Get out there and practice, practice, practice. Cameras don’t make good photographers, unfortunately many think this is so. A good camera and lens is just the start but training the eye to see things that others don’t is a life long task. Being in the right place at the right time, judging weather conditions, good planning etc. All these things come with experience over the years. Photography can be a lonely job involving a lot of personal sacrifice, it can become an obsession. I too, although only a hobbyist wonder why I get so involved in what I do, well, it has to do with passion and getting that perfect shot where everything comes together at once.
