Learning From Mistakes

Is “Learning From Mistakes” a Thing? 

It is a famous saying, but does Learning from Mistakes work? In many cases, it is achievable. However, there are a few requirements for successfully learning from your mistakes.

For instance, can you be a better photographer just by learning from your mistakes? In this article, I look into this myth and try to find the answer.

Can You Improve Photography Skills By Learning From Mistakes?

Generally speaking, it is possible to learn from mistakes. However, you need to recognize the error first. So, the answer to this is not that simple. Let me explain why:

Firstly, a photographer needs to know the fundamental requirements for good pictures. To name just one, you need to know about the Exposure, and how to set or control it. If you cannot detect an under-exposed or over-exposed photo, you are not able to learn from your mistakes.

Secondly, when you detect the error, you need to know how to avoid the same mistakes in the future. For instance, you took a photo of a sunset and the colour of the sky is washed out. You know that the image is over-exposed. Congratulation, you caught the mistake, but how to avoid it in the next sunset photo?

Education Leads To Success

Education is the first stepping stone for a successful start in any field. Therefore, all you need is an excellent photography workshop to get started in the right direction. Our photography classes equip you with the techniques that you need to detect and fix the problems in your pictures.

Education leads you to address the issues.

By adjusting the exposure and a little post processing, I managed to have a gorgeous image. I learned from my mistake, when I can avoid it later.


There are two requirements for learning from mistakes; Detecting the errors and avoiding them. 

So, the correct answer is as follow:

You can learn from mistakes only after learning the skills. 

Our photography and editing programs are the first steps to a flourishing photography journey by learning from mistakes. In other words, Education and Practice.
