Which bad photography habits you really need to quit??
None of those ones anyway.
Pushing the shutter button
I am guilty of pixel peeping and keeping ISO low. Whenever I do use auto-ISO, I generally keep it capped at 800. Now I know I can push that for most things, and I do need to start doing so probably.
I like how the text mentions the Fuji X100 ... a very silent camera. My D750 doesnt leave any doubt if I take a picture, so yeah, I sometimes shy away.
Thats why I want a full frame sensor with "only" 12 Megapixels. Nikon ? Pretty please ? Love how the second article mentions the same thing.
Sue me. Sometimes I'm exhausted and cant summon my spirits for good photography.
I only use the original Nikon Software for editing, there is no danger of overediting anything.
Well, thats why I "chimp" at the start of every photographic session.
What is "white balance" ? I shoot RAW, dammit ! I only rarely bother with white balance.
... why does ONE (thorough) check not suffice ?
Say what again ? The real crime is people constantly switching lenses. I love to for example just using my trusty 28mm.
Whowsies !!! You clearly have an issue, go see a doctor !
- Worry too much about camera and lens stopping you from make good photographs.
- Worry too much about wife will get upset when buying expensive photography gears.
- Laughing at other people who still using film.
- In order to be a pro, I need to shoot all manual including manual focus.
- Drinking too much coffee and blame the IS/VR/OS/VC does not work.
- Always think "C"anon is ahead of "N"ikon base on alphabetical order.
- And most important, spending too much time reading and posting on photography forums instead of taking photos especially posting about bad photography habits.
Shoot first, check camera second.
Stop at one or two shots.
Not have a camera with me.
Not have a ( xx lens, tripod, flash, etc.) with me.
Wiping my SD cards.
Poor photo management.
reading stupid articles ... I really need to quit that and read only quality articles.
I've occasionally fallen foul of a few - not reseting ISO, is the worst as having the wrong lens on for an unexpected oportunity (be prepared) is only because I was prepared for another possibility.
I don't agree with their title for 'Hesitation' it should be TIMING. Sometimes a fraction more hesitation would vastly improve the shot.
On those occasions I spray & pray, I DO know the settings, and will tend to be pushing my luck with them, or trying to nailthe timing on tricky subjects.
Panning with a subject with the shutter speed well below that I know will be sharp, or trying to catch the exhaust flame that occurs most laps about the same spot, but is gone in a fraction of a second.
Suprisingly they missed off one many photographers suffer from - not taking their camera EVERYWHERE. I'm sure I see the best sunsets etc. on the days I leave my camera at home...
Wait.. your supposed to push that?
Huh.. wow.. I think you've just taken my photography to the next level. Thanks Pix! You're a genius!
Not resetting ISO from previous shots!
Not checking the entire viewfinder before taking the shot.
Waiting for perfect conditions for outdoor shooting.
Buying equipment that I don't really "need"!!!!
I wait for the wrong timing then spray and pray while chimping at 100% so I can pixel peep.
Talk about multitasking.
