21 tips for incoming 365ers

December 26th, 2013
If you're a newbie and happen to be reading this, note that ANY advice you read should be taken with a grain of salt. It's your project, your rules. But as my first year comes to a close, I'm thinking retrospectively, and remembering that the various lists of suggestions in here were helpful to me as I began my journey.

So here in no particular order (and purely subjectively formulated) are 21 things I'd suggest for succeeding in doing this thing.

1. Have your camera nearby at all times, and be on the lookout for beauty.

2. Keep a tripod in your car.

3. Don't be a perfectionist. As someone said so succinctly a year ago, it’s 365 photos, not 365 masterpieces.

4. If you think you should have captured it, stop, go back, and capture it.

5. It all boils down to aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. Keep exploring all three.

6. Get close to some puddles. Then flip them.

7. Buy a birdfeeder.

8. Never underestimate the power of cliché.

9. Posting within a few days of taking a shot takes effort, but catching up on two weeks of uploading takes even more.

10. A macro lens opens up a whole new world.

11. Expect the unexpected.

12. There will be sad days. Let the camera help.

13. Get to know the world in black and white.

14. Purchase Adobe Lightroom.

15. Trust the rule of thirds.

16. Choose a spot from which to capture the seasons.

17. Find your own balance in interacting with this inspiring, supportive community, and celebrate that everyone does it differently.

18. Feel free to crop, edit, and otherwise process, but try to do it with subtlety.

(And if all else fails, ETSOOI.)

19. When you're not feeling the mojo, just pick up the camera and start walking around.

20. The photo you snap in the morning may be the only one you take all day.

21. A picture a day. No excuses.
December 26th, 2013
Well done! Note to self, buy Lightroom. Hope you'll stick around for year 2.
December 26th, 2013
this is nice! :) another tip from a newbie: do not be shy taking photos with people around.

i'm still struggling with this one though.
December 26th, 2013
A fabulous list JIm
December 26th, 2013
well said and and compiled :)
December 26th, 2013
The picture doesn't have to be perfect. Looking back, some of my favorites that I've taken have odd little quirks to them.

Good enough is good enough.
December 26th, 2013
Awesome. I'm sure I learnt all these lessons during my first year too, although I have forgotten them from time to time. Most important to me though is 3 and 21.
December 26th, 2013
Thank you, I'll try to put these into practice.
December 26th, 2013
Good advice and great showcase.
December 26th, 2013
Wonderful advice! Love the shots you chose to illustrate your points!
December 26th, 2013
Thanks for the tips, I will definitely use them
December 26th, 2013
This is just amazing!!!Thank you for taking the time to post and share those wonderful images.I hope every Newbie reads it :)
December 26th, 2013
Very good advice and beautifully done - I'm in my third year and find it useful & inspirational!
(Now there's a thought, if someone starting is a 'newbie' what do we call someone who has been here a while? Please don't say it's an 'oldbie'...!)
December 26th, 2013
Fantastic suggestions!! And so helpful to have an image to go with each one. I'd add, find 365ers work you like and follow them, study their EXIF settings. Also, do a tag search to find people using the same camera as you. Then follow and study their settings.
December 26th, 2013
There is wisdom in those tips for newbies and others.
December 26th, 2013
Good ideas all.

My two cents worth is to concentrate on the "craft" of photography. "Art" tends to happen somewhat automatically if your technique is good. Rely on the technology, Auto Focus and all its variants especially, but understand how it all works. Get out of AUTO as soon as you can and into "A" priority especially. Learn your camera and try for a new camera feature every week!
December 26th, 2013
A great list with great shots!

