Episode 44 – The Worst Photography Advice You Should Never Follow

Have you ever received really bad photography advice? I find that anyone who says that you ALWAYS have to do X or that you should NEVER do Y are usually wrong…except when it comes to taking off your lens cap before a shoot.

You should never do that. Not if you want to make sure you get lots of details in your shadows…

I reached out to you, our listeners, as well as folks on Reddit to submit the absolute worst advice you have received. Anthony and I discuss the bad advice, as well as a few other topics that pop up.

Recorded back in the halcyon days of the early pandemic, I give you episode 44 of The Nerdy Photographer Podcast:
