When you’re first starting out photographing people with flash, it can be a bit overwhelming. Even if you’re used to shooting with natural light, the pieces don’t all click into place right away and it’s easy to make mistakes and not be entirely sure how to rectify the problem. So, here’s Francisco Hernandez with three of the mistakes he sees new off-camera flash photographers making and how to resolve them.
I always say that making mistakes is a part of learning. But, it doesn’t always have to be your mistakes, you can also learn from those that other people make. Karl Taylor noticed that there are seven mistakes that food photographers make regularly. So, if you’re into food photography, read on, watch the video and take notes so you don’t have to make them too.
I believe that we all want to grow and become better at photography. But we also make some mistakes that hinder this growth and make it slower than it could be. In his latest video, Michael Shainblum shares the five most common mistakes that might be slowing down your growth. While he focuses on landscape photography, some of these can definitely be applied to other genres as well.
I’ve said it before and you’ll sure hear me say it again: we all make mistakes. They are an integral part of the learning process, so we can’t really do without them… But, the sooner you stop making the same mistakes all over again, the sooner you’ll improve. In this video, Eli Infante talks about three common mistakes he used to make and you probably make them, too. But as soon as you overcome them, you’ll raise your portrait photography to a much higher level.
Like any career, becoming a professional photographer requires time, effort, skill, and of course – making mistakes. But there are some mistakes that you may keep making and that are constantly holding you back without you even noticing.

There are many videos and blog posts about photography mistakes. Personally, I really enjoy them and I’ve learned a lot from them. But James Popsys has a different view on the subject. In this video, he questions if there’s really such thing as “photography mistake,” and what is the only thing that we might call that way.
Food photography is one of the genres that may seem relatively simple. At least that’s how I felt – until I actually started photographing food. There is so much to learn, and of course, there are many mistakes that food photographers make even past the beginner stage. In this video, Scott Choucino discusses four big mistakes food photographers make when they’re just starting out, but they often keep happening during the later stages of their career.
When taking photos, it’s good to know what you should so, but it’s equally important to know what to avoid. In this video, Karl Taylor discusses eight things that we should avoid in portrait photography, yet we do them so often. Luckily, they’re easy to fix, so check out the video and make sure to have them in mind at your next shoot.
While most of us aren’t out shooting, now is a perfect time to sit and reflect on the photographic and filmmaking mistakes we’ve made, and how we can stop making them going forward. In this video, Joris Hermans talks about 8 of the dumbest photography and filmmaking mistakes he’s made (and sometimes still makes). They’re mistakes that almost all of us have made at some point.
As I always say, we all make mistakes, and it’s good because we learn from them. But there are some mistakes that can be avoided, or at least we can learn to overcome them much faster.
