100 Things I Have Learned About Photography

With so much great complimentary photography advice circulating the web, I almost find it morally wrong not sharing it with people that share the same genuine interest in the craft as much as I do. Street photographer Eric Kim shares 100 appreciable things he’s learned from the business and I’ve cherry-picked 15 of my favorite ones.

  1. Never stop taking photos.
  2. Photos make great presents.
  3. Never hoard your photographic insight- share it with the world.
  4. Travel and photography are the perfect pair.
  5. The more gear you carry around with you the less you will enjoy photography.
  6. Make photos, not excuses.
  7. Photography isn’t a hobby- it’s a lifestyle.
  8. You can’t “photoshop” bad images into good ones.
  9. Carry your camera with you everywhere. Everywhere.
  10. Only show your best photos.
  11. Spend less time looking at other people’s work and more time shooting your own.
  12. Capture the beauty in the mundane and you have a winning photograph.
  13. Go outside and shoot photos rather than spending hours a day on photography forums.
  14. Always shoot in RAW. Always.
  15. Just because someone has an expensive camera doesn’t mean that they’re a good photographer.
