When not to take photos

ybiia writes "The best way to get good pictures is to take shitloads of pictures".

I used to follow that advice too.

Then I realised all I had was lots and lots of crap photos, instead of just a normal amount of crap photos.

My photography didn’t begin to seriously improve until I learned when not to take photos.

If the light is poor or the view is compromised in some way I now tend to leave my camera in the bag.

This can sometimes mean that I go to a place and have no photographic record of it at all, but I’m used to that feeling now.

  1. Yes, you’re right.
    My advice is a bit crap really.

    You first need to learn what is a good photo and what is a bad photo and as you say the best way to do that is to take lots of photos.
