If you are anything like me you go through highs and lows with your photography. I have come up with 8 tips to out you get out of your lows and to help keep you on your highs!
- No.01Participate in Photo Challenges
I realize not everyone has children or pets to take photos of. Photographing still life can be a challenge! There are MANY photography challenges out there for you to participate in. Here are just a few I thought were creative and useful!
- No.02Creativity Exercises
I recently started a new category on my blog where I will post creativity exercises once a month. This is a great way to keep those photography juices flowing.
- No.03Focus on one skill for a week.
- No.04Ask for Critiques
Don’t ask your mom or your best friend. Find someone with a good eye and ask them for a serious critique. You will learn so much and be challenged by this activity.
- No.05Take Self Portraits.
- No.06Change your lens.
Put a new lens on your camera and shoot with it until your photos start to look the same. Then put on a different lens. If you only have one lens find a friend with the same brand of camera and ask if they want to trade lenses for a week.
- No.07Look at photographers that inspire you.
- No.08Take a workshop.
This is probably the BEST way to get out of a rut. If I am ever stuck and take a workshop, I am quickly snapped out of it. Click here to learn more about Ultimate Intro to Photography.
