If it's going to university or just into town, it doesn't matter whether digital or analog, I often carry a camera around with me. Not having a camera with me, I feel like I'm missing so many moments! This doesn't mean just having it in your bag, but actively carrying it in your hand!
1. You are way more aware of your surroundings
Whenever I have a camera in my hand, I am actively looking around for things to photograph. Be it an interesting play between light & shadow, or the person crossing the street. Your senses heighten and you become aware of so many new things. Your everyday boring walk to work suddenly becomes a playground for your creativity!
2. The less gear you carry, the more photos you can take
Think about it, if you are bringing 2 camera bodies, 4 lenses and a tripod, how will you be able to quickly take a photo? You'll probably want to set up your tripod, change lenses and adjust your camera so much, that you miss a lot of shots. That's why its easier, if you walk around with a minimalistic camera setup. For me, this means walking around with just one camera body and a fixed focal length lens (Prime) attached to it. In this case, your feet are eventually becoming your zoom lens. Don't spend all your energy on lugging gear around, rather take great photographs with the gear you own.
3. "Your first 10000 photographs are your worst."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson
This one is pretty self explanatory. The more quality pictures you take, the better you will get at photography.
