What're the most common mistakes amateur photographers make?
Linhbergh: To me, the most common mistake is putting all of their trust into their gear than rather themselves. Stop being a gear whore and start becoming a photographer!
Will: The most common mistake anyone makes is listening to non-constructive criticism. The work that will matter the most to you - is entirely up to you. You are going to turn the shutter dial the wrong way and over expose a few shots before it becomes automated and reflex.
Larry: I see quite a few up and coming photographers forgetting to watermark their photos with their name, age, sex, address, mothers maiden name, blood type and phone number.
Jose: Shooting with flash. If you still haven’t mastered the camera, don’t mess with lighting. It’s a whole new ball game. Don’t be afraid to shoot something new. Practice makes perfect.
Burroughs: Over processing. Gets 'em every time. No question.
