8、 I take pictures of myself every day

It is estimated that the girls are professional masters , But it's not about taking a picture of yourself with your mobile phone and your mouth , It's about letting you shoot yourself with your camera , Or looking in the mirror , Or tripods .

Don't complain about no models , You are your own best model .

9、 Shoot with a focal length you're not good at

Don't let perfectionism hurt you , Learn to assess focus and shoot blind , Follow your instincts and instincts , You'll get more surprises .