One thing I'd like to add is to have FUN! Experiment and Enjoy it!
December 26th, 2013
Fab list and the only thing I haven't done is a puddle shot I still have 6 days left though - hope it rains lol 😃☔
December 26th, 2013
@filsie65 Is a "365 veteran" acceptable?
December 26th, 2013
A Newbie Says "Oh thank you"! Great inspirations and tips.
December 26th, 2013
@vokesy euch... definitely not!! sounds worse than oldbie!..
December 26th, 2013
wonderful post thanks for that
December 26th, 2013
December 26th, 2013
Great advice and wonderful examples to illustrate your points!
December 26th, 2013
Made me smile....so many points are true. I've failed at the tripod rule...and now that it's dark all the time the hand tremor is killing me. I think that will be my new year's resolution. Thanks for posting.
December 26th, 2013
Great advice, I might add you get out of 365 what you put in. All enjoy.
December 26th, 2013
thanks for that, very useful tips and examples.
December 26th, 2013
Great tips! I've been here almost 5 months and it was fun to see how many of these I've known/done and how many I'm going to do in the future!
December 26th, 2013
Fantastic! Thanks for sharing these wise words and beautiful pictures!!
December 26th, 2013
You've spent a lot of time preparing these tips along with all the fabulous accompanying photos. I want to congratulate you as well as thank you and pinned this to one of my Pinterest boards as a reminder. I've been on 365 for 2 1/2 years and sadly still have a lot to learn. I've being doing it mainly for fun but I really need to brush up on photography skills and experiments. Thanks again for providing a jump start to a new year in photography. My favorite photo is #12.
December 26th, 2013
Good advice, wish someone gave me these when I started back in September, but ok, I've made 25% already and now I wouldn't call me a newbie anymore :)
3, 4, 12, 13, 17 & 20 are the most important to me.
December 26th, 2013
That's a brilliant list - and not just for newbies. I'll be entering my third year next year and I'll be referring back to your list. Thanks :)
December 26th, 2013
This is awesome! :). It has been a wonderful fun year with lots of great new friends!
December 26th, 2013
Thanks for the advice - great list!
December 26th, 2013
@filsie65 battle-scarred?
December 26th, 2013
December 26th, 2013
Great list!!!! #3 is the tip for me. My resolution for my 2014 365 project is to post everyday even if to me it is not a post worthy shot. I plan on capturing life one day at a time.
December 26th, 2013
@primitiveprobe Undoubtedly... however I was hoping for something more flattering, to reflect the longevity rather than the physical or mental issues....! :)
December 26th, 2013
@filsie65 an antonym for newbie is knowbie, but the usage is often derogatory such as in know-it-all, but one doesn't need to be seasoned on this site to be that ;-)
December 26th, 2013
Great list from a true educator. I am so glad you are continuing on. #18 is a strong one for me. I would also add "make friends with other photographers", both on this site and in person.
December 26th, 2013
Brilliant! You are a champ Squamloon.
December 26th, 2013
Thank you SO MUCH for this list and the accompanying photographs! I don't consider myself a newbie, coming up on finishing my first year, but I really AM. I have so much to learn. This list is VERY helpful! Can't wait to see what my 2nd year brings! Thanks again! :)
December 26th, 2013
Great list.
December 26th, 2013
Thanks for sharing! This is great! I feel inspired :)
December 26th, 2013
Good advice for us all. Thank you for taking the time.
December 26th, 2013
Great advice in this list and the responses. I am just over halfway through year one and am starting to carry a tripod in my car - that is a great one.
December 26th, 2013
Great idea Jim and all very valid tips. Nice to know we won't be the newbies any more in the coming year :)
December 26th, 2013
this is such great and thoughtful advice. as i wind up year one, and consider goals for the upcoming year, i will save this and refer back often.
Thank you, and happy snapping in 2014!
December 26th, 2013
Great advice!
December 26th, 2013
What a list, fantastic advice, I am heading into my third year. Each 365 photos are compiled into a photo journal, my way of keeping memories of the year as I am not into diaries. Advice #4 occurred yesterday :-)
December 26th, 2013
A small reminiscent tear to me eye Jim. Thank you for sharing.
December 26th, 2013
Thank you for all the advices ! :)
December 26th, 2013
Such a lot of good advice and excellent illustrations. I think establishing a rhythm to your posting helps a lot too. I would have loved to see this at the start of my first year, and it's still valuable. Must have taken quite a while to put together, so thanks!
December 26th, 2013
Thanks for the advice. :)
December 26th, 2013
Great write up. Thank you for taking the time x x x
December 27th, 2013
