I think it's important to keep on pushing the camera shutter. To be familiar with the cameras operation menus and so on. The better acquainted you are the more you can get out of your equipment. When I say keep pushing the shutter it's exactly that. I have to make myself photograph in the studio or take the camera with me on walks; just so I can practice so I don't lose touch with my camera. This is true of all photography equipment. Keep pushing the cameras shutter photograph anything; I wont have a plan most of the time. I must admit the pictures will not be the best but that's not the point. Setup still life in the studio or street photography it's all practice so beneficial.
