Let’s face it…
The road to mastering photography is a long one. In fact, it’s a journey that never ends! There is always something new to learn and existing skills that can be improved.
If you ask me, the most difficult part of learning photography isn’t getting started, but transitioning from being a beginner to a more advanced photographer.
The tips I’ve outlined below address this very period in your development and will help you get over the hump to become more skilled.
Get Out of Full Auto
I’ve said before that using full auto mode when you’re a beginner can actually be a good thing. After all, without having to worry about exposure settings, you can concentrate more fully on things like composition and framing.
But now that you’re ready to become more of an enthusiast photographer, it’s time to leave full auto behind.
I think everyone should learn manual mode, but you don’t have to jump right to the big, scary M on your camera’s dial just yet.