Fantastic tips - well done! I bet the newbies will appreciate this post. (I still feel like a newbie, even though I'm about 5 days from the end of Year 1). SO MUCH TO LEARN! :)
December 27th, 2013
Thanks so much for taking the time to compile this list. I love the challenge of photography - that there's so much to learn no matter how many days we've been posting. This next year I'll be working on the big three...aperture, shutter speed and ISO. I haven't missed a day since I started 365 on August 14 and I rarely am so committed to a project. So obviously it taps into a great interest of mine and I hope to keep improving!
December 27th, 2013
Awesome advice. Thanks for sharing.
December 27th, 2013
great advice! any tips for a 2nd year?! still trying to decide in the next few days!
December 27th, 2013
Wow! This is wonderful!! I really love your last one!
December 27th, 2013
Great advice! Don't forget... Have fun!
December 27th, 2013
Wonderful list. :)
December 27th, 2013
Love the tips (I do them all) and laughed at ETSOOI :)
December 27th, 2013
We are all Newbies even the Oldies!!Something new to learn and discover every single day!
December 27th, 2013
Great advise and some fabulous shots !
@mzzhope and well said Hope !
December 27th, 2013
Great advice, and great shots illustrating them.
This will come in handy for some. I'll be saving this for afterthought. ;-)
December 27th, 2013
Excellent advice!
December 27th, 2013
this is my expect the unexpected. awesome advise
December 27th, 2013
Brilliant list... Number 3 and 21 are def my fav.... Good luck newbies... Its an awesome ride....
December 27th, 2013
Great advice, Im only into my second month and am scared I'm running out of ideas. I really needed to read this tonight.
December 27th, 2013
Thank you so much for this! I'm not a newbie but I may as well be as I have not done well with my first attempt.
December 27th, 2013
Im 18 months in but this is just what I needed to remotivate ...thanks !
December 28th, 2013
Great list here, I read with a smile, all so true
December 28th, 2013
Thanks for this inspiring list. I plan to try again January I. It was very special when I was doing it and I want to get off the sidetrack.
December 29th, 2013
I am new and not feeling to good about learning my camera settings yet. But your input will help me alot when I fugure it out and try to get off of auto. YIKES
January 1st, 2014
Thank you for taking the time to post this, I am new and this is definitely going to help me!!
January 1st, 2014
Enjoyed your tips, thanks!
January 1st, 2014
@squamloon Thanks for the great tips. Looking forward to my first year!
January 1st, 2014
I just started my project 7 days ago so this is a great list for me... tripod is going in the car boot first thing in the morning!
January 1st, 2014
You are wise Jim, so wise! Perfect.
January 1st, 2014
Awesome list...wish I had seen one like it when I started...would not have felt so much pressure! Thanks!
January 1st, 2014
Great advice, this is my first day and I'm really looking forward to this journey!
January 2nd, 2014
Wonderful tips!! I just finished my first year, and I am pumped about starting the second! I got a new camera (Canon Rebel T3i) and learning all about it is my goal for my second year. I think the one that stands out the most to me is your advice - it's 365 photographs, not 365 masterpieces! Well said! Can you explain the "rule of thirds" please? Thanks.
January 2nd, 2014
Awesome advice - thanks!
January 2nd, 2014
January 2nd, 2014
This is great advice! :)
January 2nd, 2014
Why should I use this website to track my photos verses an app on my phone?
January 2nd, 2014
Great tips :)
January 2nd, 2014
Great advice, great company, great site @bstar0306
January 3rd, 2014
@barneyone I tried to email the picture to my email and it didn't work :( I feel attached to this website because it's how I found out about this project even though most photos are on my phone.
January 3rd, 2014
Beth Anne, maybe Northy's answer at this link would help you. http://365project.org/discuss/general/20288/can-t-upload-or-email-photos
January 3rd, 2014
Well done and great advice for us newbies :-)
January 3rd, 2014
Appreciate the advice! Looking forward to getting started on my new project!
January 3rd, 2014
Wow thank you so much for this advice. Love your photos
January 3rd, 2014
Great advise for someone like myself, who is most definitely a newbie!
January 4th, 2014
Thanks for the advice, very inspirational!!:-) I have Lightroom now all I need is to learn how to use it!! Lol
January 4th, 2014
Hey, uhm, I am new here and does anybody know if there is an app from this site?
January 4th, 2014
I take a lot of pictures with my phone and it is easier to upload on my phone but i cannot find the app from this site (i can fins apps from others sites though)
January 4th, 2014
Hi Renée, welcome to 365. There isn't a particular mobile app for 365project.org, but it works pretty well through your browser, and there is an email option.

