20 Things Most Photographers Get Wrong

Award-winning author and photographer Tony Northrup does a great job of picking apart various myths and misconceptions regarding photography. He published more than 30 how-to books and sold more than a million copies around the world. And He shoots travel and nature photography everywhere he goes.

Below are the 20 things most photographers get wrong by Tony Northrup. Check out!

INDEX BELOW:

#1: 0:52 – Your lens’ SWEET SPOT probably isn’t f/8
#2: 1:43 – FOCUS BREATHING might make your lens short
#3: 6:37 – The RECIPROCAL RULE isn’t a rule at all
#4: 10:58 – Buying a camera without checking the lenses
#5: 12:23 – Using INFINITY FOCUS to get everything in focus
#6: 13:22 – DEPTH-OF-FIELD isn’t real at all
#7: 14:25 – 4K is great even if your screen isn’t
#8: 16:00 – Printing at 300 DPI doesn’t mean perfect sharpness
#9: 16:45 – F/STOPs don’t tell you the exposure, T-STOPS do
#10: 18:12 – FULL FRAME LENSES on CROP BODIES are less sharp
#11: 20:39 – FILTERS aren’t worth it for many photographers
#12: 21:37 – Many REVIEWS aren’t TRUSTWORTHY
#13: 27:04 – Cropping a sharper, short lens beats longer lenses
#14: 29:22 – Apply the CROP FACTOR to focal length & f/stop
#15: 32:38 – HIGH MEGAPIXELS doesn’t mean HIGH NOISE
#16: 34:00 – Noise at base ISO is important
#17: 35:25 – ISO is not an acronym, and is “eye-so”, not I-S-O
#18: 36:11 – AUTOFOCUS is more accurate than MANUAL FOCUS
#19: 38:23 – AUTOEXPOSURE is better than LIGHT METERS
#20: 41:07 – ART is more important than TECHNOLOGY
