    I did a search which turned up no results. I hope it's not a repeat. Anyway, what would you say is the best photography advice you ever got? It could be something you read in a book, saw in a forum, got in a critique, heard from your dad or "Uncle Joe" or whoever else or whatever source.

    I had an international florist photographer who has won many awards, once tell me what DoF was. I knew what it was but he explained it to me in a way I could understand, he also briefly touched up on bokeh. This man is about 70 years old, decided to do this for fun and went international with it. He made it big all due to these two simple things.

    I believe someone once suggested I would be happier with a different hobby.

    Great question, but I can't think of a good answer. Information comes in small tidbits at a time and then it takes more time to use that information well. Sorry, maybe I shouldn't have posted, but I am interested in seeing what other people post.

    Take Pictures.

    The person that told me this was also a fan of Mark Twain. One of his favorite sayings was:
    ..the person that had took a bull by the tail once had learnt sixty or seventy times as much as a person that hadn't, and said a person that started in to carry a cat home by the tail was getting knowledge that was always going to be useful to him, and warn't ever going to grow dim or doubtful.
    -Tom Sawyer Abroad

    You can learn a whole lot just by doing.

    Rules can NOT be broken, unless you can create an OUTSTANDING shot, by doing so. :D
