I have been watching a few tv shows and movies recently where the breakup around Valentine’s Day was a central theme of the plot. As I sat there in front of the screen, I realized that there are also some things in the photographic practice that I needed to have a hard conversation with. In effect, I need to breakup with some bad habits.
It is easy to develop bad habits. They can show up in our desires for equipment or software to make our “job easier.” They might show up in the way we approach our work. Some of our bad habits are there, and we don’t even know why we are doing what we do, but we continue because that is what we think is supposed to happen.
In this week’s podcast, I take a look at some of my habits and the type of people who surround my photography and try to figure out what I should keep and what bad habits should be kicked to the curb. I would imagine in your photographic practice that there might be a list of things you do that once removed might give you more time and energy for the good parts of your creative practice.
