At the core of what you’re about to learn is a very simple, easy to learn secret. But it’s the simplicity that makes it so powerful. It’s used by Fortune 500 companies, the most successful tech firms, and by now I’ve applied it to photography. And that secret is to
Use the same process when taking photos.
Sounds dead simple, right? It is. But how does it help photography?
Simple. By repeating the EXACT SAME STEPS in creating a macro or closeup photo with your smartphone, you’ll skyrocket the number of great shots that you take.
Of course, this depends on one important aspect. That the steps you’re taking will lead to a good shot.
For me, it took many months and fruitless photo sessions until I FINALLY NAILED THE PROCESS. And that’s I documented it to create a repeatable process.
Of course, anyone could do this.
Which begs the question, why isn’t everyone doing this?
I struggled with this question for some time. I knew that everyone gets some good shots here and there, so why not follow the same process that worked for those shots they took?
Then two things dawned on me.
First, most photography enthusiasts probably don’t take CAREFUL NOTES as to HOW they take their shots. SO when one was successful they didn’t realize why, but were just happy that it was good.
And second, most people don’t have an analytical background. I have a background in the financial sector in a role that deals with strict processes. And in my environment, when things go wrong, people lose money and people get fired. So I’m trained to be thorough.
