I have become somewhat obsessed with photography. Now, I will go back to the same place and retake photos I have taken before in the belief I can improve on what I have taken before.
The initial difference was that I understood what AV meant and stopped using auto settings and began taking control. For a long time I simply set my camera because Neil said...But now I understand why I make the choices I do, albeit I still get it wrong on occasion.
Learning was incremental, at my pace and in my time, with no pressure.
