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.

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. In this video, Nigel Danson reflects on the five biggest mistakes beginner landscape photographers make when editing their photos in Lightroom.
Whenever you’re learning something, or even when doing it every day as your profession, you’re going to make mistakes. It’s just a fact of life. What’s important is how we deal with those mistakes and what we learn from them.
Jordy over at Cinecom has almost certainly made his fair share of mistakes over the years and in this video, he’s going to help you benefit from them. Here he shares five of the biggest mistakes he’s made so that you don’t have to.
With the gift-giving season upon us, a lot of people are bound to be getting new drones in the not-too-distant future. Many of these drones will be received by people who’ve never flown a drone before. Quite a few of them may not still have a working drone by the end of the day. So it’s good to get yourself a little educated first, before you kill your shiny new, potentially expensive, toy.
In this video, Jeven Dovey and Aldryn Estacio from FlytPath go through ten of the biggest mistakes they see new drone pilots making, and some they’ve made themselves. Some of the items on the list are common sense once you’ve got the benefit of hindsight, while some are just good practice so you’re not disappointed with your shots.
As I often mention, we all make mistakes and it’s perfectly fine as long as we learn from them. But nevertheless, some mistakes are still better to avoid and to make them as rarely as possible. In this fantastic video, Mads Peter Iversen shares five mistakes that are crucial to avoid in landscape photography. They aren’t strictly composition or gear-related, but they rather refer to our habits that could be harmful to our growth as photographers.
Portrait photography has boomed over the last couple of decades since photography went digital. As the cost of creating a photo has reduced to practically nothing, no longer are we content with just taking fun photos of our friends, we have to make portraits.
Shooting good portraits isn’t difficult, at least in principle, but there are a lot of common mistakes people make early on in their journey (and sometimes later in their journey). In this video, portrait photographer, Miguel Quiles talks about five of the most common mistakes he believes portrait photographers make and how you can fix them.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: we all make tons of mistakes and it’s a way of learning. However, some mistakes are just cute little “hiccups,” while the others may cost you a lot of your time, effort and wear you out emotionally. In this video, Gene Nagata a.k.a. Potato Jet shares five biggest mistakes he’s made as a freelance filmmaker, and they apply to photographers, too. I’m sure we’ve all made them, and many of us still do. So, this video will remind us to stop making the same mistakes and starting making the best out of our filmmaking or photography careers.
