Tips and tricks are thrown around left and right. Here are nine tips you want to ignore.
In his latest video, James Popsys share nine tips he thinks are worth ignoring.
One of these tips is to always use a tripod. Nothing can be further from the truth. There is no direct relation between getting a good photo and using a tripod. Most cameras these days have built-in image stabilization and vibration compensation, which can help in getting a sharp photo. Even then, there is often more than enough light to have a fast shutter speed. The tripod is often basically just in the way and slowing you down.
Another tip he thinks is unnecessary is to use the exactly right focal length and exactly right composition. He suggests shooting a little wider than you think you need. This gives room for cropping and working the photo afterwards in post-processing. As we all know, you can always crop, but you can never add more information to a photo. He also combines these two tips and says don’t spend too much time with the same composition, and go shoot something else.
