Do you know what your camera does and how it does it?
Your camera has many features and does a lot, but in my opinion there are three primary things that you should know how to do with your camera. You should know how to focus, meter and make an exposure, preferably in manual exposure mode.
If you aren’t doing these things, your camera is doing them for you.
If your camera is doing these things for you, your camera is creating your photograph and you can’t take full responsibility for the composition of your picture.
Once you understand how these things fit into your process as a photographer and how to do these things with your camera you will be the one creating your photograph and you can take full responsibility for your photography.
Once you start creating your photographs and take full responsibility for your photography, you are beginning on the path of become a more thoughtful and better photographer.
