Sometimes as creatives, we simply get burned out. It can feel like your passion may no longer be alive. A time in your photographic life where just the idea of picking up your camera is exhausting. So what can you do? One main approach is to simply walk away from your camera. But I find sometimes is your mind and body needs a spark, or to better put it, a jump start. Photography is like a relationship, it ebbs and flows. Being introduced to new things add a new spark into life, you breathe new life into your creative processes. You need a creative release.
When I'm in a photographic slump, two things always seem to turn me around.
Go on a Photowalk.
Photowalking has taken the world by storm, and has become one of the fastest growing activities throughout the land. Photowalking enriches, invigorates, and expands what we truly appreciate. Photowalking helps us experience life more fully, more completely.”
“Photowalking is one of the fastest growing social activities in the world!”
You'll meet new people, and with new people, come new ideas.
Take Part in a Photo Challenge
Photo challenges will force you out of your day to day routinue. New challenges, spark new ideas. the picture above was simply to create this technique without the aid of photoshop or other photo editing software.
