The Camera is a Tool Like Any Other. It Has to Be Learned So That You Can Use It Instinctively.
Camera manufacturers go to great lengths to produce manuals and guides for the use of their cameras. Take advantage of this and learn how to use the one you have. Don’t ever fall into the trap of chasing that other great camera that will take brilliant photos. Cameras don’t shoot photos, photographers shoot photos and a photographer is someone who know how to use their available tools without thinking.
Find a Rule of Photography. It Doesn’t Matter Which. Prove It Right. Now Break It Until You Can Prove It Wrong.
Photography is an art. Like any art it has a technical aspect to it and because of that certain rules have evolved. Never treat the rules as being set in stone. Learn to follow the rule and achieve the expected result but don’t stop there. Look at lots of images that follow the rule then find images that break the rule, yet still work. Try to figure out why. Then go out and break some rules! Lather, rinse and repeat.