I went through the very same thought process as you a year ago, and while I love having an app for everything, I can attest that the tradeoff of no app for an amazing community is well worth it. @reneemarije
January 7th, 2014
Thank you, timing for me finding this site was perfect, right before the beginning of the new year.

I'm looking forward to learning a lot!
January 7th, 2014
This is great! I love taking photos but was feeling a little daunted by a lot of the photos on here that are so wonderful. Felt that my day to day captures were not the things to put on here. This has made me feel a Bit better about it and the fact that 3 & 21 are there will help spur me on :-)
January 7th, 2014
@plumtree500 great photo! You can't beat kitties paws x
January 8th, 2014
Thank you!
January 8th, 2014
Thanks for great advice for us newbies,and the beautiful pictures. So many great shots. Love the rusted pipes.
January 9th, 2014
Thanks for the advice!! Love the photos!!
January 10th, 2014
Thanks. I'm a newbie and finding this post has reinforced a few things.
January 11th, 2014
Thank you for this beautifully done helpful hints! I am new this year and currently my iphone is my camera. I have done ok with it, but I see a better camera in my future.
I do have a question though...Could you explain why Lightroom is something to purchase? I have seen people talk about it and even jumped on the "webinar" the other day, but it was way over my head.

Thanks again and your pictures are wonderful!
January 11th, 2014
@jodibear58 So... I can only attest to my own journey to finding and loving LightRoom.

First, let me say that I began 365 thinking I was a SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera) purist, and within a week I realized that just the slightest of post-processing edits could take a good shot and turn it into a great one. Take for instance your really cool mushroom-lights-in-the-snow shot from January 3rd. If that were rotated just a hair to eliminate the upper lefthand corner, really cool would turn into SUPER cool. That takes less than a second in LightRoom (and in many other programs as well). Or you could leave it oriented as is and clone snow over that corner almost as quickly.

So anyway I knew I needed an editing program, and I found myself taking so many photos that I needed a new way to organize them. I've played over the years with a whole lot of platforms and used many different organizing and editing programs. And while each has its merits, when I began using LightRoom I immediately knew it had the "Just Right" factor of organizing/editing balance. It's not overwhelming like the full-fledged PhotoShop, not rigid and photo duplicating like iPhoto, not fickle and flimsy like beloved Picasa can sometimes be, and not esoteric like Gimp. I haven't used Aperture, so I can't speak for it, but I've just found that LightRoom works for sorting, editing, and exporting all of my shots in a simple and efficient manner, and that no task (organizing, editing, exporting) is subservient to the others.

