In this week’s podcast, I share ten tips for making your photographic process more creative. I know the creative process can sometimes become a rut for myself and many of my friends. It can be easy to fall into a pattern of insanity, doing the same thing over and over again, wishing for more. I don’t think there is ever one magic tip that will work for everyone, so I have come up with ten ideas that will hopefully give you something to try if you feel like you can’t get out of first gear on your photographic process right now.
Here are the ten concepts to consider when looking to jump-start the creative day.
- Follow the breadcrumbs (notice what keeps showing up in your space)
- A big sheet of paper brainstorming session
- Shapes and things brainstorming session
- Collect things
- Color your world
- Seek out inspiration
- Set boundaries
- Embrace failure
- Embrace crazy
