I am really glad to be sharing an article from a PhotoBlog veteran, Helen (@girafferacing).
She has been an inspiration to me since day one and has been a member of PhotoBlog way before I came along. In the article, she talks about very practical things everybody could easily do to improve their photography skills.
For example, she mentions the importance of not dismissing the familiar (where you live or your own backyard for example). One way to look creatively at a familiar place is to challenge yourself (weekly themes, or limiting yourself to certain techniques or equipment)
It is a really interesting read. Please have a look and let her know your thoughts in the comment section.
