Have your camera handy. This seems so obvious but its funny how many people miss this point. How on the Earth will you make photographs without a camera by hand?
Ensure you take your camera wherever you go. Take it with you to your work place, college, restaurant or even on your trip to the grocery store. Whether you’re leaving your home for 5 minutes or for 5 hours, you must take your camera along. A photo opportunity doesn’t comes with prior intimation, it comes out of nowhere & when you least expect it. At times, you’re bound to return home empty handed without a single photo opportunity but let that not deter you to leave the camera at home next time. Again you need to put inconvenience aside if you’re on pursuit of good photographs. If not your full fledged DSLR camera, take along a point & shoot camera along.
I always have camera with me, always! Many times, I return(& still) home without a single good click. Still if you ask me, some of my best photographs were made when I least expected them. Offcourse, I would have missed them had I not bought my camera along. So, always keep your camera handy folks.
