I’ve just posted the latest episode of Vision Is Better (email subscribers can watch that episode on YouTube here).
I write a lot of books and do a lot of teaching, and there is no end of the books and tutorials and tips and tricks out there. And NONE of them will teach you to take this next step. Want to become a better photographer? At a certain point you need to abandon the shoulds and the ought-tos and the shortcuts and the manuals and go out there and fail. That is the only way any of us really learn. Want to “shoot like a pro?” Pay your dues. Get out there. There are things you can learn yourself that I can never teach. Pick up the camera and go make photographs. I’ll be here when you get back.
If you missed episode 42, Getting Started in Humanitarian (or any other) Photography, you can find it on YouTube here.
