Postby proj1 » Fri Jan 08, 2010 7:39 am

While the instant feedback gives the impression that digital photography is easy, here are some very common beginner mistakes:

1. Not reading the owners’ manual
2. Thinking the only way to get a certain picture is to buy special equipment
3. Not opening a picture on a computer and viewing it at 100%
4. Deleting pictures based on LCD monitor on back of camera
5. Shooting everything in Program or Auto Exposure mode
6. Buying too much camera for your level of experience
7. Not backing up pictures before deleting images on memory card
8. Not buying enough memory cards
9. Not buying enough batteries
10. Not researching computer to determine post production capability

Your post is really helpful. Thanks a lot for sharing this information. I am also just a beginner in photography field. And for any kind of doubt I ask one of the Photographer in Port Macquarie for help. He is helping me a lot. He is renowned photographer. I am sure you have heard about him.
