Photography FAQ 3 answers some more of the most frequently asked photography questions you girls and boys send in. They're based on questions I get asked through our Tell Us What You Want page which is also where you can suggest complete video ideas. I can't promise - but this is what all our content is based on.

Many of your questions are too big to answer in a few sentences so the links below and in the video will take you to other films which explain more.

Some of these photography questions are more about the photographers’ attitude and mindset than they are about cameras, settings and equipment. The fastest way to learn photography is to get out there and practise with your camera and not spend days and weeks researching because you’re worried you might not get it ‘right’.

When things don’t turn out the way we wanted them to there’s always a lesson to be learnt. So look at the image that didn’t work and ask yourself why it didn’t work. Then try it again doing something differently.

I get a lot questions asking me how to prevent dust and dirt getting onto their camera. If you’re out there doing photography then you can’t! Dust and dirt will always get onto your kit and it’s easy to clean it off. A camera isn’t a surgical tool which has to be kept sterile.

And once again we’ll explore the age old question about which camera is ‘best’. My views are possibly rather well known on this issue..
