Hi, long time reader first time poster.
I'm already a good month or so into learning composition via Nuke/AE and was wondering, from a professional point of view, what other essential skills are needed to give my work that nice veneer. I heard photography skills, although not essential, really do help with compositing. I've been a lifelong doodler/drawer and I occasionally take my phone camera out to capture a sunset or two. I've dabbled into C programming, looking forward to learning some python for Nuke gizmos soon. So besides having a shaky foundation on photography, art, and programming, what do you think I should do to elevate these fundamental skills in order to become a better compositor?

Hi Long time reader,

I would look into a good school to help improve your skills. Lost Boys Learning (Lost Boys Studios - School of Visual Effects) has a great program to get you industry ready. I would check out some of their stuff and alumni's reels. Impressive stuff.
