After some weeks out of this community I'm back here - untill I get too much busy with ordinary things again. As some you know, I'm new to the art of photography, my motivation was not spoiling very important trips photographs again. I mean, not that my pictures of my vacations on August 2010 were horrible, but they were simply too 'simple' for such a special moment. Then I started reading about photography and practising a little. I've noticed that I've learnt many thigns so far, some that sound very obvious after someone tells you.
So, my question is, how long did it take you to feel that "O, now I'm really better than the average in photography, it's not a matter of lucky again. I can make pleasent pictures consistently". And how often do you usually practise it? I'm not sure about the amount of professionals or semi-professional (someone who make some money with photography, but also has a "main" job) we have here.
Thank you for the attention =)
