I am a huge fan of experimentation when learning something and photography is the perfect subject to get out into the field and just try things to see what happens.
Most of us end up taking the same photograph over and over again…
This is great in the field, but very boring when you get back to the computer and have to look at the same thing over and over again. Plus you only get 1 possible photo, even if you’ve taken 50 shots.
So my tip is ridiculously simple.
Take a photo and then move the camera somehow to recompose a new shot, before you take your next photo. Even if it is just rotating the camera slightly or zooming in – these little movements allow you to keep on experimenting and learning, but also give you you variety and potentially many useful photos – instead of one photo repeated over and over.
