1. It’s an 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. An expensive camera does not make a great photographer. Like Jordan’s don’t make a great Basketball player.
  5. Learn your Camera inside and out. Read every page of your Camera manual.
  6. Learn how to move to Manual mode and get out of auto mode.
  7. Learn ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture.
  8. Get it right in the camera and use Gimp, Corel Paintshop and Adobe Photoshop less. Slow down and think about your composition, location, and subject.
  9. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Make mistakes and learn from them. The pros make mistakes, but they don’t show it.
  10. Purchase an External Hard drive to backup your photos. In 2007 I lost all of my photos when my Computer Hard Drive died
  11. Find a mentor and don’t expect then to teach you everything.
  12. Try to shoot something every week.
  13. Don’t expect everyone to like your work. I use to try to take photos of everyone.
  14. Don’t compare your work to other people work.
  15. Look at people work that inspires you.
  16. Avoid adding big ugly watermark and vignette to every photo.
  17. Always keep learning.
