In summary, a high volume of deliberate practice is needed to become an expert. Being able to know what a good photograph is and isn’t, knowing what and how to improve from the current status to the goal, photographing, including editing and printing a lot, getting quality feedback from good mentors and entering competitions that deliver actionable feedback and having the right mind-set and plenty of time to practise are effective ways to improving one's photographic skills.
