Thought for the day: How best to improve your photography?
Roger Cicala of LnesRentals talks about what part of your equipment to improve first. He has a mathematical discussion in his blog on this. But I’d suggest for most people, most of the time, the single piece of hardware that can most improve the quality of their pictures is a good quality tripod, if they use it correctly (Image stabilization off, remote release, careful scene composition, etc.).
But I’d also suggest what would be of the most value to most photographers (myself included) is to take workshops where there are evaluations of photos made during the workshop. Getting feedback is hard. And frequently in competitions the subjects that different people turn in are different than yours. In a workshop you are all photographing in the same (sand dune/garden/city street/etc.) so it is easier to learn from critiques from all the students in the workshop. This isn’t the only reason to take workshops.
