Tip #13: Turn Around
This goes along with the previous tip. As you are moving around a location, don’t forget to turn around to see what is behind you. There could be something pretty amazing happening back there, too. You’ll never know if you don’t give it a try.
Tip #14: Stay Out Late
Just because the sun has set and the light is fading doesn’t mean you have to pack up and head home. Wait for the stars to get visible. If you have some time, stick around until astronomical twilight ends and true darkness begins. Depending on where you are, the Milky Way may be visible. If it’s not, you could always try shooting a sequence of images to create star trails. Not to mention, it’s just cool to be out enjoying the night landscape.
Tip #15: Never Stop Learning
Finally, the last tip! And it’s a very important one. Regardless of where you are in your photography, there is always more to learn. I never get tired of listening to photography podcasts on my long commute to work. The Improve Photography network now has five different podcasts available, so there is something for everyone. If you haven’t tried Improve Photography Plus, head over and give the free demo a try. There are tons of video tutorials covering all types of photography. If that’s not enough, there are plenty of free Youtube video tutorials from many well-known photographers that are fun to watch and have lots of useful information. The point is to keep learning new things. Challenge yourself with new techniques. It’s a great way to keep photography fresh and fun.
