No doubt, when you are first starting out as a photographer, it can be overwhelming trying to learn and master a huge range of things, including lighting, cameras settings, composition, creative style, post-processing, and more. As such, it can be easy to make mistakes in a lot of different places. This great video tutorial discusses 10 common mistakes newer photographers make and how to fix them or avoid them entirely.
Coming to you from Parker Walbeck, this helpful video tutorial discusses 10 common mistakes beginner photographers make and what you can do to fix or avoid them. By far, the most common mistake I see beginners (and often experienced) photographers make is overediting a photo. It takes a little while to get a good sense of just how far to push a photo in the editing process, and as such, we often take things just a bit too far. Generally, it is better to err on the side of under-editing if anything. Try to step away from your edit when it is done for a few minutes and reevaluate it with fresh eyes at the end; it will often help you to get a better sense of how far the edit has gone. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Walbeck.
