I have made and seen loads of mistakes in photography and these are my top 7 photography mistakes I see all the time.. In this video I explain how easy it is to avoid making these same mistakes.
Please note, my advice come from a particularly artistic sensibility that not everyone shares. Take, for example, the idea that a photo should have a single point of focus. That really does make for good images. However the opposite can also be true. Consider the paintings of Salvador Dali. Many of his works have multiple different things to focus on.
My seven rules are great. They work. But breaking the rules on purpose can also work if you maybe have a different purpose for your art, want to create a certain unsettled feeling, or just have a different aesthetic sense altogether.
