What was the best piece of advice you got in 2008 regarding photography?

Mine was: Go to canon.com, download your camera's manual and print it on 8 1/2 x 11 paper, and make the image on the page as big as you can.

It gave me plenty of room to write on the pages and the font was large enough to read easily!

What's the best advice you got in 2008?

The best advice I got was a few days ago.

I watched an interview of the famous portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Ms. Leibovitz indicated that all her work were projects (gigs, basically). She always had a customer and a result in mind.

So, the best advice I could extrapolate from all this is "find an audience" - that's the best way to learn.

You'll always learn more if your working towards a result that will be seen and appreciated by people.

Over time your audience may widen to a handful of people or to millions of people. It's up to you, really.
