Since I found photography two and a half years ago I have learned different things which I would like to share with you today. These lessons have made me richer and I hope that you will find them refreshing and inspiring on your journey with the camera, too.

1. Never do photography to become a rock-star.
 
2. Enjoy what you are shooting.
 
3. Prepare well for your shooting, realizing that your battery isn’t charge when you’re setting up for that sunrise shoot is too late!
 
4. Always take one warm garment more than you actually need with you
 
5. Pay attention to your thoughts and emotions while you are shooting
 
6. Set goals you can achieve
 
7. Write tips about photography, because writing is also learning
 
8. Never go shooting without a tripod
 
9. Be pleased with the little prosperities
 
10. Build relationships with potential photo buddies
 
11. Watch the place you want to shoot first with your heart then with the camera
 
12. Always stay calm
 
13. Know that you tend to overestimate yourself
 
14. Perspective is the killer
 
15. Dedicate yourself to photography, but never browbeat yourself too much
 
16. Take part in a photography community
 
17. Keep your camera clean
 
18. Never compare yourself to others in a better or worse context
 
19. Find your own style of photography
 
20. Try to compose more and to hit the shutter less
 
21. Seek out and learn to accept critique on your images
 
22. Do something different to recover creativity
 
23. Get inspiration from the work of other photographers
 
24. Criticize honestly but respectfully
 
25. Get feedback from your lady
 
26. Don’t copy other photographer’s style
 
27. Be bold
 
28. Take care of the golden ratio
 
29. 10mm rocks!
 
30. Take selfportraits
 
31. Read books about photography
 
32. To give a landscapephotograph the extra boost, integrate a person (maybe yourself)
 
33. Every shooting situation is different than you expect
 
34. Pay attention to s-curves and lines
 
35. Always shoot in RAW
 
36. Keep your sensor clean, so you can save some work cleaning your image in post production
 
37. Discover the things you think are beautiful
 
38. It takes time to become a good photographer
 
39. The best equipment is that what you have now
 
40. You can’t take photographs of everything
 
41. Break the rules of photography knowingly, but not your camera

42. Pay attention to the different way that light falls on different parts of your scene
 
43. The eye moves to the point of contrast
 
44. Clouds increase the atmosphere of a landscape
 
45. Start a photoblog
 
46. Accept praise and say “thank you”
 
47. ‘Nice Shot’ is not a very useful comment to write
 
48. ‘Amazing!’ isn’t useful either. Try to describe specifically what you like or don’t like about an image.
 
49. You are not your camera
 
50. Ask a question at the end of your comment on a photo to get a ping-pong conversation with the photographer
 
51. Do a review of your archives on a regular basis, the longer you photograph - the more diamonds are hidden there
 
52. Always clarify what the eyecatcher (focal point) will be in your image
 
53. No image is better than a bad one
 
54. Everyone has to start little
 
55. Your opinion about photography is important!
 
56. Leave a funny but thoughtful comment
 
57. Speak about your experiences with your photo buddies
 
58. Limit your photograph to the substance
 
59. Participate in Photocontests
 
60. Post processing = Optimizing your image to the best result
 
61. Shoot exposure latitudes as often as possible
 
62. Use photomatix as seldom as possible, HDR’s always have a synthetic flavor
 
63. Always remember what brought you to photography
 
64. Never shoot a person who doensn’t want to be photographed
 
65. Always turn arround, sometimes the better image is behind you
 
66. It’s who’s behind the camera, not the camera
 
67. Mistakes are allowed! The more mistakes you make, the more you learn!
 
68. If you have an idea and immediately you think : No, this is not going to work - Do it anyway. When in doubt - always shoot.
 
69. Understand and look to your histogramm while shooting. It delivers very important information about your image
 
70. Know your camera, because searching the menu button in the night is time you don’t want to waste
 
71. Shoot as often as possible
 
72. Believe in yourself
 
73. Don’t be afraid of getting dirty
 
74. Pay attention to qualitiy in your image
 
75. Your photographs are a personal map of your psyche
 
76. Re-check your ISO-Settings. It’s aweful to detect the wrong settings on your screen.
 
77. Be thankful for long and thoughtful comments on your images
 
78. Never trust your LCD. Normally it is brighter and sharper as the original image.
 
79. Provide for enough disc space, because it’s cheap and you will need it.
 
80. Learn to enjoy beautful moments when you don’t have a camera with you.
 
81. Always arrive at least half an hour earlier before sunrise / sundown, composing in a hurry is a bad thing.
 
82. Try to amplify your mental and physical limits. Takes some extra shots when you think “it’s enough”
 
83. Pay attention to structures in the sky and wait until they fit into structures in the foreground
 
84. Visit the same place as often as possible. Light never shows the same mountain.
 
85. Print your images in big size. You will love it.
 
86. Calibrate your monitor. Working with a monitor that is not accurate is like being together with someone you can’t trust. It always ends badly.
 
87. Don’t think about what others may say about your image. If you like it, it’s worth publishing.
 
88. Never address reproaches to yourself. Learn from your mistakes and look forward, not backward.
89. Fight your laziness ! Creativitiy comes after discipline.
 
90. Ask yourself : What do you want to express in your images ?
 
91. Always try to think outside the box, collect new ideas about photographs you could do and ask yourself : Why not?
 
92. Search for a mentor.
 
93. Photography is never a waste of time.
 
94. Every community has it’s downsides. Don’t leave it out of an emotional response.
 
95. There will always be people who will not like what you are doing.
 
96. Henri Cartier-Bresson was right when he said that “Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”
 
97. A better camera doesn’t guarantee better images.
 
98. Always have printing in mind when you postprocess your images.
 
99. Photography is fair : You gain publicity with the quality of your images. Unless the images are stolen, there is no way of cheating yourself higher.
 
100. Write a 100 things list"
