Absolutes Rules of Photography: Unhelpful Tips for Beginner Photographers



Browsing through the entries of this blog, one might think that photography is all work and no play, something that is to be approached with absolute solemnity and only when one is mature enough to differentiate between aperture and ISO. Nothing could be further from the truth as all photographers started their passion for photographers breaking a few rules here and there. If you've just bought a camera, or you're just looking to refresh your memory, these "Useful advices for photographers" by Ivars Gravlejs might be exactly what you're looking for.

Ivars Gravlejs is a photographer and artist with numerous projects and accolades to his name, but it's his collection of photography rules for complete idiots that garnered him online attention. For two years, he slowly accumulated these tips, publishing in a weekly newspaper until he collected 78 in-your-face rules for photography. However, he takes these tongue-in-cheek lessons to the extreme to the point that they become a parody of the medium itself.

Here are a few more examples of his excellent anti-tutorial.









Check out more obvious tips for beginner photographers over at Ivars Gravlejs' website. Alternatively, all 78 parody rules can be found here.
