All good suggestions.

You don't say what gear you have, but assuming you have a zoom lens, a good exercise is to shoot the same scene or subject at different focal lengths. This will teach you that moving your feet is the only thing that changes perspective. That includes back, forward, left, right, up, or down. You will also learn that sometimes moving back in zooming in yields a better result. Other times, moving closer and zooming out does. Learning to see this and anticipate it is a very valuable skill.

Whatever reading or research you do, make sure to include shooting. The best way to make the lessons stick is to practice.

Thanks, I do have a zoom lens so I'll have a go at this exercise, it sounds interesting.

Don't worry, I am planning on concentrating mostly on shooting, and whenever I read something I plan on practicing it by shooting!
