How to Improve Your Photography
Delve into good books about its history and practitioners
I see a lot of offers on social media for courses on how to improve your photography skills that all focus on understanding the tools of the trade. I’m convinced that it is equally important as photographers and photography lovers to get an idea of the history of photography and to take time to become acquainted with great works. Beyond any practical skills, being inspired and learning from great works is the best way to reflect on one’s practice.
