Don’t be a lazy tourist/photographer.

Plan ahead for lighting. Look at Google Maps to find out which direction the building you plan to photograph is facing. What time the facility opens and closes will dictate when you should be there. Try to cluster sites so you can better manage your time.

In addition, maintain your equipment. If possible always use the manufacturer to service your equipment. They know your equipment best.

Find your style of photography and stick with it?

Well that's a great way to make sure your photography goes stale in a hurry. Your style of photography is something that will come naturally over time. We each see and visualize the world differently. Constantly trying to stay in one look will help you build a very small box in which your photography will live.

Think outside the box and push your photography to go further.

Choose how your images look and have a purpose for it.

The more photos you take, the better you get. So they say.

There's no better way to reinforce bad habits than by doing something over and over again. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. Here at NYC Photo Safari, we certainly do not believe that you should take fewer photos and we definitely encourage everyone to experiment more. But the key is not simply to try more things nor is it to try different things, but you also need to evaluate your photos to see what worked and what didn't work.
