It’s Time to BECOME a Better Photographer

As I look back on my life to the times that I’ve most rapidly learned new skills (including in photography) it strikes me that in every instance the experience was ‘active’ rather than ‘passive’.

While I’ve certainly learned a lot of theory in different areas of life by reading books, listening to others speak and even by watching others do things – I’ve only actually acquired a new skill by practicing or putting into action what I learn.

By no means is learning bad – it often is a great foundation for taking action – but many photographers I meet have incredible knowledge of the theory of photography yet rarely take photos themselves.
