I am a beginner photographer. I recently joined the photographytalk forum to learn more about the art form. I believe that sharing personal experiences with one another can help us understand the peculiarities of photography and grow the community as well. So drop your best photography tips.

Welcome!  I am a relatively new member too.  What type of camera do you have?  What lenses?

The best thing I can suggest to learn more about photography (aside from asking questions to the more serious pros on this forum), is to check out YouTube videos.

Keeping a DSLR in "AUTO" just turns it into a very expensive "Point -n- Shoot" camera that you can buy anywhere for not even $100 dollars.  The first thing to do is get out of AUTO and experiment with PSAM (Program Mode, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, and full blown Manual).  Start with Aperture Priority, where you set the Aperture (f-stop.... f/2.8, f/4.0, f/8.0, f/11, etc..) and the camera will do the rest and compensate to provide proper exposure.  Then play around with the other settings and have a great time learning more and more about your camera's possibilities! :-)

hello from another new member.
  • never stop learning.
  • start by learning the rules and then learn how to break them. 
  • know your equipment and use it often.  you don't need to make amazing photos every time you go out, but you do need to learn the muscle memory needed to adjust settings without looking and to practice your exposure settings.
  • study composition from photography as well as other art forms such as drawing and paintings, esp. works from the masters. 
  • learn to get the image right in camera but don't be afraid of post processing. 
  • learn to critique your own work and to take critique from others. 
  • you don't need the best and most expensive gear to make great photos, learn with what you have and later on you can buy what you need. 
  • print and frame your photos, images look very different as physical prints than they do on a computer screen.
