1. Ideas for Creative Photographers: Bin the zoom

Zoom lenses make it very easy to change composition without moving or really exploring your subject.

They also cloud your vision because there’s a tendency to fiddle about with the focal length as soon as you spot a potential subject rather than really look at it.

Suddenly you’ll be forced to move around your subject until you find the right vantage point and perhaps a totally new angle or subject.
