Always take your time and think about your composition and how your final product will look (job/situation permitting)

If you're looking to work for pay never forget the fact that business needs supercede photographic wants

Always search for reviews of equipment you are thinking of buying, especially here in the forum.

Never buy anything on credit unless you have a way to pay it off quickly. Debt is not your friend.

Never say "always" because there will always be an exception.

On the other hand, never say "never" because there will always be an exception.
