5 Mistakes that new photographers make….

Just recently my social media feed has seen an increase in ludicrous clickbait like the title of this post. Photographers telling other photographers how to take ‘better’ photographs. I have no idea what a ‘better’ photograph is and honestly I don’t care. I only make photographers for myself and having been at this strange pursuit for nearly half a century I would suggest that is all any photographer can hope to do.

So the five mistakes all new photographers make are:

  • Listening to Opinions on Social Media about what is and is not a good photograph
  • Listening to Opinions on Social Media about what is and is not a good photograph
  • Listening to Opinions on Social Media about what is and is not a good photograph
  • Listening to Opinions on Social Media about what is and is not a good photograph
  • Listening to Opinions on Social Media about what is and is not a good photograph

I know what I enjoy and what I try to make. They only way to do that is to make photographs and then make some more and then…well you get the idea.

Does this count as “…Listening to Opinions on Social Media about what is and is not a good photograph…’? Yes. I rest my case.
