    I liked this one. with old, manual cameras, I have taken reasonably
    good pictures. I usually get happy to look at the slides out of the
    lab. Recently for a job I borrowed a Nikon D2x, and many picturesd
    dissapointed me. i thought I canno blame it on the camera. that is the
    top of the line, most modern Nikon. So, it should be me. On the other
    hand I know that I am not that bad.........
    I don't know how this computer works........

    That's exactly what I do for early morning shots - stay up very late!

    My working hours tend to be 10:30am to ... whatever time is necessary,
    often late into the night. But I'm not an early riser.

    Perhaps no coincidence that my favourite movie genre is film noir.

    1. Get into the habit of carrying a camera with you all the time.
    2. Know how all the features on the camera work and use what is appropriate for the situation.
    3. Develop composition skills, the instant feedback from digital camera's and low film costs can improve composition significantly in a short time.

  9. Well, I am. - But not a professional....I just play trumpet for a local
    community band. It is true, however, that the later it is, the better I can
    play. - I think my main problem was that I worked rotating shifts for the
    last 30 years of my working life....This tended to screw up my internal

  10. To me, it means doing whatever you need to do to get the "best" effect. I
    use Photoshop to edit my stuff, and I am not a wimp about it....If I think
    one of my pictures looks better with a 35% increase in contrast, well,
    that's exactly what I put in....35%....No more, no less.......

    That's not editing, that's 'tweaking', 'adjusting', 'post-production', or
    whatever. Edit hard means be ruthless about what you keep: only show your
    best work, and don't show a picture that isn't good enough just because
    _you_ know how hard it was to get it: the viewer doesn't care about that,
    only about whether it is a good picture in its own right or not.

    Not my top three - I deliberately made them as universal as possible. I
    think quite a number of the 'tips' here that are about other than purely
    'technical' considerations are universal in their application.

    LOL :)

    I used to sing till glandular fever cracked my voice, but that's it: I gave
    up both the piano and the violin (alas). There is an electric bass hanging
    on the wall right next to my desk as I write this though.

    But I do come from a family of musicians. (And I photograph concerts

    That is what I ment with "edit hard".

    When I did a lot of film shooting, I used to bother with enlarging
    about 10% of my shots (no winder/motor drive). I know a lot of people
    are more trigger-happy in digital, but start off with only considering
    the best 10% could be a starting point. In fact, just forcing oneself
    to select the best 10 (or whatever)% could be a good exercise.
