1. Never do photography to become a rock-star. 
2. Enjoy what you are shooting. 
3. Prepare well for your shooting, realizing that your battery isn’t charge when you’re setting up for that  sunrise shoot is too late! 
4. Always take one warm garment more than you actually need with you 
5. Pay attention to your thoughts and emotions while you are shooting

33. Every shooting situation is different than you expect 
34. Pay attention to s-curves and lines 
35. Always shoot in RAW 
36. Keep your sensor clean, so you can save some work cleaning your image in post production 
37. Discover the things you think are beautiful 
38. It takes time to become a good photographer 
39. The best equipment is that what you have now 
40. You can’t take photographs of everything 
41. Break the rules of photography knowingly, but not your camera 
42. Pay attention to the different way that light falls on different parts of your scene 
43. The eye moves to the point of contrast 
44. Clouds increase the atmosphere of a landscape 
45. Start a photoblog 
46. Accept praise and say “thank you” 
47. ‘Nice Shot’ is not a very useful comment to write
48. ‘Amazing!’ isn’t useful either. Try to describe specifically what you like or don’t like about an  image. 
49. You are not your camera 
50. Ask a question at the end of your comment on a photo to get a ping-pong conversation with the  photographer 
51. Do a review of your archives on a regular basis, the longer you photograph - the more diamonds are hidden there 
52. Always clarify what the eyecatcher (focal point) will be in your image

55. Your opinion about photography is important! 
56. Leave a funny but thoughtful comment

58. Limit your photograph to the substance 
59. Participate in Photocontests 
60. Post processing = Optimizing your image to the best result 
61. Shoot exposure latitudes as often as possible 
62. Use photomatix as seldom as possible, HDR’s always have a synthetic flavor 
63. Always remember what brought you to photography 
64. Never shoot a person who doensn’t want to be photographed 
65. Always turn arround, sometimes the better image is behind you 
66. It’s who’s behind the camera, not the camera 
67. Mistakes are allowed! The more mistakes you make, the more you learn! 
68. If you have an idea and immediately you think : No, this is not going to work - Do it anyway. When   
      in doubt - always shoot. 
69. Understand and look to your histogram while shooting. It delivers very important information 
      about your image

79. Provide for enough disc space, because it’s cheap and you will need it. 
80. Learn to enjoy beautful moments when you don’t have a camera with you. 
81. Always arrive at least half an hour earlier before sunrise / sundown, composing in a hurry is a bad  thing.

84. Visit the same place as often as possible. Light never shows the same mountain. 
85. Print your images in big size. You will love it. 
86. Calibrate your monitor. Working with a monitor that is not accurate is like being together with someone you can’t trust. It always ends badly. 
87. Don’t think about what others may say about your image. If you like it, it’s worth publishing. 
88. Never address reproaches to yourself. Learn from your mistakes and look forward, not backward. 
89. Fight your laziness ! Creativitiy comes after discipline. 
90. Ask yourself : What do you want to express in your images ? 
91. Always try to think outside the box, collect new ideas about photographs you could do and ask  yourself : Why not? 
92. Search for a mentor. 
93. Photography is never a waste of time. 
94. Every community has it’s downsides. Don’t leave it out of an emotional response. 
95. There will always be people who will not like what you are doing.