I've rambled and perhaps complicated what's actually pretty simple: LightRoom can be used right away by a beginner, and yet it's feature-rich enough that one can grow and learn to do many complicated things with it. I highly recommend Julieanne Kost's videos. She really explains it well. http://jkost.com/lightroom.html
January 11th, 2014
@squamloon Thank you for the explanation and the answer to this question and the one I asked on my other pic. I had read that before I read this lol. I am going to look into Lightroom. It sounds less overwhelming than photoshop.
January 12th, 2014
Thank you so much for the tips. I am just trying to make this to hard I think. And can't seem to get off of auto.
January 12th, 2014
Great tips. I look forward to completing my first 365 project
January 13th, 2014
Thank you for the inspiring suggestions!

I have Lightroom and have a question. Can you please share how you upload a photo from LR? I am not certain how large to make the image so that it is the correct size for posting! I am new to sharing my work on a website. Also a brand new 365er!

Your images are stunning!

January 13th, 2014
Im a newbie, and loved reading this and looking at the photos you have taken, you have given me a new angle on things, thank you for the tips x
January 14th, 2014
I'm a newbie, thank you for the tips. I'm struggling with remembering to grab my camera every morning before going to work.
I shot in Auto for a while but for this project am trying to not use auto at all, lately I've been using aperture priority but am going to try using full manual mode once I feel comfortable doing so.
January 17th, 2014
As a newbie I feel very inspired, and a little humbled, by your beautiful photos and wise words.... Have you been here before?
January 19th, 2014
Many thanks from another newbie!
January 19th, 2014
Great list.. today is day one!
January 22nd, 2014
Loved the suggestions... concise and visual. Good tips in the thread too.
January 25th, 2014
Just happened upon your list today. Thank you for taking the time to put this thoughtful list and photos together. There were several points you made that will certainly help me. Liked the tips others have contributed also, so Thanks All!
January 28th, 2014
Thank you
January 30th, 2014
Great tips - will revisit".....
February 6th, 2014
Very useful list. thanks!
February 6th, 2014

February 6th, 2014
Thank you for the great tips, really useful for us newbies.
January 2nd, 2015
Thanks for posting theses tips. I just joined this community and posted my first photograph and am really excited to start this project.
January 2nd, 2015
That was so enjoyable and such great tips!
January 3rd, 2015
@squamloon wow! Thank you so much for this list. I just began my 365 project January 1st and felt a bit overwhelmed by the dedication it will take to stay on task. But your post has eased my hesitation and I will definitely keep a lot of these tips in mind as I begin my journey. Thank you!
January 3rd, 2015
@jesco I'm so glad. Enjoy the ride!
January 3rd, 2015
Superb post, thank you, thank you, thank you!
January 3rd, 2015
just starting my own project and i enjoyed reading through these tips, will definitely remind myself of them in the future!!
i especially love the quote on number 3, could i maybe add that to my profile as a little reminder for me and anyone who will visit??
January 5th, 2015
@weemidge @clairebearni great article for tips :)
January 6th, 2015
Thanks so much for the link to this Jim, great tips.
January 6th, 2015
Nice... I posted a topics that asked pretty much you answer. I think I need to keep point #3 (Don't be a perfectionist. As someone said so succinctly a year ago, it’s 365 photos, not 365 masterpieces.) in mind often.
January 6th, 2015
This is awesome advice, thanks!
January 6th, 2015
HAH! Here we are a year later, reading my original comment...I still haven't bought Lightroom!
January 10th, 2015
January 10th, 2015
This is brilliant! I'm bookmarking it for days when I get discouraged.
January 11th, 2015
Really useful for me and all the other newbies. Loved your shots too! I'll keep these in mind. Thank you!
January 11th, 2015
Thank You! this is sensational and will be very useful to reflect on and keep on track as my journey progresses
January 12th, 2015
Just the inspiration I needed! Thank you!
January 15th, 2015
This is useful and motivating, thanks!
January 17th, 2015
Thank you for the list! Makes me feel less intimidated by my decision to do this!
January 18th, 2015
Excellent list. Liked the humour and relaxed tone plus some excellent shots. Thank you :)
January 22nd, 2015
This is fantastic!
January 23rd, 2015
Many thanks for this 2 lines

