One does not learn from success. There are two advanced tools you need to think about and develop. But firstly, you have to take your time, slow down and think about the shot. Take your photo book with you and reread a lesson and think about how it is applied to your situation. A DSLR can be so easy to shoot fast, just slap it on Auto Everything and boom, boom, boom ... fini. Put the camera on single frame, even for action, single frame it as a learning technique ... then wait for the peak of action. 1) Previsualization: Before you even raise the viewfinder to your eye, think about the final image. How does your mind's eye see the final photo? In B&W, shallow DOF, stopping motion, blurring motion, low angle shooting up, wide angle, tight cropping on the subject, back lighted, side lighted, et cetera. See the final image than adjust the camera to capture said image. (Camera placement, lighting angle, lens choice, aperture, shutter speed and ISO.) Think about it all and most importantly, previsualize the final image. 2) Harmonize with Your Gear: Shoot, shoot some more and when you think you're finished, shoot again. Harmonize with your equipment to the point where the camera is an extension of your eyes, the camera settings an extension of your hands to the point where you don't have to remove your eye from the viewfinder to make adjustments. Through usage learn how the different focal lengths and apertures affect the image.
