At the suggestion of Bitter that some people contribute more than they critique (or, at least provide some semblance of a clue as to knowing a lick about photography) I give to you these three tips/suggestions with relevant photographs. Please note the tips are nothing new or special, but I hope the images are decent examples of how being prepared/aware can allow you to come away with a nice photo. First, keep your gear ready, and keep your eyes open. Was my camera not in the open, and had I not looked up from my desk I would have missed this unusual (for around here) sunset: Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 @ [1/50th | f8.0 | ISO 200] Secondly, set traps. And be patient. Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 @ [150mm | 1/400th | f/4.0 | ISO 200] Thirdly, enjoy the world around you. These Totem Poles stood out for me because of their vivid colours against the forested backdrop. Sigma 50-150 f/2.8 @ [150mm | 1/4000th | f/2.8 | ISO 200] That's all for now. Happy shooting.