" If you think you should have captured it, stop, go back, and capture it."
"There will be sad days. Let the camera help."
February 12th, 2015
Great advice! I'm a newbie and today is day 7. I appreciate no.3 the most, will look at Lightroom and I was guilty of too much editing yesterday as I used an iPhone as didn't have my camera with me (no. 1). So thank you for the inspiration going forward.
February 17th, 2015
It goes without saying that you certainly struck a chord with everyone here on 365! Your list with accompanying photos made for brilliant examples! I'd never thought to do as Taffy @taffy suggested and check out similar cameras; good idea! The longer I've been here, the more I check exif information and have fond it helpful. Thanks for a terrific meeting place here! It was wonderful!
March 1st, 2015
Thanks for sharing your tips and advice, I will certainly be taking a few on board as this is day one for me!
March 2nd, 2015
It is my third year and I find this post more than welcome! Thank you for advice :) :) :)
March 3rd, 2015
Great advise. Thanks!
March 5th, 2015
Great List! Thank you so much. haha #18 i can relate to.
March 30th, 2015
Wonderful advice for a newbie like me. Hanging onto 9,18 & 19.
April 1st, 2015
Great suggestions, even if it was from 2013, it's still relevant today! Thanks for sharing! :)
April 7th, 2015
Lightroom is awesome! Thanks for the tips.
April 25th, 2015
Haha. I find the rule of thirds annoying as heck. I love breaking it "just because." :)
April 25th, 2015
Whoa 6,555 something views? You are a rock star!
June 6th, 2015
Thank you. I'm a newbie here (started my project on 1st of April) Love your advice. You are a great inspiration.
July 4th, 2015
I really needed to read this. I've lost a bit of my motivation for photography here lately, and I really hate that. I need to read #3 over and over. I've recently become discouraged because I haven't been picking up my camera near as often as i should and it's starting to show in my work. Going to try and take these tips to heart and get back in the saddle! Last year I started packing my camera every where I went (my purse weighs a ton now, but that's okay!), and I chucked my tripod and even my reflector discs in my trunk. Now, I just need to actually use them. =)
July 22nd, 2015
Wonderful, thank you!!!
August 4th, 2015
Great advice (even if this is an old post)! My main take-away is #3, "try not to be a perfectionist!" Definitely need to keep those words close as I practice taking better pictures!
August 22nd, 2015
Number 12 really speaks to me right now.
September 15th, 2015
I just started, so these are great tips.
September 22nd, 2015
I've just started and will be referring to these tips again! Thank you.
September 30th, 2015
I'm looking at starting my own project, I had a friend that took part a couple of years ago.
October 1st, 2015

You may have the feature to have the rule of thirds grid on your screen when you shoot.....
October 5th, 2015
Thank you for this!
October 6th, 2015
Great tips and I appreciate that you wrote these for us newbies.
October 8th, 2015
Wonderful list ...Thanks for taking the time to compile these tips and photos to illustrate them! Very well done!
October 27th, 2015
As a newbie on here, I m thinking that I am not in the right forum here. I am also sure that I do not have the same kind of camera as al of you. I own a auto focus camera and the other camera is my Iphone that I take pictures with. I have been on my 365project for not very long.
November 4th, 2015
@cindi1958 It really doesn't matter what you take a photo with just take the shot for yourself post and then enjoy looking back after a year :-)
November 13th, 2015
Thanks. This is my first day! So great advice. Looking forward to the discipline of it and the 'lifetime learner" attitude...
December 2nd, 2015
Thanks for the tips. Been using LR for awhile. Wouldn't be without it. Looking forward to being here.
December 14th, 2015
Very helpful set of tips here thank you for sharing them and with pictures to :-)
December 29th, 2015
Thank you for this post..I have signed up and getting familiar with this site for the next couple of days...will begin on the 1st. But needed to take the big step and then saw your post so perfect!!
January 1st, 2016
Newbie here - TY so much for your advice and taking the time to do this. love how you have illustrated each point with a relevant photo :)

