I have not picked up my camera in more than a month and now that lack of momentum has stopped me from continuing to shoot. Thats unacceptable if I wish to become the type of photographer I want to be.
So in this episode I share 10 motivational photography tips to help you (and me) to pick back up the camera and get to work!
#1: You dont live in a magical location. Get over it
#2: Give yourself permission to shoot aimlessly with no end goal
#3: Start fresh with a new folder on your computer of the photographer who you are now
#4: Capture the mundane parts of everyday life (Start every day taking a photo of your coffee)
#5: Shoot in JPG to remove the burden of having to edit your photos after you shoot
#6: Go for a walk. The more youre out, the more youll see interesting things to capture.
#9: Set your camera to shoot in Black and White rather than edit the photo later. This will help you to see better compositions and focus on moment.
#10: If you have multiple cameras, sell one and buy a photo book. A photo book will inspire you to shoot in just 3-4 pages. Something scrolling instagram for an hour cant even do.
