Become a confident photographer in seven steps

Ah, photography... Who wouldn't drop a boring office day job to get lost all day behind a trusty camera, and give people a showcase of the world as we see it? If only we had the confidence to take great photos...

Fortunately, photographer Natalie Norton has put together a list with 7 steps in Digital Photography School that can help you to feel less intimidated when taking pictures. This is the most important of them all, according to the author:
If you really want to gain confidence, you should be out shooting as much as you possibly can. Perhaps it’s every day on your lunch hour. If that’s the only window you have to consistently squeeze it in, fine. Just be out shooting frequently and consistently.

As a clean installer, I find equally important the one that talks about setting goals, because we should have clear objectives about what we want to achieve, specially in something as vast and self rewarding as photography. What do you do to show confidence in your photos? Write about that in the comments.