Great tips, could have used this advice when I joined 365 back in 2011 then got so overwhelmed I left for 4 years. I wouldn't add anything to your list other than adding to Number 1, to ALWAYS take your camera when you go outside (for whatever reason) .
November 2nd, 2016
Thanks for the advice!! Looking forward to getting started! :D

I have a question, not sure if this is the right spot...
I've just started, not even an amateur photographer but want/need a hobby and ready to focus on something new.

So here's the question, sometimes I struggle deciding which ONE picture to post.
And I see many post more than one each day.
Is is ok to post more than one?
Should I just choose one as my...day 10/365 and then post others in a different album if I want?
Or is it really supposed to be, just one picture an day?
Thanks for any thoughts

@susan727 Hi Susan, it's ABSOLUTELY okay. Your project, your rules. :^)
December 6th, 2016
It's so fun to see that my post has stayed on the Tips'n Tricks page for all this time. I've been away, but hope to come back and do this again, so I'm re-reading my own advice. :^)
December 9th, 2016
@squamloon i read these when I started and I've just read them again and I love them more. I don't do all the list which I should, but they are all spot on. I didn't think my sad days would be so sad this year, but they were and the camera has helped loads. Wel done!
December 10th, 2016
@emma78 Thank you so much.

I just briefly checked out your project, and, while I know I'm going to be regularly envious of your paradise, I followed you. :^)

@squamloon thanks for the follow!

this is a little off topic but how do i put a profile picture?...and that was a fantastic tip list I will keep these in mind.
February 21st, 2017
@klworley365 Go to More: Account settings, then click on Picture. And welcome to 365!

@squamloon Thank you very much, and thanks for the welcome
March 4th, 2017
Great tips, and I loved how you used photos to illustrate. I started on Jan. 1, and at that time I intended to do it for at least a month and see what I thought. Now I think I am hooked for the year :)
March 5th, 2017
Thanks for the tip. I was hoping for a tip on how to post a profile picture. There doesn't seem to be anything in the FAQ's except how to deal with problems changing a profile picture.
June 22nd, 2017
@squamloon thanks this is super helpful!
July 20th, 2017
Thanks so much! Thanks for #12..Now I'm going to throw my tripod in the car and buy a macro!

Thanks for this. I’m the newbie and need all the help I can get, especially with no.5, I am really struggling with getting to grips with the 3 essentials! 😕 but I will continue to keep trying.
April 7th, 2019
As a newbie, I really enjoyed reading the list... and I particularly liked numbers 3, 7, 8 and 15.
Kindest regards Angela
April 14th, 2019
how do I show more than one photo in a post? I see some posts that have two or three shots. Not sure how to do this. Thanks.
February 24th, 2021
Thank you for the list; however, as a newbie I was lead to your post on how to change your profile pic. Can't seem to find how to do this.
May 26th, 2021
Thankyou. Very useful and thought provoking

@squamloon Awesome, thank you so much. Very helpful.

A great list to use for inspiration moving forward. I’ve tried to do this a few times, and have not made it far in. This is the year to change that.
January 6th, 2022
I am just beginning and it is awesome to find this list. So thank you @SquamLoon. I really loved it #3 and I was positive about #10 but I did not know how those are called.
January 17th, 2022
Thanks or the list. Very helpful and inspiring.
February 7th, 2022
I'm a beginner and still figuring out how to submit and enter the challengers. I just uploaded my first photos 2 days ago and the reason I've joined is to learn and you have given me some good advice and tips thanks
February 15th, 2022
Hello, I’m new to 365 in January and have been enjoying the challenges although with every day that goes by it becomes more of a struggle to find something of interest to photograph, especially if not venturing anywhere. I’ve only just found your Tips - thank you, they are all very useful. I look forward to following you.
