12 Mistakes Beginner Photographers Make And Tips on How To Fix Them FAST!

12 Mistakes Beginner Photographers Make And How To Fix Them Fast! These are tips for mistakes that are going to completely transform the way you take photographs.


150k views on my recent YouTube video on how to pose. Love you guys dig the tips. So to continue in that flow, here is a breakdown of this shot. I shot from lower down and camera tilted up, giving the impression of thicker thighs. Remember - whatever is closer to the camera appears larger. In this shot it's my thighs. I love my body, but photography allows you to create a new reality and story if you feel like it. Today I was going for the bootylicious look. I created interesting angles with my arms and also hid my phone behind my back which is linked to the camera as a remote trigger with a self timer and I can see my poses on the screen too. I tilted my head back to catch the light, which also doubled up as a boss expression. If you watched my recent photo critique, I uncovered within my photos and submitted images that often times women present a very timid expression, looking down, being shy. I am now aiming to make all my poses and expressions boss because I think women shrink themselves already too much as it is, so I don't want to contribute to that anymore. In total, I probably took 20 photos in this location before I landed on one I liked. The edit I did on this photo - colour grading in Lightroom and then in Photoshop I got rid of some wires, strange intersecting trees (can you guess?), poles, evened out my skin tone because it was blotchy from the uneven light and nipped in my waist a little bit. Ok...that's it. Who here cares about the photo process and who is here as an observer? Comment πŸ“· or πŸ‘! . . . #Bali #BaliTravel #Photography #SelfPortraits #TravelMore

Upside down image makes sense on my feed. Art - let's just leave it at that. Upside down art. Having the most unreal time exploring the jungles of Bali, hanging out with monkeys, sleeping tonight in jungle huts with an outdoor shower and a private waterfall, climbing a volcano for sunrise in the morning. All in all, life is epic. I hope your day is great too. What amazing adventures do you have coming up? . . Felt the need to say this today. I wasn't born with special skills or abilities. I wasn't born into a rich family. I just learned all the skills I needed to over the last 10 years to live a remote life. That's photography, videography, website management, social media, ecommerce and more. Please, please never think a remote life is out of reach for you if you want this. All of us can have it, it's slowly become the norm, you're not too old or too young to learn. Just do it. Take control of your existence and the precious time you have on this planet. Learn it and live it. Ok preach mode over ;) . . . #Bali #TravelBali #Adventure #TravelMore

Of all the words that pour out of our mouths every day, how many are really ours, and how many are borrowed from others? How often do we say something original? Is there such a thing as our own words anyway? I think about this a lot. Most of our beliefs and values are learned from our parents and friends. A few years back I caught myself arguing strongly about a topic and I sounded exactly like my mum (she's awesome and I love what she preaches), but since then I've been hyper aware to distinguish between what I really believe and what I was taught to believe. Even the fact that our name - something that often means so much to us, often represents us in a way, we didn't even decide to be called that. It's forever a journey to peel back societal and environmental conditioning, but it's a journey all of us should be on, to get back to our authentic self, because once we stand as we truly are, that's when the world welcomes us the most. There might be some initial resistance to those that are original, but being unapologetic about it, quickly allows others to be their true selves too. . . . #Iceland #TravelMore #TravelIceland #AdventureTime

I wanted to be a rockstar when I was young (don't we all). I remember being super young and finding an image of a musician on stage with a stadium in front of him cheering him on. "One day that will be me!" I thought to myself. Fast forward to today and I still haven't learned to play an instrument but 32,000+ new people started following me just on YouTube alone in the last few weeks. That's a stadium full of people 😳😳😳 Go figure. The universe is apparently always listening, she just knows much better what you actually need. YouTube seems to be my stadium to make dope little videos on travel, photography and human optimization and explore the world full time whilst doing it. Seems much better than being a muso to be honest. What did you want to be when you were growing up? Did it come true? Or did something better come along? Ps. Thank you all for the support! You guys are unreal and you rock my socks! πŸ•ΊπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸ» . . Ppss. How are you all finding me? Very curious πŸ€— . . #Bali #TravelMore #TravelBali
