What Kind of Photography Mistakes are you Likely to Make?

By: Muna wa Wanjiru

As photographers, I believe our greatest trait to be the ability to learn from our photography mistakes and grow. On reflection though, it doesn't seem to be one that the photographers of this world have inherited.

If there's some kind of photography mistakes to be made, you can be sure that as a photographer that you will almost definitely make it, and not necessarily only once. There are times that you will make the same photography mistakes over again.

And that's not even necessarily through the fact that you don't learn from photography mistakes. It's more from the fact that there are so many photography mistakes to make, that you just have a greater choice to choose from, thereby making it easier for you to do something you shouldn't.

Like leaving the lens cap on while you take the shot of your life. Or ignoring that fallen branch just in front of you only to trip on it and fall wildly into your shot and thereby change everything around and gain a few bruises in your efforts to save your camera.

I could go on for hours on end reciting all the photography mistakes that have gone wrong for me at some point in my photographic life or other, but I'm pretty sure that would only send you into gales of laughter so I decided against giving you anything too specific.

You can infer what you want from these little tips of what not to do, but rest assured that if you're even thinking of taking up photography, you will make at least one if not almost all of these photography mistakes.

And if you've been at this for some time now, then you know that what I'm saying is true. Indeed, you would have made a number of these photography mistakes yourself at one point or another.

I can assure you that no matter how hard you try, there's always bound to be a time when you will make these photography mistakes, and it won't matter if you've already made them before.

Just don't worry if - and when - it happens to you. The best thing you can do is to pick up the pieces, move on and try you hardest not to do it again, or at least not to do it again within the span of a few months! That way you won't feel as bad - maybe.
