Looking back over the years, the tips and “coaching” I received from photographers who were more experienced than I proved to be an invaluable element of my photography “education”. I mimicked my mentors. And still do. If I liked the way someone else’s picture looked, I figured out how they did it and tried to duplicate it myself. I’m self-taught, so this is how I learn. When something works and I like it, I implement it in all my work, and it adds some variety. I’m always on the alert for new ideas and better methods of doing things!
Now that I’ve been doing photography for a while, I’ll find myself on the tip-sharing side of the coin from time to time. Instead of just trying out new ideas and better methods, I like to share how they work (or don’t work) for me. Some of these experiences I share here on the blog . . . some of them I share with the PRO members in the monthly PRO Reports.
Here’s the first 5 pages of the latest PRO Report. Perhaps you’ll be able to pick up some of the more advanced tips and topics that never made it to the blog. Click here to download it.
