You've probably seen videos and articles that discuss common mistakes photographers tend to make. This great video outlines five less often discussed (though still common) mistakes and how you can correct them to improve your photography work.
Coming to you from Saurav Sinha, this great video goes over five mistakes that you might not realize you're making. While some photographers might debate the merits of using a UV filter, one mistake that particularly resonated with me was not investing in a top quality tripod. When I was first starting out, I bought a very cheap tripod (I honestly think it was $19, if I remember correctly). In retrospect, it was absolutely insane to trust that flimsy hunk of aluminum to safely hold thousands of dollars worth of fragile camera gear. And though I was lucky that I never had an accident that damaged my gear, I did miss a lot of shots simply because it was such a weak tripod that it did a terrible job of actually holding my equipment steady. When I invested in a proper professional setup, I saw my keeper rate go up markedly. Check out the video above for more helpful tips!
