Improvement in any area requires a plan and some action. If you would like to improve the results that you get from your own photography there are any number of different things that you can do to enhance your skills. Here we’ll take a look at 10 things anyone can do, at virtually no cost, that can help to make a noticeable difference in your photography over the next 30 days.

1. Learn the Functions and Features of Your Camera

Regardless of what type of camera you are using you will need to know how it works and how to use it in order to get the best results. It doesn’t matter if you’re using a DSLR, a point and shoot, or a smartphone camera, having a better understanding of how it works and what you can do will open up new possibilities and allow you to use it more effectively.

The best place to start is, of course, the camera’s manual. Manual’s aren’t the most exciting reading, so many people ignore them, but you can pick up a lot of valuable information from the manual. You don’t necessarily need to read it cover-to-cover, but skim through it and look for things that are new to you. You can also find some helpful information from various websites and blogs. Do a Google search for your camera model and you’re likely to find some tutorials and guides that may teach things that aren’t in the manual. [read]
