How To Be A Better Photography Learner

image

Begins Len Metcalf, I have written on this subject before: how to learn about photography. In the original article, I talked about learning techniques, routines and ensuring you get your basic photography skills sorted. I described the importance of perfect practice, the art of practising slowly and with intent - practising perfectly until unconscious competence is reached. 

I then went on to explain how important it is to learn the language associated with the visual and performing arts. The article encouraged you to print your work and to find a positive and helpful mentor. I also encouraged you to find a positive learning community. This article continues with some additional ways to help you become a better photographer.

Focusing on one genre of photography will improve your¬†work far more quickly than wandering through multiple¬†genres, stumbling along randomly and experimenting. This¬†is something I see over and over. ‚ÄėI just love photography‚Äô,¬†or ‚ÄėI don‚Äôt know what I love‚Äô are often retorted to me when I¬†ask. Whilst the saying ‚ÄėJack of all trades and master of none‚Äô is¬†associated with this idea, it originally had its origins in a put¬†down of Shakespeare. Someone with generalist skills is indeed¬†admirable and incredibly useful, but you need to step back¬†and look at how they got there. Specialising brings a greater
level of mastery more efficiently, because of the way you learn.
