How to become a better photographer through 'visual exercise' by Sean Tucker
This video is by London based photographer/videographer Sean Tucker. He offers some advice about how to incorporate 'visual exercises' into your daily life. I've always believed that the mark of a great photographer/videographer is pre-visualization. When you can visualize the shot you want before you even begin grabbing the gear. This exercise is really great for developing that skill.
We all love technical specs and new gear. It's undeniable, great gear is going to produce better images. However, you'll never get those shots that speak to people until you get back to the basics. Recognizing amazing light when you see it and being able to compose a compelling shot. Whether you care about the "art of photography" or not you want your images to grab people. Either for business or hobby. Learning how to "see things" is critical.
