    Best Advice

    I thought we'd try to do some "interactive writing" and come up with a top 20 list of the best advice we've received as photographers. Only one per post and you must include the previous item(s) from the list so that the final post is a list of 20. (kind of like the "12 days of Christmas") Does this make sense? The new post needs to be in bold.

    So, if I post first, I write:
    1. Buying better gear is not going to make you a better photographer.

    The next post would look like:
    1. Buying better gear is not going to make you a better photographer.
    2. Get a job you love.

    . . . . etc. etc. etc.

    There are probably lots of lists out there, and it will be interesting to compare them with what we come up with.

    Let's give everybody a chance to put something in, so no more than 2 tips per person (unless we can't get enough and then we'll open it up to more)

    So, I'll start:

    1. Photograph the things you love and also that you don't love. It will keep you from getting into a rut.
