You probably clicked on this because you want to be a content creator who creates at massive levels, not that alone but productive as well. After watching some great photographers talk about their processes on YouTube and observing some that I admire in real life, I want to share with you only five key habits that will be ten times your productivity as a photographer.

Habit #1 — they work deeply

Do not allow yourself to be distracted. Choose one task to work on and do that until you’re finished, you’ve got to keep working. Do not allow yourself to be distracted unless that distraction can be helpful to you, but is there anything like a helpful distraction?

Habit #2 — they believe failure is part of the process

These men and women have failed countless times. When I started out as a photographer, I always looked at their results until I started watching them explain the process they go through before sharing an image online. This is one thing I have realised; these people do not back down from a fight. It’s always a win they’re looking for, and if they don’t get the win, they go again. Failure does not hinder them, so they embrace it, in order to reach their goal.
The world’s best photographers embrace failure as a natural part of the learning process. They understand that not every shot will be perfect and use their mistakes as an opportunity to learn and grow. By embracing failure, they are able to push themselves further and create truly exceptional work.

Habit #3 — they practice daily

The best photographers in the world make it a habit to practice their craft every single day. Whether it’s taking a few shots, editing images or reading about photography, they make sure to dedicate time each day to hone their skills and improve their craft.
In photography, the only way to improve is to take risks and experiment. The best photographers in the world constantly try new things and push themselves to explore different techniques and styles. This can involve experimenting with new equipment, trying out new editing techniques, or simply pushing the boundaries of what they know.

Habit #4 — they study the masters or those ahead of them

The world’s best photographers study the work of other great photographers before them. They analyze their techniques, compositions, lighting, and editing styles. They also seek to understand how these photographers’ works impacted the industry, and use this knowledge to create their own style.

Habit #5 — Stay Inspired

Finally, the best photographers stay inspired by staying engaged with the world around them. They read photography books, attend exhibitions, and even watch movies and TV shows to get ideas for their next project. They also stay open to new ideas and feedback from others, which helps them stay motivated and continue to improve.
