Steve Miller says:

That is a fantastic checklist to taking better images. I need to print it and tape it to my forearm whenever I go shooting. I intuitively do most of that, but I forget something every time I shoot.

I used to go out and setup in one spot and shoot till the light is gone. Only recently have I made a point to arrive early and scope out several potential comp's and try to shoot images from each. Of course; the light dictates what is shot and when.

I'm always chasing the light.

You guys have a fantastic YT channel, thank you for the effort in publishing this content.

First I would like to say I truly enjoy your videos and tutorials. They pack plenty information.
But I'm have trouble with making my photos interesting. I know one of my problems is my settings. I having trouble with choosing the correct ones. Could you please offer any suggestions on this for me? I'm open to any!!

Steve Thornes says:

Great advice. Many thanks.

Oleksandr Basov says:

These are really the things we all need to keep in mind when taking good photos. Thank you so much!

This was honestly the best video about photography I've every watched. It's so refreshing hearing some honest, rational and yet ironic thinking out there. The fact that this channel only has less than 30k subscribers where greedy and pretentious people like many on YT have millions is just criminal.

Carl Jarvinen says:

Nothing new in any of the tips, but always good to hear them now and again until they all become second nature. Especially #15 Practice, Practice , Practice…thanks…
