    I KNOW I said I'd only give you 3 Tips, and then I gave you 4! The audacity!! LOL. Consider it a bonus tip! And that with 3+ Million views, who's going to upload a new video for a typo? Not me 🙂

    Who cares about RAW format my JEPG turn out good and I don't have to spend hours messing around in expensive editing software like lightroom. I don't do any photography for money it's only for FUN!!!

    Firstly, I don't even photograph, I'd still like to know more about it, and secondly, my tip as a.. well, person, is to never directly look into the camera. If it's not like, seductive, or mysterious, or something… it creeps me out, and if it creeps me out, chances are, it will creep other people out too.

    I expected a ton of real mistakes … and an advanced description how to avoid them.
    Instead of that … you only told about 4 (!!) tips at all !! … so where are the "mistakes" ???

    By the way … there are a couple more very important things to look at … if they are interesting in a video titled as "mistakes" …
    I*m sad that you forgot even calling them.

    Therefore the title of your video is choosen wrong …

    Or shoot with Pentax. Exposure is almost not important. Few F-stops overexposed images are correctable and several f-stops underexposed images are perfectly fine.

    you don't have to look at your images everytime you try to get the right exposure, just look at your meter in your viewfinder… select the right metering mode and it can be your best friend!
