative Christmas” series, please let it be that you have to get out there and practise. It’s great reading or watching all the tutorials in the world but unless you’re putting it into practice your photography will never improve.
Much the same as any new skill you are trying to learn, the more you practise the better you will get. There’s a common saying that it takes 10,000 hours to become a master of any given skill so don’t worry if you’ve got all the nice gear and your photography doesn’t quite match up to the price tag yet. Spend more time on practising with what you have than drooling over new kit.
Make sure you practise in as many different styles while you have the chance, as it may be that you start off wanting to photograph dogs in cute hats and soon realise you hate dogs.
Pointing your camera at as many different subjects as possible will help you across the whole spectrum too as it will make you more confident with the camera you are using, as well as giving you practise in different lighting setups and environments.
That’s it for today, come back tomorrow for the final video in the series and if you want to keep up to date with any future videos we release and any of the tutorials that we put up on the blog please do sign up to our mailing list which can be found on the blog here and we’ll send you some weekly tips to keep you inspired.
