Quick Tip - Spray and Pray
What if every photo you took cost you $1, would you spray and pray? Let me define that, its when you shoot without thinking and just pray that you get something good.
You will become a much better photographer when you get into the mind set that you will feel the moment and capture it.
This is a mentality for all photographers especially beginners with Nikon D3100, D5100, D7000, and Canon shooters with T1i, T2i, T3i and 60d.
