Re: 35 things photographers do wrong...

1. You should always be mindful on what points you camera is using to focus and you can do this in auto as well (at lest with Nikon. I have been finding the 3d tracking mode extremely useful, though i control the initial spot for focusing. It does take fine tuning.

2. Pay attention to all camera settings, not just shutter speed.

3. Tripods while nice are not always available. Likewise they are also not allowed in several places.

4..Optimal aperture is generally +2 stops from full open. Yes that means a longer DOF in "slow" lenses as opposed to the more expensive 2.8 lenses or faster.

5. I don't know anyone who zooms after focusing or zooms to focus and then backs out to shoot. I have seen live view used to assist in detail focusing where the screen is zoomed in for a more pinpoint focus.

6. focusing in manual while certainly useful in situations where one is shooting through cages or other foreground elements, auto focus in modern dslrs is far better today than in the past. manual focusing means of the past are not available in today's dslr's making it more difficult to get sharp clear images every time, especially with fleeting moment type shots

7. I'll agree with this one though in general I have better luck leaving things with continuous focus typically used with moving subjects.

8. Well you can use exposure comp, but you can also use the law of reciprocity to adjust your final exposure to compensate as well. In fact if you look at your camera settings between the metered reading and whatever compensation you set, that is exacty what is happening.

9. You histogram is better than your light meter for judging exposure.

10-12 I agree with.

I read through the others and perhaps some good practical advice, but I think the biggest thing is completely missed:

1. You best camera is the one in your hand.
2. If you spend your time waiting for the clouds and light to be right, you may never get to your destination. Life is a journey and pictures are one memories of that journey.
