Having complete creative license on a project can sometimes feel more daunting than liberating, but fret not. These tips to breaking photographer’s block may help you find the inspiration you need.
For example, trying to recreate a famous photo can be a great exercise in understanding how a great photograph was made and give you not only a deeper appreciation for it, but the technical knowledge on how to do it.
Also, the art of the self-portrait is an exercise in representing yourself. Most people will do this by either taking a conventional portrait shot, or a picture that involves them doing something they enjoy, but you can take it to the next level by breaking out of your element and showing your audience a side of you they may never have imagined. Don’t be afraid to don a Santa Claus hat and yell at a stuffed mouse.
Another interesting approach is to set out on a walk and take a photo every 100 steps. This technique forces you to find an interesting shot in a location you may never have considered photographing.
