If one of your New Year's resolution is to improve your photography, learn some tips to become a better photographer in 2011.

 

Always Keep your Camera with You

If you want to take better photos, take more photos. A good way to accomplish this is to always take your camera with you where-ever you go. Never leave your home without a camera of some sort. You just never know when the opportunity is going to present itself to take a spectacular photo!

Plan Regular Formal Shoots

If you want to build your portfolio, plan for regular photo shoots once a week, once a fortnight, or even once a month if that is all your schedule allows. It's good practice to go through the motions of planning all the details, finding the models and props, setting up the lighting, and getting the shots in the bag. Make sure to study your images and work out how you can improve your formal shoots every time.

Setup some photo projects for yourself

Photo projects are great for focusing you onto one or two things. You may want to post a photo online everyday for the year, maybe you want to take pictures of sunsets at every state capital. The list of possibilities here is endless. Start cooking up themes now so that when January 1 rolls around you are ready to start busting out some great project work. These can even be personal projects like building a calendar of your images. Then you give this calendar away to friends and family. Choose things that are both fun and challenging to you.

Join a photography club

If you want to be successful in photography, you don't have to go it alone. One of the easiest ways is to join a photography club. You can discuss ideas and compare techniques. Many also have specially organised events from professional photographers and the opportunities to join other members in holding exhibitions.

Try New Things

The worst thing you can do is take shot after shot of the same things, with the same settings. Even if there’s something you’re brilliant at, it’s always good to make changes to make sure you don’t get complacent. You might learn something that will improve what you are already great at but it’s even more important for beginners, trying new things will definitely speed up the learning process.
