The 7 Deadly Photo Mistakes

Not sure why deadly, and that there are only 7 but the cheeky chaps over at photoformula.com have put together a free downloadable pdf that has seven essential points you need to think about as a photographer.

It’s a work of love to an extent.  Here are just a few of the things you can learn from it:

  1. What 4CS is!  (This is a little technique, that when I tell you, you won’t believe how simple it is).  But honestly, when I was told about it, I had a HUGE “ah ha” moment.  From that moment on, I haven’t looked through a camera viewfinder the same way
  2. How to make every portrait pop and look BEAUTIFUL!  This again is so simple, but hardly anyone does it (can anyone say webcam photos).
  3. How to get “tack sharp” images and how to forget about noisy images
  4. The proper settings you should be using on your camera (it’s not what you might think)
  5. How a 2 second photoshop correction can make sure your photo is NEVER passed over.
  6. How not to be a complete fool like me, and make sure you never leave the house without a memory card (I’ve seriously done this numerous occasions)
  7. …and many more tips, instructions, settings and all around goodness!!!

Whilst there getting your free download have a look at his images, great looking photo-journalism and street shots plus lots of sports including David Beckham playing “soccer” in the US
