Nowadays, we have more photographers since smartphones came out and other devices. However, it takes more to be a good photographer.

There are a lot of factors before becoming a successful photographer. We also need to get the right equipment, training, and education.

It is all about learning how successful photographers think before pressing the shutter.

1. Be fearless

Be fearless!

Sometimes, we are new to photography and be afraid of using our digital cameras. For instance, when I bought my new digital camera, I was so intimidated by the camera, although I had been taking photographs for many years and it was different from the old one I thought.

After one week of waiting and reading the instruction manual, I overcame my fear.

2. Keep an open mind

As photographers, we need to develop an open mind by looking around us and taking advice and learning from professional photographers and others in our environment.

3. Develop confidence

The more you shoot, the better you become and more confident in your abilities. Keep shooting!

4. be positive and have the right attitude

The more positive you are, your shots will be better. Otherwise, it can be a disaster, especially if you are angry about a situation. Also, shooting people with your smile makes them more relaxed and happy. This is the right attitude to have.

5. Be different and original

Be different and original!

Be original and find your own style, don’t be afraid to do things differently; enjoy constructive feedback to get better. Take advantage of your uniqueness.

6. Prepare and focus on excellence

Whether you shoot birds, people at a wedding, or any other event, you need to prepare yourself. First of all, have the right equipment and lenses for the circumstances so that you don’t have any surprises. I look for excellence in everything I do but not perfection.

7. Set goal for the day

What do you want to photograph? Birds, streets, weddings, portraits etc. Choose a new challenge to improve your skills as a photographer.

8. Know and understand your subject

Know your subject!

Don’t rush to capture unnecessary photos, and take the time to know your subject and their surroundings.

Enjoy your photography day!

Please, I would love to hear from you!
