A summary of learning points from Part 1:
- Have projects/plans in mind when photographing. These can be short, medium or long term, but it helps to keep your focus and interest.
- There is no harm in repeatedly photo’ing the same area or subject to learn about it, as long as you actually do learn something and not just endlessly repeat the same thoughts e.g. make a series over time.
- Be aware of lines, both perspective and flat.
- Think about framing
- Learn by looking at other people’s images and then reading about them, reviewers may feel the same as you or have a very different viewpoint. Both will be valid.
