As the new year commences, let’s take a pledge. A photographer’s pledge.
# I’ll carry a camera with me always.
# I’ll push the limits of my gear & only upgrade/buy new gear if I’m unable to achieve the desired results with my current gear.
# I’ll be patient.
# I’ll try something new every-time I release the shutter.
# I’ll carry a tripod with me & not leave it at home since it is heavy.
# I’ll treat the subject(living or non-living) with respect.
# I’ll enjoy while photographing.
# I’ll try to get it right in camera than to fix it later in post.
# I’ll use photo manipulation judiciously to enhance & not to turn a photograph into photo-manipulated art.
# I’ll respect other photographers & their work.
