  • Must add reading photography books in your schadule

  • Must use all your electronic devices with full of care especially your laptop, mobile, printer, camera etc because in the lockdown situation you don't find any good technician to repair your all devices.  keep it in the safe mode. 
  • Do not consider lockdown as a FAMILY HOLIDAY, It's a situation and must treat cautiously, must follow all the required safety protection.
  • last but not the least, Eat less, sleep less, do exercise otherwise extra weight can make you lazier and fatty and this will be a big problem. Being a photographer we need to be fit and active at all the time.
