Quick tips for better photography

I was asked for some quick advice on how to shoot better images. Here's my brief list:

Limit yourself to taking only one photo. That way you'll think hard before pressing the button.

Don't use the zoom, use your legs. 

Try different perspectives. 

Spend money on the lens, not the camera. 

Go on a photo walk with just one fixed lens.

Have depth, i.e. have something in the foreground. 

Look at the whole picture when you compose, i.e. take the background into consideration. 

Play with exposure and focus. 

Shoot in Raw, learn how to use programs like lightroom. 

Have fun.
