To become a grate photographer

Do you want to become a grate photographer?
The best way…. Learn everything you can and never stop asking questions.

Look up photographers, and examine your favourite photos. Try and analyze what lens they used, what lighting they used (natural vs. artificial, time of day/flash, if/where they placed the lights, etc.), where/how/if they stood. All of that will make you a better photographer.

The best photographers don't just look, they see, and they feel.

Best of luck.

Eric is right, might as well CLSB this thread into something fun.

I had a craigslist out burst there.

"Car for sale. 1996 not running 3000$" listing

Email I get

"Hi I saw your listing, what year is the car, is it running and how much do you want for it?"


Just an example of the tons of crap I've been dealing with right now.


It was a don't feed the troll thing. I'm mobile can peoples check and see if the links under trolls name don't get clicked.

Don't get me started on the Craigs List A-holes. I keep having my guitar ads flagged because I refuse to use their microscopic photo space, and I have a link to my gallery with moar photos of the guitar for sale. Both are disallowed. funny thing, I've been posting shit like this for months, and someone gets their panties in a bunch being the CraigsList Nazi and flagging shit left and right.
