How to be a better photographer and get noticed. So, I get asked alot, 'How do I be a better photographer?'How to be a better photographer and get noticed. by gutterface
Well, I'm not the best. I'm not a professional, or even anywhere near it, but there are a few things I live by, and are pretty good tips on how to get better, and be better known in the 'dA world'.
Take your camera EVERYWHERE. Take it to the store, to the family camping trip, out to eat. Take it down to check the mail. You NEVER know where something might pop up that is a PERFECT photo opportunity. I almost never leave mine home and because of this, I have taken some pretty cool shots.
Play with your settings like CRAZY and NEVER shoot on auto If you are shooting with a point 'n shoot, i dont have much advice but if you use a DSLR, NEVER EVER EVER shoot on auto. it defeats the entire point of buying one. learn how to use manual and use it all the time. I occasionally use 'AV' or 'TV' on my canon, but mostly manual. It lets you make your photo exactly how you want it to look. take
