One great way to be a better photographer is to merge what you love. Take shots related to your hobbies or what you love. I love basketball I often take photos of basketball hoops and courts whenever I go to new ones. Your love of your subject will come through the photos making it even better.
It’s like when you take a photo of your lover your emotions and their emotions can truly shine through. This makes the photos better in my opinion. So merge your love of photography with outside interests and you will find yourself taking more quality photos and you will expand as a photographer.
