Top 40 tips to help you take the very best photos | Pixel Photography

"1: Face your fears
Identify the photographic technique you’re least confident about and resolve to master it. For example, if your camera’s advanced flash modes fill you with fear, try spending just 15 or 20 minutes each day practising how to use them. This way you’ll be able to build up your confidence bit by bit, without becoming overwhelmed.
2: It’s all about you
Don’t get too hung up on equipment. Yes, it’s nice to have the best brands and the hottest technology, but ultimately a camera is just a device that captures and records light. You are the visionary. Only you make it happen.
3: Get it right in-camera
Always push yourself to achieve the perfect shot in-camera. A few extra minutes spent in the field tweaking exposures, fitting filters or refining compositions is always preferable to relying on Photoshop to bail you out. Software never produces such satisfying results."
These are great tips! As my wife and I are in the market for our own DSLR (finally time to upgrade from traditional SLR's!), we are excited to employ some of these classic reminders and tips. You can see some of my work here and here and here, oh and here too.
