This article was passed to me from a co-worker and I felt it was necessary to pass on. The article has four rules that are hard to live by, but are a must in photograpy.
Rule 1: Self-restraint
Rule 2: Take shots that aren’t trite.
Rule 3: When you get your photos home, be brutal. Edit down all the pictures.
Rule 4: Don’t reflexively adopt the notion that you must present a chronological story though your photographs.
Breaking the chronological order is hard to do, but the rewards are higher and it does look better when presenting it. Second, the article talks about editing in the camera. I recommend DON”T DO IT. Save the editing for the computer. When editing on the “big screen”, a shot you might have erased on the camera might look amazing full size. ONLY edit in the camera if space is an issue, but be careful. If this issue comes up repeatedly buy another memory card. They are cheap. Plus, editing kills the battery life of the camera.
Most importantly, take a vacation!
